Spell List

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Note: This list is not yet complete. While most of the spells found in Dragon Quest are included below, a few remain to be added to this list, including their English localization names.

This is a list for the various spells appearing in the Dragon Quest games released by Enix and Square Enix. For more detail on any given spell, please refer to its specific page. Where N/A is listed, that spell did not appear during the time of Enix of America.

In official documentation such as guidebooks and websites, spells are broadly classified into four groups: offensive, recovery, support, and field.

  • Offensive magic is dedicated to inflicting damage upon enemies using a variety of elemental themed spells. Enemies can be resistant, fully immune, or vulnerable to these elements. Prior to the eighth game, each spell had a fixed range of damage that was only altered by the enemy's tolerance, but this has since changed so that spells can increase in power as the appropriate stat goes up in value.
  • Recovery magic contains spells that either restore a character's HP, revive them from death, or resolve a status ailment. Most of these spells can be used outside of the battle screen.
  • Support magic includes spells that increase the party's capabilities, damped the enemy's, or inflict status ailments such as a magical trance or being lost in a swarm of illusions. The latter two types work off of enemy resistances, with some monsters being immune to a given ailment while others are totally vulnerable and will be hit with the spell every time it is cast. Party augmenting spells will always work, provided the caster is not fizzled or the recipient protected by bounce.
  • Field magic offers movement spells that are exclusive to the world map screen, towns, and dungeons, and produce a variety of effects that facilitate the player's ability to explore their surroundings. This can range from producing an aura to keep weaker enemies away, teleporting outside of a dungeon, or warping time and space to turn night into day.
