Jade dragon

The Jade dragon is a monster that first appeared 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 the seventh game, 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.

Green dragons make their home in Yggdrasil. The species has some nasty tricks, such as emitting poisonous gas, and calling for reinforcements when things are looking bleak.

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