The Monster Arena is a recurring feature in many Dragon Quest games, especially the Dragon Quest Monsters sub-series, frequently found as part of the Casino.

The DQM version allows the player to enter creatures he has raised in a fighting tournament; the Casino version calls on him to bet a number of tokens on a particular monster, then receives a multiplier (based on odds) of tokens back in winnings, which can then be forwarded to the next round.


Dragon Quest III[edit]

The first arena is found in Romaria, complimenting the Roman theme to the kingdom. Arenas are also located in Isis, Manoza, and Cantlin. As casino tokens are not in III, players bet gold on their favorite and receive multiples of the bet based on the the winner's odds. New monsters are added to the randomly selected line up at level 10, 20, 30, 40 and 70.

Dragon Quest IV & V[edit]

Zenithian trilogy arenas are found in the various casinos, where players will bet tokens to exchange for prizes instead of money. The winning bet is multiplied by the monster's odds as before, with an option to bet the winnings on the next battle.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

Slimopolis replaces the standard arena in VI, where in players can enter one of their bubbly buddies as a competitor. The fights consists of eight ranks with three battles each, for a total of twenty-four. A prize is awarded for each victory, and any completed rank may be challenged again for free (save for rank A).
