Tortoceratops is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics[]

The tortoceratops and its palette swaps are stout looking monsters that take inspiration from the Nodosauridae family of Ankylosaurian dinosaurs. They lack the distinctive tail club to mark them as true ankylosaurids, but they do sport crested frills and nose horns reminiscent of Ceratopsians. The family also bears a striking resemblance to the Toho studios monster Anguirus, especially considering the tortoceratops' similar brown and gray hues. The tortoceratops can also fly by retracting its limbs and expelling fire from the sockets, allowing it to spin and ram into enemies at high speeds like Gamera, as shown in the video below.

Trivia[]

  • The Tortoceratops species were originally going to debut in Dragon Quest II, but they debuted in Dragon Quest V.
  • While some consider the Tortoceratops species to be part of the Dragon family in earlier titles, they've been confirmed to be part of the Beast family in Dragon Quest X, though later Monster series titles still classify them as Dragons.

Etymology[]

Being dinosauroid with a hefty shell-like frame, this monster takes its name from combining tortoise with Triceratops, the latter being a genus of dinosaurs with a plated skull from which three horns emerge.
