Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

Metal Slash is a sword technique that both the the Hero and Angelo can learn. It requires 30 skill points by the Hero, and 22 skill points by Angelo.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

This ability is learned with 13 skill points invested into the Sword skill.

If the enemy being attacked is not a metal enemy, then this ability is functionally equivalent to a normal attack. Otherwise, the enemy in question takes 1 or 2 damage (provided that no critical hit is dealt and the metal enemy does not evade the attack).

If a Falcon blade or an Über falcon blade is equipped, then the ability is performed twice in succession, thus dealing at most 4 damage (assuming no critical hits).
