The Djinn Genie is an advanced monster vocation in the game Dragon Quest VII.


The Djinn Genie is a portly parody of the common perception of genies. This monster vocation offers a sharp increase in Strength, but a slight drop in Resilience and Style. At rank 8, characters will gain a weak resistance to all elements except breath attacks and strike-rock skills, and a strong resistance to all status ailments.


In order to become a Djinn genie, a character must first master the Malevolantern and Barbatos vocations. A player can also obtain a Djinn genie heart from battling them in the Cave to Another World. However, the only way a player can fight one is by allowing a Vigilantern to summon a Djinn genie. However, the drop rate is still astronomically low, as the genies only have a 11024 chance of dropping one.

  • In the Nintendo 3DS version, there are more options for obtaining a Djinn genie heart. Players are able to create a custom Traveller's Tablet with Djinn genies as one of the monsters that can be encountered and a heart can be received as a reward by making a Djinn genie the boss of the tablet. Lover lamps are also capable of summoning Djinn genies to battle.
