Black Breath

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Black Breath is a Darkness-elemental breath attack that engulfs foes in pitch black exhalations, with the chance to seal their spells for several turns.


Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince[edit]

Black Breath costs 22 MP and deals 100~180 damage to all enemies with a chance to Fizzle their spells for 4~7 turns. It is learned through the Agent Provocateur, Bad Breather, Barbarus, Blighter, Blow Hard, Cool Customer, Dark Horse, Deep Breather, Hater, and Zam Virtuoso talents.

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

Black Breath can be learned by shadows at level 20, silhouettes at level 22, and dragon zombies at level 26. It costs 27 MP to use and inflicts moderate Zam-type breath damage on any enemies in a straight line of three squares in front of the user. It can also be taught to any unit by using an ability scroll. The skill was originally known as Dark Breath but was renamed to Black Breath in a January 2023 update in order to avoid confusion with the new Dark Breath skill.
