Contest #105-Dragon Quest's Most Notable Quotables 2!

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.




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

5) The game it comes from



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" in Dragon Quest VIII.



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



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

2) Any of the previously submitted quotes will not be accepted(I have a complete list, so I will check and let you know if it has been previously submitted)

3) You may submit up to three quotes each(if you submit one that was previously submitted, it will not count as one of your three)

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

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

6) Submit your quotes to me via Private Message

7) You have until December 15th, 2013 at 12:00 PM MST 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 to update the "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!
