Brownie is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series.

Characteristics[]

Brownies are yellow-skinned palette swaps of hammerhoods, bearing an orange-brown colouring and wielding a dark, greyish-blue hammer. Comparatively, brownies aren't too different from hammerhoods, the two monsters essentially having the same purpose as being mostly incompetent creatures that occasionally get off a lucky shot. Brownies tend to have more HP and greater attack power since they have to fulfill this role against players that are no longer troubled by hammerhoods.

Trivia[]

  • In the DS release of V, recruited Brownies might be named Mash or Bangerz, the names of two minor characters from VIII. This is also a play on the Irish dish "bangers and mash", a simple meal of sausages and mashed potatoes, which, incidentally, are also things to do with a hammer.

Etymology[]

Brownies are a part of English and Scottish folklore. They are household spirits, being diminutive little helpers who assist in house maintenance in exchange for small offerings of food. They do not like to be seen, and usually only perform their tasks in the quiet of night.
