Tricky Devil

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Tricky Devil is a boss and minor villain in Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.


The tricky devil's appearance is identical to that of the little devil, being a diminutive humanoid Demon with a purple body, a small pair of green wings on its back, a long pointy tail, pointy ears, and a pair of antennae on its head. It attacks by firing beams from these antennae. Much like an imp, the tricky devil has the appearance of a child wearing a devil costume, with its green face poking out of its purple body. It is mischievous and enjoys playing pranks on humans, being responsible for transforming the woodcutter Flint into a dog and destroying the bridge in the Manglegrove, and likes to believe that it's more devious than it actually is. It has a short temper and flies into a range when Erik points out how pathetic it is.

In-game description This little monster likes nothing more than hiding in treasure chests and playing pranks on people, but they tend to go off with a whimper rather than a bang. It might be time to change its name...
