Abilities

Psaro the Manslayer is fought at the very end of the original game. He is notably one of the very first, if not the first, on-screen transforming final bosses in video game history, setting a longstanding trend. This battle is a test of endurance more than anything, as Psaro's only tricks are ones used by other bosses earlier on, so the player should already be familiar with the methods of dealing with them. He has seven different forms, effectively undergoing a metamorphosis:

First form

Psaro the Manslayer
Game Appearance Dragon Quest IV
Console DS
HP 2000
Skills Attacks twice per round
Haunts Nadiria - mountain behind Psaro's Castle


In this phase, Psaro relies on direct melee attacks.

Second form

Psaro the Manslayer
Game Appearance Dragon Quest IV
Console DS
HP 1600
Haunts Nadiria - mountain behind Psaro's Castle


This phase occurs when he loses right arm. With only one hand, he can only attack once per round.

Third form

Psaro the Manslayer
Game Appearance Dragon Quest IV
Console DS
HP 1600
Skills Attacks twice per round
Sweet Breath
Spells Buff
Sizzle
Crackle
Whack
Haunts Nadiria - mountain behind Psaro's Castle


This phase occurs when he loses his other arm. Without his weapon hands, Psaro switches to spellcasting.

Fourth form

Game Appearance Dragon Quest IV
Console DS
HP 1500
Skills Attacks twice per round
Disruptive Wave
Blistering breath
Belches hot gas
Meditate
Haunts Nadiria - mountain behind Psaro's Castle


At this point he discards his head.....and his abdomen turns green and morphs into a face. He starts using Disruptive Wave and breath attacks at this point.

Fifth form

Psaro the Manslayer
Game Appearance Dragon Quest IV
Console DS
HP 1500
Skills Attacks twice per round
Disruptive Wave
Belches hot gas
Haunts Nadiria - mountain behind Psaro's Castle


He grows new arms....and proceeds to start hitting you with them.

Sixth form

Psaro the Manslayer
Game Appearance Dragon Quest IV
Console DS
HP 1700
Skills Attacks twice per round
Disruptive Wave
Belches hot gas
Haunts Nadiria - mountain behind Psaro's Castle


He grows new legs, but uses same strategy.

Final form

Psaro the Manslayer
Game Appearance Dragon Quest IV
Console DS
HP 2000
Skills Attacks twice per round
Disruptive Wave
Blistering breath
Cold breath
Spells Bounce
Haunts Nadiria - mountain behind Psaro's Castle


In his ultimate form, Psaro grows a new head with three eyes, and immediately casts Bounce. The music changes to "Incarnation of Evil."

Trivia

  • There are two Psaros in the remake; the other one is a gender-confused naked man.
  • In the game 3D Dot Game Heroes if the player stays at a certain inn they will have a dream that heavily parodies Psaro and his attack on the human race except Rosa is unharmed, he decides to attack for no reason.
