Fuddle

From Dragon Quest Wiki
(Redirected from Medapani)

Fuddle is a recurring debilitating spell in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest III. It has a 100% chance to confuse a group of enemies, barring resistance, and costs 5 mp in all appearances. It is the diminutive form of Kafuddle and is often learned by Magi.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest II[edit]

Fuddle itself does not appear in II per se, but the confusion status effect is present as one of the results of Hocus Pocus.

Dragon Quest III[edit]

Fuddle debuts as a proper spell in III, with Magi and Sages learning it at level 27. The spell targets only a single enemy, somewhat limiting its usefulness compared to Snooze and Dazzle. If a party member is afflicted by the spell, they can be snapped out of it by striking them; this safety feature is limited to III, however.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Fuddle is learned by Borya at level 30, and has the same range as before. The spell is more useful than in III, as only a handful of enemies have an immunity - even into the final areas and bonus dungeon.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

Fuddle's range has increased to affect a group of enemies now, greatly improving the spell's usability all the way to the end game.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

Fuddle is learned by Ashlynn at level 18. Other characters can learn it by advancing to rank 4 of the Mage vocation.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

Fuddle is very scarce in the seventh game, only being learned by reaching rank 6 of the goodybag vocation.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

Jessica learns this spell after investing 26 points into her "Sex Appeal" skill and costs 5 mp. The spell, along with the newly added Kafuddle, is the most reliable status ailment in the post-game, where nearly every monster is immune to Dazzle and Kasnooze.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

Fuddle is learned by mages at level 19 and armamentalists at level 20. It costs 5 MP to cast with a base accuracy of 50%, and will become more accurate once the caster's magical might surpasses 50. Once the value reaches 999, the spell will be accurate 100% barring enemy resistance.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

Veronica will learn Fuddle at level 19.

Dragon Quest Monsters[edit]

Called PanicAll in this game, it requires the monster to reach level 12 with 56 MP and 49 intelligence. It is naturally learned by the Biguana, DuckKite, JewelBag, MadGoose and Voodoll, among others.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2[edit]

PanicAll now requires 89 intelligence to learn. It is naturally learned by the CragDevil, MimeSlime and PutreFish. It is no longer naturally learned by the MadGoose.
