The Demon Spear is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. The weapon is notable for having a chance to instantly slay any non-boss target upon contact. Despite its name, it is not a cursed item.

The spear is a reward for defeating Gracos V in both versions of the game, but if he is not defeated by the reappearance of Estard then it will be lost. In the 3DS version, the spear is dropped by Gracolytes at a rate of 1/128 and is also the reward for the Ocean's Overlord traveller's tablet.
