The Purple Orb is a recurring item in Dragon Quest usually of some importance but various in its usage for each game.
Himiko is really the Orochi in disguise. By entering the Cave Northeast of Zipangu and fighting the Orochio, the heroes cause it to run away wounded into a nearby travel gate. Taking the travel gate, the heroes find themselves in Himiko's chamber in Zipangu. After fighting the Orochi a second time in the chamber, he leaves behind the purple orb.
- A ridiculously rare orb of deep purple. Alchemise it! - Dragon Quest IX game description
The purple orb reappears in Dragon Quest IX as a very exotic alchemy ingredient, used for some of the highest alchemy recipes. It is a rare drop from Dhoulmagus, Rhapthorne, and (at certain level ranges) Nokturnus legacy bosses.
