The Green Orb is a key item in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, and has appeared in other titles as a plot-driving item along with the other five remaining legendary orbs.


Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

The Orb can only be retrieved at night in Theddon, when the villagers are visible. It is held by a prisoner within a cell in the northern part of town. The prisoner is only accessible via the Ultimate Key. During the day, the cell can be entered without the key and a note can be read near a corpse which hints that the prisoner has the Orb.

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King[edit]

The Green Orb is an important item that must be found by Dominico's residence in Arcadia before the final battle with Rhapthorne.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

A ridiculously rare orb of verdant green. Alchemise it! - Dragon Quest IX game description

The Green Orb is a very exotic alchemy ingredient, used for some of the highest alchemy recipes. It is a rare drop from Psaro, Estark, and (at certain level ranges) Nokturnus Legacy Bosses. The Green Orb is also given as a reward for the completion of quest 169 Competition Commission.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

The Green Orb is owned by Queen Marina in Nautica. Veronica remembers hearing a story about a "giant pearl" that fell into the ocean, and suggests that this might be one of the Orbs. When the Luminary and his party encounter Michelle the mermaid on The Strand, they offer to help her in exchange for her allowing them to access the underwater. After they help Michelle, she gives them Lorelei's harp, which they use to reach Nautica. As thanks for helping Michelle, Queen Marina gives the Luminary the Green Orb.

In Act 2, the Green Orb is in the possession of the Spectral Sentinel Booga, who uses it to amplify his power during the boss battle against him. Humorously enough, multiple monster NPCs in Octagonia complain that Booga never uses the orb, and don't think he's good enough for it. When Booga falls, the Luminary regains the Green Orb.
