A shadow fiend manifestation of Pazuzu appears in Hargon's Castle, reflecting his appearance in Dragon Quest II in the same location. Though he simply dissipates without putting up much of a fight.

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

Pazuzu appears as a boss of the Demon family during the limited Dragon Quest II event. He can be faced in Chapter 4, Episode 3 of the event quests entitled The Dark Pantheon: Pazuzu, as well as in the Hall of Hargon before facing Hargon and Malroth. Some of Pazuzu's abilities include Cutter-Upper, Snooze, Kasizz, and Kaboom.

Etymology[edit]

In ancient Mesopotamia, Pazuzu is the name of a demon who was the personification of the western wind and held kingdom over wind demons. He was known for bringing famine during dry seasons and locusts during rainy seasons. Although he is considered an evil spirit, Pazuzu could also be called upon to ward off other malicious spirits, as well.
