Pazuzu (Bazuzu in the NES version) is a boss from Dragon Quest II. He is one of Hargon's most powerful minions and one of the three bosses guarding his castle, along with Atlas and Belial.

The Pazuzu appears as a purple-colored monkey with bat wings and ears. He is actually a palette swap of the regular Batboon enemy. This monster is specially dangerous, since it can instantly kill all party members with its Thwack spell.

After its initial appearance Pazuzu became a regular enemy in other games in the series, such as Dragon Quest V and Dragon Quest X. It's also a recurring monster in many of the Dragon Quest Monsters spin-off games.
