The wooden horseman is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.


The wooden horsemen are strange, squat little red-skinned humanoids that ride hovering toy wooden horses into battle like noble knights. They wear gleaming golden helmets which obscure their dark eyes and an entire set of great golden armor, with a perfectly well kept purple cape attached. Armed with the kind of great lances you'd expect from knights riding into battle, they use them to slam severely into adversaries, jabbing and stabbing as they do battle. The horsemen also have intensely stylish handlebar mustaches that supposedly lend them extra strength and keep them balanced on the backs of their perpetually rocking horses. When encountered on the field, the wooden horseman will charge at full speed to try and intercept an enemy, but they only move in a single direction, meaning one can simply strafe out of the way of their charge to avoid them.

Monster Meadows quotes:
I'm not cute, dang it! Fear me!

What? This is not a wooden horse! Hey, would you mind?

I'm a warrior! This is not a toy! It is a noble steed!


What's that? My horse is made of straw, you say? The very idea! It's solid wood, and I'll thank you not to suggest otherwise!

Tally-ho! You're looking well, old beans! Top-hole!

This is a fine place, and no mistake! I certainly shan't be going a-wandering ever again!
