Shattershield (Aka Shield Breaker in Dragon Quest of the Stars) is a recurring skill in the Dragon Quest series.


Dragon Quest VIII 3DS

Only appearing in the 3DS remake, it is learned by Morrie when he invests 14 skill points into the Club skill tree. When used, it hits an enemy for the chance of reducing its defence by 25%.

Dragon Quest X

Making its debut, it is learned when 22 skill points are invested into the Hammer skill tree. It can lower an enemy's defence by 15% from the beginning of the game to 1.3. From 1.4 onwards, enemy's reduced defence is 50%, and from Version 3 onwards, dual wielding makes it stronger, with the defence reduction effect likewise getting the same buff. In the latter part of Version 3, a jewel of darkness known as "The Secret of Shattershield" increases the success rate of defence reduction by 10%. From Version 4 onwards, success rate of defence reduction is once again increased.
