Hypnowhip is a whip ability in the Dragon Quest game series. It has a 12.5% chance of confusing enemies, ignoring the foe's resistance to confusion aside from total immunity.



In the 3DS remake of VIII, Red will learn Hypnowhip after allocating 10 skill points into her whip skill tree. It functions identically to it's counterpart in IX and costs only 2 MP.


This ability is learned with 3 skill points allocated into Whip skill and costs 3 MP to use. The skill is notably useful in the early to middle sections of the game, where scant few enemies have immunities to any status ailment.
