The Seasaur is a rank D monster in the dragon family that can be synthesized with a Green dragon and a Headhunter, although other combinations exist. It can also be found on Palaish Isle at night.

Joker 2


The name comes from the combination of the word 'sea' (as it belongs in the sea) and the suffix for most prehistoric giant reptiles, '-saur'. The name seasaur could also be a pun on the word seesaw, a toy that requires two people to use.
