Claw Slash is a recurring skill in the Dragon Quest series. It is an enemy-only attack in various games where the monster rips and tears into a character with their razor-sharp claws or talons, dealing 125% damage compared to a normal attack.
Claw Slash can be used by Manguinis, Drakularges, King crabs, Drakulards, Alphyns, Drakulords, Grand Lizzier, Greygnarl during the first battle against him, Barbarus, Nemean, and both Mortamor's left and right claws.
Claw Slash can be used by various monsters, including Platypunks, Drooling ghouls, Gryphons, and Jamirus. Instead of dealing a higher amount of damage to a single enemy, it delivers two swipes in quick succession.
Claw Slash can be used by Manticores and Franticores. The Slayer of the Sands and its crustacean cousins have a variant that launches six attacks randomly at the entire party, dealing 50% damage per hit.
Claw Slash is an enemy-only skill that can be used by certain monsters in high-level stages and boss battles. It costs 20 MP to use and inflicts 195% potency physical damage to a single enemy.
