Malroth (Sidoh in the Game Boy games) is the final boss of the Famicom/NES game, Dragon Quest II (also known as Dragon Warrior II), as well as its remakes. He's a god of destruction who demands sacrifices. Malroth was the deity that Hargon and his cult worshipped, and he was able to summon it as a last resort before his defeat at the hands of the heroes.
This menace resembles a reptilian green (sometimes blue) frilled demon with a yellow belly, yellow eyes, four arms, a pair of wings and a snake for a tail. It can breathe fire and heal himself using the spell Full Heal.
Malroth's name is only mentioned occasionally within the game and does not truly appear until the very ending. In fact, in the original NES version his existence is never mentioned at all, as he just appears out of nowhere after the player defeats Hargon. After its original appearance, it has become a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest Monsters series as well as other spin-offs.
- He appears in Dragon Quest IX as a Legacy Boss by obtaining his map after completing quest #151 "Pushy Peddler", only avaliable through Wi-Fi.
- In Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2, he can be synthesized with a Hargon and either a Buffalogre, Khalamari or Living Statue.
- In Dragon Quest Battle Road Victory, Malroth is one of Nokturnus' finest warriors and the final boss of the Dragon Quest II story arc.
