Defeating the Orochi
Himiko is really the Orochi in disguise. By entering the Cave Northeast of Zipangu and fighting the Orochio, the heroes cause it to run away wounded into a nearby travel gate. Taking the travel gate, the heroes find themselves in Himiko's chamber in Zipangu. After fighting the Orochi a second time in the chamber, he leaves behind the purple orb.
- A ridiculously rare orb of deep purple. Alchemise it! - Dragon Quest IX game description
The purple orb reappears in Dragon Quest IX as a very exotic alchemy ingredient, used for some of the highest alchemy recipes. It is a rare drop from Dhoulmagus, Rhapthorne, and (at certain level ranges) Nokturnus legacy bosses.
