Treeface

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Treeface is a recurring monster that was introduced in Dragon Quest II.

Characteristics[edit]

A wicked parody of the traditional Treant of Western fantasy, the treeface is a terrible tyrant of the timberlands that mimics surrounding forest biomes in order to ambush plucky adventurers. Brighter than their bark would imply, they use their own leaves to heal themselves when weakened, and are not above fleeing battle when their necks are on the chopping block.

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

Treeface appeared as a B-rank monster of the Nature family at the beginning of the game, but could not be recruited until the limited The Adventure of Dai event. It can be unlocked and can be fully awakened by completing the The Dark Forest stage from Furfang Full Assault at any difficulty. It can also take part in Maam's Battle Road as a party member.
