Ragin' Contagion

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Ragin' Contagion is a boss in Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies, fought inside the Quarantomb, where long ago, it was sealed away by the people of Coffinwell to keep it from infecting the residents.


The Contagion was sealed in a jar in the centre of the Quarantomb years before the events of the game. However during the earthquake at the beginning of the game, the jar was broken and the Contagion was able to cause illness in Coffinwell once again. The player manages to defeat the Contagion and return Coffinwell to normal.


The Contagion infects people whenever it is nearby. This manifests itself as a cough, a high temperature and eventuall death. There is no known cure to this, but it will quickly subside when the Contagion is sealed. In Coffinwell, only one person dies from the Contagion, although it is noted that if it had continued much longer many more would have.
