Kacrackle Slash is a recurring skill in the Dragon Quest series that allows practitioner to enchant their weapon with the power of ice for a single attack. The unusual naming compared to other elemental slashes would see that this skill would be replaced in side games by the thematically identical Frost Slash in the first Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker game.
Kacrackle Slash deals melee damage modified by the target's resistance to Crack, with the possible modifiers being 130%, 115%, 75%, and 30%. It can be learned by advancing to rank 5 of the Armamentalist vocation.
Kacrackle Slash is functionally identical and learned in the same way as in the previous game. It can also be learned at rank 5 of the Ersatz Estark vocation. In the 3DS version, it is also learned at rank 2 of the Hero vocation.
Kacrackle Slash is used by the icy Brrearthenwarriors as well as killing machines once again and Goresby-Purrvis. Though players cannot directly use it themselves, the Armamentalist's Frost Fource skill is practically identical.
Kacrackle Slash once again remains an enemy-only skill that can be used by Killing machines, Zombie gladiators, and Goresby-Purrvis. A monster companion Killing machine can learn the skill True Kacrackle Slash by investing 40 skill points into their Fencing skill. It costs 7 MP to use and inflicts 250% ice damage to a single enemy.
Kacrackle Slash remains an enemy-only ability, dealing 150% damage to a character.
IceSlash is a normal attack that deals increased damage based on the target's ice resistance. It can be learned by Blizzardy, GreatDrak, Skullgon, TailEater, and Yeti as long as it has 77 HP, 34 MP, 66 Attack, 60 Agility, and 42 Intelligence. IceSlash can also be learned by any monster that knows both the ChargeUp and SnowStorm skills.
IceSlash now requires 76 intelligence to learn. It is naturally learned by the Bubblemon.
Kacrackle Slash appears as an enemy-only skill that, naturally, can be used by Killing machines. This enchants their swords with ice.
Kacrackle Slash can be learned by Armamentalists at level 11 and can also be used by equipping certain swords such as the Okeanos Sword. It costs 3 MP to use and inflicts 130% potency Crack-elemental slashing damage to a single enemy.
Kacrackle Slash can be learned by Killing machine at level 51, as well as Slime knight through Talent Blossoming. It costs 38 MP to use and inflicts 270% Crack-type physical damage to a single enemy. Upgrading the ability increases its damage and reduces the MP it costs to use.
Kacrackle Slash is usable by the Hero via his down special, Command Selection. It delivers a sword slash that will freeze the opponent directly in front of the Hero for a short time. The blade will hit for 17% damage, and the ice itself for 13%: the former will freeze the enemy for several seconds longer than the frost will.
