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 nomadic living style.


When the hero enters this town of the great plains, he/she is thought to be here to see Sarantsatsral. When he does visit Sarantsatsral, the hero explains of his quest of finding the Fyggs. Then Sarantsatsral says that they do not know of such a fruit. Then a man comes in saying the beast is back. Sarantsatsral says that she will help you on your quest if you stop the beast. You step out and see the beast (A Badboon) is not attacking, but running for Batkhan's tent. You stop him by intimidation. He then runs off. Then Batkhann says he must teach his son, Batzorig, to fight.

He sends him to the Hunter's Yurts to train. When you get there, Batzorig refuses to learn. And he goes of to a cave in the Yurts. When you see him, he is talking to the beast, telling him not to visit him anymore. Then he sees you in surprise. He tells the hero to not mention this to anyone. He says he befriended this beast and his name is Khoonbish. Batzorig reveals that Sarantsatsral is a monster in disguise. He needs Bodura Grass to reveal her true form. His mother then appears as a spirit and agrees to help you get bodura grass.

You have to go Mt. Ulzuunn to get to a place called Gerzuun, where you can get Bodura Grass. Everyone in the depths of Gerzuun are ghosts, not knowing they are dead. You go deep and collect the Bodura grass. When you get back to the village, the people are gathered around, watching Batzorig slay Khoonbish. When he is about to deal the final blow, he and Knoonbish head straight for Sarantsatsral. Knoonbish attacks her to stop her from fleeing so Barzorig can throw the crushed Bodura Grass on Sarantsatsral, forcing her true colors to reveal themselves.

She transforms into a hideous, fat, warty, big, pointy tounged, creepy, annoying monster. Batzorig and Khoonbish attack, but Larstastnaras (Lars-tast-nar-az) fends them off, injuring them badly. You then engage her in battle after she declares that she will take over the Illugazer Plains. When you defeat her, you find she is just a slugger that ate a Fygg so she could be a "somebody". Batzorig sends her and Khoonbish to be companions. His father then declares than Batzorig is e new tribal chief after being so brave in combat and for surpassing him in every way. That ends the story.
