Dragon Quest Wiki

Eerie Light is a recurring enemy skill in the Dragon Quest series.


Lowers resistance to status effects, damages party members, and/or put enemies to sleep, depending on the game.


Dragon Quest IV[]

Making its debut, it is used by Estark when he is asleep, and damages enemies for 45 to 55 HP.

Dragon Quest IX[]

Reappearing for the first time in 5 games, it lowers an enemy's resistance to status changes for 6 to 9 turns, and is used by Freaky tikis, Tyrantula, and Orgodemir from Level 57 onwards.

Dragon Quest X[]

Acting differently from its last 2 appearances, it can put an enemy to sleep from this game onwards, and is used by Hellbound horrors, Hellbound hunters, and Succubats in battle. It can also be learned by recruited Hellbound Horrors from 2.3's latter half onwards by investing 3 skill points into their Dead Curriculum skill tree. Its success rate is dependent on the Hellbound horror's magical might and costs 5 MP to use.

Dragon Quest XI[]

Acting the same as in X, it is used by Fruity succubats, as well as Succubats, Hellbound Horrors and Hellbound Hunters once again.

Young Yangus and the Mysterious Dungeon[]

Learned by Cross eyes at level 16, and already learned by Quillers and Serial quillers when they are recruited, it poisons one monster in range.

Dragon Quest Heroes II[]

Used by Estark for the first time since his debut, it damages all enemies on the entire screen when the Lord of the Underworld is asleep once again.
