Monster Heart

From Dragon Quest Wiki

A Monster Heart is an item in Dragon Quest VII and Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart.


A Monster Heart is the crystallization of a monster's essence. It holds the characteristics of a monster. When a person takes this heart to the Alltrades Abbey, or an abbot or abbess from such a temple, the person can assume that monster's 'class' to acquire the qualities of said monster, eventually becoming it.

In Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart, two monster hearts are applied to a single monster when it goes through reform.

Acquiring Monster Hearts[edit]

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

A monster whose vocation can be undertaken has a rare chance of dropping a Monster Heart with the exception of two monsters:

The Slaughtomaton will not drop an Slaughtomaton Heart because it is only fought once in the game. The boss Golem in The Tower will not drop a Golem Heart because it is only fought once. However, there are Collum o' golem that may drop a Golem Heart.

The Lucky Panel game in the Casino will sometimes have Monster Hearts as prizes. Additionally in the Nintendo 3DS version Traveller's Tablet help to obtain Hearts at an easier rate, especially customized ones.

The Prism peacock heart can be purchased for 100,000 in the casino in The Haven.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart[edit]

Monster hearts may drop from any non-boss monster (and a few boss monsters, such as the gargoyle) shortly after acquiring the heart stealing device.

Obtainable Hearts in the Field[edit]

Certain hearts can be found in the world during the course of the games.
