DQVIII - Bullfinch
Japanese name あばれうしどり
Rōmaji Abareushidori
Family Bird
Introduced in IV

A Bullfinch (formerly Brahmird, BullBird and Bull Bird) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.


Bullfinches are tough enemies that can consistently hit 10s and higher. When encountering a group, some may be found asleep and will be awoken if attacked.

Tips for Combat:

- Target the ones that are already awake first since those asleep will not do anything during their turn.

- Be extremely cautious when using a boomerang or Jessica's whip as that will sure wake all of them up.

- Treat with Medium Priority based on whether they are awake or asleep.
