Macho Picchu is a boss encountered in Dragon Quest VII. It appears to be a mucho macho that has taken possession of the Cirrus surplice. It was locked in the Multipleximus Maximus by the descendants of the Cirrus.


Macho Picchu possesses very high attack power and very high hit points. It can charge at the party and perform Sword Dance. If this is in combination with Twin Hits, this can be devastating. However, despite all of this, Macho Picchu can only attack once per turn.

Having a Luminary that knows Hustle Dance can go a long ways but beyond this, Macho Picchu shouldn't pose a moderately leveled party too much trouble. Equipping the Miracle sword on either the Hero or Aishe can reduce the need for healing.


  • His original name, Nengal, is probably related to the Babylonian deity, Nergal. His current name is a play on the ancient Machu Picchu citadel in Peru.
  • Macho Picchu's gender is never explicitly stated, Ruff bringing the matter to mind when spoken to after the fight. While Macho Picchu, being a mucho macho in looks, appears male, it wore a robe meant to be put on a statue of a female spirit.
