Venom Breath

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Venom Breath is a recurring breath attack in the Dragon Quest series, first introduced in the Monsters spinoffs that can severely poison all enemies. It closely resembles the Venom Mist skill from the main series, however, it is different ability with somewhat different effects. Since it is a breath skill, it is susceptible to skills such as TailWind, while Venom Mist is not affected.
