Sulfur Saurian

Sulfur Saurian is a Enemy in Dragon's Dogma.


Sulfur Saurians are a subspecies of the spear wielding Saurian, but have brightly colored, stripy skin. They are almost always cloaked, even within close proximity. Their spit can cause torpor.

Like regular Saurians their defense sharply decreases once the tail is cut off, and also disables their cloaking ability. Unlike common Saurians they are also susceptible to fire, whilst being relatively resistant to ice; also unlike their lesser cousins they are immune to Torpor, and vulnerable to Poison.

When killed Sulfur Saurians may give a Saurian Scale, Fisheye Stone, or Yellow Poison Sac, in addition to a Saurian Tail if the tail was cut off.


Attack Type Description
Spear Slash Phys Slashes its spear at a target in front of it.
Tail Whip Phys Whacks targets attacking its tail. Causes knock back.
Spit Mag/Status Spits a glob of sticky goo at a target. May cause Torpor.
Jumping Attack Phys Jumps at a target out of the water and lands on them.
Jumping Spear Phys Leaps at a target and stabs them with the spear. Knocks the target away and down.
Hit and Run Bite Phys When its tail is removed, it will slither up to a target and bite them in the legs, and then run away.
Cloak Spec Sulfer Saurians are always cloaked, whether for ambush attacks or regular attacks. Cutting the tail disables this ability.
Guard Spec Holds up its spear in a defensive stance and blocks all frontal and side attacks. The Tail is not protected, and the guard may be broken by strong attacks.
Counter Attack Phys If guard is not broken when attacking, it will retaliate with a spear attack that knocks its target down.

Sulfur Saurian habitat

Sulfur Saurians have the ability to camouflage themselves, so listen closely for their growl. Saurians sustain more damage if attacked when caught off guard (or if they're asleep). Sniper skills like Comet Shot and Lyncean Sight are well suited for surprising unaware foes.

A large population is found along the side of the riverbank leading to Cursewood. There are also medium sized basks at ford of the river between Wilted Forest and Cursewood, and at the Miasmic Haunt during daytime.

Small groups, and a pair are found at Soulflayer Canyon, and at The Watergod's Altar

For full informations, refer to the Pawn Bestiary Knowledge page or the according section on the Saurian page. Enemy specific :

  • Get hit by the spit attack

In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 150 Sulfur Saurians either with their own Arisen or while travelling with others.


  • While Blinded, their camouflage is much easier to counter.
