The Djinn Genie is an available monster class in the game Dragon Quest VII.


The Djinn Genie is a portly parody of the common perception of genies. This monster class offers a sharp increase in strength but a slight drop in guard and appearance. At rank 8 characters will gain a weak resistance (30%) to all elements but breath attacks and strike-rock skills, and a strong (60%) resistance to all status ailments.


In order to become a Djinn, a character must first master the Malevolantern and HellGiant classes. A player can also obtain a Djinn heart from battling a the species in the Zion Cave. However, the only way a player can fight one is by allowing a BudooLamp to summon a Djinn.
