Popp is a main character in Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai. He is a mage and one of the Disciples of Avan.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Popp is a young man with light skin of average height and build. His black hair is worn in a messy pompadour-like hairstyle with a yellow bandana tied around his forehead. Popp's original outfit consists of a green jumpsuit with a black surcoat embroidered with the symbol of Avan in the front worn over it, as well as darker green gloves and boots with white lining.

He is arrogant and cowardly, having a tendency to get carried away when the going gets tough, but he is compassionate and cares about his friends. Popp highly regards his master Avan.


Popp was born the son of a weapons merchant in the village of Lankarks. He decided to run away from home when he became awestruck by Avan's power and decided to become his apprentice, being disowned by his family in the process. He journeys with his master to Dermline Island when the presence of Hadlar causes the peaceful monsters living there to become berserk.


Popp is a Mage, specializing in casting different offensive spells such as Frizz and has even mastered more advanced spells such as Kafrizz and Crackle. However, due to his lack of focus and discipline, these spells are sometimes shown failing, such as when Popp used his magic to freeze a wave, but was unable to maintain it. His wand, the Magical Booster, was a gift given to him by his master Avan.

Other Appearances[edit]

He appears in the collaboration events in the Japanese version of the game. The player can acquire pieces of equipment in order to dress like Popp.
