Basilisks are a type of monster in the manga Delicious in Dungeon.
Anatomy and Appearance[edit | edit source]
Basilisks appear to be chickens with a snake for a tail. However, the snake's portion is actually though to be the head, since if a Basilisk is cut in half, the part with the snake head lives longer. The dividing line between head and tail is a point of contention.
They have spurs on the back of their claws that hold a deadly venom.
Their eggs are squishy and bean-shaped like the eggs of snakes, and are laid every 2-3 days, much like chickens. The eggs appear to have no whites. They hatch from eggs looking very much like chicks with small snake tails.
Behavior and Weaknesses[edit | edit source]
They can sense heat from their snake side with what is commonly known as a pit organ.
The best way to attack them is to first intimidate them by making one's body seem larger and shouting as much as possible, then attack them from two sides at the same time, since the two brains briefly confuse the body if attacked at the same time.
Culinary Usage[edit | edit source]
Basilisk eggs are also edible, and when cooked in an omelette look more reddish-yellow than chicken eggs do.
Basilisk meat and/or eggs have been used in the following dishes:
- Roast Basilisk
- Mandrake and Basilisk Omelet
- Mandrake Kakiage & Giant Bat Tempura
- Living Armor Full Course Meal
- Golem Field Fresh Veggie Lunch
- Sky Fish and Chips
Other[edit | edit source]
The immortal residents of the Golden Castle appear to keep tame basilisks.
