Healie is a minor character in Dragon Quest IV, an optional character in Dragon Quest VI and has a cameo in Dragon Quest VIII. He is a healslime, a variant on the slime monster able to cast healing spells, but unlike most healslimes, he is friendly rather than hostile.


Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Ragnar first encounters him in his chapter within the Auld Well, at which point he joins the party. Healie uses his knowledge of local geography to help Ragnar in his quest to locate the missing children of Burland. He proves to be an extremely useful ally in battle, as Ragnar is incapable of using any spells, so the only way he can heal himself without Healie's help is with items such as herbs. Healie can also contribute to combat, though the damage he is capable of dealing is fairly unimpressive. As an AI-controlled character, his behavior is also somewhat random and unreliable.

Towards the end of Chapter 1, he states that he has resolved to become a human. He apparently continues to travel with Ragnar because they can be found together in Chapter 5, shortly before the fight with Balzack. Healie has succeeded in becoming a human through unknown means and has taken on the sprite of a bard. This, however, is the last he is seen in the game; after Ragnar joins the Hero's party, it seems Healie continues his travels alone.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

In the SNES version of VI, Healie can be randomly recruited when a healslime is defeated in battle and one of the party members is a rank 2 Monster Master.

In the Nintendo DS remake of VI, Healie can be recruited in Clearvale after obtaining the flying bed.

In the ending credits, if Healie is interacted with in Somnia, he mentions his desire of becoming a human, foreshadowing his role in Dragon Quest IV.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

Healie appears as an infamous monster in VIII, and can be found near the coast of Port Prospect.

Selected Quotes[edit]

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

"I met another human. He was wearing armour like you. I wanted to goo with him, but he refoozed. Maybe he didn't think a slime was goo enough for him? I was very hurt... (slurp)"

  • Using Party Chat with Healie while in Auld Well.

"Remember, you can't goo easy on other healslimes, even if they do remind you of your pal Healie"

  • Using Party Chat with Healie when wandering around Loch Tur.

"That's him! That's the human who refoozed to take me with him! What a horrible man! (slurp) But I suppooze he did me a favour. If I had gone with him, I'd never have met you!"

  • Using Party Chat with Healie after speaking to a soldier in Loch Tur who turned down his offer to help him out.
