Decelerate is a recurring spell in the Dragon Quest Series which was first introduced in Dragon Quest Monsters before later being brought over into the main series with Dragon Quest IX. It decreases one enemy's agility by one level with 50% accuracy, before spell resistance and Magical might are applied.
Decelerate is learned by armamentalists at level 10. It costs 3 mp to cast, and will increase in accuracy once the caster's magical might reaches 50. When the value reaches 499, the spell becomes 100% accurate barring monster resistance. The affects of the spell last for 7~10 turns.
