Kadonk is a recurring spell in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in the Joker sub series of the Monsters spin off games. When cast, it reduces the target's HP by a fraction of their current health. Resistance to this spell is based on accuracy, similar to Dazzle and Sap.
Dragon Quest X
Kadonk makes its main series debut as an enemy-exclusive spell used by some bosses. It costs 8 MP to cast and, much like Donk, will deal 75% of a character's maximum HP as damage and has a wider area of effect.
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2
Kadonk costs 32 MP to cast. It affects all enemies on screen, and damage inflicted is 1/6th of their current HP. It can be learned from:
- Cursader (60 points)
- Exorsus (70 points)
- Wormonger (85 points)
- Zenith Dragon (38 points)
- Wildcard (100 points)
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3
Kadonk's damage calculation is the same, but now only targets one foe. MP cost has been reduced to 8.
Dragon Quest Treasures
Kadonk can be learned by Umbras, Emerald king slimes, and Wight kings at level 18. It costs 10 MP to cast and creates a powerful gravity well centered around a single enemy, dealing moderate gravitational magic damage to any enemies caught within it.
Dragon Quest Tact
Kadonk can be learned by Wildcard at level 38 and costs 146 MP to use. It inflicts major typeless spell damage to all enemies in a 3x3 square in front of it with a high chance of binding them, too. Upgrading the spell increases its damage and reduces the amount of MP it costs to cast.
