From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Champion (ゴッドハンド, Godhand) is one of the three advanced classes in Dragon Quest VII.


The power of the heavens flows through the Champion, infusing their very being with divine energies. In order to become a Champion, one must master the Gladiator and Paladin. Champions enjoy the highest strength boost of any vocation, and do not suffer the wisdom reduction that plagued gladiators. This is not to imply that champions can only focus on offense--the class enjoys a surprisingly varied amount of support abilities.

  • For the 3DS illustration, the Champion was based directly on the Deva Kings of myth.
  • Many of the PSX accolades come from the hierarchy of angels in Christian tradition.
  • Thrones are the givers of God's justice.
  • Cherub (plural Cherubim) are a rank of angels second highest in the hierarchy. They are guardians sent by God to protect.
  • Seraph (plural Seraphim) are the highest rank of angels. They sing praises to God.
