Boss troll

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Boss troll is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation.

Characteristics[edit]

Great green goons that love to smack and smash anything and everything with their clobbering clubs. Goofily garbed in garish dark magenta fluffy outfits, they're not to be underestimated in battle despite their foolish fashion sense. They often make deadly Critical Hits that can down an adventurer in a single bothersome blow. Sometimes they'll attempt to Shove a single enemy right out of battle and out of action.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

A Boss troll is acting as the King of Manoza when the Hero and Party first arrives there. By using the Ra's Mirror, the Hero is able to reveal the impostor and fight the Boss troll.
