How does it differ from the character name? In this article, we will answer all of these questions and help you understand how the Dragon’s Dogma 2 Moniker works.

The Moniker in Dragon’s Dogma 2 refers to your character’s nickname or alternative name. This is done to stop the player from showing up online with an extremely crude or offensive name. Capcom, the developers of the game, put this system in place as a form of parental control to prevent younger or sensitive players from being exposed to inappropriate words and player names. 

Players can manually input their name in the character creation screen. However, they can only choose a Moniker from a predetermined list of nicknames. For example, you can name your character “Bojack Horseman”, but in the Moniker section, you will have to pick a different name, like Sagitarrius or Lancelot, which other people will see when you play with them online.

Can You Add or Change Your Moniker in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

No, you cannot add or change your Moniker in Dragon’s Dogma 2. The game will unfortunately not allow you to add any Monikers of your own, regardless of how PG-friendly it is. Additionally, there does not seem to be any way to change the Moniker either. However, this may change as the original Dragon’s Dogma allowed the player to change their Moniker using the Secret of Metamorphosis and Art of Metamorphosis items. We will likely learn more about this feature once the game is released. 

Can You Give Your Pawns a Moniker in Dragon's Dogma 2?

Yes, you can give your Pawns a Moniker in Dragon’s Dogma 2, just like how you can with your main character. You will have to follow the same procedure of choosing your Pawn’s name from a predetermined list. We can also deduce that you will be able to use your Pawns online because of this requirement. 

That wraps up this discussion about everything you need to know about Dragon’s Dogma 2 Monikers. While it can feel a bit disappointing to not be able to name your character whatever you want and have it displayed to your friends, we can also understand Capcom’s point of view here. Given the hype of the game, we can expect players from all age ranges to jump into the world of Dragon’s Dogma 2.

We believe that Capcom expected this and that’s why implemented this system in the first place. However, players will still be able to customize almost every aspect of their character, including their names. These names will be displayed to you exclusively, but for the rest of the world, only your Moniker will appear in front of them.
