Spitnik

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Spitnik is an enemy introduced in Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King. It can be found in the Baccarat region on the Western continent.

Characteristics[edit]

The sputnik is a large, spherical orange monster that resembles an anthropomorphic sun or star. It has a perpetually grinning face, along with a squat nose and beady eyes, and the back of its body is covered with sharp spikes, meant to evoke the image of a star's corona. It also has a smaller satellite with a grinning face orbiting its body that looks like a comet with a long, trailing tail. The spitnik attacks by swallowing its satellite and spitting it at enemies, after which it returns to the spitnik.
