Jörmun is a boss monster who appears in Dragon Quest XI.



A spoiler draws near! Prithee, read no further if it is thy wish to avoid being spoiled!

Jörmun, an ethereal jowler, was a mythical beast with whom the warriors of yore made a pact to seal the snow witch Krystalinda, and was tasked with keeping her powers in check while Krystalinda herself would be sealed within an ancient tome.

In the present day, the corrupt Jasper of Heliodor stumbles upon the sealed tome from which Krystalinda calls out and ends up making a deal with him to thwart his rivals. She takes Queen Frysabel of Sniflheim prisoner within the book, proceeds to freeze the city in an impenetrable wall of ice, and impersonates Her Majesty with uncanny ease. With this ruse, Krystalinda tricks the heroes into trekking to the Hekswood that they may defeat Jörmun and break the spell, telling them that soldiers from Heliodor went to slay the beast and never returned. He is seen battling Hendrik, who believed that the monster was the witch's lapdog. It knocks out Hendrik after he gets sidetracked by the Darkspawn's appearance, falling upon the wanted hero to defeat the beast. He does so, but instead, the Luminary inadvertently restores the witch to her full power with which she bests both the Luminary and Hendrik in single combat. She would then engage the party from within Sniflheim a short time later. Though Krystalinda is defeated, Frysabel remains trapped within the tome. To get her out, the royal chancellor Snorri proposes a test question between the two. Frysabel gives the correct answer and is freed, but as Snorri prepares to seal Krystalinda away for good, Frysabel pleads with him to spare her.

Jörmun is absent after the Fall of Yggdrasil, but is among those revived when Calasmos is released. Now with a malicious nature and much more aggressive and powerful, the party must fell him with light energy to release him from his earthly bond. Once this is done, he can be recruited as the guardian of the restored Cobblestone, even after Calasmos has been taken care of.
