Enemies in Dragon Warrior III appear randomly when traveling outside of cities or while exploring dungeons. Each step gives a fixed chance of encounter.

In the lists below, enemies have the following attributes:

  • HP, which varies between 75-100% of the listed value.
  • Exp, which is awarded for killing the monster. It is divided evenly among the party, rounded down.
  • Gold, which is rewarded for killing the monster.
  • Win, which is dropped sometimes from the defeated monster.

Regular enemies[edit]

Data refers to the remakes. The differences from the original NES release are as follows:

  • 90% of NES monsters had the same HP, the remaining 10% had less HP;
  • 85% of NES monsters gave 33%-34% more experience points;
  • 60% of NES monsters gave 20%-22% more Gold.

Default sorting is by the product of Exp and Gold, that is close to game progression. Sort the table by Sprite if you want to see palette swaps close to each other.
