Barbatos (Infurnus Shadow in the NES version and HellGiant in DQVII) is a boss monster from Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen and a random enemy in later games.

Appearance and Characteristics[edit]

Barbatos is one of Psaro the Manslayer's top generals and guards one of the four towers that maintain the barrier surrounding Castle Nadiria. He is a powerful spell caster, and with the exception of Aamon, possesses the most powerful magical capabilities of the four. His dialogue indicates that he is loyal to Psaro.
