The Xenlon rod is a recurring staff in the Dragon Quest series. It is a powerful staff modeled after the legendary Xenlon herself.


The Xenlon rod is a long quarterstaff made of dark red wood inscribed with various runes featuring the design of a green Chinese dragon at the top, with its body and tail entwined with the staff. In X, the staff is now gold and black and the dragon has indigo and blue scales instead.
