A scare root is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.


One of the weakest monsters in Dragon Quest VI, the scare root poses little threat alone. It resembles a brown root vegetable, with its roots and tubers acting as limbs. A mouth with fangs can be seen on the main body; and from the body extends a tendril with a single eye.
