The Dieamend is a recurring item in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest III. It is a special stone that will negate the effect of an instant death spell for the holder. If a character is targeted by Whack or Thwack and possesses this stone in their inventory, the stone will take the instant death spell in place of the user, and shatters afterward. In some games, it is used as a crafting material instead and does not possess its instant death-cancelling properties.
The Dieamend can be found in the following locations:
- Manoza (GBC Version)
- Manoza Cave (NES Version)
- Zoma's Citadel
- Treasures n' Trapdoors in Kol (GBC Version)
They are also sold in an item shop in the Pachisi Board in the Jipang well (GBC Version only) for 800 gold coins. They couldn't be sold in the NES Version, but can be sold in the remakes for 600 gold coins.
Monsters who might drop the item include:
