Your favorite too-obvious-to-pass-up monster-names.

Recommended Posts

I don't recall any particularly clever ones I've had at the moment but if I get a monster that had a Name of their own else where in the series, I tend to name them after that.


Like naming Healers "Healie", SaberCars "Borongo", Battlerex "Wrex", etc.



And somewhat related I name my kids in DQV, "Cobi" and "Tara" after the DWM2 heroes. Honestly, thats who they should have made Cobi and Tara be.... missed opportunity to tie in another game...

I'm one of those people that tend to be lazy with names. Like Shelly for shellslime. Sometimes i throw in a bit of twist, like Poto for Jargon, and Sabin for sabercat.


Oh and for rhapthorne, Slim Shady is probably what I would go with. :P


Edit: came up with some more silly names, like Skelly for female skelegon, DullHan for dullahan :P, and Ringo for beetleboy. Lizzie was the name of my hacksaurus in DQVI, so I used that as well, or sometimes Rex.

Recently I got a Zenith Dragon, and I made a joke with my friend that I would name it after him. And honestly, it kinda stuck. So my Zenith Dragon is now officially named after my good friend, Ross Yankowitz, shortened to just plain ol' Ross

Egdracil => Turtera

Magic God against Zemerugiasu => Epicon


He looks like a big god and reminds me of Immediate. And he is baddass as hell

I've never actually nicknamed any of my non-slime monsters. However, my favourite potential nicknames, if I ever got around to doing that, would be:

Marquis de Leon: Galeon

Demon Wargod Zemerugiasu/Gran Estark/Nokturnus/what have you: Jesus-Punch (shortened to JesPunch due to the 8-character limit) (Nostalgia Critic reference for the win)

Mechan-o'-wyrm: Golgon (they're both golden dragons, so that's fitting)

Orochi: Ghidorah

Sagittar: PegSaber (a shortening of Pegasus Saber from Da Garn)

I like to keep the names of the most memorable ingredient that made a monster (these are Joker 1 names, since I didn't get to Joker 2's post game, because I played professional and my ROM had a bug):


Beshemoth Slime = Besos (Spanish for Kisses). Later went on to become a Gem Slime, but kept the Besos name.

Jum = Jimbo. Later became a Rhaptorne.

Grim Rider = Bones. Later became a Dullahan.

Moosifer = Moose. Later went on to become an Orgodemir.


Incarnii is always named after my cat.
