Enrage is a status ailment that can only be applied to enemies in Dragon Quest IX. Enrage can be caused by using Whistle or Eyes on Me, though both have a chance of failing. Certain enemies also have different ways of being enraged, such as reviving a dead character, or getting a critical hit. Enraged enemies will only attack a single character in the party; the player will be notified who that character is. However, they can still use their multi-targeting abilities and these will still hit the whole party.
