A war gryphon is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics

The war gryphon is a gryphon monster and as the great winged war gryphon is built for battle and rides the tides of war, following great armies of manic monsters across the land. With brown feathered fur and a pure white mane, these beasts look far fairer than they actually are. They use the mighty Swoosh spell to slice through adventuring parties and Bazoom to blast foes flying out of battle, although they quickly run out of magic points and have to resort to raking at foes with ripping claws.
