Poof is a recurring spell in the Dragon Quest series.

Description[]

Removes enemies from the battle, but EXP and gold are not awarded for enemies removed this way.

Appearances[]

Dragon Quest III[]

Making its debut, Erdrick learns the spell at level 6 or immediately with the use of a glitch in the NES Version, while both Priests & Sages learn the spell at level 2 and costs 2 MP to use.

Any party member affected by the spell are sent back to Ruida's Tavern in Aliahan where they can be retrieved. The Hero won't be affected by the spell until post-game (after Zoma's defeat).

Dragon Quest IV[]

Poof is learned by the Hero at level 1, and costs 3 MP to cast. Astraea's abacus & Tempest shield can also be used in battles to cast it.

Dragon Quest V[]

Acting the same as in previous appearances, it is learned by recruited Slimes at level 7 and recruited Grudgerigars at level 15, costing 1 MP to cast. Few enemies have a resistance, making it a hail mary in this entry and is also learned by recruited Pip fighters at level 5 in the remakes.

Dragon Quest VI[]

Acting the same as in previous appearances, it is already learned by Nevan when he joins the party, while other characters can learn it by advancing to Rank 1 of the Priest vocation. It costs 1 MP to cast once again, but uses a 50%, 20%, 10% & 0% resistance table.

Dragon Quest VII[]

Acting the same as in VI, it is already learned by Sir Mervyn when he joins the party, as well as advancing to Rank 1 of the Priest vocation once again. It costs 1 MP to cast once again, and is very effective on various Undead family monsters and Mandrake majors for some reason.

Dragon Quest X[]

Appearing as a secret technique handed down by the Kirika Monastic Order, it was used against Strazate to extinguish his power so he could not attack Astoltia again with monsters spewed from the Gate of Hell.

Dragon Quest XI[]

Learned by investing 8 skill points into the Luminary's Luminary Character Builder, it acts the same as in previous appearances, though it now targets all enemies and costs 2 MP to cast for the first time since Dragon Quest III.

Torneko: The Last Hope[]

Torneko's Great Adventure 3[]

Dragon Quest Rivals[]

The Adventure of Dai[]

Although unnamed, Matoriv visibly uses the spell to rescue the Balloon Ship carrying Dai's Party from the Blizzblaze Legion's Dancing flame army when escaping Valge Island.
