The tongue fu fighter is a monster introduced in Dragon Quest VII. It can be found in the Rainbow Mines in Ballymolloy in the past, The Tower in the past, as well as the Emberdale and L'Arca regions in the past.
The tongue fu fighter is a flabby bipedal beast with the appearance of a pink squidgy, squat anteater with wandering white eyes, and a long yellow snot that it's bothersome blue tongue sticks out from. It uses this supple swinging tongue to propel itself into the air and wickedly whip at flummoxed foes, even sometimes licking them into submission with a slobbering action that leaves them shivering with goosebumps. Occasionally they'll even sit back and wistfully watch the party, wasting a whole turn. Their name is a pun based on the term "kung fu fighter".
