The dancing flame is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.


Dancing flames are somewhat humanoid in shape, having two arms, two legs, and a round body with a slight lump at the top to help put a head to their phantasmal face. In some titles they are depicted as having blue fire filling the insides of their yellow-red fire bodies, indicating that their centers are much hotter than the rest of their body.
