Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

A Jargon named Pot Belly appears as a boss in Mt. Krakatroda, inside a building where initially lies the Krak Pot. Pot Belly tries to steal the Krak Pot for its own whimsical purposes and Rocket goes to stop him to retrieve the object to Boingburg in Slimenia. Pot Belly is immune to Elasto Blast, so the only way to defeat it is to make it damage itself with the objects it takes from the Krak Pot such as banana peels and Rockbombs, as well as throwing Chimaera wings to the monster that it also takes out of said pot.
