Monster Info
DQMJ2 - Fluffy
Japanese name わたぼう
Rōmaji Watabou
Family Plant
Introduced in Dragon Quest Monsters

Watabou is a supporting character in Monsters and currently a monster exclusive to games in the spin-off series. He is the guardian spirit of GreatTree and the monster that brings Terry to that kingdom.


Watabou is a small, fluffy creature that carries traits similar to those of monkeys. He is primarily blue in color and has a ball on the end of an antenna sticking out the top of his head.

Watabou is a playful sort, if not also blunt at times. While he appears frequently through Monsters there is never much to discern from his character other than an abundance of optimism, even in the face of grim situations.


Dragon Warrior Monsters

Watabou appears at the beginning of the game, looking for Terry's sister Milly. While distressed at hearing Warubou having gotten to her first, he allows Terry to follow him back to GreatTree so that he may become the monster master of the kingdom.

Watabou will appear whenever the player beats a boss monster at the end of a gate the first time, often giving a humorous quip before taking Terry back to GreatTree. The player can also occasionally meet him in the monster staples when they first become available, Watabou sitting at a wooden table while eating some meat and will offer some to Terry if he continues to speak with him. After the player beats the game they will get the chance to have Watabou join their team, though only after they have beaten all the evil lords that stand as bosses at the end of each family-specific gate.

Dragon Warrior Monsters 2

While not appearing in the main story, Watabou will appear in the Arena area when Terry appears, next to Durran. When you get the opportunity to fight Terry, he will be one of the monsters on Terry's team. He can also be obtained in Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 by breeding a Warubou with Watabou from Dragon Warrior Monsters using the "Terry" option on DWM2's main menu.
