The hades condor (Hell Condor in Japan) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.


(Builders)The Hades condor is a monstrous bird that possesses large wings, a series of feathers near its neck that resembles a scarf; large, gigantic talons, and a large beak.

The physique of its own body makes it very susceptible to getting tired, as its muscles needs to exert so much force only to move a meter to the side, consuming energy rapidly and making it susceptible and defenseless against air weapons, especially ballistas.

It can be easily defeated by shooting quickly from the air and dodging its green orbs that spawn on random locations, that do quick damage, dodging its tornadoes by seeking roofed shelter, and by quickly attacking it with a falcon blade and with a ring of criticality to speed up its loss of health (as critical attacks deal 3x more damage than normal attacks).

Hades is the Greek god of the netherworld. It is also a term for the netherworld, where it may also be referred to as Tartarus, and is a place in which the souls of the dead are judged according to divine law. It has since become an alternative word for the modern Christian hell; and because of its lack of connection to Abrahamic faith, Nintendo was inclined to use it to satisfy the company’s early censorship guidelines.
