Woosh is a recurring offensive wind spell in the Dragon Quest series.


Conjures a small whirlwind to rip into a group of enemies for around 8~24 damage in most appearances.

Woosh originally debuted in Dragon Quest II, where it was learned by the Princess of Moonbrooke. Since then, it is typically learned by priests and similarly pious characters and tends to be one of the only offensive spells they learn. It is related to the stronger spells SwooshKaswoosh, and Kaswooshle.

Woosh is learned by the Princess of Moonbrooke at Level 4, and deals 17~33 damage for 4 MP.

Woosh is learned by Priests and Sages at Level 12, and will deal between 8~24 damage for 4 MP. It is also used by Lump wizards and Belisha beakons in battle.

Dragon Quest IV

Woosh is learned by Meena at level 9, dealing 8~24 for damage for a reduced cost of 2 MP. These are the parameters that will define the spell for subsequent games, and is also used by Cyclowns and Whizzards in battle.

It is also used by Badger magers, Maguses, and the Master of Nu'un in battle.

It costs 3 MP to cast, with the spell's strength is calculated as Magical Might x 0.185 + 7.35 for a base range of 9~19 and a cap of 23~33. Like a real twister, Woosh will strike enemies within its range multiple times, and is also used by Acorn babies, Rumble bees, and the Leaf spirit, as well as Zeplings once again in battle.

It costs 7 MP to cast and creates a small whirlwind that damages any enemies caught within it for a few seconds. When used in conjunction with Isla's other attacks, she is able to rack up a lot of hits and damage. Isla can upgrade Woosh and is able to cast Swoosh and Kaswoosh by charging up the spell.

Woosh is already known by Meena when she joins the party.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Woosh appears as the Hero's up special move in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is a small whirlwind that sends the Hero up a short distance. Nearby opponents will also be sent into the air the same distance. Holding the special button down will turn the move into Swoosh and then Kaswoosh.

Enemy versions

When cast by an enemy in III, woosh deals 6~18 damage. This would be the standard until VIII, where the damage was reduced to 5~14. Beginning with IX it was raised to 6~21.
