FFIV Blitz Ninjitsu

Releases lightning through ninjutsu.
—Description

Blitz (らいじん, Raijin?, lit. Swift Lightning), also known as Raijin, Raiton, and Lightning, is a recurring type of Ninjutsu magic in the Final Fantasy series. It manifests as a series of lightning strikes on enemies. In the Japanese versions of some games, the name Raijin is assigned to a Scroll that can be Thrown by Ninjas to deal Lightning-elemental damage, rather than being cast as a spell. In these cases, the item has been translated to English as Lightning Scroll, BoltTech or Swift Bolt.

Etymology Edit

Blitz is a German word for "lightning". In English it is associated with quickness.

Lightning is a sudden electrostatic discharge during an electrical storm between electrically charged regions of a cloud (called intra-cloud lightning or IC), between that cloud and another cloud (CC lightning), or between a cloud and the ground (CG lightning).
