Knuckle Sandwich is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series. It is a focused, chi-enriched hay-maker.


Dragon Quest IV Remakes

Appearing only in the remakes, it is used by Chow Mein during his and Foo Yung's boss fight.

Dragon Quest VI

Making its debut, Knuckle Sandwich inflicts 150% damage, but has a chance to miss the target if it has any resistance to the strike/rock attribute. Carver obtains this ability during a story event in Murdaw's Keep. Other characters can learn this ability by advancing to rank 5 of the Martial Artist vocation.

Dragon Quest VII

Knuckle Sandwich is learned by advancing to Rank 7 of the Warrior vocation, and is a carbon copy of VI's in the PSX version, while dealing 200% damage for 2 MP in the 3DS remake. It is also used by Wyatt, Orgodemir during the second phase of the true final battle, as well as Machismogres in the 3DS remake.

Dragon Quest VIII

Knuckle Sandwich is a Fisticuffs technique that the HeroYangus, and Angelo can learn. It requires 12 skill points by Yangus, 24 skill points by the Hero, and 35 skill points by Angelo. All three need 2 MP to perform the technique, and can also be learned by Morrie in the 3DS remake when he invests 28 skill points into his Fisticuffs skill tree.

Dragon Quest IX

This ability is learned with 25 skill points invested into the Fisticuffs skill tree. Damage is base attack + 50%, with no additional chance to miss. It costs 2 MP to use once again, making it easy to exploit.

Dragon Quest X

Acting the same as in VIII and IX, it is learned when 30 skill points are invested into the Fisticuffs skill tree. It can be upgraded with the Guru's Orb from Version 3 onwards, increases damage by 5% and Critical Rate by 1% (Max Damage: 25% Critical Rate: 5%). In addition, a stronger version called Glove Bomb makes its debut in this game.

Dragon Quest XI 3DS and Switch

Only used by the Dud dude during his boss fight.
