Mercurial Thrust is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series.


Gives the user an immense priority in turn order, often going first.


Dragon Quest VI

Mercurial Thrust has the third highest priority of any ability in the game, trailing behind only Double Up and Kaclang, but attack power is reduced to 80% when used. It is obtained by advancing to rank 5 of the Warrior vocation. It is also used by Animated armours, Octavian pirates, Brock, Zozagel, and Mortamor in his second forme in battle.

Dragon Quest VII

Mercurial Thrust operates exactly as it did in the previous game, and is learned by reaching rank 4 of the Warrior vocation, rank 2 of the Berserker vocation, and rank 7 of the Notso macho vocation.

Dragon Quest VIII

The Hero can use Mercurial Thrust as a spear technique after investing 7 skill points into the associated skill. It is also used by Great sabrecats, Night foxes, and Dark sabrecats in battle, as well as Octavian pirates once again.

Dragon Quest IX

This ability is learned with 3 skill points invested into the Spear skill tree and acts the same as in previous appearances. It is also used by Bewarewolves and Lesionnaires in battle against enemies.
