Fizzle is a recurring spell in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the original game, it is a spell that attempts to seal the spells of the target/targets, preventing them from casting magic.

Interestingly, Fizzle does not prevent those afflicted from being able to speak. This can be seen during the in-battle Party chat seen in the PSX version of VII.
