The Solar fan is a recurring weapon in the series, and one of the most powerful fans available. Sizzling with the might of Sol, it roasts whole groups of enemies when swung.


Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation[edit]

The solar fan may be equipped by Milly and the assorted slime buddies, increase their attack and style by +110 and +49 respectively. The fan is available for purchase in Despairia for 22,000, and it's style can be bolstered to +67 after being reworked at the Fashion Forge for 16,000.

The fan gains a high style bonus when paired with the Dancer's costume, yielding a total of +132 when both items are touched up at the forge.

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

The solar fan features the same attributes as in the previous game, and can be wielded by the game's two heroines: Maribel and Aishe. In the original PSX version the game the fan can be bought in the "Grand Cathedral" version of the Immigrant town for 22,000 gold. In the 3DS remake, all versions of the town building sidequest were condensed into a single locale and the fan became a reward for the lucky panel mini-game. Additionally, it is also a reward for completing various tablet dungeons.

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

The portable port of the eighth game adds fans as a weapon category for the newly playable Red, with the solar fan being one of her best. It is available only through alchemy, and is created by combining a Lunar fan with a Magma staff and a Flame shield. When equipped, it raises the pirate's attack by +82, loses the group-targeting feature, but now has a 1/8th chance to Paralyze a foe when slashed.
