Allblades Arena

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Allblades Arena is an arena located underneath Alltrades Abbey in the past in Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past. Its name is a pun based on Alltrades.


After journeying through the Tunnel to the Abbey and regaining their magic and abilities, the party finds themselves in an elaborate underground arena populated by both monsters and humans. It turns out that the humans who used the Soulstealer to leave Pilgrim's Perdition still have to participate in the arena in order to gain their freedom. The party encounters Zev, who has found his sister Nava, wielding the Soulstealer and is surrounded by monsters. Zev tries to reason with her into letting him return her soul using the sword, but she insists on fighting in the arena so that she can find someone strong enough to defeat her. The monsters state that she has been training hard night and day in order to defeat the warrior who stole her brother's soul.

Zev decides to enter the tournament as well, in order to steal the sword away from his sister and use it to return her soul. Eustace tries to dissuade him, but to no avail. He asks the party to enter the tournament with Zev in order for him to stand a chance, as he would get himself killed if he entered alone. They decide to team up with Zev, giving the party the required number of team members in order to participate in the arena.

They fight in five difficult battles against the other humans, who have each teamed up with monsters. The last match is against Nava, who proves to be a formidable opponent. The party is able to defeat her with the help of Zev. After the battle, she drops the Soulstealer and Zev picks it up and stabs her with it, returning her soul to her body. However, her unconscious body is left behind and the party and Zev are led back to the Abbey by the monsters after being declared the winners. Zev asks Eustace to take care of his sister before they leave.

Just as they are about to return to the Abbey, Zev pushes his way through the monsters guarding them and returns to the arena to find his sister. In the meantime, Eustace has incited a rebellion with the humans remaining in the arena and decide to fight back against the monsters. High Priestess Jacqueline meets up with the party and accompanies them to take on Cardinal Sin and retake control of the Abbey. The tournament is nothing more than a ruse in order to make the Demon King stronger, as Cardinal Sin destroys a human who won the tournament before the party. Just then the party arrives with the High Priestess in tow and defeat him after a grueling battle. After the false high priest is defeated and the monsters are expelled, some of the humans continue to remain behind at the arena.

At some point before the present, Allblades Arena was demolished, as it no longer exists.
