Aquatic family

From Dragon Quest Wiki
(Redirected from Water family)
A Merking, one of the more emblematic aquatic monsters

The Aquatic family (Japanese Kanji: 水 Hiragana: みず Romanji: Mizu) is a category of monsters Dragon Quest series that are based on water-dwelling animals, or are water-related. Due to lack of a significant number of members in some titles, the marine meanies are split among the other families or are put entirely into the nature family. In Dragon Quest Monsters 2, they were referred to as the water family.

It should be noted that, while aquatic monsters are usually encountered when on board a ship, they are not completely restricted to bodies of water--several species will attempt to make a meal of travelers on dry land.
