Bone baron

From Dragon Quest Wiki
For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Bone baron (Vocation).

The Bone Baron is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV, it is an undead aristocrat that rides atop a deathly blue horse.

Characteristics[edit]

An aristocratic lancer atop a rabid steed is one way to describe a Bone Baron. Its coloring has a strong emphasis on blue in most of its appearances. The rider has the stereotypical appearance of a fop, wearing a powdered wig on top of their skulls, a black wide-brimmed hat with a white plume, a long blue coat, white trousers, and red leather boots and gloves. In their right hands, they wield a lance and in their left, a heater shield.

The rider and steed that compose the Bone Baron are both monsters but act as a single unit in battle. The rider performs most of the attacking duties whilst the steed offers it greater mobility.
