Party Pooper (AKA Clean Sweep) is a recurring skill in the Dragon Quest series.


An attack which hits all party members or monsters in a group. Its power decreases as it goes down the group line.

Acting the same as in VI, it is used by this game's Gracos, as well as his descendant, Gracos V, and Gracolytes in the 3DS remake.

Dragon Quest VIII[]

Now used by party members, the Hero can learn it when he invests 45 skill points into his spear skill tree. It hits a group of enemies for Bang attribute damage, dealing 0.8 times the damage of a normal attack. After that, it decreases from 0.64 times → 0.56 times → 0.4 times → 0.24 times → 0.16 times the damage of a normal attack. It is also used by Khalamari, the Great Argon Lizard, and Frou-frous in battle. It costs 0 MP in the original and 2 MP in the 3DS remake, with the skill itself costing 1 MP if the Hero's spear skill tree is maxed out.

Acting the same as in previous appearances once again, it is once again learned by investing 42 skill points into the Staff skill tree, as well as investing 18 skill points into a recruited Mischievous Mole's Staff skill tree and by investing 9 skill points into Valeria's Cold-Hearted skill tree, hitting enemies within a range of 270 degrees in front of the user at 1.3 to 1.5 times, though it initially dealt 0.6 times the damage of a normal attack to 1 enemy about 180 degrees in front. By 1.1, its damage output was increased to about 0.8 times the normal attack and can hit more than one enemy like in previous games. From 1.4 onwards, the range has been increased to 270 degrees forward, and the damage has been modified from 0.8 to 1.2 times the damage of a normal attack and from 2.2 onwards, its power increased from 1.3 to about 1.5 times, and by Version 3 onwards, the skill could be enhanced with the Master Orb system, with damage output increasing by 10%.
