Jade dragon

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Jade dragon is a monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest IV.

The Japanese name for the monster is the same as that used for the original Green dragon, and the localizations followed suit until the 3DS remake of VII, which gave the wyrm its current moniker.


Great green bipedal dragons with large bellies that tower over any potential attackers, their maws filled with furious teeth ready to rip into foes. They also attack by using their powerful tails to swipe at unfortunate victims. Their green scales work as strong armour against slashes and bashes, keeping them safe before they unleash either a chilly blast of breath that can freeze an entire party or a noxious emission to Poison them. Their blank, pupilless, eyes hide a wicked intelligence that they employ to call in Healslimes to come to their aid in drawn out battles.

Description These venom-vomiting dragons see humans as mere worms, and will absentmindedly squish them as soon as they see them.

Even the purest of plants are processed into powerful poisons into their terrifically toxic tummies.
