Effect Transports the wearer to a previously unreachable place.

The Talaria is a pair of enchanted shoes in the Dragon Quest series. Upon being worn, they transport the wearer to a destination previously unreachable.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Found in Chapter 1 by Ragnar in the Hidden Playground. It was apparently left there by Psaro's Pawn to lure the children of Strathbaile. Upon wearing it, he was whisked to Strathbaile Tower. It's one of the few items not to remain in the inventory by Chapter 5.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

Found in Chancellor Jeeves's drawers in Gotha Castle. Upon wearing it, the hero was whisked to the Northminster area, and from there attempted to rescue his wife from Knightmare Towers.

Dragon Quest Builders[edit]

Made with a sewing station using 20 chimaera feathers, 5 pelts of powie yowie fur and 5 pelts of the finest fur, this accessory helps the player to double jump.

Description[edit]

  • These strange shoes have wings attached! (Description when selecting the Talaria in Nintendo DS Dragon Quest IV & V.)

Etymology[edit]

The Talaria are the winged sandals worn by the Greek god Hermes. Forged by Hephaestus out of pure gold, they allowed the wearer to fly faster than any bird.
