Banish in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.
NaharaAdded by Nahara

Banish (バニッシュ, Banishu?), is a recurring spell in the Final Fantasy series. It manifests as a projectile of light, or series of projectiles, and deals light-elemental damage.

Banish should not be confused with Warp, a recurring spell that removes enemies from battle by casting them into The Void. In some games, Warp is localized in English as Banish.

Banish is the first in a series of Light-elemental damage spells available to White Mages and Paladins. It is capable of damaging any creature (with only special exceptions), but it deals 150% normal damage to undead monsters and has a hidden effect of greatly lowering undead creatures' Defense for a brief period of time. Banish is purchasable in all three starter nations for about 162 gil or less, depending upon fame.

Casting Banish with Afflatus Misery active grants a damage bonus to the spell based on the most recent damage taken by the caster. The record of damage taken is reset upon use.
