The glombolero is a recurring equipment in the Dragon Quest series.


Dragon Quest III Remake[]

The glombolero is found in the Cloudsgate Citadel in remake versions of the game, nearby the lair of the Super Boss. It may be equipped by all vocations, providing +30 defence and reducing the cost of spells by 50%, rounded up. This feature stacks with the effects of the Mad cap for a 75% reduction.

Dragon Quest IV[]

The glombolero has a defence bonus of +47, and can absorb MP. It can be worn by Borya, Kiryl, Maya, and Meena.

Dragon Quest V[]

The glombolero has a defence bonus of +37. Bianca, Nera, the Hero's Daughter, and various monster companions can equip it. The absorption rate is still just 1⁄6th, and spells cast by party members are no longer affected. It can be acquired in exchange for 10 Mini medals (17 in the remakes) at the Medal King's Palace.

Dragon Quest VI[]

The glombolero has a defence bonus of +40, but reduces the wearer's style by 50. It can be equipped by the Hero, Milly, Ashlynn, Nevan, and the slime buddies. It is the reward for giving King Medford 80 mini medals.

The absorption rate has jumped up to 50%, but at the cost of only being able to siphon a quarter of a spell's MP. In the DS and Mobile remakes, this has changed so that half of a spell's MP is drained.

Dragon Quest VII[]

Once again, the glombolero has a defence bonus of +40, but reduces the wearer's style by 50. It can be equipped by the Hero, Maribel, Ruff, Sir Mervyn, and Aishe. It is received from turning in 95 mini medals to King Maximo.

The Glitzy glombolero, introduced in the 3DS remake, has a 50% chance to absorb 100% of the MP from an enemy spell. It increases defence by +50 and style by +3.
