Rhythm 'n' Bruise is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series.


Dragon Quest X

Learned when one invests 150 skill points into the Litheness skill tree of Minstrel, it raises everyone's attack by 2 levels and is the attack increase version of Hustle Dance. When raised to Level 5 with the Endless Attack Power Master Orb Jewel, everyone's attack power increase time is extended for 10 seconds.

Dragon Quest XI

Appearing as a Pep Power, it is used when 2 Bongo drongos are Pepped Up at the same time and has the same effect as in X.


A pun on the music genre of "rhythm and blues" in reference to the skill's effect of facilitating a beatdown.
