A scissor beatle is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.


Scissor Beatles are somewhat small monsters with a pair of shearing mandibles, their namesake. Their head and body, alongside the mandibles, make up most of their form. The arms and legs of Scissor beatles are diminutive by comparison and they appear to be wearing boots on their feet.
