Sizz (formerly called Firebal) is a spell in the Dragon Quest series. It is the premier offensive spell, introduced in the original Dragon Quest, and is often learned by magi and other practitioners of offensive magic.
Sizz is often depicted as a line of fire that affects a group of enemies, as opposed to Frizz hitting a single enemy with a fireball. The flames intensify and movements grow more elaborate as the spell line advances. With few exceptions, Sizz deals between 16~24 damage for 4 MP.
Originally translated as Hurt and is one of only two damaging spells in the game. The one-on-one style battles meant that it could only hit one enemy since there were never any groups to fight.
|Hurt||Firebal||ギラ (Gira)||Lv.4||2||Damages the enemy for 5~12 HP|
|Hurtmore||Firebane||ベギラマ (Begirama)||Lv.19||5||Damages the enemy for 58~65 HP|
In remade versions of the game, the spell will deal 16~20 damage instead.
The Prince of Cannock learns this spell at level 3, and it allows hit to damage a single enemy for 15~25 in the original. The spells deals 16~20 damage in the SFC and GBC remakes, and will cost 2 MP in these versions. In the smart phone version, the spell has been changed (again) to adhere to the latter series convention, now hitting one group of enemies for 10~17 damage for 3 mp.
The enemy version of the spell hits for 8~16 in all versions, and targets all three luminaries in the mobile version.
Learned by Magi and Sages at level 7. This entry is when the spell found its identity as a group-targeting hex, and has dealt 16~24 damage for 4 MP ever since.
When cast by a foe, sizz singes for 10~18 damage. This range would remain consistent up until VIII.
