Dracky

Jump to: navigation, search

The Dracky (originally drakee) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the first game, it is a cartoon-like bat monster named after the infamous Dracula. Having been featured in merchandise, side-stories, and spin-offs since the original game, they are among the most popular monsters worldwide and are the premiere representatives of the flying monster group.

Characteristics[edit]

Drackies are essentially bats, albeit goofy ones. They have large wings, antennae, two round feet, a long and thin tail, round eyes, and a fanged mouth that always seems to be smiling.

They do not look very smart or strong, though, much like slimes, they are capable of becoming powerful creatures. Regardless, they are typically one of the weakest enemies in the games they appear in, usually a step or two above the aforementioned slime in terms of strength. They are speedy, however, and most games grant them a higher-than-average evasion rate.

Appearances[edit]

Main series[edit]

Dragon Quest[edit]

Drackies are liable to be one of the first monsters the player encounters alongside slimes and she-slimes. A fresh, level 1 hero might want to stick with the slimier monsters since the stronger dracky can be a threat at the very beginning.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart[edit]

Drackies again reprise their role as being one of the weakest monsters fought out in the field. The first monsters the player has to fight are drackies, the group in particular harassing the caravan that would soon be under the control of Kiefer.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker[edit]

The slime takes a backseat as the player's first monster, the dracky being one of the choices alongside the platypunk and mischievous mole. They are rank F members of the Demon family and are essentially the weakest monster in that family, though they are fast and level up very quickly. Drackies can be scouted on Infant Isle, either inside the cave on the island or when traveling about outside during night.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2[edit]

If you synthesis two pairs of Drackies and make sure that one is a plus and the other is a minus, when the two synthesised drackies are synthesised together, they create a Great Dracky.

Other games[edit]

Rocket Slime[edit]

Drackies appear in Forewood Forest when night covers the area or when the player enters an underground area. They are one of the weakest monsters in the game, requiring only two hits from a normal Elasto Blast to be defeated.

Dragon Quest Heroes[edit]

Dragon Quest Builders[edit]

The monster drops dracky butter upon its defeat. Dracky butter is a crafting material, used to create hearty cream cake, ice cream and pancakes.

Variants[edit]

Drackolyte[edit]

Drackolytes are essentially Drackies that can cast simple magic, and are magenta-hued. They pose a greater danger than their swarthy brethren, as players are unlikely to have any defence against spells when first encountering them. Due to text restrictions, they were known as MagDracky in the GBC remake of Dragon Quest
