Serial quiller

From Dragon Quest Wiki
For the monster vocation in Dragon Quest VII, see Serial quiller (Vocation).

The Serial Quiller is a recurring enemy in the Dragon Quest series that first appeared in Dragon Quest VII. It is a small, yellow electric beast.


Serial quillers are small yellow rodents whose bodies are covered in jagged, jutting quills that look like forking lightning bolts. Their bodies constantly give off electricity, and a stream of sparks stringing behind them as they dart across the battlefield. Serial quillers also have black eyes, large eyebrows that look like lightning bolts, and black toes on each of their digging paws. The quillers are capable of blinding their enemies with lightning flashes before attacking by leaping at foes and biting with their large fanged front teeth. Their names are a pun based on the term "serial killer".

Three serial quillers are faced alongside Bronson in the second battle at the Allblades Arena tournament. It is recommended to take them out quickly to prevent their Dazzleflash ability from becoming a nuisance.


The serial quiller appears to be superficially based on Pikachu, the electric mouse mascot of the Pokémon series. They are both small, yellow rodents associated with electricity.
