Drohl drone

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Drohl Drone is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the first game, it is a bizarre, snail-like creature that has appeared as an enemy in the first Dragon Quest game. It made a reappearance in the main series after 30 years in Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age.

Characteristics[edit]

From the front, drohl drones appear to be awkward, bug-like heads, having high placed eyes on eyestalks and very low set mouths with stubby hands and feet placed nearby. It wouldn't be until their later appearances in the spin-off titles that their side profiles would be shown in-game, revealing most of their body to be similar to a snail shell. They are generally shades of purple. In the first two Monsters games, the drohls were classified as bugs, but later games in the series they are part of the Undead family.

Both Drohl Drones and Drohl Diabolists appear in the Rimuldar chapter. Their movement speed is slow, but they have a long-range poisonous spit attack that flies in a high arc. Unlike in the original Dragon Quest, the two have identical attacks, with the Diabolist simply having higher stats.

One quest in the chapter requires you to retrieve an item called the Heart of Darkness from the Drohl Defiler, which is a much larger Drohl Drone roughly three times the size of the player. It fights the same way as the regular Drohls, but it spits in a three-way spread.

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

Drohl drone appears as a B-rank monster of the Undead family that can be scouted normally from any banner. It can participate in the Walking Corpse and King kelp's Battle Road and the Dragon Quest I event Battle Road as a party member.
