Sizz (formerly Hurt and Firebal) is a spell in the Dragon Quest series.


Sizz is often depicted as a line of fire that affects a group of enemies. The flames intensify and movements grow more elaborate as the spell line advances. With few exceptions, Sizz deals between 16~24 damage for 4 MP.


Dragon Quest

Originally translated as Hurt and the only damaging spell in the game. The one-on-one style battles meant that it could only hit one enemy since there were never any groups to fight.
