The Drohl Drone (originally droll) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the first game, it is a bizarre, snail-like creature that has yet to reappear in a main series game.

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.

Dragon Quest Builders[edit]

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 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.

Variants[edit]

Drohl diabolist[edit]

The Drohl diabolist (ドロルメイジ) is the singular variant of the drone, exchange the purple hues for green, brown, and light beige. It is a more intelligent monster, being able to cast debilitative magic.
