From Dragon Quest Wiki

Pressure Pointer is an ability in the Dragon Quest series. It may instantly kill an enemy, using the same resistance rates as whack.


Dragon Quest VI[edit]

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

Learned in the same way as VI and functions identically.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

Pressure Pointer is used by death scorpion.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

This ability is learned with 22 skill points invested into Spear skill. Unlike before, the skill now has a fixed slay rate of 1/8th, meaning the skills can work just fine on metal slimes.
