Dragon Quest XI is going down as one of my favorite RPGs of all time. The storyline was great and the characters were endearing. But one of the main parts that stole my heart were the monsters. Why in the heck would the creators make monsters so cute? I mean really, I’m supposed to kill them.
Although there weren’t that many types of monsters and some just varied colors as the story progressed, it was still fun fighting the little cuties. Makes me wonder, am I the monster for wanting to do that?
Here are the top 9 monsters in Dragon Quest XI that are too cute to slay.
These little guys are one of the first monsters you get to fight and I was blown away with the detail. I mean, come on! They have needles for weapons and their bodies are made of what looks to be cotton. TOO CUTE.
No. 2- Hat Hamwitches
Their name alone is cute. I came across these cuties in the The Royal Library. While I loved that level because of the book theme, I loved these pigs who wore witches hats even more.
No.3- Crack-billed Platypunks
Haha, yes, the Platypunks. Enough said, just look at them.
No.4- Silver Sabrecubs
Why, game developers, WHY!? Why would you make “monsters” that looked like them? It broke my heart having to fight them. But oh well, I needed the experience….
No.5- Slime Knights
Clever. Just look at their shields. Details people, that’s what won me over.
No.6- Drake Slimes
Probably my favorite from the slime family of monsters. At least they were more challenging their their little blue counterparts.
T H E. F A N G S.
No.8- Heal Slimes
I love their stoopid faces…
No.9- Khalamari Kids
Yeah, not scary at all. I loved the pink version of these little guys. Those conch shell weapons though…
There you have it. Dragon Quest XI’s top 9 monsters too cute to slay. I gotta say my favorite is the Hat Hamwitches.
Which one do you think is the cutest?
