The tigercub is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. It is a pink and red-furred version of the Great sabrecub, introduced in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 as the infant form of the Striking sabrecat.
Much like their gold and orange-furred cousins, the tigercub has a red mane running down from their head to their back. They have red eyes, spotted fur, and their claws and fangs have not developed yet.
The tigercub makes its debut as a rank F monster of the Beast family. They do not appear in the wild, but foreign masters may have them on their team. It is possible to synthesize a Striking sabrecat by combining four Tigercubs.
Tigercub appears as a C-rank monster of the Beast family. It can be recruited in Chapter 7, Episode 5 or Chapter 13, Episode 8, as well as Troll Super Training quests at intermediate and advanced difficulties. The tigercub can participate in Power Workout: Troll and the Dark sabrecub's Battle Road as a party member.
