The monsters of Dragon Quest are some of the most recognizable in RPGs, thanks in no small part to Akira Toriyama's distinct designs. Which of the most frequently appearing ones do you like the best?

Slime

Are y- are you confused about which series we're talking about here?

In any case, Sabercats are the best. Whether they're your pets, mounts, or just beasts to slay along the way, they're always awesome

Probably should've just made slimes their own category because they take up most of the list. I've only played two Dragon games so far and I think Arch Demons are my favorite.

But lumping all slimes togerther would defeat the purpose of all their distinct designs and personalities. Nope, multiple slimes is the way to go in this poll. You can't have a DQ game without a large variety of slimes.

I voted Sabercat, but on further reflection I prefer the Slime Knight. It's just so silly: how could a slime possibly make a good mount? And why are the slimes and the knights working together?

Fynn

I think the knights are actually part of the slimes

The slimes can take human form?! Why are they glooping around being slimes, then?

Well, one Healslime became human in canon (http://dragonquest.wikia.com/wiki/Healie), but it's never explained how. Dragon Quest is just whimsical like that.

Either the Dragon or Golem actually.

What game does that dragon show up in?

Fynn

DQ I, for example. It was a pretty big deal there

Looks pretty plain compared to the ones in V.

Well, you know how it is. Art evolution and stuff

All of them? My very favorite is probably the Metal Babble, though. Especially before it was relocalized.

For all the terrible puns in these games, I actually really like the name of the Liquid Metal Slime.

Metal Babble > Metal Bubble Slime > Liquid Metal Slime > Almost any other name in any of the games

+1 for Metal Babble

Healslimes because they're so squishy.
