Magically animated hands, made out of blood, that first appeared in the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) video game Dragon Warrior II. Very rarely, after slaying one of these crimson foes, an adventure may find a copper sword in the monster's bloody remains. Graboopis are more dangerous than their weaker relatives, the Goopis.

These semisolid creatures attack by bunching themselves into a fist and "punching' their opponent(s). Graboopis can summon another of their kind, assuming there is one nearby (which unfortunately for adventurers, is often the case), with a quick hand signal. A single Graboopi can gather a small army of its slimy brethren in this manner, overwhelming their foes with sheer numbers. Because of its magical nature, the blood that composes a Graboopi's "body" never coagulates or dries out; it is perpetually fresh.

Nearby Graboopis may not answer another's hand signal for any number of reasons, leaving the caller to fend for itself. These gooey monsters aren't known for their courage and will frequently flee from battle, particularly if the odds are not in their favor. Graboopis always smell like fresh blood; this scent can attract the unwanted attention of many different species of carnivorous monsters.
