The Arisen is hit by the succubus' bite attack.

Succubus is an Enemy in Dragon's Dogma.


Succubi are a stronger Harpy like creatures, who possess bat wings. They are almost unknown in Gransys, but are found high in The Tainted Mountain Temple, and descend on some more populated places of Gransys after the defeat of the Dragon during the Post-Game. They are also found on Bitterblack Isle at the Fortress of Remembrance (Pre-Daimon)

Like harpies they have a magical song that can cause sleep - unlike the weaker versions their song may also curse or possibly blind, and their bite attack can inflict lowered strength and knock down the victim for a brief time.

When killed a Succubi may give a Sinistone, Spurious Wing, Elongated Claw, or a Moldy Apple.


Attack Type Description
Dive Phys Dives at you from the sky. Low damage.
Grab and Bite Phys/Status Will grab you and then proceed to bite you for continuous damage until your pawns save you or the succubi will let go, then causing strength lowering . Whether you're freed by it or not, when it lets you go, you will be knocked down.
Sing Status Floats around targets singing a song that will inflict Blindness or Curse on the party.
Air Blast Mag Flaps its wings hard, shooting a blast of air at a target. Unlike the Snow Harpy, this doesn't freeze you.


Many of the common tactics for Harpy species apply


  • Strong against Dark. High Maelstrom will suck them in but inflicts negligible damage.
  • Weak against Holy and Ice enchanted weapons and spells.
