Float-o-copier

From Dragon Quest Wiki
(Redirected from Copycat)

The float-o-copier is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen.

Characteristics[edit]

Float-o-copiers are greenish-yellow or yellow wisps of fire with a penchant for taking the forms of party members and mimicking their attributes and abilities by using Morph. In recent localizations, they have a speech quirk where they will occasionally repeat a word two-fold.

A float-o-copier along with a ghost is responsible for making a bridge appear that connects one area of the Lumberlands to a nearby graveyard. When the party heads to the kingdom of Ingenia, they are prevented access by a closed gate. They decide to use an alternative route through the graveyard, but face the problem of a missing bridge. A ghost explains that him and his friend work together to make the bridge appear, but the float-o-copier is nowhere to be found. The ghost suspects that he's goofing off in Harba. The party arrives in Harba and eventually apprehends the float-o-copier who was using his mimicry powers for mischievous purposes. He reluctantly returns to his friend and together they open up the passage again, allowing the party to continue their quest.

The ghosts inhabiting the Dark World all take the form of Float-o-copiers.
