The beast claws are a recurring set of claws in the Dragon Quest series. They are a powerful, high-level weapon designed for martial artists and other brawlers. Originally plain can-openers with no special traits, they now inflict more damage to creatures in the Beast family as of the ninth game.


Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation remake[edit]

The beast claws have an attack bonus of +95 and can only be equipped by Martial Artists and Thieves. They are the strongest set of claws in the game and only appear in remake versions. The beast claws can be found in Theddon underneath the cross, but only after receiving the first riddle from the riddle master in Cloudsgate Citadel. They can be sold for 412 gold, but it is not recommended to do so as there is only one set in the game. Martial artists can equip the more powerful Destructiball, but doing so will remove their ability to deal Critical Hits, and by the time the player obtains the claws their rate will easily be over 1/6th. Players who prefer to gamble on decisive blows arm their artists with the claws instead, and leave the wrecking ball to the other vocations.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

The beast claws have an attack bonus of +95 and a style bonus of +25. They can only be equipped by Ruff and are dropped by Gnuriels at a rate of 1/128. They can be sold for 275 gold.

'Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King 3DS[edit]

The beast claw has an attack bonus of +81 and inflicts 1.3 times damage on members of the Beast family. It only appear in the 3DS version and can be equipped by Morrie. The beast claw is dropped by Sir Leopold. It can be upgraded into the beast talon by combining it with an ethereal stone in the Alchemy Pot.
