From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Squidzilla is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first introduced in Dragon Quest III. True to their name, they are an enormous and more aggressive variety of the King squid.


Squidzillas have teal colored bodies with yellow-green tinges on its head, as well as the suckers on its many tentacles. They are more aggressive than their blue cousins, being able to attack twice per turn, and can usually be found in the colder waters of the ocean. In Dragon Quest III, they are the strongest monsters that can be faced in the ocean and are a forced to be reckoned with, especially if several appear in the same battle.
