The spell Woosh is a recurring offensive wind spell in the Dragon Quest series. It causes a small whirlwind to rip into a group of enemies for around 8~24 damage in most appearances.
Woosh originally debuted in Dragon Quest II where it was learned by the Princess of Moonbrooke. Since then, it is typically learned by Priests and similarly pious characters and tends to be one of the only offensive spells they learn. It is related to the stronger spells Swoosh, Kaswoosh, and Kaswooshle.
