Blaster (ブラスター, Burasutā?), also known as Blast or Bluster, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It has various effects in different games, and has also appeared as Blue Magic. It is usually used by Coeurls and similar monsters, with some exceptions.
Blaster returns as a monster spell in the sequel of Final Fantasy IV. It functions the same way as it did in the prequel, and the ability is still used by Cait Siths.
Blaster is an enemy ability that can either cause instant death or paralyze on one party member. It is used by several enemies, including Omega, Omega Mk.II, Catoblepas, and Achelon. The player may utilize this ability by catching and releasing a Bandersnatch, Bandercoeurl, or Oiseaurare at Exdeath's Castle.
Toramas, mostly found in and around Esthar after the Lunar Cry has occurred, can use Blaster. It can either Petrify or instantly kill a party member, and the monster will only use it while it is standing.
There are three variants of this skill. Coeurl's Blaster inflicts petrification to the target while Master Coeurl's Blaster inflicts instant death and ignores Deathproof completely, and finally, Coeurlregina's Hyper Blaster inflicts instant death, too ignores Deathproof completely.
Coeurl's Blaster reduces the target's HP to exactly 1. Queen Coeurl's Death Blast has the same effect as Blaster, plus instant death. The Gun Mage can learn Blaster from either of these two abilities, however, the Blue Bullet version removes 90% of the target's maximum HP (as long as the target is not immune to Gravity) and costs 30 MP to cast.
Blaster is used by Coeurl-type monsters, and inflicts potent paralysis. It has high Accuracy, and affects a short cone in front of the user. It cannot be learned by Blue Mages.
Its success rate is as follows:
