For the monster vocation in Dragon Quest VII, see Delusionist (Vocation).

The Delusionist is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII. It is a rotund monstrous parody of a stage magician.


Odd, almost alien, three fingered monsters that float above the earth, confusing opponents with illusions and the weird weaving of the strange stalks on the ends of their horrendously shaped heads. Like crazed conjurers, the summon swords of solid light to slice at adventurers with, before blinding them with a bright light that can make any physical attack miss. Along with these infuriating flashes, they can fire off powerful Frizzle spells at a single target.

3DS version changes

The delusionist only has a chance of dropping its heart in the Nintendo 3DS version if it appears as the boss of a custom-made Traveller's Tablet. A delusionist also appears as the boss of the Gruesome Garrison DLC Tablet and it drops its heart as a reward.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D[edit]

Making their first appearance outside of the game they originated, the delusionist appears as an A-rank monster of the Demon family. It can be synthesized from a special combination of a Notso macho and a Phantom swordsman.
