Spiked hare (formerly Almiraj) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.



Spiked Hares have the ability to Psyche Up and tend to get to 20 before they attack. Their base damage is low but at 20 tension, they can deal about 30-35 damage.

Tips to Combat:

- Prioritize the Spiked Hares with higher tension.

- If you do NOT have the initiative and a Spiked Hare has 20 tension. Order your whole party to defend unless you're sure you can tank the attack.

- Treat with Medium Priority depending on tension levels.
