From Dragon Quest Wiki

Deago is one of the four spirits associated with the Summon skill. It is the spirit that has received the most publicity of the four, appearing in VI's guidebooks being summoned by Nevan.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Deago is the only summon who is not humanoid, with it's first appearance being a green, quadrupedal monster with a skull reminiscent of the classic Green dragon with a large rhinoceros horn, a lion's puffball tail, and a mane of short spike protrusions on the back of it's neck. The design shown in the Nintendo 3DS remake of VII from 2013 is a red variant of a Weighvern with little angel wings and a long tail instead of hind legs.

Yuji Horii elaborates on Dego's backstory in a column of the V-Jump magazine guide for VI called "DQ Kids", stating that it was once a dragon that was raised from infancy by a kind girl and fought to defend her from a horde of wicked mages during an assault on her village, ascending to the status of a demigod for its noble sacrifice. Deago is far from the crude beast it appears to be, making efficient use of several support abilities in battle.


Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation[edit]

Deago is the first summon spirit that requires it's envoker to be of a certain level, which characters needing to reach level 30 before it will appear. It's HP is 300, MP is 60, attack is 10, defence is 160, and it's agility is 120, making it the second-quickest spirit. It will roast enemies with Inferno and bite into them with it's immense fangs for 125% damage, and can use Oomph, Sweet Breath, and Tongue Bashing.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

Deago retains it's level 30 requisite for being summoned, and it's HP has risen to 450. It's other stats remain the same as do it's abilities, though it is now equipped with a set of Ferocious fangs that give it a 1/6th (16.7%) chance to paralyse any enemy it bites.
