Matataki Village is a location in Dark Cloud. It is the second main area that Toan encounters, and is located to the south of Norune Village. The Wise Owl Forest is the Dungeon associated with the area. Goro will join the party after defeating the Killer Snake.
Matataki Village is the home of 13 residents. They are all hunters, and wear animal skins under their clothing. Treant, the fairy tree, is the guardian of Matataki Village and looks after the villagers.
As soon as Toan arrives in Matataki Village, he is spotted by Goro. Toan follows Goro to his treehouse where he is challenged to a Duel because Goro believes that Toan was the one who destroyed the village. After winning the duel, Toan receives the Hunter's Earrings, an item that allows him to communicate to the village guardian.
Later, Toan returns to give Goro the Bone Pendant that he received after a duel with the Killer Snake. Goro immediately realizes that it belonged to his father, Fudoh. After a brief talk between Goro and his fathers spirit, Goro joins the party.
