Muster Strength is an ability in the Dragon Quest series that first appeared in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen as an enemy-exclusive ability before players could start using it themselves in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride.
It builds up energy for the next attack, dealing 200%~250% damage on their next attack. This attack can still miss the target, however, unlike the stronger version of this skill called Focus Strength (note this doesn't apply to Dragon Quest V, where the two abilities are identical aside from their name).
Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride
Muster Strength is used by monster companions such as the Golem.

Muster Strength is learned by Kingsley at Level 5. Other characters can obtain it by advancing to rank 2 of the Merchant vocation.

It can be learned by reaching rank 5 in the Thief vocation, rank 4 in the Rockbomb vocation, and rank 2 in the Golem vocation.
