Killing Machine.

Machine Family (マシン, Machine) refers to monsters in the Dragon Quest series that have a robotic or machine body, and are made of metals. It’s unknown how they can even exist due to most other modern things not existing in the Dragon Quest universe.

Usual Drop items

  • Iron nail

Strengths and Weakness


Most machines have high attack and defense, and it is not unheard of for them to possess considerable speed as well. Their biggest defense is their near immunity to status effect, and in most games, total immunity to poison.


Claws deal 110% regular damage to machines, and the claw skill Can Opener deals even heavier damage.They are weak to gale force. Additionally, machines have almost no access to magic and very poor wisdom stats.
