The cobra claw is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. It is a mid-to-end game weapon can lethally poison its target, with the success of the infliction varying between titles. Monsters will succumb to the poison at the fixed rate, ignoring any resistances save for immunity.


Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +80 and a poisoning rate of 1/6th. It can only be wielded by Alena, Maya, and Psaro and appears in the remakes only. It can be found in the bonus dungeon.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +90 and a much higher poisoning rate of 1/4th, making it an ideal weapon even when alternatives with more attack power are available. It can only be wielded by Debora and several monster companions. It is found in Crocodilopolis and by either a Doom slugger or a Gloom slugger at a rate of 1/32.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +90, style bonus of +29, and a poison rate of 1/6th. It can be wielded by Amos, Goober, Healie, Spot, Kingsley, Curie, Shelley and Mercury. They can be found sometimes after fighting Aggrosculptures at a rate of 1/128 and Merkings at 1/4096, and sold for 26,250 gold coins.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The cobra claw has the exact same stats and bonus abilities as in VI, but may only be equipped by Ruff. It can be purchased at the Sea Dragon for 35,000 gold.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +75 and inflicts 1.3 times damage against monsters of the Demon family. It only appears in the 3DS version of the game and can be equipped by Morrie. It can be purchased in Tryan Gully for 10,000 gold and sold for 5,000 gold. The cobra claw can also be created in the Alchemy Pot and can be upgraded into the King cobra claw by combining it with a Hades' helm. Unfortunately it has no poisonous properties in this iteration.
