Sweet Breath is a recurring breath attack in the Dragon Quest series.


One whiff of this intoxicatingly sweet aroma may put its victims to sleep, rendering them defenceless and unable to act.


Dragon Quest II

Debuting as one of the first status inflicting breaths of the series, it is used by Chewlips, Silvapithecuses, Merluscs, Walking corpses, Heyedras, Eyelashers, Batmandrills (In the NES version only), and Hargon himself to put the Scions of Erdrick to sleep.

Dragon Quest III

Acting the same from II onwards, it is used by Funghouls, Morphean mushrooms, Canniboxes, Firn fiends, Wyrtles, and Umbras to make Erdrick and his companions fall asleep.
