Propeller Blade

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Propeller Blade is a recurring technique in the Dragon Quest series. It strikes an enemy twice per round with blades of wind from the wielder's claws.


Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King 3DS[edit]

In the Nintendo 3DS version, Propeller Blade can be learned by Morrie by investing 9 skill points into his Claw skill and costs no MP to use. It deals extra damage to a single enemy based on his level. Unlike other games in the series, the extra damage is not Woosh-elemental.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

This ability is learned with 3 skill points allocated into Claw skill. Second blow damage is calculated as ((Level + 4) + / - 20%) and deals wind-elemental damage.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Propeller Blade can be learned by Martial Artists, Thieves, Monster Mashers, and Rangers by allocating 3 skill points into their Claw skill, and costs 3 MP to use. It is a two-stage attack that deals twice the damage of a normal attack on the first, then a second strike that deals a fixed amount of damage.

  • In the Offline version of the game, the skill can be learned by the main character in the aforementioned vocations and Mjoll through the Claws panel in their character builders for one skill point. The first blow of the attack deals twice the damage of a normal attack, while the second blow's damage is now calculated as ((Level + 5) x 0.8~1.0). The damage can be increased further with skill-up panels in the character builder.

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

Jade and Rab unlock the skill through the Claws panel on their character builders for 4 points. It costs 2 MP to use, and the second blow is wind damage equal to the user's level.
