FFVII Berserk

Berserk in Final Fantasy VII.

Berserk (バーサク, Bāsaku?), also known as Bersk or Bserk, is a spell which inflicts the Berserk status effect. The spell itself is not confined to one specific class of magic.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IIEdit

II

Temporarily raises attack.
—Description

Berserk is a Black Magic spell which increases the attack power of one or all allies in battle, allowing them to inflict more physical damage per hit. This increment increases with the spell's level and with the intelligence of the caster. The effect can stack, however repeated use on the same character(s) will increase the chance the spell will miss.

Unlike later editions, the player retains control of berserked characters. Any character can learn Berserk by having them use the Berserk Tome (called the Berserk Scroll in the Origins release).

Berserk Tome
Effect Allows the target to learn Berserk when used outside of battle. Casts Berserk VIII on all allies when used in battle.
