Flame Slash is a recurring skill in the Dragon Quest series. It imbues a melee strike with the power of flames, altering the damage dealt by the target's tolerance of the element.

Although not directly available to players, Flame Slash is used by the desert dwelling Axolhotl. Use of the Armamentalist's Fire Fource skill can mimic the technique.
