The fire claw is a recurring set of claws in the Dragon Quest franchise. It is a mid-level weapon designed for martial artists and barehanded brawlers. When used as a tool in battle, it singes the enemy with a wave of fire.


Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The fire claw has an attack bonus of +60 and casts Sizzle on one enemy when used in battle. It can only be wielded by Alena and Psaro. It is found behind the stairs at Femiscyra.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The fire claw has an attack bonus of +53 and only casts Sizz on a group of enemies when used in battle. The cremating claws' real appeal is that damage will be multiplied by 1.5 when attacking an enemy with no resistance to sizz/fire breath, allowing the weapon to slash above it's weight class into the end-game. It can only be wielded by Debora and monster companions that can use claws. It can be sold for 3,525 gold and bought for 4,700 gold at Battenburg and Gotha.

Carver, Amos, and all slime allies except Goowain can equip it.When used as an item in battle, the fire claw acts as a free use of the Frizzle spell. Tiger jackals drop it 1/128 of the time and Jamirus has a 1/8 chance of dropping it. They cannot be bought, only sold for 4,275 gold. One is found on the third floor of Murdaw's Keep and another on the sixth floor of the Pillar of Pegasus.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The fire claws have an attack bonus of +53, a style bonus of +21, and identical special effects as seen in VI. It can only be equipped by Ruff. It can be purchased from various shops for 7,700 gold and sold for 3,850 gold. Fire claws can also be won as a prize from the Lucky Panel at the Casino.
