Japanese Name シドー
Rōmaji Sydow
Title God Of Destruction

Malroth (Japanese: Sidoh, used in the GBC translations) is an antagonist in Dragon Quest II and a recurring enemy in the Dragon Quest series. Also known as 'The Destroyer', he is a god of destruction that hungers for the eradication of all things.

Characteristics

Malroth is a large demon covered mostly in blue scales (green in the original NES Dragon Quest II and in Dragon Quest IX) and wearing only a necklace with a skull on it. He has six limbs, four of which appear to be arms, a massive pair of wings and a serpent for a tail. His mouth is always shown as being a wide-opened grin, fangs clearly visible.

Being a god of destruction, Malroth is clearly powerful and capable of both altering his stats and those of his opponents, at least in the installment he originates from. He is also capable of breathing fire and can launch crippling physical attacks.

In all of his appearances Malroth has almost never spoken, preferring annihilation over conversation.

Appearances

Dragon Quest II

At the start of the game, Malroth is only referenced to and rarely by his name. All that is first hinted to is his penchant for destruction and the fact that Hargon threatens all of Alefgard by trying to summon him.

The player's party does not come face-to-face with the mighty demon until after Hargon is slain. When the party tries to move away from Hargon's throne their path will be blocked by flames and the floor will begin to break apart, heralding Malroth's return. Though successful in defeating Hargon, the sorcerer summoned the god of destruction in death, leaving the heroes to contend with him in the final battle of the game.

Dragon Quest Monsters

Malroth (Sidoh at the time) is one of the many boss characters players can breed to obtain. He also appears as the boss of the Gate of Demolition, though only on the second time through: players must first defeat Hargon and then go through the gate again to confront Malroth, whose presence is noted by Watabou when Hargon is defeated. It is interesting to note that this is the only time Malroth speaks in person, talking with pauses between words and occasionally syllables.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2

Malroth (Sidoh at the time) is present. Additionally, like several other boss characters, he was given an additional form called Genosidoh, a far more fearsome looking form than that of his original.

Malroth is present as a rank S member of the Demon family and is integral to synthesizing some of the most powerful monsters in the game, being needed to synthesize Zoma and Nimzo. Malroth himself can be synthesized by using a Living Statue and a Demon-at-arms, though other combinations exist.

Dragon Quest IX

"Brings about destruction by breathing both fire and ice, and disruption with Disruptive Wave. Hard to harm with darkness. This deity of the damned enjoys nothing more than the sacrificed souls of his most sincere followers. Mmmmm!" - Dragon Quest IX bestiary

Malroth appears as a Legacy Boss, obtained after completing Quest #151 (or received at special events).
