The Carnivine (originally Carnivore Plant; Snapper in the GBC translations) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV, it is a monstrous plant with three flowers that act as mouths.


It could be said that the body of a carnivine is arranged in three layers, the bottom composed of its leg-like roots, the middle being made of a circle of large, green leaves, and the top holding its three white, fanged flowers, connected to the leafy section by flexible stems.

The current name is possibly a spin on the original, Carnivore Plant, combining carnivore, a being that eats meat, with vine, a tendril-like component found on some plants.
