|Race||Human (but cursed)|
Trode is a non-playable character from Square Enix's Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, with one exception. He is the king of Trodain, and Medea's father. Both he and his daughter were cursed by Dhoulmagus as he stole the Godbird sceptre from Trodain's basement.
 Dragon Quest VIII
Trode is a good monarch, consumed with the well-being of his kingdom and especially of his daughter, but shows little concern for anything else. After being cursed with a hideous, toad-like from, Trode travels via a wagon hitched to his now turned horse daugther (a fact that he often is upset by). After the defeat of Dhoulmagus, Trode is almost heartbroken by the fact that his and Medea's curse still lingers. However, once the demon Rhapthorne is finally defeated, the two are restored to normal. In the epilogue, King Trode decides to disrupt the arranged marriage of his daugther to Prince Charmles of Argonia, and is hinted to be quite pleased with the romantic nature between Medea and the hero. In the special ending, he becomes the Hero's father-in-law after the revelation of the hero being revealed to be of noble birth.
He and Yangus have a recurring routine in which Trode will often appear out of nowhere during a scene, scaring the ex-thief witless.
Throughout the story, Trode offers wisdom and insight for the party as they travel the world, on the Battle Records menu. He also refurbishes an alchemy pot he managed to recover from Castle Trodain, as it is an important and invaluable item for crafting new items and weapons.
 Other Appearances
Trode appears at the Questor's Rest as a special guest, and will give the hero various equipment when certain inn requirements are met. His physical appearance is identical to that of his cursed self from Dragon Quest VIII.
