Focus Strength

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Focus Strength is an ability in the Dragon Quest series.

The user takes a deep breath to build power for the next attack, dealing 200%~250% damage on their next attack. Unlike Muster Strength, the attack is guaranteed to hit its target (note the latter effect only applies to Dragon Quest VI and VII, in Dragon Quest V the ability is exactly the same as Muster Strength).

Note that in the old localization for VII, this ability was given the name of "PsycheUp", however it is an entirely different ability from Psyche Up {{VIII, IX, Smash Ultimate etc.) and PsycheUp in (Monsters).


Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

Focus Strength is used by monster companions such as Saber, as well as the enemy Spiked hare.
