Mages with the ability to learn monsters' special attacks.

The Blue Mage (青魔道士, Ao Madōshi?, lit. Blue Sorcerer) is a job in Final Fantasy V obtained after the Wind Crystal shatters. It is the first utility job in the game, providing both offensive and defensive capabilities. Unlike most other spellcasting jobs, Blue Mages can wield not only the common spellcaster equipment, but also swords and shields, giving them more offense and defense than a regular mage.

Their Strength and Magic Power are below that of a regular mage or fighter job. To use Blue Magic, Blue Mage must learn the spells from enemies during battle. Only one character needs to learn a Blue Magic spell for the rest of the party to use it.

Mastering Blue Mage for all four characters in the mobile and Steam versions earns the player the achievement "Learn from Monsters".

Blue Mages have a vaguely "superhero" look. Most of the costume is blue, with a cape and shoulder pads, a domino mask, and for Lenna and Krile, a feathered cap.


  • Job command - Blue Magic
  • Innate abilities - Learning
  • Equipment - Knives, Swords, Rods, Shields, Hats, Clothes, Robes, Armlets

The Blue Mage's innate ability, Learning, is what makes the Blue Mage a Blue Mage. If one is going to hunt for Blue Magic, it is best to have a Beastmaster in the party. The Blue Mage need not live through the attack to learn it, so long as another member of the party finishes the battle alive.

The Blue Magic skillset gives characters the Blue Mage's base Magic unless otherwise already at a higher value.

Upon mastery, Freelancers and Mimes gain the Blue Mage's base Agility, Stamina and Magic unless they already have a higher base from another mastered job. They will also gain Learning as an innate ability.

The stat modifiers for Blue Mages are:

  • Strength: -8
  • Agility: +1
  • Stamina: +3
  • Magic: +23
