Giga Drain Magic

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Giga Drain Magic is the improved version of the more common Drain Magic, first appearing in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Professional in 2011. Depending on the title, it will either siphon significantly more MP from a single target or leech off of several targets at once.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

G.D.M is reserved for boss-monsters and will drain between 0~120 MP from a single target four times in a row, leading to an unwieldy but very dangerous weapon against casters.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

Booga uses the power of the green orb to cast the spell, with Mordegon & Sheer Decadence having access to it naturally. The effect will vary depending on if the game is played in 3D or 2D: In 3D it is classified as a skill and thus cannot be Bounced back, draining 6~8 MP eight times in a row from random targets, and in 2D it drains 10~15 from every party member.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Professional[edit]

The spell costs half of the caster's current MP and is cast four times, with the player selecting the first target but the others being randomly targeted. Each victim is drained of 25% of it's maximum MP, with a range of 5~10 MP layered on top of that.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland 3D[edit]

Giga Drain Magic has the same effect as in Joker 2: Professional.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca's Marvelous Mysterious Key[edit]

Giga Drain Magic has the same effect as in Joker 2: Professional.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3[edit]

It still costs 50% MP for four shots but the spell's effectiveness now depends on the caster's level, being 75% of the monster's level with 5~10 MP added. For example, if a caster is at level 64 then the range for one shot will be 53~58. Additionally any of the four drainings can be reflected back at the caster to no effect, and are subject to going haywire like any other spell.

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince[edit]

Giga Drain Magic functions just as it did in the third Joker game.
