From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Skipper is a monster that was introduced in Dragon Quest VIII.


The skipper is a peculiar creature that uses a large leather boot reinforced with spiked iron plates for both shelter and combat. In certain animations, its body is revealed to be a thin tendril hanging from the bottom of its furry head. It will usually first be encountered in the deepest recesses of the Waterfall Cave, and it's a decently powerful monster for that area.
