Characteristics[edit]

Brownies are yellow-skinned palette swaps of hammerhoods, bearing an orange-brown coloring and wielding a dark, grayish blue hammer. Comparatively, brownies aren't too different from hammerhoods, the two monsters essentially having the same purpose as being mostly incompetent creatures that occasionally get off a lucky shot. Brownies tend to have more HP and greater attack power since they have to fulfill this role against players that are no longer troubled by hammerhoods.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The initial debut of brownies, they are likely to be encountered around the time the player obtains the wagon and can start recruiting certain monsters. The brownie is one of these possible monsters, though it is nothing spectacular beyond having extremely high HP and attack strength growth.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The player is liable to encounter brownies while traveling between Maella Abbey and Ascantha. They are capable of psyching up to 100 in a single turn, though they usually waste this on trying to perform a desperate attack that seems to always fail. A roaming brownie that can be recruited to the player's monster team can also be found north of Peregrin Quay.

Trivia[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Brownies are a part of English and Scottish folklore. They are household spirits, being diminutive little helpers who assist in house maintenance in exchange for small offerings of food. They do not like to be seen, and usually only perform their tasks in the quiet of night.
