Description These reptilian regents can bring down bolts of lightning and exhale gouts of flame, but aren't wild about water or darkness.

Supposedly, when wyrtles' souls depart their bodies, they are absorbed by wonder wyrtles, and earn eternal life.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Appearing as a rarefied monster in this entry, it is more powerful than its debut game and will even run if it's enraged.


  • The wonder wyrtle and its pallet-swaps bear a striking resemblance to the extinct horned turtle Meiolania, which lived approximately in Australia during the Holocene period
