Fans are a recurring weapon type in the Dragon Quest game series and are most commonly associated with the Minstrel, Luminary, and Dancer vocations.

As a distinct category, Fans are typically mid-to-high range weapons for less melee-oriented characters, such as Maya Mahabala. Though there were originally only three individual fans in the series, the release of Dragon Quest IX has bolstered the stock by a considerable amount, and introduced several elements that distinguish a fan from it's peers.
