Introduced in VIII

The Argon lizard is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest (series) and was introduced in Dragon Quest VIII.


An argon lizard is a mid-sized chubby lizard monster. They have red and yellow scaly skin dragon. They have dinosaur-like arms and legs, each of them ending in hands and feet with little black claws. Their most peculiar body feature is their ear-flaps, that resemble the ones of the australian lizard Chlamydosaurus which they only open it when they feel in danger or, in argon lizards case, they attack someone.

In the world of VIII, Argon lizards are very important to the kingdom of Argonia, with the prince being required to retrieve an Argon heart in order to prove his worth. The environmentally conscientious need not fret, as the "heart" is just a glorified gizzard stone and removing one is not fatal to the animal. In addition to this, royal lizard keepers are tasked with monitoring the species to prevent any chance of it from falling into decline.


Dragon Quest VIII

The party needs to help Prince Charmles find the lizards in the Royal Hunting Grounds to the east of Argonia in order to be given the magical mirror by King Clavius. The party ends up fight three of them, with Prince Charmles discarding the Argon Heart from each of them because he thinks they are too small and thinks he needs a bigger one.
