The Spell of Restoration (復活の呪文, ふっかつのじゅもん, fukkatsu no jumon) is the password system used in the Famicom and Template:MSX versions of Dragon Quest and Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line. As was common for video games of the time, the player's progress was converted into a password to be written down and entered in a later session to pick up where the player left off.
With the advent of battery-backed saves in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, Dragon Quest games stopped using the Spell of Restoration as a save mechanic. The Spell of Restoration later returned in Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age with different functions.
The Spell of Restoration in Dragon Quest consists of 20 characters arranged in a rough 5/7/5/3 haiku pattern.
In the original Famicom version, accepting the Dragonlord's offer at the end of the game results in an instant Game Over and a special Spell of Restoration that, when entered, starts the player off at level 1 with no equipment.
Due its broader scope (three-member party, multiple flagged plot events, and a wider array of equipment), Dragon Quest II employed a larger 52-character Spell of Restoration: Four lines of 3-3-4, followed by a final line of 3-3-4-2.
The system for transferring a character from a clear file of Dragon Quest X Offline to Dragon Quest X proper is named "Spell of Restoration" as a tribute to the password systems of the original two games.
The Spell of Restoration returns in Japanese versions of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age. Instead of saving progress, Spells of Restoration in XI serve more as cheat codes to start new files with boosted stats, items and gold.
In Japanese versions of XI, inputting the Spell of Restoration "Horii Toriyama Sugiyama Dorakuesuto Pepepepe" will take the player to a fully playable recreation of Tantegel Castle's throne room in Dragon Quest. Exiting the throne room will prompt the current console's online store to download a remake of Dragon Quest for free.
