My name is Zoma. I rule the dark world. So long as I live, this world too shall be smothered in darkness. Suffer and despair for me. your suffering is my joy... All that has life shall become my sacrifice. The world will know despair.
Why do you struggle to live? My joy is thy destruction. My beauty thy death! Come forward then; and die in peace!


Zoma (ゾーマ Zōma) 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 by the hero of Dragon Quest III, who went to Alefgard. Zoma was finally defeated by this hero deep in the basement of his castle. However this fight was not easy, Zoma has a robe that makes him extremely powerful and resilient, the hero was forced to use the Orb of light to ward away its powers. Upon his defeat, the hero was given the title of the hero of Legend, Erdrick
