A Notso macho (formerly Dumbira) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.


Notso machos are rather fat creatures with yellow skin, albeit the green tops of their heads and 'ears', and black eyes with red irises. They are constantly slack-jawed with tongue lolling out and wear metal bands around their wrists and ankles. Their weapon of choice is a very large single-edged sword, which they constantly have at the ready to draw.

Monster Meadows Quotes


-"What am I sitting around here like a wimp for? I suppose it's because that's what wimps do."

-"I cannot be bought, and I cannot be threatened. But put the two together and I'm your monster."

-"Come on. You're not (player's name). (Player's name) is big and strapping, like myself."


-"Ugh huh huh! It's nice to be in a place where me and my monster chums can just chill."

-"Check out my sword! It could slice a single hair in half!"

-"Hey, (player's name). I can't help thinking you should bulk up a bit like me!"


Notso macho's name is meant to be interpreted as 'not so macho'. 'Macho' is a term adopted from the Spanish word for 'male' used to characterize something that is manly, either in appearance or demeanor. While these monsters' mannerisms may be befitting the word, their blubbery bodies certainly aren't.
