A hunter mech is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.

Characteristics

Hunter mechs are similar to killing machines: they are quadrupedal, one-eyed robots armed with a crossbow and sword. Their color scheme is the only real change in appearance, with hunter mechs sporting a scheme of golds, grays, and purples. Their darker gray areas are more of a dull teal color in their earlier appearances.

In its original appearance the hunter mech did not have a sword and was missing a quiver to hold its crossbow bolts. This was changed in later installments.
