The siren sword is a recurring sword in the Dragon Quest series. It has a 1/4th chance to confuse enemies in battle in all but one appearance and is usually wielded only by women.


The sword has a beautiful curved pink blade, much like a scimitar or shamshir, and has a wavy design similar to a vine on its fuller. The crossguard is golden and is shaped like a crescent moon and is embellished with small blue gemstones while the handle is purple and has a pink heart-shaped gemstone on its pommel. In VII, the siren sword's design stayed mostly the same, but with a few changes, as the lower half of the blade appeared to be grey metal rather than completely pink and the hilt no longer had the heart gem at the pommel.


Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

The siren sword has an attack bonus of +50. If used as a tool in battle, it casts Fuddle but cannot confuse on slashed enemies in any version of the game. It can only be equipped by female Warriors, Thieves, Merchants, and Gadabouts. It's obtained from Sabrina in Portoga after Baramos is defeated, and can also be dropped by Flying flayers at a 1/256 rate.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

The siren sword has an attack bonus of +70. It can be purchased at Lofty Peak for 9,800 gold, and can be wielded by the the Hero, Bianca, Nera, Debora, and Madchen.

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation[edit]

Milly and Ashlynn can equip the siren sword for +70 attack and +51 style, and it can be purchased in Felonia for 9800 gold. The sword retains the 14 fuddle chance, and will trigger with the dragon slash, double-edged slash, flame slash, frenzy, gust slash, hatchet man, kacrackle slash, lightning slash, mercurial thrust, metal slash, multifists (each hit), multislash, & undead undoer skills.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

This baffling blade sometimes causes confusion in enemies.[1]

The siren sword has an attack bonus of +70, a style bonus of +51, and the alluring effect activates on the same skills as in VI. It can only be equipped by Maribel and Aishe. It can be purchased from Vogograd, Buccanham, and the Grand Slum stage of the Immigrant Town for 9,800 gold and sold for 4,900 gold.

Dragon Quest Rivals[edit]

The sword appears as a card in the game.


In its new translation, the sword is named after the Sirens of Greek mythology. Sirens were dangerous female creatures who would lure nearby sailors with their enchanted singing and music in order to shipwreck them on the rocky shores of their islands. Most famously, Sirens appeared in Homer's Odyssey, wherein the hero Odysseus asked his shipmates to tie him to the ship's mast in order to avoid being tempted by their singing. They have been depicted in a variety of different ways, including as bird-women similar to harpies or even been conflated with mermaids in other languages.
