Article on Dragon Quest Wiki Veronica (Dragon Quest XI)

Veronica (ベロニカ, Veronica) is a character from Dragon Quest XI and is the game's dedicated mage.

Origin[edit]

Veronica is a brash mage that the player first meets in Hotto, looking for her twin sister, Serena. Veronica and Serena are Keepers, a group of people dedicated to aiding the Luminary in defeating evil. Despite appearing very young, she is actually much older, but her magic was stolen by a monster named Jarvis.

The Luminary helps Veronica defeat Jarvis and get her sister and her magic back, but her age does not until return much later in the game (albeit temporarily). After returning to Hotto and learning about how to get to Yggdrasil, Veronica and Serena both swear to protect the Luminary in his quest to defeat the Dark One, and save Erdrea.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a costume[edit]

Veronica appears as a DLC Mii Costume for Mii Swordfighter. The sword is replaced by Veronica's Staff, one of her starting weapons in Dragon Quest XI.

Spirit[edit]

Veronica is represented as part of the Hero's Comrades spirit, available through the DLC Spirit Board. In the Spirit Battle, she is represented by a small Robin in her red alternate costume.

Other allusions[edit]

In Hero's Classic Mode path, the second battle involves fighting the Luminary and a small Robin in her red costume; as in the aforementioned spirit battle, this Robin is an allusion to Veronica.

Trivia[edit]

  • Veronica's trailer had a few references to Dragon Quest XI:
    • When she is introduced, her stage was Temple, referring to her hometown of Arboria.
    • She is shown, fighting Link and Female Robin. Link represents Jasper, a general who uses a sword and has blonde hair. Robin represents Krystalinda, a powerful witch with long white-blonde hair.
