Kandar (カンダタ/Kandata) is a recurring boss character in Dragon Quest III. He appears 3 separate times throughout Dragon Quest III.
 Tower of Shanpane
Kandar first appears in the Tower of Shanpane west of Kanave. Kandar stole the crown from the king of Romaly and the Hero is recruited by the king to retrieve the crown. However, this is an optional sidequest, as failing to retrieve the crown does not prevent the hero from continuing in the game.
Within the tower, Kandar attempts to thwart the hero by opening a trap door which the hero's party falls through. Upon returning to the previous location, the hero finds Kandar has vanished. However, after leaping off the edge where Kandar had been standing, the hero finds him in the tower several floors below. This results in the first combat with Kandar. After the battle, the hero acquires the king of Romaly's crown.
 Cave of Baharata
The second appearance of Kandar is in the Cave of Baharata. Kandar has kidnapped a couple from the town of Baharata and is holding them for ransom within the cave. Upon freeing the imprisoned couple, the hero is confronted by Kandar and forced to fight him a second time. After his second defeat, Kandar pleads for mercy claiming that he will change his ways.
 Tantegel Castletown
Kandar's final appearance is in the castletown of Tantegel. Kandar claims to have changed his evil ways and acts as a typical NPC. He provides the hero with information about the location of the Stones of Sunlight.
