Kacrackle Slash

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Kacrackle Slash is a recurring skill in the Dragon Quest series that allows practitioner to enchant their weapon with the power of ice for a single attack. The unusual naming compared to other elemental slashes would see that this skill would be replaced in side games by the thematically identical Frost Slash in the first Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker game.
