The Devil's tail is a recurring accessory in the Dragon Quest series. In most of its appearances, it is a cursed item.


Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line

Like the Death necklace, the Devil's tail will curse the person who tries to equip it. It sells for 1,125 Gold Coins, so the player should sell as soon as they can. It is dropped from Hawk men and Grimlins.

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

The Devil's tail increases Agility by 10, but makes the wearer more susceptible to magic attacks. It can be bought for 200 Gold Coins in the Dragovian Sanctuary and sold for 100.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
