Dragon Quest XI[edit]

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker[edit]

Mechan-o'-wyrms appear as rank A members of the Dragon family. It is possible to obtain one from an NPC in the Domus Isle sewers prior to the game's final battle, though the player must choose between the mechan-o'-wyrm or a heligator. Mechan-o'-wyrms can be synthesized using a metal dragon and great dragon.

Etymology[edit]

The mechan-o'-wyrm's name possibly serves two meanings: a cliché naming convention towards devices stating what the monster is while trying to sound technical, and a pun on the phrase "can of worms". A wyrm is a type of dragon, with the name telling of its mechanical nature, while a can of worms refers to something that can cause problems, something that a mechan-o'-wyrm is more than capable of doing.
