Fuddle Dance

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Fuddle Dance is an ability which attempts to confuse an enemy group. Because the dance costs no MP, it uses a weaker accuracy table that it's spell equivalent, having a range of 50%, 25%, 10%, 0% depending on the target's resistance. It will still keep the afflicted bewildered for 6~9 turns, however.
