Kasnooze is a spell in the Dragon Quest series. It is the stronger form of Snooze, targeting a group of enemies for 8 MP.

The spell is unique in the series in that it effectively ignores all resistance save for total immunity. In practical terms, it has a resistance table of 100%, 100%, 70%, 0% with very little variation between games.


Kasnooze only targets one enemy in its debut, but cost a mere 3 MP.

Dragon Quest VI

Kasnooze is learned by advancing to rank 7 of the Mage vocation. As with it's predecessor, the spell has been upgraded to keep foes asleep for a minimum of 2 turns.

Dragon Quest VII

Kasnooze (SleepAll) is learned by mastering the Mage & Shepherd class.

Dragon Quest VIII

Jessica learns this spell after investing 68 points into her "Sex Appeal" skill and costs 8 mp to cast. Useful throughout the main game, the spell is rendered useless in the bonus dungeon by a plethora of enemies with total resistance to the sleep status ailment. Instead, Fuddle and Kafuddle are recommended as alternatives.

Dragon Quest IX

Kasnooze is learned by Armamentalists at level 28, and targets all monsters. It costs 8 MP to cast, possesses a base accuracy of 75%, and will begin to improve in accuracy one the caster's magical might reaches 50. The spell will become 100% accurate (barring enemy resistance) when the value reaches 799. This sudden change in accuracy and performance took several players by surprise, and was likely an attempt by Level-5 to encourage the use of other debilitative spells during battle for more varied strategy.
