The Carnivine is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen, it is a monstrous plant with three flowers that act as mouths.

The body of a carnivine is arranged in three layers, with the bottom composed of its leg-like roots, the middle being made of a circle of large, green leaves, and the top holding its three white, fanged flowers, connected to the leafy section by flexible stems.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart[edit]

The Snapper is a three-star member of the Nature family with a weight of 3. It naturally learns Seal Magic, Save Power and Sleep Hit. Its in-game description reads "Its breath has a sweet scent that lures prey inside."

Etymology[edit]

Carnivine is possibly a spin on the original name, Carnivore Plant, combining carnivore, a being that eats meat, with vine, a tendril-like component found on some plants.

Trivia[edit]

  • The monster shares its name, possibly by coincidence, with Pokémon.
  • Carnivines also bear a thematic similarity to the Piranha Plants of Super Mario fame, though they lack the tropical coloring and mottled appearance.
