Sculpture vulture

From Dragon Quest Wiki
For the hulking stone man seen in many other games, see Living statue.

The Sculpture vulture is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII.

It is an animated statue of a winged demon.


Pointy purple living statues that stand tall and defy any expectations of being slow and brittle, with skin so strong that it barely even needs the Buff or Kabuff magic they apply to themselves. They slash and lash out with sharp claws and aren't lacking in speed, attacking twice in a single turn and breathing a bone-chilling blast of cold air that smashes through a whole group of surprised onlookers. They can even put unsuspecting enemies to sleep with a glint of their eyes.
