Pimiko

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Pimiko is the Queen and ruler of Jipang in Dragon Quest III. The character of Pimiko is based on the real-life Himiko from Japanese history and legend.

By the time the hero arrives in Jipang, the real Pimiko has been killed by the Orochi, who, in disguise, assumes the role of Pimiko and orders the villagers to sacrifice young women to appease the Orochi.

In the remakes, Pimiko can be found alive and well on the upper floor of Jipang's pachisi track, which can only be unlocked via a wish granted by defeating Xenlon after finishing the main game. She seems to be wandering around aimlessly, and mentions that she's not quite sure what she's doing in such a place.

Trivia[edit]

Despite the player being unable to do so, the old man in Greenlad can take the form of Pimiko with the usage of the Staff of Change.
