The cobra claw is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. It is a mid-to-end game weapon can lethally poison its target, with the success of the infliction varying between titles. Monsters will succumb to the poison at a fixed rate, ignoring any resistances save for immunity.



The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +80 and a poisoning rate of 1/6th. It can only be wielded by AlenaMaya, and Psaro and appears in the remakes only. It can be found in the bonus dungeon.


The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +90 and a much higher poisoning rate of 1/4th, making it an ideal weapon even when alternatives with more attack power are available. It can only be wielded by Debora and several monster companions. It is found in Crocodilopolis and by either a Doom slugger or a Gloom slugger at a rate of 1/32.


The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +90, style bonus of +29, and a poison rate of 1/6th. It can be wielded by AmosGooberHealieSpotKingsley, Curie, Shelley, and Mercury. They can be found sometimes after fighting Aggrosculptures and Merkings, and sold for 26,250 gold coins.


The cobra claw has the exact same stats and bonus abilities as in VI, but may only be equipped by Ruff. It can be purchased at the Sea Dragon for 35,000 gold.


The cobra claw has an attack bonus of +75 and inflicts 1.3 times damage against monsters of the Demon family. It only appears in the 3DS version of the game and can be equipped by Morrie.
