Zaboera, who is cornered, turns into a Superior Being Zombie, complicating things for the heroes in "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" Episode 77.

This new form of Zaboera makes his body impenetrable. Even the mighty Lon Beruk's sword is unable to cut through it.

Just when it appears the tables have turned in the ongoing battle of Loroi Valley, Nova has decided to fight against Zaboera's zombie form. "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" Episode 77 is titled "The Other Hero."

The last episode showed Dai and his friends entering Vearn Palace. Dai expressed his gratitude to his master, Avan, for helping them fight the dangerous battle.

He also thanked Avan for helping him understand how power was not everything. Avan replied that being powerless can be an obstacle but power that was driven by malice was a no-no. He added Dai and others should focus on knowledge and strength of heart.

Meanwhile, Hyunckel took it upon himself to protect Dai and his allies from the monsters.

"Leaving Hyunckel to guard the rear, Dai and his friends enter Vearn Palace. Avan scouts ahead and asks a favor of Leona. Back on the surface, the humans overcome Zaboera's monster horde. The tide of battle is turning, then Zaboera executes a plan," read the official synopsis of "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" Episode 76, according to Crunchyroll.
