Dragon Quest: The complete monster appareance list.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone ! Some months ago, I made a post about a chart that I made. A list of (almost) all the monsters of the Franchise.  For the past months, me and Woodus have been working on a new section of the website, a list containing exactly that : all the monsters of all the main games, monsters games, and main spin-off games of the Dragon Quest Franchise.

Similar to the main lists already present on the website, it list new information for the monsters, notably which games introduce one monsters, the various games it appears in, and the percentage of apparition throughout the 35 games Listed. It also lists more monsters than the original list, notably those from untranslated games or updates, those monsters not having official names (3952 monsters as of when I'm writing this), so yes, most of these names are not officials. Along with a percentage of how many new monsters were added in each game. More info are present on the front page of the list !

Anyway, this list is not meant to replace the old one you all know and love, and should be used more as a trivia list if you want to flex and show how many monsters were added to the franchise in the "Torneko's Great Adventure" series.

Spoiler

0

So, if you want to check it out, you can either use this link, or from the website -> Ressources -> Monster Appearance.

For me, I will try to keep it as updated as possible. Also, I'm human so it's (fairly) possible that the list has mistakes, so all the experts are invited to tell me if they spot some, so it can be corrected. If anyone has better images for some of the monsters (because I'm mostly working from 240p screenshots for most of the untranslated ones), or any suggestion at all, please share or message me, I'll try to reply quickly.

Anyway, thank you all for reading this French made post (I hope you did read it...), and thanks to Woodus for carrying the project !! :)

It looks amazing!

I just checked a couple things: She-Slime, Red Slime, Gold Golem, and Bahlib. They all look great. Think I'll peruse the bosses next

 

-EDIT-

I'm having trouble finding Divinegon. The Divine Dragon posted isn't the one from DQ3 or DWM1. Is it listed under a different name?

Thanks for the nice feedback ^^ , the Divine Dragon from DQ3 you're searching is listed as Xenlon.

Thank you!

We should find/make a guide to the names. Dragon Warrior was short-lived, but the names are what I'm familiar with. Not sure if anyone would want to do that, because the database itself must be a TON of work.

The confusing part is that there are so many Gold Golems!

DWM1&2: The monster known as GoldGolem is actually Bahlib

DW3: Near Rimuldar is a monster called GoldMan? Its the GoldGolem from the database

DQ9: This Goldgolem image.jpeg.3c1e4e656e412ffac75a042c45035dd8.jpeg is different than the one in the database

I guess Dragon Quest has radically changed certain monsters. Could the next update include variants?

 

Sorry for being nitpicky. The actual database is amazing

I could do that but it wouldn't be really useful as there's already the name variant on the already existing monster list (sadly couldn't fuse both list).

Also this is confusing because some monsters not only have different names, but also different color palette (while being the same mob), for example, the silvapithecus which is purple-ish in most of his representation, is also called the silver demon and is blue-ish. I tried to list the different variation, but i quickly stopped because it was pretty confusing.

Maybe I'll do a Big update (adding variant or something else) one day, but for now, it's not really that needed ^^

Ah. So the wiki list and the monster appearance list complement each other. In that case, the database is awesome!

https://www.woodus.com/den/resources/monster_wiki_result.php?monsternumber=1030&pickedname=Gold Golem

https://www.woodus.com/den/resources/monster_appearances_result.php?pickedname=Gold Golem&pickedidx=19

I'm glad that people care enough to put in all this work, because I've always been to lazy.
