The Automaton is a monster vocation in the game Dragon Quest VII


The automaton is an android like creature, similar to the ones attacking Faraday. The vocation offers a increase to strength and resilience, and slight to sharp drops in all other categories.

Mastering the vocation grants a weak resistance to frizz, sizz, bang, woosh, and crack, as well as a strong resistance to all status ailments.


In order to become an automaton, a character must first master both the serial quiller and golem vocations. A heart may also be obtained in battle by fighting stainless scrappers in the Palace of the Demon King, in the past.
