Firebird

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Not to be confused with Phoenix, the palette swap of the Hades' Condor

The firebird is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest V.

It is a fire-breathing bird of prey.

Characteristics[edit]

The firebird is a large Bird whose plumage is various shades of red, orange, and yellow. Most of its body is orange with a long red tail, a red head and neck, and golden feathers on its head and neck, as well as gold talons. In battle, it breathes out fiery breath of varying intensity to cook foes alive. Although the firebird made its debut in V, it would not make a return to the main series until X two decades later. It has made regular appearances in the Monsters of games, as well as various other spinoffs along with its icy counterpart. In some games, it has been a member of the beast family while in other as a member of the nature family.

Etymology[edit]

In the original Japanese games, the Firebird is known as (ひくいどり, hi kui dori), which is also the name of a large flightless bird from Australia and Papua New Guinea in the real world believed to be named due to the red wattle on its neck. Its original English translation, Phoenix, is a sacred immortal bird associated with Greek mythology that cyclically regenerates itself or is born again after bursting into flames. Firebirds are mythological creatures that are found in various cultures across the world.
