Robbin' 'ood (sometimes spelt as Robbin' Hood, or Robbin' hood) is a recurring character in the Dragon Quest series, who first appeared as a boss and later minor character in Dragon Quest III.

Characteristics[]

Robbin' 'oods are buff humanoids with a green hood. They carry axes while wearing teal gloves and boots.

Appearance[]

Robbin' 'ood is a palette-swapped variant of a Hoodlum with green hood and pants and he is armed with an axe for combat. Sometimes, his axe is depicted having a series of spiky metal decorations jutting from the base of the blade towards its rear end, or just plain golden.

Personality[]

Robbin' 'ood is commonly depicted as a character who acts tough to his enemies, but is kind to his men. When he is defeated, however, he will beg for forgiveness, claiming he will never steal or do evil again.

The Robbin' 'ood of Dragon Quest X is depicted being a rather theatrical and showy being prone to have quick bursts of anger, often using crude language or death threats, towards people that annoy him, so much so that this time around, it cost him the loyalty of his merry men. Nevertheless, despite his shortcomings, Robbin' 'ood is not a bad person at heart, never following through with his threats.

Appearances[]

Main Games[]

Dragon Quest III[]

Skyfell Tower[]

Robbin' 'ood first appears in the Skyfell Tower west of Khoryv. He stole the crown from the king of Romaria and the Hero is recruited by the king to retrieve the crown. However, this is an optional sidequest, as failing to retrieve the crown does not prevent the hero from continuing in the game.

Within the tower, Robbin' 'ood attempts to thwart the hero by opening a trap door, which the hero's party falls through. Upon returning to the previous location, the hero finds he has vanished. However, after leaping off the edge where Robbin' 'ood had been standing, the hero finds him in the tower several floors below. This results in the first combat with him. After the battle, the hero acquires the king of Romaly's crown.

Dragon Quest X[]

A new version of Robbin' 'ood makes a reappearance in this title, his grand plan this time being able to reach Astoltia's moon and steal the great treasure kept there. In a twist of fate, Robbin' 'ood , alongside a somewhat coerced Hero, found themselves in the middle of a conflict between the resident population of the moon and invaders from outer space, with Robbin' 'ood ending up, just like his ancestor before him, mostly by accident becoming the savior of the besieged locals. Having accidentally stolen the heart of the queen of the moon people, Robbin' 'ood decided to give up on the treasure of the moon, not wanting to end his adventurous life just yet, promising to return once he was ready to retire.

Other games[]

Dragon Quest of the Stars[]

Robbin' 'ood is first encountered by the heroes on the continent of Batraccia after he steals the king's crown. He is later encountered on the continent of Mahrad, where he kidnaps the king of Mahrad in order to find the location of the Lahdan Elixir after being ordered to by Ferril. He is later encountered again on the continent of Savalua, where he kidnaps Queen Koral and misleads the heroes by giving them false leads before they confront him at Kanbi Tower.

Etymology[]

The name is a pun on the fictional character Robin Hood, a noble thief who carried a bow and arrow and wore green. Because thieves have been localised with Cockney as well as other largely rural accents from Dragon Quest VIII forward, the "g" in "robbing" and the "h" in "hood" are omitted by elision and written with apostrophes.

In Japan, the character is named after the robber Kandata from the story of The Spider's Thread, in which a bandit is given the chance to escape his imprisonment in hell by climbing a single thread of spider silk.
