|“||You know, of course, that to stand against mighty Baramos is to throw away your life . And yet still you came. That is a decision you will soon come to regret. But you shall not do so for long... For I shall rend you asunder and devour your innards before you realize you are dead!||„|
|~ Baramos to the Hero/Heroine.|
Baramos is the villain who terrorizes the Overworld in Dragon Quest III, a world that bears a striking resemblance to Earth.
When Ortega, the Hero's father, is seemingly killed by a dragon, his child must finish what he started. After visiting the King of Aliahan, they set out on a quest to defeat the Archfiend. After gathering the six Orbs and awakening Ramia, they go into Baramos's castle to fight the Archfiend. After a threat about eating Erdrick's innards, the two fight for the fate of Aliahan, with the Hero triumphant. Baramos is slain and the King of Aliahan throws a celebration, seemingly marking the end of the game. However, Zoma announces that Baramos was an underling and announces his intentions to throw Aliahan into darkness, just as he did with Alefgard, forcing the hero to continue their quest.
Baramos appears as one of the legacy bosses in Dragon Quest IX, his map can be obtained by completing the quest "Brian's Dyin' Wish".
- This monster also appears in the Super Famicom, Game Boy Color and iOS/Android remakes, with unique fighting music.
- The fact that Bones of Baramos' design were based on a Skelegon, which didn't match to his regular appearance is a famous joke among the Dragon Quest series and fan-community.
- Dragon Quest Monsters: Super Light webcomics even reflected this, where in the comic, Baramos wonders his bone counterpart were actually his real form.
