C-c-cold Breath

From Dragon Quest Wiki

C-c-cold Breath is recurring breath attack in the Dragon Quest series.

It emits a f-f-frightfully c-c-cold breath attack that hits all enemies for 210~230 damage in most appearances unless noted otherwise below.


Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

In the English remakes of the game, the text states that C-c-cold Breath is used, but it is actually Freezing Blizzard. It can be used by Zoma, baramonsters, metal chimaeras, and Xenlon, and deals 100~139 ice damage to the entire party.

Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen[edit]

C-c-cold Breath makes its debut as an attack used by Psaro the Manslayer's final form. It deals between 100~140 ice damage to the entire party. In the original NES version of Dragon Warrior IV, the in-game text states that Psaro "emits a gleaming, icy gust of wind".

  • During Chapter 6 in remake versions of the game, there are two variations of the breath and it can also be used by Foo Yung and the final boss in his last form. The version used by the final boss is much stronger, dealing 210~230 damage to the entire party. When the Psaro the Manslayer and final boss use the breath, it is emitted from both of their mouths. However, starting with the Nintendo DS version, Psaro and Foo Yung use the animation and text for Freezing Blizzard instead.
