The Sands of Time (originally localized in the English release of Dragon Quest IV & Dragon Quest VII as Sandglass of Regression and Time Sand respectively) is an special item in the Dragon Quest series. Depicted as a heart-shaped hourglass filled with sand, it resets the battle to the beginning and allows the player to start over the encounter.


Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The Sands of Time can be found in the Cascade Cave, after the Karstaway stone is used to drain the grotto.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The Sands of Time is a reward for completing the Nadiria T'n'T board.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

You can obtain the Sands of Time by showing 50 mini medals to the king at Medford Manor.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The chronic clumps of sand were used by The Time Being in conjunction with Pomposo's clocktower to freeze the region of El Ciclo in a never-ending loop. The sands are the player's reward for freeing the town.
