Magic Mirror is a shield ability in Dragon Quest IX for use in battle. It is learned by investing 40 skill points into the Shield skill tree. Magic Mirror costs 4 MP and when used reflects enemy spells for several turns.
- This ability is essentially the same as the spell Bounce - it even has the same MP cost.
- Although shield skills are only available to the certain vocations (for example Minstrel or Warrior), anyone who can equip a shield can use Magic Mirror (i.e. A character with full shield skill can become a Martial Artist and still use a shield.)
