Contest #84 - Dragon Quest's Most Notable Quotables!

Recommended Posts

It's contest time again, and this time were doing something a bit different. This contest requires no art skill, no technical skills and there is no purchase required! We are on a hunt for Dragon Quest's most noteworthy quotes.

 

DQ8_22.png

 

 

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to identify some of the most interesting or funny quotes that you have come across while playing a Dragon Quest game. Truly, the series is a veritable gold mine of classic lines and witticisms.

 

Each quote that is submitted must provide a bit more info than just the words that are spoken. We also need context. As such, submitted quotes should include:

 

1) The quote itself (obviously)

2) Who said it

3) To whom it was said (if applicable)

4) Under what circumstances did the quote take place

 

 

For example, for the above pictured quote, you could submit something like the following:

 

"Me? Hearing my name is enough to make anyone wet their knickers!"

- Spoken by Yangus to King Trode as the party tries to pass across "Yangus' bridge".

 

 

And what would any contest be without some good old fashioned ground rules? So here they are!

 

Rules:

1) "But Thou Must!" will not be accepted for this contest

2) You may submit up to three quotes each

3) You can submit quotes from the English version of any Dragon Quest main-series or spin-off game

4) In the event that two or more people submit the same quote, the first person to submit it will get to claim it

5) Submit your quotes to me via Private Message

6) You have until January 20th, 2012 at 10:00 AM EST to contribute your submissions

 

 

Once all of the submissions have been gathered, the community will vote on which ones are the best. The three people who submit the top three quotes will receive a badge. Furthermore, all submitted quotes will be used by Woodus for a new "Quote of the month" feature here at the Den.

 

That's it! Start your engines and get those hilarious or interesting quotes sent in before it's too late!

Ha ha. It's as good a reason as any to replay a DQ game. And maybe you will notice some interesting text that you didn't before.

If you want to win a contest on best quotes, I suggest you pick up DW7. That game is a treasure trove. If that's not an option, then I am not really sure which of the DS trilogy games would have the best quotes. I can think of a few funny ones off the top of my head from DQIV and DQV. I don't remember any DQVI ones standing out, although there was some decent party chat if I recall.

The submissions are already rolling in. I don't know if I should post them right away or wait until the submission period has closed. Anyone have a strong opinion on that?

I guess it would be nice to know what has been submitted so far so there aren't a bunch of duplicates.
