Binding Cold (呪縛の冷気 or じゅばくのれいき, Jubaku no Reiki?, lit. Spellbind Chill), also known as Ice Bind, Hold Gas, and Cursed Aura, is a recurring ability in the series. It is a Limit Break-esque ability for Golbez, which generally paralyzes all targets.
Binding Cold is an enemy ability used exclusively by Golbez after a set time at the start of the battle. After taunting Cecil and his friends, he unleashes this attack to inflict Paralysis on the party with 100% accuracy before summoning the Shadow Dragon to use Black Fang.
Binding Cold returns with its effects unchanged.
Binding Cold is Golbez's default Soul Break which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment attempts to inflict Paralysis on all enemies with 20% accuracy.
Non-Final Fantasy appearancesEdit
Binding Cold is Golbez and Awoken Golbez's ability. At the start of the player's turn, all Enemy Units receive Delay for 1 turn and take 1 damage.
