The Blizzard Blade is a weapon in the Dragon Quest series. Originally it would cast Crackle on a group of enemies when used as an item in battle, but later titles have it inclifct bonus damage based on the foe's ice resistance instead.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest III[edit]

The snow sword has an attack bonus of +90. It can only be equipped by the Hero and Warriors.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The blizzard blade has an attack bonus of +105. It can only be purchased in Precaria for the high price of 21,000 gold. It is also restrictive, as only Tuppence and some monster companions can wield it.

The sword's description states that it deals extra damage to those weak to ice, and the bonuses are calculated as thusly: no resistance=150% damage, 20% resistance=130% damage, 67% resistance=115%, and immunity=normal damage calculation. Though the precise bonus damage would be adjusted slightly for each subsequent game, this is the standard ability the blade has in all following appearances.
