Larhart is a character from The Adventure of Dai. He is one of the three Dragon Masters alongside Borahorn and Galdandy, the servants of Baran. He wields the Dark Armour Spear in battle.


Larhart is a tall purple-skinned half-darkling man with blonde, spiky hair. He has long pointy ears, black eyebrows, and black markings underneath his eyes. He has a slim and muscular build. His outfit consists of a light red toga-like tunic which goes over his left shoulder, a black belt with two scaled red tassets around his waist, black leggings and fingerless gloves, and light red boots with gold cords tied around the tops. On his left shoulder, he wears a black pauldron decorated with a gold crest in the shape of a dragon's head. He also has gold cords tied around his upper arms; the one on his right arm is decorated with a crest of a dragon's head.

He has a stubborn, yet noble personality and would do anything for his master and his family.

Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai[edit]

Larhart and his fellow Dragon Masters are summoned when Baran is gathering power in order to take his son by force. The three Dragon Masters are ambushed by Popp when they are heading to Teran Castle. He watches as Popp and later Hyunckel defeat his allies, and challenges Hyunckel to a duel, as wielder of the other Dark Armour weapon.

Upon defeat, he gifts his Dark Armour Spear to Hyunckel, hoping he will make Baran return to his senses.

Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai: A Hero's Bonds[edit]

Larhart appears as a boss in the 8th story chapter, after defeating Galdandy and Borahorn. As a boss, Larhart is a ??? Family enemy weak to Shadow and Thrust attacks, while he resists Slash and Fire type attacks. He has some minor resistance to Poison and Stun, moderate resistance to Paralyse and Sleep, and strong resistance to Burn.

Larhart later appears as a playable character, obtainable through the A Loyal Land Rider's Pledge event, which ran from January 25th, 2022 to February 7th, 2022. After the event, he can be recruited from Merle's Mystic Fortunes in exchange for Seer Candles.

Unlockable after finishing the beginner difficulty stages of the A Loyal Land Rider's Pledge event, Larhart specialises in inflicting physical Thrust damage with lightning-fast spear attacks.

While his character acquisition event lasted, having the land rider as the Luminary Leader's partner would grant extra tokens and upgrade jewels.

  • Prior to the 2020 anime series, Larhart was occasionally depicted as having light blue skin instead of purple. Although the original 1991 series ended before he was introduced, Larhart appears in some merchandise with blue skin. This can be seen in his appearances in both Dragon Quest of the Stars and Dragon Quest Monsters: Super Light.
