Wax murderer

From Dragon Quest Wiki

A Wax murderer is a monster in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics[edit]

Wandering wispy monsters that wield and wave a massive sharp knife for slashing at prey, using the lit wick on the top of their horrific waxy heads to fling Frizz fire magic. They usually creep up on unsuspecting travelers exploring haunted manors, monstrously leaping and lunging out of the dark. Wax drips from atop their heads, leaving behind a trail of ghastly grease that can be used to track their whereabouts.

The wax murderer appears as an evil monster in the Ghost Busting DLC Tablet. They're on par with the usual strength of the monster from Dragon Quest V, complete with the same firey spell.
