Fygg (女神の果実 Megami no Kajitsu?, literally meaning; "Fruit of the Goddess") is a shiny golden fruit that plays a major role in the Dragon Quest IX series. This fruit that comes from the Yggdrasil Tree upon receiving some amount of Benevolessence. Fyggs have the power to make the dreams of those who eat them come true, but the wish is rarely granted in the way the wisher has in mind. There are seven fyggs that the player must collect but after the final boss an eighth fygg falls from the sky, to be collected by Llevithan.

The Fygg is probably based on the Apples of Eden. The Apples of Eden are forbidden fruits which according to the legend if you eat one of them they will bring forth an ill fate when consumed. It also can be based on the tale about the first two living beings on earth, Adam and Eve who ate the fruit from a tree that God forbid them to take which they both were given divine judgement by God.
