Captain catastrophe

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Captain catastrophe is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII. It is an aged swordsman of the demon world.


Blue armoured noble brutes with a knack for catching foes off guard with a variety of ferocious fighting skills and styles. During battle they stand still until ready to strike, hand gripping the hilt of their long swords, almost gallant in stature and stance. They strike with extraordinary speed, catching enemies off guard and allowing for extra damage by exploiting openings, then quickly return their blades to their scabbards. Their calm manner and knightly training allows them to Meditate, allowing them to heal themselves, even in the midst of the most manic battles. As adept warriors as they are, they're trained in countering the magic of mages, casting Fizzle to prevent magic being fired off, before slinging their burning Sizzle spell right back.
