Dragon Quest VII

Meditation is learned by advancing to rank 1 of the Druid vocation and by mastering the Rockbomb vocation. It is also used by Orgodemir in his final forme during the true final battle, Captain catastrophes, and Major disasters.

Dragon Quest VIII

An enemy only skill for the first since its debut, Rhapthorne, the Lord of the Dragovians, and Silver Dragon use this ability in battle.

Dragon Quest IX

Meditation is learned by Martial Artists for 82 skill points of the Focus skill tree.

It heals the user for around 80 health and can be used inside a battle as well as outside a battle and it costs 3 MP to use. Though it can only heal the user, it is still very useful as it is one of the few healing techniques that can be used in different vocations (once it is acquired) and can serve as an auxiliary healing technique.

It is also used by Vermil lions, Corvus, Tyrannosaurus Wrecks, and Tyrannosaura Wrecks, as well as Nimzo, Psaro, and Rhapthorne once again. The bosses' versions of this skill heals for 500 health instead of the normal 80 health.

Dragon Quest X

Meditation is learned by investing 90 skill points into the Martial Artist's Focus skill tree and costs 5 MP to use. The healing is also affected by Tension, making it far more useful than in previous games. It is also used by the Ark Chimera, Naumannborgs, and Evil ganeshas, in addition to Vermil lions once again using this skill in battle.

Dragon Quest XI

Once again an enemy only skill, it is used by Calasmos, Mortamammoth, Orgodelotl, Nelgelas, and the End of Time in battle, in addition to Naumannborgs and Evil ganeshas once again using this skill in battle.
