|Dragon Quest series character|
|Old Man Nick Knack|
|Dragon Quest V|
Old Man Nick Knack died of old age waiting for certain goods to arrive at the Knick-knackatory, but became a ghost and continued to wait. After The Hero delivers the special products, he becomes the curator of the museum. He calls himself "Ghost Grandfather", because he has forgotten his real name. While this character's name is similar to that of Yuji Horii, the game creator has stated in a prerelease interview that the two are unrelated.
