The Massacre sword is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest franchise. Despite being very powerful and ability to strike every monster in all but one of it's appearances, it is a Cursed item.


Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen[edit]

The Massacre sword has an Attack bonus of +120, and casts Kasap when used as a tool in battle. It can be equipped by Ragnar McRyan and Torneko Taloon, at the cost of reducing their Defence to 0. The 9th Chosen One can equip it without becoming cursed, and the sword becomes one of his best options prior to obtaining the Pandemonic sword.

It can be found in Porthtrunnel's Inn behind an Ultimate Key door.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

The Massacre sword has an Attack bonus of +120. It can be found in Estark's Labyrinth.

The sword has been upgraded to hit all enemies now, and carries this trait in all subsequent games.

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation[edit]

The massacre sword has an Attack bonus of +95 and Style bonus of +15. It can be purchased in Greedmore Valley for 29,000 gold coins and sold for 21,750 gold coins.

They are also dropped by Tormentaur at a rate of 1/256.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

The Massacre sword has an Attack bonus of +95 and an Style bonus of +15. It can only be used by Kiefer and Aishe.

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

The Massacre sword is an S-rank sword that can be acquired as part of the limited Dragon Quest VI event by clearing the Treasure Trove Guard stages in To the Undersea Treasury. It has an HP bonus of +30, an Attack bonus of +30 and has three slots for Alchemy Effects. But since it's a cursed equipment, it has an Defense cost of -40.
