Killing machine (formerly Roboster) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.
Killing machines are four-legged robots with suction-cup-like feet, a single red eye, and are primarily blue in color. In most games they are featured in the killing machine holds a single-edged sword in its right hand and has a crossbow for a left arm with the bolts stored in a quiver worn on its back, the strap going across its upper body, though there are rare occasions where they have a normal left arm instead of a crossbow.
Appears in the 3DS version.

Interestingly, the default name of the killing machine is KB. One interpretation of this is 'Killer Bot', a likely reference to its Japanese name and present one.
As in the first game in the series, Killing Machines are made through synthesis - however, they have been downgraded to A-Rank. They still require the same fusion process, but given the amount of time needed to fuse a mechan-o'-wyrm, and the abundance of Phantom Swordsmen in the wild, fusing a hunter mech with a phantom swordsman is generally the better choice. They can also be found in the Dark World, from one of the random portals on the floor. Just as with other monsters in the Dark World, they are very difficult to scout, but with proper team preparation can be done.
Killing machines are also necessary to fuse Overkilling machines, and both are needed to fuse Sagittar.
