Dragon Quest Wiki

Vaipur is a boss monster in Dragon Quest VII and a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series.


Vaipur is a genie monster that has purple skin, wears an Arabian attire and flies on a grey cloud. From the 3DS remake onwards however, he has red and black coloring, most likely for differing him from the High djinkses of Mortamor's army.


Dragon Quest VII[]


Appearing at the end of the Sullied Sanctum, he is surprised that visitors have gotten through the darkness and monsters to see him, but tells them their adventure of ruining the Demon King's hard work is at an end, battling them. Though he is defeated, he ominously warns the party of the worst that's yet to come for Aeolus Vale and the Cirruses.

Vaipur can attack twice in one round, having some powerful attacks that can hurt a party after a round is over, such as cackling insanely and smushes with Press. Kaswoosh can hurt as well but can be offset by using Magic Barrier and armor that decreases spell damage. However, he will sometimes smile eerily at the party, wasting an attack.

As a wind monster, Vaipur has a high resistance to wind so don't bother with wind-based spells or abilities. Instead, buff the party with Kabuff, and use Magic Barrier if you have it and hack away. Make sure you have one party member that is using the Staff of salvation to heal wounds every round to cut down on the off-chance that Vaipur can kill one of them with his two attacks.
