Xiphos the Deathbringer (or simply Xiphos) is the primary antagonist of Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors.

Boss Battle

Xiphos is fought at the very end of the original game. He calls upon the player to use every skill he has learned so far, such as telegraphed attacks that must be blocked on reaction, and projectiles that can be reflected at him to inflict more damage. In his first form, he mostly keeps to his sword, striking with strength and precision.

After the player inflicts enough damage, he transforms into a monstrous creature resembling a cross between a human and a dragon. He begins to swing wildly, destroy portions of the battlefield, stomp on the Hero, breathe difficult-to-block fire breath, and even use his own Master Stroke.

Voice actors


In keeping with the Dragon Quest Swords quirk of all characters being named after a type of sword, a Xiphos is a double-edged, single-hand sword used by the ancient Greeks.
