Dragon Quest Wiki

Batsureg is a nomad-styled town in Dragon Quest IX. It is located in Iluugazar Plains. There is a lot of minutiae that show cultural difference. For example, the church is located in a cave because of the different religions, and the weapon and armour shop sells mostly equipment for Gladiator and Ranger vocations, mainly because of the town's nomadic living style.


When the Hero enters this town of the great plains, he/she is thought to be here to see Sarantsatsral. When they do visit Sarantsatsral, the Hero explains of their quest of finding the Fyggs, though Sarantsatsral says that they do not know of such a fruit. Just then, a man comes in saying the beast threatening the village is back. Sarantsatsral says that she will help you on your quest if you stop the beast, which is a Badboon. Said beast doesn't attack, but runs for Batkhan's tent, though the Hero stops him by intimidation, causing the Badboon to run off. Batkhann says he must teach his son, Batzorig, to fight and kill the beast if he is to become the new chief of the village.

Batkhann sends him to the Hunter's Yurts to train, though Batzorig refuses to learn by the time the Hero gets there, going off to a cave in the Yurts. When the Hero sees him again, he is talking to the Badboon, telling him not to visit him anymore since his father would only put more pressure on him. Batzorig sees the Hero in surprise, and tells them to not mention this to anyone. He says he befriended this beast and his name is Khoonbish. Batzorig then reveals that Sarantsatsral is a monster in disguise, and he needs the Bodura Grass to reveal her true form. His mother then appears as a spirit and agrees to help the Hero and her son get the grass.

The Hero later ventures to Mt. Ulzuunn to get to a place called Gerzuun, where they can get the Bodura Grass needed to unmask Sarantsatsral. Everyone in the depths of Gerzuun are ghosts, not knowing they are dead, but the Hero manages to collect the Bodura grass. When they get back to the village, the people are gathered around, watching Batzorig "slay" Khoonbish to appease his father's impatience. When he is about to deal the final blow however, he and Knoonbish head straight for Sarantsatsral, with the Badboon attacking her to stop her from fleeing so Barzorig can throw the crushed Bodura Grass on Sarantsatsral, forcing her to reveal her true colors of wanting to take over the Illugazar Plains and transforms into Larstastnaras, a hideous and fat monster. Batzorig and Khoonbish attack, but she fends them off, injuring them badly and engages the Hero in battle though she is defeated. After her defeat, she is revealed to be a Slugger that ate a Fygg so she could be a "somebody", though the fruit turned her into this form and apologizes for plotting against the town. Batzorig accepts her apology and allows Khoonbish to befriend the Slugger, so she can have a companion to walk the Plains with. Batkhann then declares that Batzorig is the new tribal chief after being so brave in combat and unmasking the real culprit, while surpassing him in every way.
