The Toxic Zombie is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest II, it is a stronger version of the walking corpse that has become so putrid with decay that it's very touch is poisonous.

Characteristics[edit]

Horrific shambling green skinned undead that have freshly risen from the grave, their fingers and raking nails still covered in their own brand of toxic sludge that can not only poison party members, but can also paralyize with a single scratch. They've been known to be so bloated that they belch out poison gas that can infect an entire party.
