Introduced in Dragon Quest

Zoom (formerly Return) is a spell in the Dragon Quest game series.


In Dragon Quest allows the protagonist to return to Tantegel castle.

In Dragon Quest II, it allows the party to return to the last place where the game was saved.

In all games starting with the third, it gives a list of previously visited locations and allows the player to choose a destination.

Attempts to cast this spell indoors usually result in the party hitting their heads on the ceiling to no effect.


Dragon Quest

Return is learned at level 13.

Dragon Quest II

Return is learned by The Prince of Cannock at level 10.

Dragon Quest III

Return is learned by the Hero/Heroine at level 7, and both Mages & Sages at level 12.

The Hero can learn it for battle with the use of a glitch, though to use it prevents the spell from being learn in the field.

Chapters 55 and 56 of Dai no Daibōken elaborate on Zoom and explain it as the ability to go to a place if you can form an image of it in your mind.
