1[[foldercontrol]]²²The cast of ''[=DQB2=]''. Please note that there are some spoilers in the final few folders.²²[[folder:Isle of Awakening]]²A barren land that once was home to a legendary builder.²!!The Builder²The hero/heroine of the game. An apprentice Builder who managed to escape the clutches of the Children of Hargon, and takes it upon themself to rebuild the realm that had been laid to waste.²----²* AllLovingHero: Animals will follow and be tamed with just a pat on the head. Monsters will follow even after they just got the stuffing kicked out of them just in exchange for some monster munchies. Cult leaders will drop their belief system and follow after just a short conversation. Villagers will leave their homes to follow anywhere even putting their lives at risk and leave as soon as they're told to. The God of Destruction himself is their BFF. Is there anyone that can't be swayed by the Builder?²* BashBrothers: With Malroth.²* ContrastingSequelProtagonist: While the Builder from ''Videogame/DragonQuestBuilders'' was more snappy, stubborn, easily exasperated and sometimes even rude according to how the [=NPCs=] responded to him in conversation, this new builder is always jolly and fun to be around even in the face of flat out war or constant death threats from Captain Whitebones. Only Bonanzo (who is an {{Expy}} of Rollo from Chapter 1 of the first game) gets somewhat snappy responses from the builder and it's more of a CallBack to how rude the first builder was to Rollo than any mean spiritedness. [[spoiler:It's only when the residents of Moonbrooke essentially trick the Builder into creating a jail cell for Malroth to be trapped in, and the ensuing fallout and damage to their friendship, that the Builder's happiness fades a fair deal (their expression is even [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness locked to "serious" instead of the default smile]]) and they become a bit more short-tempered in their implied dialogue.]]²* CrazyPrepared: The large leather-bound book the Builder constantly writes into and references from [[SeenItAll has an answer for EVERYTHING]].²* FearlessFool: Sometimes, and particularly in the prologue sequence. Rather than shaking in fear of the monsters promising their imminent demise, the Builder simply does whatever chores are asked of them because they enjoy having a task.²* GiverOfLameNames: They aren't very good when it comes to making names for their creations. Special mention goes to the "Buggy Buggy", which ''everyone'' agrees is a stupid name.²* GoodFeelsGood: It can be a ship full of cutthroat monster pirates or a budding township, the Builder ultimately thrives on the simple pleasure of making things for others. [[spoiler: Their childhood dream even was to become a great builder and make friends so they could live creating for those close to them.]]²* HeroicMime: It wouldn't be a ''Dragon Quest'' game without the main character being one of these. It's also played with, since their interactions with other characters imply that they ''do'' have a personality.²* KidnappedByTheCall: Kidnapped by a group of slaver monsters followers of Hargon and forced into their service. However since their orders were basically fulfilling their childhood dream it quickly turned into JumpedAtTheCall.²* MagneticHero: Wherever they go, the Builder gathers people and gets them to join in on the building fun quite easily. They even do this in [[spoiler:Malhalla, which is entirely populated by monsters]].²* {{Manchild}}: A remarkably [[ThePollyanna upbeat and carefree]] sort who just loves the heck out of building. [[spoiler: Taken UpToEleven in the final scene of the story. That book they cherish? Full of ''childhood scribbles'' that have actually been the source of their ideas as they go.]] ²* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: [[spoiler:Once the whole situation with Malroth and his imprisonment in the last third of the Moonbrooke storyline happens, the Builder's usually cheery face is replaced with the "serious" expression and it doesn't change back until the end of the main quest when Malroth and the Builder are reunited and on good terms once more. Your NPC friends will comment on the Builder's change in demeanor during this section, as well.]]²* PalsWithJesus: Admittedly, neither of them actually know it until near the end of the game, but the Builder's best friends with the God of Destruction. [[spoiler:This friendship is what helps the Hero bond with the monsters of Malhalla.]]²* PersonOfMassConstruction: Naturally.²* ThePollyanna: The Builder never stops smiling no matter what, which is {{lampshaded}} many times throughout the game. [[spoiler:That is, up until Malroth leaves the Builder's party after returning from Moonbrooke.]]²* PurelyAestheticGender: Thanks to the changing mirror allowing the builder to change their appearance including gender, the localization team took great measures to make no references to the builder's gender.²* TheSmartGuy: Able to come up with weapon recipes on the fly.²* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler: The one thing Hargon didn't count on was [[ThePowerOfFriendship the Builder and Malroth becoming friends]].]]²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Kelp. At least, that's what Captain Whitebones believes.²* VirtualPaperDoll: By default, the Builder's appearance will change to reflect currently-equipped gear, but can also use a Dressing Table to change appearance based on any outfit/weapon of the player's choice {that they have made at least once) while still retaining the stats of whatever's actually equipped.²** This can actually end up being a touch hilarious due to a ''lack'' of DevelopersForesight: [[spoiler:during the Skelketraz sequence, if you have a main body appearance allotted, it will remain in place for the entire sequence, despite the ''intent'' being that, at various points, you are stripped of your clothes entirely and are then forced into the rags clothing from ''Builders 1'' while a prisoner]].²** This, combined with IRejectYourReality, is actually used as a game mechanic to obtain the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Uber Falcon Blade]]: Equip a (cursed) Sword of Ruin and use the Dressing Table to change the display equipped sword to a Falcon Blade, and the Sword of Ruin will transform into the Uber Falcon Blade (and will no longer be cursed).²²!!Malroth²A young amnesiac who you find shortly after arriving at the Isle of Awakening. He has no ability to build whatsoever, but is incredibly strong and a fierce fighter.²----²* [[AntiAntiChrist Anti-Antichrist]]: According to Hargon, Malroth is destined to destroy everything. However, thanks to his friendship with the Builder, Malroth recognizes the value of building and doesn't want to destroy the world. He also finds Hargon's talk about [[YouCantFightFate fate]] to be annoying. Instead of destroying the world, Malroth [[spoiler: works with the builder to transform Hargon's illusory world into a real one.]]²* AntiHero: Malroth is a WalkingWasteland who has a quite a violent streak and some antisocial tendencies. It's fortunate that he's your friend, and that his destructive nature is put to good use.²* BashBrothers: With the Builder.²* BloodKnight: In contrast to the relatively peaceful Builder, he'll advocate violence as a solution, and actively seeks out fights with monsters.²* CarryABigStick: His primary weapon is an Oaken Club.²* DestroyerDeity: Malroth is the Master of Destruction.²* EekAMouse: He's not too fond of starfish.²* EnemyWithout: [[spoiler: The FinalBoss is the manifestation of whatever malice he had from his previous life left.]]²* IAmWho: It's pretty clear from the get-go that Malroth is the reincarnation of the God of Destruction, even if he doesn't remember his past.²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He is abrasive and constantly gets into arguments with others, but he really does care for his friends, especially the Builder.²* MissingReflection: Using Ra's Mirror on him reveals that he lacks a reflection.²* NatureVsNurture: The King hypothesizes that meeting the builder, who has a very positive influence on him, when he was just reborn may be the reason why this version of Malroth is decidedly not evil.²* PersonOfMassDestruction: Malroth's an absolute powerhouse unmatched in the brute force category. ...He is ''also'' utterly incapable of making things. Or not nearly breaking things more in the ''attempt'' of making things.²* {{Reincarnation}}: Of the God of Destruction. Given how the naming localization was handled, [[WalkingSpoiler it's functionally impossible to hide.]]²* TalkToTheFist: [[spoiler: Malroth's response to Hargon's gloating is to smack him in the face with a club.]]²* RedEyesTakeWarning: Malroth's red eyes hint at his great destructive power as the Master of Destruction.²* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Since Hargon couldn't serve him in the past, he means to manipulate him now.]]²* WalkingShirtlessScene: Instead of a shirt, Malroth always wears what looks like a cropped jacket that is always open. {{Lampshaded}} by a disapproving Lulu early in the game.²* WalkingSpoiler: From the word "go", it's ''incredibly'' obvious who he somehow is. [[spoiler: The pervading circumstances, however, are the ''actual'' mystery.]]²* WalkingWasteland: Can't build anything no matter how hard he tries. [[spoiler:Right up until the Builder saves him from Hargon and he has to build a Healing Herb for the builder before s/he dies.]]²* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Malroth, being the incarnation of the God of Destruction, has no idea what love is, and is very confused by the miners' behavior toward [[DudeMagnet Babs]].²-->'''Malroth''': 'Love', you say? Never heard of it. If you find any, can you give me a bit?²²!!Lulu²A fellow castaway who comes from an affluent family.²----²* LethalChef: Her first dish had ''interesting'' implications, and Malroth is the only one who actually enjoys it.²--> 'Some weep at the sight of Lulu's cake, some scream blue murder at its taste, while others faint at the smell alone.''²* MinorMajorCharacter: Lulu forms a PowerTrio with the Builder and Malroth, but the fact that she never leaves the Isle of Awakening severely cuts down on the amount of time she's on screen.²* PaletteSwap: Of Pippa's model from the previous game. Ironically enough, she's the only character in this game who uses said model.²²!!Hairy Hermit²A mysterious hammerhood spirit who offers his aid to the Builder.²----²* ActuallyIAmHim: [[spoiler:He comes to remember that he's the original builder who is repeatedly mentioned in the backstory.]]²* TheMentor: A bizarre mix of EccentricMentor and MentorMascot with some SpiritAdvisor on top as he is [[spoiler: the ghost of a long dead builder.]]²²!!Captain Brownbeard²A sailor who offers his ship to the Builder so they may travel to the other islands in the realm.²----²* {{Gonk}}: Short, hairy, thick lips, and a mouth at the bottom of his face so big it makes Trolls look modest.²* {{Malaproper}}: His dialogue is peppered with pitiful approximations of actual sailing terms & expressions. ²* {{Pirate}}: Claims to be one, but it's questionable.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Furrowfield]]²Once a fertile farming island, the presence of the Spoilspores and the Children have reduced it to a rotted wasteland.²!!Rosie²An aspiring farmer who dreams of restoring the famed Furrowfield Farm back to working condition.²* IWasJustJoking: She picks up this style of humor from Pastor Al [[spoiler:[[HisQuirkLivesOn after his death]].]]²* MementoMacGuffin: Her Deitree seed (which is the focus for most of the Furrowfield chapter) was a gift from her late older sister.²* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Teal blue.²²!!Bonanzo²One of the farmers Rosie managed to convince to help her restore Furrowfield Farms. He initially wants nothing to do with the builder and follows the Creed of the Children of Hargon.²* {{Expy}}: Of Rollo from the first game, to the point where they use the same model.²²!!Pastor Al²A member of the Children of Hargon, a magus who has developed a fondness for the humans he reigns over.²----²* HeelFaceTurn: Starts out as a devoted priest of the Children of Hargon, but as the Deitree grows he finds himself taking the side of the builders and farmers.²* IWasJustJoking: Pastor Al is a fan of this form of humor. However since he was actually serious about his threats before his HeelFaceTurn, when he jokes about murdering everyone or destroying the Deitree everyone's horrified reaction is understandable before he laughs it off.²* OnlyKnownByHisNickname: Everyone calls him Pastor Al, with only the Brainy Badboon calling him by his full name, Alakazam.²* PunnyName: Take away the space, and his name is "pastoral", referencing his love of nature.²²!!Wrigley²A friendly wiggly who offers his aid to the Builder in purifying tainted land.²----²* FertileFeet: In a sense - while he doesn't technically have feet, he'll purify the land around any area a ball of Worm Food is planted, and convert any soil into farm land if a scarecrow is planted in there.²²!!Dog²A Furrowfield dog who helps the Builder rescue Lillian and Saffron before aiding in locating new seeds.²----²* HelloInsertNameHere: The player gets to name them when they first join the town. They do state that they have a different name when you change them back into a human, but they never reveal it and choose to keep on going by whatever the player decided on.²* MythologyGag: Using the Mirror of Ra on her turns her back into a human, just like the Princess of Moonbrooke in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestII''.²* TheNoseKnows: She's able to sniff out seeds buried around the area.²* WasOnceAMan: She was turned into a dog as part of a curse, but retains the name the Builder gives her as a dog.²²!! Saffron and Lillian²Two sisters you meet in the Furrowfield swamp.²----²* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Saffron sees herself as the responsible one; fearing the builder and wanting to follow Hargon's teachings, however she never proposes anything that'll get them out of their predicament. It's Lillian who is always looking for solutions and gets them out of the swamp and to a safe haven, and Saffron's foolish belief in Hargon that got them into trouble in the first place.²* RedOniBlueOni: Saffron is the ShrinkingViolet, meek and cult fearing older sister, while Lillian is the younger headstrong and determined younger sister.²* SiblingYinYang: Their personalities are decidedly opposite in every possible way.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Khrumbul-Dun]]²A desert mining island, that has had its mine closed by the Children.²!!Babs²A girl that has lived on Krumbul-Dun since she was a little kid.²----²* ActionGirl: She'll take up a sword to defend the town against monsters even after donning a PlayboyBunny outfit.²--> '''Malroth''': Babs isn't exactly dressed in armor-she's barely dressed in anything!²* DudeMagnet: The only man in Khrumbul-Dun who doesn't show some level of romantic attraction for her is her father. She takes advantage of this, using the promise of both a PlayboyBunny suit and a dance routine in order to motivate the miners to work harder.²* GenerationXerox: She becomes a dancer just like her mom before her. Which actually fills her father with pride.²* TakenForGranite: [[spoiler: After the construction of the Silver Bar, courtesy of Madusa]].²²!!Goldirox²A golem locked away underground, prohpesized to bring prosperity to Krumbul-Dun.²----²* ChivalrousPervert: Really wants to see Babs in a PlayboyBunny outfit, but is a kind golem all around.²* GoldenSuperMode: By the time he gets fully upgraded.²* GoodCounterpart: To the Cantlin Golem from the previous game.²* IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: After [[spoiler:sacrificing himself to save the mine]] he still insists that Babs goes to Island of Awakenings and becomes a builder.²* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: For the battle against Madusa, the builder equips Goldirox with a pair of golden gauntlets that when used to guard, create a shield that reflects back Madusa's beam of petrification.²* PowerupMount: Several times throughout the Khrumbul-Dun chapter, the builder gets to ride on Goldirox's back, including during the chapter's boss.²* TokenHeroicOrc: Most golems in the franchise are enemies (in fact, a particularly large one was the final boss of the first chapter in the previous game). This one is fully on your side.²²!!Jules²A goodybag obsessed with rare metals and jewels.²----²* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: Speaks as such.²* BenevolentMonsters: Somewhat unintentionally, but he does help your town discover silver veins, not to mention his complete lack of hostility makes it unsurprising when he does eventually join you.²* GoldFever: In a sense, as he enjoys ''looking'' at it (and other rare metals, as well as diamonds), but never attempts to steal any or asks you to bring him any. Either it's a ''very'' mild case, or he's learned to suppress said desires.²* PunnyName: [[DontExplainTheJoke Jewels.]]²* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: He's the only monster who joins you in this chapter[[note]]not counting Goldirox, who was built to protect the town[[/note]] (and one of the few Goodybags you encounter in the game), yet he's treated normally by the townsfolk once he goes up to the surface - they don't even bat an eye when he joins the town. Then again, by that point, they have a solid gold golem living amongst them, so it could merely be a case of SeenItAll.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Third Island]]²!Skelkatraz²A prison island ruled by the Children of Hargon where prisoners are forced to engage in spirit-crushing "rehabilitation".²²!!Molly²An elder woman who has lived in Skelkatraz for many years and gained enough trust from the Children of Hargon to earn the position of manager of their storeroom.²----²* ChekhovsGunman: At first she appears to just be there to provide you with Cabbage Seeds for your punishment in the fields. But she actually teaches you how to tame monsters and how to cook Monster Munchies.²* CoolOldGuy: She's one of the few people on the Builder's side (besides Malroth) on the island.²* TheBusCameBack: At the very end of the game, the Builder unexpectedly receives a letter from her asking you to come find her and the other monsters from Skelkatraz and Malhalla that somehow got shipwrecked along with the Ark in a Buildertopia island.²* TheOldConvict: She's been aroung longer than any other human in the island so she's got plenty of stories to tell.²* YouAreNumberSix: The guards in Skelkatraz call her 784 as that's her prisoner number, other humans usually still refer to her as Molly.²²!!Gottfried²A famous escapist that got himself locked in Skelkatraz just so he could prove that he could escape it. Unfortunately he's been MIA and no one knows his whereabouts.²----²* KilroyWasHere: You find traces of his escape plan in multiple locations around Skelkatraz, that in turn help you escape the island.²* PosthumousCharacter: He's repeatedly mentioned by the inhabitants of Skelkatraz and his preparations pave the way for you to escape. [[spoiler:Actually averted when you discover that he's become a Zombie living in the sewers. Still he's not really a character anymore as his mind seems to have been lost for good and has no personality left to speak of.]]²* PunnyName: “Got freed.”²* WasOnceAMan: His daring escape [[spoiler:failed, and he apparently died or drowned in the sewers, he haunts the place as a Zombie now.]]²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Fourth Island]]²!Moonbrooke, The Land of Ceaseless Strife²A snow-covered land consumed in a never-ending war between humanity and monsterkind... on purpose, all for the glory of never-ending destruction. It shares a name with a kingdom both the Builder and Lulu know, but it becomes clear quickly that something is dreadfully amiss...²²!!Anessa²A devout member of the Children of Hargon and Moonbrooke's general.²----²* ActionGirl: She's the bodyguard of the King and personally leads the Moonbrooke army against the siege force of Hargon's Children.²* ChainmailBikini: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Anessa wears a practical long-sleeved tunic and trousers with a simple (non boob-shaped) chestplate on top.²* DefrostingIceQueen: Once [[spoiler:the war is over and she admits she never believed in Hargon's creed,]] she often lets slip her PluckyGirl personality, despite her constant self-reminders that she must strive to remain TheStoic.²* EvilFormerFriend: After [[spoiler:Warwick is revealed as the spy,]] she's the most visibly shaken as they used to be friends since they were children.²* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: Post-game, when talking to Anessa, she will ask you to build her a room full of stuffed animals.²* LadyOfWar: Of the [[TheStoic stoic]] type as the General of Moonbrooke's army.²* RedHerring: Warwicke helps the builder makes the connection that since the builder gave her [[spoiler:Ra's Mirror]] for safekeeping and not much later [[spoiler:the mirror reappears in the monsters' fortress,]] that means she is the spy. This is compounded by her self-professed absolute conviction in the Children of Hargon's creed. As it turns out [[spoiler:Warwick is the one who gave the mirror to the monsters and possibly even arranged for you to find the mirror there to frame Anessa. It is later revealed she was never even a follower of Hargon, but kept the facade to avoid suspicion.]]²* TomboyWithAGirlyStreak: Anessa at first seems to be a tough, no-nonsense general, but her preferred room aesthetic is Cute, and she likes [[GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals stuffed animals]].²²²!!Warwick²A member of Moonbrooke's army.²----²* FalseFriend: [[spoiler: Warwicke convinces you that Anessa is the spy and constantly delays exposing her or trying to get Malroth out of his cell, this is because he is the actual spy.]]²* HateSink: [[spoiler:Once his betrayal is exposed, it's clear that he's the reason behind all the backstabbing and the status of Moonbrooke before you showed up.]]²* MeaningfulName: The RealLife 16th Earl of Warwick also known as ''Kingmaker'' during the UsefulNotes/WarsOfTheRoses. After helping secure a King on the throne he famously [[spoiler:switched sides, betrayed his King and helped put another person on the throne. Fitting name for a traitor.]]²* TheMole: [[spoiler:He works for the monster's side after being offered eternal life in exchange for delivering the builder to them. It goes into DoubleAgent territory when he joins the builder to infiltrate the enemy camp]].²²!!King²The King of Moonbrooke.²----²* CloningBlues: He seems somewhat disappointed when he realizes [[spoiler:that he's not the "real" King of Moonbrooke]] but he still gives all he has to break the siege.²* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler: He isn't the real King of Moonbrooke, just the illusionary clone of him.]]²* TheGoodKing: He's a classic fantasy King following the footsteps of his namesake, the King of Moonbrooke from ''Videogame/DragonQuestII''.²* IJustWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: He asks the builder what ever happened to [[spoiler:the Princess of Moonbrooke back in the real world]] and is quite happy to hear that [[spoiler:she is, so far as the Builder knows, living a relatively happy life and seems to have recovered from the tragedy that befell the true Moonbrooke.]]²* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: While he's a little frustrated at first that his throne room is going to be transformed into barracks and then a workshop, he quickly comes around and becomes the Builder's fiercest supporter. [[spoiler:This is largely because the ringing of the Builder's Bell begins to awaken him to the knowledge of who - and ''what'' - he truly is.]]²* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Eventually he helps out building [[spoiler:the Kazapple Cannon.]] He also spends all his time reading up on the castle's history and trying to come up with new weapons and strategies to break the siege.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Final Voyage]]²!Malhalla²A "promised land" for monsters that are a part of the Children of Hargon.²----²* MonsterAllies: Every living creature in Malhalla is a monster of some sorts. [[spoiler:By the events of the chapter's closure, all of them will be on good terms with the Builder]]²* YouHaveResearchedBreathing: True to the teaching of Hargon, they all believe in destruction over creation. [[spoiler:However, thanks to the influence of the Builder and the motivation of surviving TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, they gradually learn to build while putting their skills of destruction to good use to clear away the earth under the Ark to make room for building the underside.]]²²!!Arisplotle²A metal slime you rescue when you arrive.²----²* {{Deconstruction}}: Notable for deconstructing the very foundations of Hargon's teachings and comes to the conclusion that creation and destruction are two sides of the same coin.²* LovableCoward: Averted HARD. Not only is he extremely brave for a monster species known for turning tail at the first sign of peril, he's also one of the quickest to warm up to the Builder and is the only monster who stays with you the entire time you're outside home base. The only time he's truly afraid is, understandably, when he's trapped on a floating rock surrounded by Malroth's arms aggressively clawing down on all the surrounding land- leaving the poor slime with no clear path.²* MeaningfulName: His name is a pun on Aristotle, and he's [[HiddenDepths pretty good at philosophizing.]]²* MetalSlime: Natch.²* MoralityPet: Becomes one to the other monsters when they question the Builder's goals of building an Ark and finding Malroth.²²!!Griswold²The skeleton general of the Immortal Corps.²* DemBones: Griswold is a Hargonaut, one of the three types of skeleton knights.²* DisneyDeath: Falls into the void early on, but is later revealed to have survived while you're rounding up his squad of Chasmonauts.²²!![=N04H=]²A very old Killing Machine you repair back to life.²²* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:After the completion of the Ark, [=N04H=]'s body shuts down. In his dying breath, he asks the builder to pull a MercyKill on him and use his heart to power the Buggy Buggy and upgrade it to its final stage, transferring his essence into the machine just like what happened to Goldirox and the gold bar all the way back in Khrumbul-Dun.]]²* LeetLingo: The way [=N04H=]'s name is formatted.²* SpinAttack: To attack, [=N04H=] swings his blade while spinning his own body- attacking everything surrounding him.²²!!Gremville²A gremlin found in a hole.²²* BigEater: Takes a liking to eating and even insists the Builder make a small kitchen on the Ark.²* RememberedICouldFly: Forgot he could fly out of a pit due to panic.²²!!Hellen²The priestess in charge of the Haven of Hargon.²²* KissedKeepsake: Post-game, she has a banter in which she fangirls over Malroth (her god) having shaken her hand, saying that she will never wash it again.²* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: As a high-ranking member of the Children of Hargon, she is known as Hellen the Horrible (a {{Pun}} on the name Helen and {{Hell}}). {{Subverted}} as she later leaves the Children of Hargon to follow the Builder instead.²²!!Drakson²A Dracky encountered en route to the Court of Chaos.²²!!Zebadee²The priest in charge of the Court of Chaos.²²* {{Hypocrite}}: Lampshaded by Arisplotle. He is a devout believer of Hargon's views of destruction, but throws a fit when the builder smashes in a wall of one of Hargon's churches.²* LampshadeHanging: He describes the Ark, a ''spaceship'' in a medieval fantasy setting as "from another world."²²!!Adamn²An Archdemon and Grand Inquisitor of the Children of Hargon.²²* GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger: Does this a few times during dialogue.²* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Adamn the Abominable (Adam plus "damn"), a sufficiently sinister name for the Grand Inquisitor of a ReligionOfEvil. {{Subverted}} as he also joins the Builder's cause.²* ProngsOfPoseidon: As with the hostile Archdemon encountered throughout the game, Adamn wields a trident.²²!!Captain Whitebones²The skeleton captain who you first speak to at the start of the game.²²* BookEnds: He was captain of the slave ship you were on in the beginning, and he is needed to be the captain of the Ark in the end of the main campaign.²* DemBones: Captain Whitebones is a Deadnaut.²* HeelFaceTurn: At the beginning of the game while commanding his own ship, he... doesn't seem to be on friendly terms with the player because they're a builder. Once the player regroups with him in Malhalla at the suggestion of the other monsters, he buries the hatchet and even lets the player take the Hargon banner on his ship to place on the Ark.²* JustifiedTutorial: He is in charge of it, and you learn most of the basics by following the instructions layed out.²* RunningGag: Loves to give you raw kelp for you to eat because he is convinced that Builders love it. Taken UpToEleven in the epilogue where he gives you a whopping 30 pieces at once.²²----²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Children of Hargon]]²The vile cult that worships destruction. Despite their defeat on the mainland, they still control the island chain Dragon Quest Builders 2 takes place on. [[spoiler:...at least, it appears that way.]]²²!!The Brainy Badboon²A massive badboon who reigns over Furrowfield.²----²* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: The Brainy Badboon absolutely towers over everyone, even other monsters.²* BananaPeel: [[spoiler:During the boss battle against him, he drops massive banana peels from his snacks. Putting them in his path is the key to defeating him.]]²* BossSubtitles: The Pestilential Primate.²* TacticalSuicideBoss: His attack would be unstoppable, except [[spoiler:he tosses giant banana peels everywhere, which he will slip on if placed in his path]].²* VisualPun: As Pastor Al's superior in the cult, he is the Primate of Furrowfield.²* WalkingWasteland: His power is what [[spoiler:made the Spoilspores that cover Furrowfield, and corrupted the Deitree.]]²²!!Madusa²A giant snake monster that reigns over Khrumbul-Dun.²----²* BossSubtitles: The Stony-eyed source of subterranean-suffering.²* GreenEyedMonster: Hates things that are more beautiful/shiny than her, [[spoiler: as Babs finds out the hard way]].²* LogicalWeakness: Since she petrifies things by using EyeBeams, reflecting them at her will turn her to solid stone temporarily.²²!!Atlas²A ridiculously huge cyclops that leads the monsters in Moonbrooke.²----²* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Seriously, he's ginormous. The player doesn't even reach up to his ankle.²* BossSubtitles: The Battle Hardened Behemoth.²* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Downplayed. Normally Atlas is represented by an [[PaletteSwap orange Gigantes]], but his model in particular has some noticeable scarring.²²!!Hargon²The founder of the Children of Hargon.²----²* CatchPhrase: "Man, Monster or God, [[YouCantFightFate no one can escape their fate.]]"²* DarkerAndEdgier: Zizagged. Whereas the Dragonlord's modus operandi was TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, Hargon isn't a preternaturally powerful dragon, thus he had to stick to more conventional means of sowing terror. "Conventional means" such as rounding up people, forcing them to destroy or defile iconography of their faith, and have them murdered in front of the rest if they refuse.²* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler: This isn't a case of the first ''Builders'' wherein the Dragonlord was able to pull a fast one, ''Dragon Quest II'' ended as it was meant to and Hargon was cut down. [[VengefulGhost This doesn't stop him.]]]]²* TheGhost: Doesn't appear for most of the story. [[spoiler: Also very, very [[DeadAllAlong literal.]]]]²* MasterOfIllusion: Formerly a mere InformedAttribute of the high priest, [[spoiler: it takes center stage and gets cranked UpToEleven here. The world you awaken in? All of it is a tactile illusion. Hargon's powers are so absurd that the people and monsters he conjures up have self-awareness and individual wills, even-- that is, assuming he doesn't just make them [=NPCs=] like in the illusory Middenhall Castle.]]²* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:Hargon created the Land of Illusion and Malhalla, going against his doctrine of destruction. Furthermore, it is suggested by Malroth that Hargon's reason for wanting to destroy the world was that he wanted to recreate it in his image, ie. to build. In his dying breath, he even says that he will consider what Malroth said about their similarity if Malroth and the Builder are able to defeat the Master of Destruction.]]²* UnintentionalBackupPlan: Zigzagged. [[spoiler: Namely, the illusory world ''was'' always a backup plan, but it was meant to lure in the Scions of Erdrick, and the three of them bypassed it altogether. However, Hargon is able to still make use of it, by transposing his VengefulGhost and the remnants of Malroth there, wait for the Scions' time to have passed, and then bring in someone who can foster Malroth's destructive urges until the EvilGod is restored. In this way, he was put in the perfect position to manifest the Master of Destruction in a way that the real world could never see coming and would never be aware of until it was entirely too late, all outside of the original plan.]]²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Angler's Isle]]²A remote island that's really good for fishing. Avaliable in the Aquarium Pack [=DLC=].²²!!Gillian²A fisherwoman who fled the Children of Hargon to Angler's Isle so she can fish in peace.²* DefectorFromDecadence: Her family are prestigious members of the Children of Hargon.²* {{Expy}}: Of [[ActionGirl Barbella]] from VideoGame/DragonQuestBuilders, except this time instead of a WrenchWench, she's a fisherwoman. She even uses the exact same model. Post-game she remarks that "inventing traps" somehow sounds awfully familiar...²* MeaningfulName: [[DontExplainTheJoke Fish gills.]]²²!!Finn²A fisherman that came along with Gillian and went out on the sea to find an amazing fish for her.²* MeaningfulName: [[DontExplainTheJoke Fish fins.]]²* PosthumousCharacter: It's believed he drowned prior to the Builder arriving at the island. This belief seems to be confirmed when his [[DeadHatShot helmet washes up on shore]]. [[SubvertedTrope However...]]²* ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated: ...it turns out he was just trapped in an undersea cavern.²* UncannyValley: He has the same muscular "Thug" model as all the other miners form Krumbul-Dun. However, when you first meet him he's lost his mask and instead of getting a fitingly masculine face to match the body he was a boyish head on a hypermuscular body, and he's also taller than the builder which makes his boyish face even more jarring.²²[[/folder]]
