The Gringham whip, also known as the ultimate whip, is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest franchise. It is usually one of the strongest, if not the strongest, whip in the game and often has the ability to attack all enemies instead of a single group.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest III[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +105, and hits an entire group. It can be wielded by the Hero, Warriors, Thieves, Gadabouts, and Sages. One can be found at the Dragon Queen's Pachisi Track, and the other is found in the Secret Dungeon. It is not available in the NES version. In the mobile version, it is the final prize obtained from the mini medal collector in Aliahan after turning in 100 medals.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +125, and hits an entire group. It can only be wielded by Alena, Maya, and Meena. It can be obtained by collecting 60 mini medals and is only available in the PS1 and DS versions.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +100. It can be purchased as a casino prize for 250,000 tokens.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +145 and an appearance bonus of +57. It is the strongest weapon in the game and can be found in the Underwater Palace.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The ultimate whip has an attack bonus of +145 and an appearance bonus of +57. It is the strongest weapon in the game and can be obtained from the Medal King for 105 medals. It can be equipped by the Hero, Maribel, Melvin, and Aira.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +127, and is easily Jessica's most powerful weapon. Unlike other whips, it can attack all enemies instead of a single group. It can be purchased as a casino prize for 200,000 tokens.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

The Gringham whip is rarely obtained from S rank treasure chests in high-level Grottoes. It grants an attack bonus of 118, and is unique among whips (besides its upgrades) in that its basic attack will hit all enemies instead of a single group. However, Whip skills will retain their group restrictions. It can be upgraded into the Mega Gringham Whip and further into the Giga Gringham Whip, if not the Über Gringham Whip.

Gringham Whips cannot be bought in stores, and therefore have no buying price. They can, however, be sold for 20,000 coins each, but it is not recommended to do so, as the odds of obtaining another one are slim, as warned by shopkeepers when selling rare items.
