From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Fightgeist is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in the original Dragon Quest.


Fightgeists are purple poltergeists with green witch hats, the Fightgeist is a significant improvement over the original bed-sheet baddie. The phantasms have gained the ability to cast simple offensive spells against their enemies compared to the orange spirits. Depending on the game, the coloration of the fightgeist alternates between a deep shade of purple or a lighter lavender.

  • "Geist" is the German word for ghost.
  • Metoro (メトロ) is the Japanese pronunciation of "metro", a loanword derived from the English used to refer to underground railways, which appears to be a vague reference to the fact that the metro-ghost is only found underground (i.e. in a cave and a tomb) in its original appearance. "Metro" is also an abbreviation of "metropolitan", which means urbane or sophisticated (in the manner of city-dwellers), which is alluded to by the Heroes II field notes.
