The Bamboo lance is a recurring spear in the Dragon Quest series. It is a simple weapon made from a length of bamboo cut diagonally at the end into a sharp point.


This lance is often the weakest weapon of its type and can be purchased from the weapon shops in many early-game villages. It is long enough to be wielded in both hands and has a simple cloth grip at the base. These lances are the favoured weapons of Bambooligans.
