The zombiesbane, also known as zombiebane, zombie slasher or zombie sword, is a powerful sword in the Dragon Quest series. True to name, it deals 50% more damage to creatures from the zombie family in most instances.
Contrary to later appearances, the sword does not actually deal bonus damage to the undead; instead, the extra damage is based on the target's vulnerability to poof. When the decision to attack has been made and base damage has been calculated, the game will then check the foe's resistance to the spell and run a simulation without the player knowing. If the spell were to hit had it been cast by the player, the enemy would take 16~32 more damage.
