The Zenith Dragon (also known as the Master Dragon) is a character in Dragon Quest IV, Dragon Quest V, and Dragon Quest VI. He is an enormous, platinum colored dragon and the ruler of Zenithia. The Zenith Dragon later appeared in Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2.
When the Hero meets the Zenith Dragon in Zenithia, he informs him of the situation, as Psaro the Manslayer is rapidly amassing power in Nadiria. He imbues the Zenithia Sword with the power necessary to defeat Psaro and shows the party the way into the underworld. In ages past he was the one to vanquish Estark when the fiendlord made his attempt to conquer the world, sealing the monster away in the area that would one day become Mamon Mine. In the intervening years he has grown weaker with age, and can not aid in the battle against Psaro.
The Zenith dragon is first met in Diggery Pokery as Dr. Agon, a man claiming to be Zenithian. After he is freed from a perpetually looping mine cart ride, something he's been stuck in for the last 20 years, he joins the party but does not participate in combat.
Eventually the party finds their way to Zenithia, which has fallen into a lake, and Dr. Agon uses his meditation powers to learn that the Golden Orb, one of the orbs that keeps Zenithia afloat, has been destroyed (in the beginning of the game, the hero acquired the orb, and it is later destroyed by Ladja). Dr. Agon stays in the castle while the party finds a replacement gold orb. The hero ends up having to travel back in time to when he had the orb before it was destroyed, and he switches the gold orb held by his past self with a fake one. When the party returns, Zenithia is raised and Dr. Agon checks on his friends.
Later, when the party finds the Dragon Orb, they return to Zenithia to find the doctor being questioned by real Zenithians, because they say there aren't any by the name of "Dr. Agon." He will then ask for the Dragon Orb, and when you give it to him, he transforms into his true form, the Zenith Dragon. He will then carry the party to Crocodilopolis, at the very top of a mountain. He can also be used to travel over any terrain at high speeds, but can only drop off the part on flat terrain. After you defeat Grandmaster Nimzo, he will take the party to many towns and let the Hero talk to the people, eventually returning everyone to Gotha.
Like the previous game, the Zenith Dragon talks extremely formal and with dignity, however it is later revealed in DQV that it's an act and he actually hates talking like that. In reality, he talks crazy and eccentric. This was probably put in to surprise many players.
