From Dragon Quest Wiki

Craggle is a powerful Earth-element spell that sets a magic circle below enemies, damaging foes with massive bursts of rock formations for a set number of turns.

Localization history[edit]

ジバリカ and the related spells were first translated into English in 2017 with Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End, where it were referred to as Boulderbringer, with the weaker spell being known as Rubblerouser and the superior spells being Mountainmover and Ridgeraiser respectively. This naming convention continued into Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, but would be switched out for the series standard ka- and -le prefix and suffix scheme in Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince in 2023 when ジバリカ was localized as Craggle.

As there are two concurrent sets of names for the same line of spells, this article will cover the instances in which the Craggle name is used over Boulderbringer and for games that have not been translated.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

Craggle can be learned by Rangers at level 23 and Thieves at level 30, costing 8 MP to cast. It creates a circle on the ground that erupts after 10 seconds have passed, dealing 52~68 earth-element damage to all enemies in the area of effect. The damage is fixed and is not affected by the caster's magical might.

  • In the Offline version of the game, Craggle can also be learned by Duston at level 25. Due to the change in battle system, Craggle will activate at the end of the next turn after it is cast, dealing 52~68 earth-element damage to all enemies.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca's Marvelous Mysterious Key[edit]

Craggle costs 14 MP and will deal 38〜42 Earth damage to all enemies at the start of the next turn cycle. Once the monster's wisdom reaches 699, it will deal 142~157 damage.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3[edit]

The spell has the same parameters as in the previous game.

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince[edit]

Craggle costs 12 MP and is learned through the Bombshell, Crag Afficionado, Crag Virtuoso, Rockin’ Roller, and Stony Slasher talents. It has a base power of 50 and once the monster's wisdom reaches 699 it will deal an average of 160 damage.

Dragon Quest Treasures[edit]

Craggle refers to ジバリーナ, the third-tier earth spell in this game due to an oversight. It can be learned by Marble slimes, Ham shamwitches, Wight princes, and Shiny draglings at level 18, automatically upgrading from Crag. It costs 9 MP to cast and creates a small magic circle that will deal earth-element magic damage to any enemies that enter it after a short amount of time passes. The spell will automatically upgrade to Craggle at level 33.

Dragon Quest Walk[edit]

Craggle can be learned by Rangers at level 15 and can also be learned by equipping certain weapons such as the Sword breaker. It costs 12 MP to cast and will continuously inflict Rubblerouser-type spell damage to a single enemy for three turns.


  • The spell is erroneously known as Kacrag in Treasures despite only being a second-level spell, while the third-level spell is known as Craggle. Due to the aforementioned use of Boulderbringer in certain titles, ジバリカ has the distinction of being the one of two spell to have three English names alongside ジバリーナ
