The Drag-goof (formerly MadDragon / Mad Dragon due to display constraints) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest V, it is deranged-looking dragon.


The Drag-goof is awkward-looking, especially its head, an over-sized affair backed with four large horns and a face which consists of four large whiskers, widely spaced eyes looking off in opposite directions, and an open-mouthed grin that shows off its gums and gaped teeth. It has a somewhat prominent belly, small wings and forelimbs, and a thick, spiked tail. It is primarily blue in color with a yellow-white underbelly.

Drag-goofs can first be encountered shortly after obtaining the ship, namely in the regions surrounding the Knot Welcome Inn. It is possible to recruit drag-goofs, the monsters having decent stats and access to breath attacks that can encumber and inflict damage.

Dragon Quest Monsters[edit]

Drag-goofs can be created by breeding any Dragon-family monster with a GulpBeast. Their default skills are Massacre, LureDance, and EvilSlash. They are known as Mad Dragons in this game, as well as in the sequel.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2[edit]

In addition to breeding a GulpBeast with a dragon, you can now also create a drag-goof by breeding a Gasgon with any beast monster. They have the same set of skills from the first game. Its blurb in the Library states that "Its power is best among dragons."

The Drag-Goon (Boss Garm in fan-translations) is a somewhat stronger version of the Drag-goof, swapping blue for red. Typically appearing alongside strong monsters such as Hoodlums, Drag-Goons will attempt to dazzle the party by blowing up a cloud of sand. This, combined with their habit of fleeing, makes them an aggravating monster to deal with.
