Sham hamwitch

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Sham hamwitch is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest X. It is a porcine spellcaster that takes pride in being an alchemist.


Sham hamwitches are the rarefied form of the more common Sham hatwitch. Its fur has become scarlet and it has replaced its sorcerer's cap with a headpiece made of silver with gold trim. According to its bestiary descriptions in X and Treasures, the sham hamwitch's hat is said to be its own alchemic creation.
