A moai minstrel is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.


Similar to the other Moai monsters, they appear to be large stone heads like their Easter island real-life counterparts. The main difference between the Moai Minstrels and the other members of its monster gender is that they appear to have a hairy texture on its otherwise stony surface. It also bears a massive red nose akin to a clown along with makeup and a comical pink wig.

Description: Those facing these po-faced Pierrots should overcome the urge to laugh - a clout with Kamikazee just isn't funny.

Their face paint is put on by boa bishops, who say it brings victory. Their real faces are rather handsome.

The exaggerated lip makeup suggests the minstrel part of the name may be a reference to minstrel shows.
