The Monster Master (also known as Monster Masher) is a vocation in Dragon Quest VI and Dragon Quest VII. In the original version of VI, having a master in the party increases the chances that a monster will join you upon its defeat, however this function was dropped in the Nintendo DS remake in lieu of Slime Buddies. Monster Master is one of the prerequisites for the Ranger vocation (along with Merchant and Thief).

In VII, the vocation will instead give players a greater chance to send defeated monsters off to the Haven, a wildlife preserve of sorts where monsters can interact with the party as NPCs. To become a Masher, characters need to master the Thief and Shepherd vocations..
