Monster Info
Japanese name ぬしさま
Romanji Nushi sama
Family Aquatic Family
Sub-type Whale/Boss
Introduced in Dragon Quest IX

Lleviathan is a boss monster that is shaped like a whale in Dragon Quest IX. Lleviathan can be fought twice in the game, one is the fygg-changed form of Dylan Jones, and the other is a real Lleviathan that lives around for a long time. The first is a boss that must be beaten to continue the main story, the other is available in the post-game, and met through a quest given by Jona Jones.


Story Boss

Lleviathan has a lot of HP for this point in the game, but he only attacks once per turn. He can use a strong physical attack, Party Pooper (a massive swipe that hits the whole party, dealing progressively less damage to each member) and Tidal Wave, which deals damage to the whole party.

As he only attacks once per turn, it is fairly easy for a Priest to keep up with healing while your physical characters attack. He does hit quite hard though, so you should be wearing good armour from Port Llaffan, and your Priest should be in the last party slot (to reduce damage from Party Pooper).

Boss Monster from Quest #039

Lleviathan does much the same thing is before, though he has higher stats and attacks twice per turn this time. After defeating Corvus, Lleviathan shouldn't be a challenge.

  • The Japanese name of Lleviathan is ぬしさま, where ぬし(nushi) means "the Lord" or "god" and さま(sama) is a suffix used for courteous addressing. This is probably because Lleviathan is worshipped by the habitants of Porth Llaffan as the God of Sea.
  • Lleviathan is a reference to the Leviathan , a sea monster mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible. It appears as a metaphor in the Book of Job as a creature who swallows up a man named Jonah. This is referenced when Lleviathan swallows Jona before the Hero engages the creature in battle.
  • See Follow That Fish! for more information on the post-game quest that summons Lleviathan.
