The Poker is a recurring Spear weapon in the Dragon Quest series. It is notable for being an unblockable weapon, making it highly valuable and strong. It can be upgraded all the way up to the Red-hot poker. However, due to removal of the Red-hot poker in Dragon Quest XI, the Straight-pot poker ends up being the ultimate spear in said game.
