Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

The Rainbow Drop is given to the player after bringing the Staff of Rain, Sunstone and the Sacred amulet to the Sanctum, creating an ephemeral bridge to Zoma's Citadel.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

The technicolor dollop makes its first appearance outside of the original trilogy in the Nintendo 3DS remake of the seventh game. It is a reward for defeating a Traveller's Tablet boss and will replicate the effect of the Lifeboat skill when used in battle. The Rainbow Drop can be used inexhaustibly and effectively frees the skill from being tied to the Pirate vocation.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

The Rainbow Drop returns once again in the 3DS and Nintendo Switch versions of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. It is an accessory that provides a chance for spells and abilities to consume no MP. This effect has a base chance of 25% and can be raised even higher with use of the Fun-Size Forge, allowing for a maximum chance of 40%. It also boosts magical might by +16, magical mending by +17, and charm by +29, which can also be boosted with the forge, allowing for maximum boosts of +22, +23, and +35 respectively. It can be equipped by all party members.

The rainbow drop is only available after completing the main story, as it is the reward for defeating Lord Dragon in the Hall of Remembrance in the Echo Chamber.
