Striking sabrecat

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Striking sabrecat is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line.

When it first debuted, it was a stronger, pink-furred variant of the Sabrecat, but in some spinoff games it became a palette swap of the Great sabrecat instead.

Characteristics[edit]

The original Striking sabrecat resembles the real-world smilodons of the Pleistocene era with pink fur and fearsome solid yellow eyes. This design make a reappearance in Dragon Quest of the Stars, but starting with Monster Battle Road II, the sabrecat became a pink and red-furred palette swap of the Great sabrecat. This design went on to reappear in Joker 3 and Tact, as well.
