|Dragon Quest V|
|Title(s)||Grandmaster of Nadiria|
|Race(s)||Demon (Unknown before using the Secret of Evolution, presumed to be human)|
Nimzo (formerly Mirudraas, Mildrath and Grandmaster Nimzo) is the antagonist in V. As is the case with most of the series' villains, Nimzo is mostly referred to and not actually encountered until the end of the game, though his pawns and powerful influence do well to wreak havoc in his place. According to his Dragon Quest IX description, he posseses enough physical and mental ability to rule the world by himself.
Nimzo initially appears to be an elderly, green-skinned demon, though this is merely a ruse to hide his true, grotesque form: a bloated, red demon with spearlike fangs, massive and wrinkled wings, four arms, and a spike-ended tail.
Nimzo does not receive much backstory, but is alluded to early in the player's adventure by a ghost servant in Uptaten Towers, where monsters and spirits worship him under duress. The monstars feed by night on the children of Roundbeck and the souls of the damned residents of the castle. The Hero and Bianca sneak off to investigate the haunting, and find a haunted housekeeper in Nimzo's service, who battles them and begs for his life. From this early point, it becomes clear that a Legendary Hero can stop him; thus, Nimzo seeks to neutralize the single biggest threat against him.
To accomplish his ends, Nimzo dispatches his monster armies from the netherworld of Nadiria and sinks the floating fortress Zenithia to a lake in the mortal realm. A golden orb falls on Uptaten, and its residents pass without a trace holding this key to the castle's restoration.
Nimzo then sends more monsters of the Order of Zugzwang in an attempt to forestall the Legendary Hero's coming, with a focus on the Zenithian bloodline, of which the Hero's chosen wife is a member. His ultimate goal seems to be the submission of the mortal realm and Zenithia to his vast power.
Through the events of the game, Nimzo's carefully-constructed plot is unraveled piece-by-piece across three generations, yet his powers only grow in preparation for his battle with the Legendary Hero. By the game's end, he is confronted and defeated.
|#301 - Nimzo|
|Description: Likes to kick in with Kaboom after taking the edge off his enemies by casting Bounce and Kasap.
Some thought he could only command from afar, but he has more than enough mental and physical ability to rule the world.
You should have a Priest and/or a Sage in your party. Equip that character with Minstrel's Manual to enable Gritty Ditty. The other three characters can be Warriors and/or Paladins. Equip these with Falcon Blades or Uber Falcon Blades. One of your fighters needs to have learned Fource abilities, equip that character with Armamentalist's Album to use Fources on all party members. Equip your healer and Fource caster with Meteorite Bracers or at least Agility Rings.
Remaining Turns: Continue to Falcon Slash with fighters. Healer can either attack to drain MP or heal as needed.
If the boss uses Disruptive Wave, start the above steps over.
The grandmaster also tends to use a lot of magic spells, so a member with Magic Mirror can prove useful too.
First official appearance outside of Japan. Called Mirudraas at the time.
Mirudraas1 recipe: Esterk x GoldSlime
Mirudraas2 recipe: Mirudraas1 x Orligon, or Mirudraas1 x Spikerous
Appears as an S-rank member of the Beast family and has his current name; he appears as his monstrous, true form.
Appears as a Rank X Monster in the Legendary family with the skillset "Nimzo" and the all important trait "Double Trouble".
Nimzo is set to appear in the future musical title along all other final bosses from the Dragon Quest franchise. He will more then likely be using his official battle music 'Satan'.
- Nimzo, in his non-monster form, bears a strong resemblance to Kami-Sama from Dragon Ball Z. It should be noted that Akira Toriyama designed both.
- According to the people of Lofty Peak and a person where you fight Bjorn, he is a former Loftinian who grew arrogant from his raw intelligence and power.
- He mistakes the Hero to be the Legendary Hero; even if the Hero doesn't bring any of his family, Nimzo will say the same speech and accuse the Hero of being the Legendary Hero. This may be a translation error, or Nimzo could just be genuinely confused by the fact that the Hero was able to destroy his plans and outsmart him.
- The name, Nimzo, is a reference to the chessmaster, Aron Nimzowitsch.
- He is the only character given a different script (faux Cyrillic) for his dialogue than all others in the same game. If this were read in a language that uses Cyrillic letter (e.g. Russian), it would be unintelligible.
