Frenzy is an ability in the Dragon Quest series.

The attacker completely loses it and starts on a random (possibly allied) target for double damage.


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

Frenzy is used by monster companions such as the hoodlum. Note: if a target is immune to Whack, then the skill will miss every time. Additionally, the user will never target themselves even if they are the only member of the party currently active. With proper defensive measures set up, a monster using Frenzy can obliterate even the most powerful encounters.
