A bad egg (AKA egg soldier) is a monster that appears in the Dragon Quest game series.
At first, this egg with a cracked shell does not seem threatening, attacking for miniscule damage and casting low-level magic. Let it alone a few turns, however, and it will hatch into a possibly more dangerous monster. Take these out before they hatch, or take the gamble for better EXP.
