Nelgel (冥王ネルゲル), the Lord of Hell, is the final boss of the first version of Dragon Quest X. Nelgel is also obtainable in the 3DS version of Dragon Quest Monsters 2 and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3.

Appearance and personality[edit]

Nelgel dresses in a black shirt with lime-green pants, pink boots, and a green coat with the skull of a monster serving as a cuirass that tapers into a lavender cape. Nelgel's skin is a light shade of purple and his hair is white; two large, curving horns emerge from the center of his skull and extend back to his shoulders. A large scythe is his main weapon in his humanoid form.

Once transformed, Nelgel resembles a stygian simian with a bulky upper body, bat wings, bird legs, and a thin tail. His skin is green and covered in purple markings.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

Nelgel appears as the main antagonist of Dragon Quest X's version 1 story. In the beginning of the game, he attacks and destroys the Hero's home village Tenton, even getting him killed in the process with his army of monsters. Once the hero collects at least six Key Emblems, the hero can finally confront Nelgel after a series of events involving time travel.
