I haven't been following it. It's about head cannons right? In that case, I'll give you taste of my head cannon. Edited by eal

I have many headcanons, but they could actually happen, with exclusion to the tinfoil hat Terry = Estark theory. The most implausible would would probably be that one, as much as I love the Terry = Estark theory.

Terry = Estark theory

Wow,that seems like a very interesting theory! Could you please elaborate?

 

I think it needs to be mentioned that not much time ago, I've got a dream where Terry turned into full-blown demon lord - albeit more along the lines of Nokturnus appearance-wise (I could tell details if someone wants).

Some background

 

Basically, this is what Yuji Horii, the created of Dragon Quest said during the development of Dragon Quest VI

 

「åˆæœŸè¨­å®šã§ã¯ãƒ†ãƒªãƒ¼ãŒä¸»äººå…¬ã ã£ãŸãŒæ„Ÿæƒ…移入ã—ã«ãã„ã¨æ€ã„ã‚„ã‚ãŸã€ï¼ˆå €äº•æ°ï¼‰ã€

「テリーã¿ãŸã„ãªä¸»äººå…¬ã‚’最åˆã«æã„ãŸã€ï¼ˆé³¥å±±æ°ï¼‰ã€

「魔æ—ãŒäººæ°—ãªã®ã§ï¼–ã®ä¸»äººå…¬ã¯ãã‚ãã‚魔王ã«ã—よã†ã‹ã¨æ€ã£ã¦ã‚‹ã€ï¼ˆå €äº•æ°ï¼‰ã€

 

           

"Terry was the main character in the initial setting but it is hard to empathize emotion". (Mr. Horii)"

 

"I drew Terry to be a hero in the first." (Mr. Toriyama)â€

 

       

And here is a pic for reference

Now why is this important, because before Dragon Quest VI was released, Horii said this:

 

"Because the demons are popular, I think that the hero of VI will be made to be a demon soon" (Horii) "

 

So, before the game was developed, there was a belief that Terry would become a demon king.

 

Now for the main theory:

 

Basically Terry always wanted to be the best, even when he joined the gang and fought for the sake of the world, he still had a liking to get stronger. In the alternate end cutscene, you see Terry visiting Nokturnus. Nokturnus in that fight gave Terry his wish, to be the strongest, but at a price. He was the first to be granted evolution, what I believe is that Evolution is actually the essence of Nokturnus manifesting inside the user and giving them his infinite power. When the user is killed, the essence will be transferred to the other user. This is referenced in Dragon Quest IV, where a person in The Azimuth says something along the lines as "Estark's soul has now been reincarnated into Psaro."

 

So basically, Terry fought Nokturnus, was rewarded ultimate power by being possessed by Nokturnus which triggered evolution, morphing him into the demon of hell we know as Estark. When Estark was killed, Nokturnus transferred himself into Psaro, and then Aamon, after Aamon was killed Nokturnus would be left without a host for a while and the world stayed at relative piece until Nimzo discovered the teachings of evolution and evolved, which then transferred to Estark again (Don't ask how he somehow survived).

I had another head theory, which is more plausible, that Dragon Quest monsters was just the Dream World version of Felonia, with Terry's quests in it just being his dreams of trying to save his sister from her bondage by the king.

The King cosplays as an old man who wants to be a maid.

King interested in bondage confirmed!

Know your joking, but from how he was described, I would not be surprised if he liked that type of stuff.

Rude. King of Drag is not about dressing up or anything kinky.
