Blitzstrahl (B.シュトラール, B. Shutorāru?) is a Blue Mage skill that is learned from magic dolls. It deals lightning damage to and stuns enemies within range. This spell costs four Blue Magic Points to set.
Its name is a portmanteau of the German words blitz and strahl.
Blitz is a German word for "lightning". In English it is associated with quickness.
Strahl is German for a ray or beam of light (or an arrow in older texts).
