The demon-at-arms is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.


First appearing as a boss, the demon-at-arms is a general in monster armies. Even as a normal enemy, it still acts like a general, as seen in games like Dragon Quest Heroes I and Dragon Quest Heroes II. Regardless, they are strong monsters that can cause some trouble for a ill-prepared party.

Weaver's Peak (Real World)

Making its debut as a demon general sent to kill the spirit of the Hero (Dragon Quest VI), it attacks Weaver's Peak with Boss trolls, Sintaurs, Bad karmours, & Berzorkers catching the townspeople off guard, believing that the world was at peace since Murdaw was killed, despite evidence to the contrary. After fighting the monsters terrorizing the citizens, the Hero and his party see the Demon-at-arms duking it out with the Hero's spirit (Since Murdaw's petrification trick didn't turn it into a statue). The Hero can choose to talk to the spirit, gaining the Zap spell in the process and weakening the monster, or just fight the general directly. Either way, the Hero triumphs and Weaver's Peak is saved.

  • The first one of its kind is known as General Demon-At-Arms, and is more or less the same one from Dragon Quest VI. However, the notable things about this character are he is the commander of all armies in the VA, not just Dragon Quest series monsters, has a Skeleton swordsman as a Lieutenant, a Captain and 2 Samurai Grunts (The same characters from the Mini Ninjas cutscenes) and a Bodkin bowyer known as "The Bowyer".
