Barbarus during his fight with Greygnarl in Upover

Barbarus is a large black dragon that allied with the Gittish Empire in Dragon Quest IX. He is Greygnarl's look-alike brother and mortal enemy. He, along with the rest of the Empire, was defeated over 300 years ago by Greygnarl, and, also like the rest of the Empire, was brought back with more power and attempted to obliterate Upover, but Greygnarl stopped him by flying in front of the giant energy ball. Barbarus is also the dragon that attacks you on the Starflight Express with Hootingham-Gore on his back. It is revealed when you check Greygnarl's spot in the Defeated Monsters List after you defeat Greygnarl in his grotto that he and Barbarus are brothers.

Dragon Quest IX

More than 300 years ago, Barbarus was allied with the Gittish Empire in their conquest of the world. However, Barbarus would be defeated by Greynarl and his allies along with the Gittish empire.

Unbeknownst to the world, Corvus would revive Barbarus along with a zombie Gittish empire, determined to destroy humanity. Unlike others like the triumgorate, Barbarus seems to have been fully aware that he had been brought back from the dead by Corvus, based on a comment to Greynarl.

Description: Greygnarl's nefarious nemesis. He was defeated long ago, but the Empire brought him back to wreak havoc once more.

He and Greygnarl once formed a duality of darkness and light, but his memory of this beneficial balance has been obliterated.

Abilities
Attack, slashes with claws, Dark Breath, War Cry, Wave of Panic
Spells
Kazam
Encountered at:
Realm of the Mighty - Exterior

Barbarus has a physical attack, a stronger variant (Slash with claws), War Cry, Kazam, Dark Breath and Wave of Panic, which lowers defence and agility.

He is weak to Light, so Life Fource should be used if available, and your sword-wielders should attack with Dragon Slash while your Priest or Sage keeps everyone healed.
