Selflessness is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series.


Dragon Quest VI

Selflessness shields any ally for the duration of one round. It is granted at Rank 1 of the Paladin vocation. Iron tortoises & Plated goretoises can also use this skill to defend their allies, as well as Belleau & Cabot.

Dragon Quest VII

It acts the same as in VI, and is once again granted at Rank 1 of the Paladin vocation. Armoured wartoises and Ironclad wartoises can use this ability to guard their friends.

Dragon Quest IX

This ability is learned with 55 skill points allocated into the Virtue skills of the Paladin. Unlike VI & VII, the user guards any ally in critical condition for one round. Axolhotls can use this skill in battle if their comrades are in low health.
