Hustle, hustle!— A character performing the Hustle Dance
Hustle Dance is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series.
Typically learnt by Dancers and/or Luminaries, this skill invokes buff effects that can vary by title. In its most common incarnation, Hustle Dance restores a moderate amount of HP to all active party members.
Same as VI in the PSX version, but also learnt by reaching rank 3 of the Druid vocation in the 3DS remake. In the latter, the amount of HP restored has been reduced to 50~60.
Learnt when 100 skill points are invested in the Minstrel's dance abilities, it can heal all allies and the user for 80 HP each. However, it is the first main series game to have a MP consumption for the skill. It is also used by Pink bonbons, Bags o' sweets, Snowballs, Dandelion fluffs, Trickstars, and Pretty cat flies, as well Caped caperers once again.
Sylvando can learn Hustle Dance by advancing through the Showmanship section of his Character Builder grid. Contrary to earlier titles in which magical mending is determinant of its power, Sylv's Charm value determines the skill's strength. Grey gordons and Abyssal octopots use it, as well as Caped caperers and Bags o' sweets once again, but when used by a Grey gordon gone Malicious, it Peps itself and its allies up on top of healing them.
Hustle Dance can once again be learnt by Jessica for 15 skill points and costs 25 MP to use. She is the only character in the game who can heal the entire party. When used, spotlights will appear on Jessica and she will be unable to act until the dance finishes, restoring the entire party for about 30~40 HP at the end.
- Hustle Dance can be powered up twice with the skill Hustle Dance Bolsterer for 20 skill points each, which will increase the amount of HP restored to about 90~110.
