The swinoceros is a monster that appears in both Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest IX.


Swinoceroses are immense, intimidating beasts with thick brown fur that look like rhinoceroses with extra, horrific horns that are perfect for impaling anything they consider a threat. Their thick mane keeps them warm in the wilds and provides another layer of protection for their otherwise vulnerable necks. The two twin massive horns on their back provide more defense from above and are intended to make them look even more intimidating. These beasts attack by charging at enemies and stabbing at them with their sharp horns. They can knock enemies down entirely, sending them temporarily out of action whilst they struggle to get back on their feet. They're also known for saving up their strength to unleash devastating damaging attacks. Their names are a combination of the words "swine" and "rhinoceros".
