Blitz FFXIII

Blitz as seen in Final Fantasy XIII.

Deal Physical damage to targets in range.
—Description, Final Fantasy XIII

Blitz (エリアブラスト, Eria Burasuto?, lit. Area Blast) is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series first appearing in Final Fantasy XIII as an attack that hits multiple enemies. There is a stronger version of Blitz called Area Sweep, and variations of the base Blitz attack that deal fire, ice, wind, and lightning-elemental damage.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

XIII

BLITZ

Blitz is a Commando command ability that physically attacks multiple enemies for two ATB segments, doing slightly more damage than a normal attack, but less than two. All party members can learn it except Vanille.

Most characters perform a single spinning attack that hits all nearby enemies, but Sazh's Blitz is unique and is comprised of eight shots fired in a sweeping motion from left to right in front of him for 60% damage of a normal attack*the full damage of one use of Attack, combining both pistols per bullet, which can potentially deal considerably more damage than other Blitzes, and up to 2.4 times that of two normal attacks for the same cost depending on how many of the eight bullets hit. Larger enemies provide more targetable area and those closer to Sazh are placed in a narrower bullet spread, allowing more shots to hit.

Havoc Skytank is out of reach of melee attacks. If the player queues Blitz with Lightning in this battle, she will cast a Ruin (with an increased cost) instead, and if the player will queue another Ruin (Blitz or regular) she will cast them separately, meaning she will start at the beginning of her combo instead of continuing it.

Final Fantasy XIII-2Edit

XIII-2 Blitz returns performing the same function. Both Serah Farron and Noel Kreiss can use Blitz as a ranged attack, damaging enemies around their target in a similar manner to -ra level magic. It also can be performed midair as opposed to the first installment.

Elemental Blitz attacks (Heat Blitz, Ice Blitz, Electric Blitz, and Aero Blitz for fire, ice, lightning, and wind respectively) have been added as part of the Ravager skillset, and Paradigm Pack Commando creatures have access to Area Sweep, a stronger version of Blitz.

Lightning and Gilgamesh use Blitz against the party.

FFBE Ability Icon 10
Damage all enemies.
—Description

Blitz returns in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius under its original name, Area Blast, alongside its elemental variants—all of which deal physical damage to all enemies. Area Blast costs 17 MP to cast and deals non-elemental physical damage (1.8x). In the Global version of Brave Exvius, Area Blast is an ability currently exclusive to Lightning, who learns the skill at level 46 (5★); in the Japanese version, Snow, Hope, and Fang learn Area Blast at level 78 (5★), 64 (5★) and 72 (5★), respectively.

The elemental variants are limited to Lightning, however. At level 48 (6★), she simultaneously learns Electric Blitz (which inflicts lightning damage 2x), Ice Blitz (which deals ice damage 1.9x), and Heat Blitz (fire damage 1.9x). She learns Aero Blitz, a wind-elemental attack (1.9x damage), at level 72 (6★). All cost 20 MP, except for Electric Blitz, which costs 23 MP to execute.

Non-Final Fantasy appearancesEdit

Kingdom HeartsEdit

In Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Sora can use Area Blast and Area Sweep under the names Round Blitz and Aerial Sweep. Round Blitz is a spinning attack, while Aerial Sweep is a spinning attack that spins Sora into the air to hit over a larger area. Sora is also able to learn fire, ice, wind, and thunder-elemental variants of the two attacks.
