Japanese Name アモス
Title Village Hero
Race Human
Age Early 30's

Amos is an optional party member in Dragon Quest VI. After being bit on the backside while saving some townsfolk from monsters, he has developed a terrible case of nightly transfiguration and becomes an unwitting menace to the very town he protects.


When the party arrives in Scrimsley, the townspeople make it clear that the party should leave the town. After talking to some of the yokels, the party learns about Amos, who is the town's local hero. If the party stays at the inn, they will wake at night finding a monster attacking the town. When defeated, the monster is revealed to be Amos. In the morning, the party can go to Amos and if the party tells Amos that he is a monster, he will leave so that he will no longer harm his friends in the town. However, if the party does not tell Amos of his condition and instead acquires the seeds of reason from the nearby mountain peak and give them to Amos, then he will join the party.
