Pimiko (ヒミコ?) is a character from Dragon Quest III. She is the Queen and ruler of Jipang.

In the remake, Pimiko can be found alive and well on the upper floor of Jipang's pachisi track, which can only be unlocked via a wish granted by defeating Xenlon after finishing the main game. She seems to be wandering around aimlessly, and mentions that she's not quite sure what she's doing in such a place.
