A man o' war is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics[]

The man o' war may look like a healslime, but is a potentially deadly jellyfish in a dull, greyish colour with its tentacles a dark blue-green shade. This being the case, its attacks can paralyse its foes, leaving them powerless against more aggressive foes in mobs. Some species can call for help, multiplying the threat they pose. Although they look like they're part of the Slime family, they're mostly classified as part of the Aquatic or Nature families.
