A mimic is an enemy in the Dragon Quest series. This monster can sometimes be found disguised when opening a chest, or can be found in the wild.

Characteristics

Essentially, mimics are advanced forms of canniboxes. Where the lesser form typically uses desperate attacks, the mimic will cast sudden-death spells in an effort to outright kill a party member, though it normally only has enough MP to perform the spell once. Usually lying in wait under the guise of a normal treasure chest, some installments of the series have had mimics as random encounter monsters. (With the exception of Dragon Quest VIII's 3DS remake)

Mimics may appear in the more advanced worlds, either disguised as a chest on the field or hiding amongst other chests, and possibly other mimics, in treasure rooms. A mimic can be bred by using a material pedigree and a box slime mate.

Mimics are among the ranks of the platiosi in the Plob, appearing in numerous stages as standard chests until approached. They can provide interesting roles in tank battles by either fetching ammo for the player or infiltrating the enemy tank to rattle the enemy by imitating a chest.
