This article is about the recurring monster. For the Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past deity, see Fire Spirit.

The firespirit is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen.


Firespirits, as suggested by their name, are spirits composed of fire. Lacking a concrete physical form, they can shrug off attacks surprisingly well.
