Whack (previously Beat) is a recurring spell in the Dragon Quest series. It instantly reduces the target's HP to 0, causing instant death.
Though a potent spell, Whack and its advanced forms tend to rarely work. It is typically learned by Priests and other practitioners of curative arts, likely to balance out the power of life with a little power of death.
Kiryl learns Whack at level 18.
Debora learns this move, but only in the DS remake.
Angelo learns Whack at level 17.
Whack is learned by priests at level 20.
- In an interview with Nintendo Power magazine, series creator Yuji Horii noted that the AI in Dragon Quest IV was built such that in its original version, Kiryl's algorithms would always conclude Whack (then Beat) and the character would end up casting it turn after turn, simply because it "could not get over the power of the spell." The problem was halfway corrected in the balance-adjusted PS2 remake, except that he almost never cast Whack.
