Sizzle is a spell in the Dragon Quest series. The spell will bake a group of enemies in a wave of hellfire, most commonly dealing 30~42 damage for 6 MP.


Dragon Quest[edit]

The Hero learns the spell at level 19, and may cast it for 5 MP. It deals 58~65 damage in the original version, and 50~65 damage in all subsequent versions. As combat was limited to one enemy per battle, it was a single-target spell.

The enemies vis mager, knight abhorrent, and the first form of the Dragonlord can use this spell against the player.

Dragon Quest II: Luminaries of the Legendary Line[edit]

The Prince of Cannock learns Sizzle at level 18, and he can cast it for just 4 MP. The spell deals 17~33 damage in the original version, and 50~65 in the Super Famicom and GBC versions.

In the smartphone and Nintendo Switch versions, the spell has been redacted to affect only one group of enemies, as in later games, and its cost has risen to 5 MP.

Sizzle is the second tier spell of Maya and can be learned by investing 8 skill points. By charging up her Sizz spell for a short time, she can cast Sizzle for 9 MP, which creates a serpentine pillar of flames that zig-zags in front of her on the ground. As Maya levels up more, she will be able to upgrade the spell and learn Kasizz. It can also be cast by enemy Silvapithecuses and Sorcerers.

Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai[edit]

Many characters in the series are capable of casting Sizzle, including Dai himself, Popp, and the Demon Lord Hadlar. However, unlike in the games, Sizzle is depicted as a beam of light and heat fired from the caster's palm after gathering energy. Dai first casts the spell against a Killing machine being controlled by the villainous sage Baron.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Sizzle is randomly available through the Hero's Command Selection ability. Similar to Sizz, Sizzle launches a smoldering projectile that ignites the opponent and ground upon contact with an enemy. It costs 20 MP to cast, but will inflict 25% with a high knockback that reliably kills at 100% near a stage's edge.

Enemy versions[edit]

In III, malefic magicians will fry the party for 22~34 damage in each subsequent game until VIII, where the enemy version deals 18~27 damage.
