Barbed Crescent (偃月刃, Engetsuha?) is a Blue Magic spell in Final Fantasy XI. The ability can be learned from Fomor enemies. When used, Barbed Crescent deals damage and inflicts accuracy down to a single target, the amount of damage dealt is dependent on the player's current TP. Barbed Crescent costs 2 Blue Magic points to equip. The ability also raises the player's dexterity by 4 and lowers their strength by 3 when equipped.


In art and symbolism, a crescent is the shape produced when a circular disk has a segment of another circle removed from its edge so that what remains is a shape enclosed by two circular arcs of different diameters which intersect at two points (usually in such a manner that the enclosed shape does not include the center of the original circle). In astronomy, a crescent is the shape of the lit side of a spherical body (most notably the Moon) that appears to be less than half illuminated by the Sun as seen by the viewer.

The word crescent is derived from the present participle of the Latin verb crescere, "to grow", and was originally applied to the form of the waxing moon.
