What are all the moves whose damage done would remain the same even if some moves like Swords Dance (which sharply raises the Atk) are used?
Like Seismic Toss ignores Attack boosts for the user and Defense boosts for the opponent.

I asked this because I made a mistake of using Curse and Seismic Toss
Weight-based moves, fixed damaging moves
This question has been changed. Is there any need of changing answer?
No need, the answer is still the same

Below are the moves that ignores stat modifications and damage would remain same.

1. All OHKO moves (They will KO the opponent if it hits^^)

  • Fissure
  • Guillotine
  • Horn Drill
  • Sheer Cold

2. Fixed damaging moves^ (not OHKO)

  • Dragon Rage
  • Sonic Boom
  • Endeavour
  • Super Fang
  • Seismic Toss
  • Night shade
  • Nature's madness
  • Final Gambit
  • Curse (When used by Ghost type, opponent loses 25% of Maximum HP each turn)
  • Guardian of Alola (Cuts the opponent's HP by 75% of it's remaining)
  • Leech seed
  • Nightmare (Sleeping opponent loses ¼ of it's max. HP each turn)
  • Pain split
  • Perish song (3rd turn)
  • Sand Tomb (After 1st turn of it's most recent usage)
  • Sappy seed (After 1st turn of it's most recent usage)
  • Magma storm (After 1st turn of it's most recent usage)

3. Moves related to foe's previous attack

  • Metal Burst
  • Mirror coat
  • Psywave
  • Counter
  • Bide

4. Always critical hitting moves^^^

  • Storm Throw
  • Frost Breath
  • Zippy Zap
  • Surging Strikes
  • Wicked Blow

Others: Sacred Sword, Darkest lariat, Chip away

^^ Such kind of moves have infinite power. However stat boosts doesn't affect it. These moves fail if it has 'sturdy' ability and items like focus sash.

^ These moves will always cut the opponent's HP in a fixed manner. Stat modifications won't affect their damaging.

^^^ All critical hits and all Always critical-hitting moves Ignores user's negative stat changes and target's positive stat changes.

Thank you!

They don't need to do that from now on!
I'm pretty sure that nobody will put suggestions here from now on. I checked the moves master list in this site and found out every such move.

@~BlazingStaraptor~ Do you know I've bad luck.
Hey it's not, it is a bit useful for us, Thanks for your efforts...
I came through with these moves today. Please add Wring Out and Crush Grip (if I'm correct that they also belong here)
But the their damage done can be increased via stat raising moves.
