Green dragon

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Green dragon is a rarely appearing monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest. They are powerful, scaly beasts of legendary status.

In Japanese, they are simply known as "Dragon", and one plays an important role in the story of the first game as a boss fight guarding the princess, so this monster could be said to be the namesake of the series.

Characteristics[edit]

In appearance, green dragons are quadrupedal and wingless, their underbellies an orange-brown shade. Like dragons in most other tales, green dragons are powerful, boasting impressive stamina, strength, and resilience, as well as the ability to breath fire.

While this monster can be found in the overworld, a specific one is guarding Princess Gwaelin in the Quagmire Cave, and must be fought to rescue her. This green dragon was no different from it's brethren originally, but was given a full boss promotion in the remakes.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart[edit]

The Dragon is a two-star member of the Beast family with a weight of 3. It naturally learns Fire Breath, Blaze and Hold Breath. Its in-game description reads "It defends itself with enchanted scales."

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker[edit]

Only one wild Green dragon can be encountered in the game, guarding a treasure room within Palaish Isle's shrine. It is important to save at a scout post beforehand if attempting to scout this green dragon, seeing as how it does not respawn once defeated.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2[edit]

The Green dragon is a Rank D monster in this game. One can be scouted or synthesized by mixing a Boreal serpent and a Skipper.
