Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

By the time the Hero arrives in Jipang, the real Pimiko has been seemingly killed by the dragon Orochi, who then assumed the role of Pimiko and ordered the villagers to sacrifice young women, ostensibly to appease the Orochi.

In the Super Famicom and Game Boy Color remake, Pimiko can be found alive and well on the upper floor of Jipang's Treasures 'n' Trapdoors track that 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. As the Android/iOS version of the game does not feature TnT, Pimiko does not appear.

Dragon Quest of the Stars[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • Pimiko is based on Himiko, a Queen from Japanese history and legend.
