Aamon (Ashtaroth for his monster form in Super Light, Of the Stars, Monster Parade, Scan Battlers, Rivals, Walk, Tact, and Keshikeshi) is a major character in Dragon Quest IV, and is a powerful mage-like monster and subordinate of Psaro the Manslayer. In truth, he is a treacherous schemer who is planning to take over the world for himself once his master is gone.

Appearance[]

Aamon in his normal form resembles a Vis mager from Psaro's own army. He can also take on the form of a human priest. When faced in the Diabolic Hall, he takes on Psaro's evolving monster form, eventually reaching full form and even a color change.

Personality[]

Aamon proves to be a backstabber, using Psaro's faith in monsterkind to avoid suspicion and trigger the events that would lead to the final battle of IV. His original hope was that Psaro and the Hero's party would destroy each other in their battle, enabling him to ascend to Psaro's position as Master of Monsterkind. He puts a great deal of effort into this plan, somehow surviving his first run-in with the Hero and later perfecting the Secret of Evolution in the event that something went awry, if not to also give him the power to crush the opposition.

Biography[]

Though he appears to be a mere lackey, he actually sets in motion much of the endgame. By having Rose killed by the humans, he causes Psaro to fly into a rage and take the throne as the Master of Monsterkind. His dialogue suggests that he intends to eventually take that role as his own, and indeed, in Chapter 6 of the PlayStation, Nintendo DS, and Mobile remakes, he has used the Secret of Evolution on himself and achieved his goal. However, after reviving Rose, Psaro and the Chosen are able to defeat Aamon and restore the world to its rightful state of affairs.

Aamon is first battled at the barrier tower in Nadiria. He is flanked by three drooling ghouls.

In the remakes, Aamon resurfaces in Chapter 6 as the true final boss, having survived his run-in with the hero at Nadiria to assume control of Diabolic Hall. Much like Psaro the Manslayer, he has several forms:

Trivia[]

  • Though not mentioned in Dragon Quest V, it's implied that Nimzo is a follower of his who mastered the Secret of Evolution before being sealed away in Nadiria.
  • Aamon would later be similar to Jair from Dragon Quest X. Both pose as a trusted subordinate to their respective masters (Psaro and Valeria), both manipulate them by causing a tragedy (Killing Rose and destroying an orphanage that Valeria helps out at), and both turn into a monster to kill the Hero for interfering in their plans. (Hero and Hero)
    • The main difference is that Jair is killed before he can push Valeria over the edge while Aamon succeeds until IV's postgame in the remakes.
  • In the Mobile version of IV an interesting oversight occurs while using the Party Chat in the Diabolic Hall, in which all members of the party, including Psaro, refers to Aamon using the name, Ashtaroth, instead of the name used for Aamon in all other instances.
