The Malevolantern is a monster class available in the game Dragon Quest VII.


The Malevolantern is a monster that looks like a lamp to trick people. It gives a significant boost to agility and slight increases to appearance and intelligence. However, there is a moderate drop in all other categories.


To become a Malevolantern, a character must first master the Mimic and Walking Corpse classes. The player can also find a Malevolantern heart in the Immigrant Town with 30-34 people in it. The player can also get one from fighting a Malevolantern in the Demon Lord's Lair in the past.
