Whack (formerly Beat) is a spell in the Dragon Quest game series. It instantly reduces the target's HP to 0, causing instant death but, with a small chance of success.
Kiryl learns Whack at level 18.
Debora learns this move, but only in the DS remake.
Angelo learns Whack at level 17.
Whack is learned by priests at level 20.
In an interview with Nintendo Power magazine, series creator Yuji Horii noted that the AI in Dragon Quest IV was built such that in its original version, Kiryl's algorithms would always conclude Whack (called Beat in this version) and the character would end up casting it turn after turn, simply because it "could not get over the power of the spell." The problem was halfway corrected in the balance-adjusted PS1 remake, except that he almost never cast Whack.
