Zoma is a lot larger and more powerful here, be lucky Erdrick did not fight him


Zoma is the final boss of Dragon Quest III. He is a demon King who ruled over Torland, he sealed away the creator of Torland, Rubiss, and blocked much of Torland and kept only a continental landmass called Alefgard. Zoma then sent a being named Baramos to conquer the upper world. He was defeated and Erdrick went to Alefgard. Zoma was finally defeated by Erdrick deep in the basement of Zoma's castle. Zoma has a robe that makes him extremely powerful and resilient, Erdrick was forced to use the Orb of light to ward away its powers. Zoma has a second form in Dragon Warrior Monsters called AsuraZoma which makes him much larger and lets him wield a giant scythe which he can use to fire energy attacks.
