A type of Durahan that wears bright red armor with a helmet that looks like a Dragon's face. Its armor becomes less Dragon-like as time goes on, and ends up being covered in Dragon scales with many jagged edges. It later appears as a non-playable enemy monster in Monster Farm Online, but looks much like a regular Durahan with a resistance to thunder and wind attacks.
Its sword is forged from the teeth of an actual Dragon (probably from a Magma Heart if the description about the "Dragon within the volcano" is to be believed).
Its name comes from Mount Vesuvius, a volcano that erupted suddenly and destroyed the ancient city of Pompeii.

|Monster Rancher 4||"Nicknamed the 'Red Dragon Knight,' it once defeated a great Dragon, was bathed in its blood, and became an immortal spirit. It seems to have lost its body, though."|
|Monster Rancher EVO||"People call it 'The Flaming Knight.' It has obtained an eternal soul by defeating the legendary Dragon living in the flaming volcano. Since it lost its body, its soul has resided within its armor."|
