The purple orb is a recurring item in the Dragon Quest series usually of some importance but various in its usage for each game.


Dragon Quest III[]

A key item in Dragon Quest III. It is one of the Six Orbs required to hatch Ramia. It is held by Pimiko in the village of Jipang.

Pimiko is really the Orochi in disguise. By entering Orochi's Lair and fighting the Orochi, the heroes cause it to run away wounded into a nearby travel gate. Taking the travel gate, the heroes find themselves in Pimiko's chamber in Jipang. After fighting the Orochi a second time in the chamber, he leaves behind the purple orb.

Dragon Quest VIII[]

The Purple Orb is an important item that must be found at Master Rylus's burned down house in Farebury before the final battle with Rhapthorne.

Dragon Quest IX[]

A ridiculously rare orb of deep purple. Alchemise it! - Dragon Quest IX game description

The purple orb reappears in Dragon Quest IX as a very exotic alchemy ingredient, used for some of the highest alchemy recipes. It is a rare drop from Dhoulmagus, Rhapthorne, and (at certain level ranges) Nokturnus legacy bosses.
