Orochi is a monster in the Dragon Quest game series. It first appeared in Dragon Quest III, modeled after the legendary Japanese monster Yamata no Orochi, which is also the name of the monster in Japanese versions.

Appearance

The design of Orochi is the one of an enormous reptilian being which is covered in green scales and has five heads instead of one. At the top of each head there are grey purplish colored crests that go from the front of the head to the base of the neck. In each limb there are four fingers that end up in white, sharp claws. It has red eyes.

Battles

In Dragon Quest III, the Orochi masquerades as the queen of the village of Jipang, demanding the sacrifice of young girls. When Erdrick defeats the Orochi in her lair, she drops the Orochi's sword, before retreating through a portal to Pimiko's Palace in Jipang. When it becomes clear that the Orochi is pretending to be Pimiko, Erdrick again fights the Orochi, slaying her and freeing the people of Jipang.

Monsters

Orochi appears as the boss of the 100 Pals Room Gate, its speech and surroundings an allusion to its appearance in Dragon Quest III. Once Terry defeats it in battle, it will go on a rampage due to its being upset about losing. Its massive build and weight causes the bit of land Terry is standing on to start to give way, putting him in danger. Just in time, a mysterious cloaked swordsman (who is actually Terry's future self) arrives on the scene and finishes Orochi off, saving Terry's life. This entire scene will only occur if Terry defeats Orochi before clearing the Gate of Reflection.

Orochi can be bred through two ways. The first way (which is recommended) is breeding either a GreatDrak or an Andreal with a MedusaEye. The second way is breeding any dragon with a monster of the Boss family, with the dragon being the pedigree. Alternatively, Orochi can be stolen from a foreign master, although it will only appear at the highest level ranges. Orochi is required to breed both Xenlon and Baramos.

Joker 2

Orochi can be obtained in Joker 2 by combining the first four Giant Monsters encountered in the main story. These are Wormonger, Missing lynx, Bjørn the Behemoose and Empyrea.

In order to create a Xenlon, Orochi must be synthesized alongside an Ethereal Serpent, Boreal Serpent, and Alabast dragon.

Additionally, in order to obtain Leonyx, Orochi must be synthesized alongside a Wildcard, Marquis de Léon, and Don Mole.

His body size is 3.

Joker 2 Professional

Unlike the regular version, Orochi must now be synthesized through a quadrilineal synthesis using Torai Wanda + Torai Wanda & Bilhaw + Bilhaw. His body size remains 3.

Trivia

  • Orochi's gender is confirmed in Dragon Quest III as female by NPC dialogue.
  • If Erdrick does not chase Orochi through the portal upon her initial defeat (instead leaving the cave), she will be standing in the same spot later, forcing Erdrick to battle her again. She does not drop the Orochi sword more than once, though.
