Heal is a recurring spell in the Dragon Quest series. As its name suggests, it functions to restore the Hit Points of the character it is used on. As the seminal spell of the franchise, Heal is almost always the first spell learned by the Hero/Heroine in their adventure. It is related to the more powerful spells Midheal, Moreheal, Multiheal, Fullheal, and Omniheal.

Heal and its variations are commonly learned by Priests and the game's Hero.

Certain monsters (e.g. a healslime) can also know this spell, with more powerful palette swaps knowing improved versions of the spell.


Dragon Quest I[edit]

Heal is learned by the Hero at Level 3. In the original version it will restore 10~17 HP for 4 MP, and 25~30 for 3 MP in the remakes.

Dragon Quest II[edit]

The Prince of Cannock knows the spell upon being recruited. It restores 23~42 hit points in the original, and 25~30 in the remakes. Both versions cost 3 MP.

Dragon Quest III[edit]

Heal restores 30~40 HP for 3 MP, and is learned by the following characters:

Name Level
Hero 4
Priest 2
Sage 2

Heal is automatically learned by one who is a Priest from the beginning, but those who become a Priest or Sage in the Alltrades Abbey need to advance one Level to learn it. In the mobile port, this is changed so that anyone who becomes a Priest or Sage automatically knows the spell at level 1.

The Hero can learn it much sooner for use in battle in the NES Version if a glitch is exploited in Ruida's Tavern where too many companions are registered, though it will prevent The Hero from being able to learn it for use on the world map.

The spell can cause damage to Zoma after the Sphere of Light is used on him.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The basic heal spell is known by Kiryl and Meena at level 1. Healie and Laurel also know the spell. It costs 2 MP to cast and Heals 30~40 HP (unless it heals the target completely) to party members.

Dragon Quest IV is the installment that finalized the MP cost and HP range of the spell, with no subsequent game deviating from this new standard.
