Quistis casting White Wind, a common Blue Magic.

Blue Magic (青魔法, Ao Mahō?), also referred to as Blu Mag, Enemy Skill, Blue Bullet, Ronso Rage, Lore or Blue, is a skillset consisting of abilities used by monsters. Most of the time, a character who can use it is known as a Blue Mage. It first appeared in Final Fantasy V and has since appeared in every game in the main series except for Final Fantasy XII and XIII. The exact method of learning Blue Magic has varied, but all involve them being learned directly or indirectly from enemies.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Main article: Jive

Jive is the character Calca's special ability. Unlike traditional Blue Magic, Jive acts more like a cross between Blue Magic and Dance abilities in that an attack is chosen at random. There was supposed to have been a traditional Blue Magic command for Harley, but it was dummied out. It's incomplete and doesn't have any spells.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Main article: Blue Magic (Final Fantasy V)

This game was the first to utilize Blue Magic. It also has the most Blue Magic spells of any single-player Final Fantasy game so far, with thirty. Blue Magic is learned in this game when the Blue Mage is struck with a learnable spell. Of note, Blue Magic when equipped to a character gives the character base Freelancer Magic +23.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Main article: Lore (Final Fantasy VI)

Blue Magic, called Lores, are Strago's specialty. Unlike Blue Mages in Final Fantasy V, Strago only has to see an enemy magic used in order to learn it. Due to this, it's easier to learn a Lore, but learning is disabled if Strago is inflicted with Blind, Petrify, Zombie, Sleep, Confuse, Stop, Freeze, or Rage status at the time the Lore is used. This means that in addition to enemies, Gau and Relm can teach Strago Blue Magic by using Rage and Sketch, respectively.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

Main article: Enemy Skill Materia

The Enemy Skill Materia functions just like the Blue Mages from Final Fantasy V. Once equipped with it, any character hit by an enemy skill will learn it. However, only that piece of Materia will keep the skill.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Main article: Blue Magic (Final Fantasy VIII)

In Final Fantasy VIII, Quistis can learn Blue Magic from special items dropped by enemies. Quistis can only use the spells with her Limit Break.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

Main article: Blu Mag (Final Fantasy IX)

Quina Quen learns Blue Magic by using Eat on his/her opponents when they have less than 25% (1/4th) of their max HP left. Eating the enemy may teach Quina a new ability, if the enemy is one that can teach him/her one. When s/he is in Trance, s/he can use the Cook ability, which successfully eats opponents that have less than 50% (1/2) of their max HP left.

Final Fantasy XEdit

Main article: Ronso Rage

Blue Magic (referred to as Ronso Rage in this game) is Kimahri's Overdrive. For Kimahri to learn Blue Magic, he has to perform Lancet on the enemy with the spell. Once he does, he will permanently learn it, and his Overdrive meter will fill.

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

Main article: Blue Bullet

The Gun Mage dressphere can learn certain enemies' skills by surviving the attack. Learned skills can be used directly after via the Blue Bullet command. Learned Blue Bullet skills must be learned by each party member individually.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Main article: Blue Magic (Final Fantasy XI)

Blue Magic is used by the job Blue Mage. It is also a type of magic skill that players must skill up in order to use effectively. Blue Magic spells are based on the caster's Blue Magic skill, rather than Enhancing Magic, Enfeebling Magic, Divine Magic, Dark Magic, and Elemental Magic. Final Fantasy XI contains the most Blue Magic spells of any Final Fantasy, with over 150 spells at the Blue Mage's disposal.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

There is no Blue Mage Class nor Blue Magic in Final Fantasy Tactics, however a few spells can only be learned "Blue Magic style". The spell Ultima can only be gained when it is used on Ramza or his sister Alma in Chapter 4 (or earliest Luso in Chapter 3, but only in the War of the Lions remake). A greater form of Ultima can be learned by Alma during the battle with the final boss Ultima.

Any character can learn spells such as Thundaja and Firaja from having them cast on them while they are a job that learns it (i.e. a Black Magic spell can only be learned "Blue Mage style" if the target is a Black Mage), but this usually only applies to the "-aja" tier spells, and a majority of Summon spells. The last spell is the Summon Zodiac can only be learned when it is used on a Summoner during the battle with the optional boss Elidibs.

Final Fantasy Tactics AdvanceEdit

Main article: Blue Mage (Tactics Advance)#Blue Magic

Blue Magic can be used by Blue Mages, a job only available to humes.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

Main article: Blue Mage (Tactics A2)#Blue Magick

Blue Magic returns as "Blue Magick" and is only usable by humes.

Bravely DefaultEdit

Main article: Vampire (Bravely Default)#Genome Abilities

Blue Magic is presented as Genome Abilities, which can first be learned by the Vampire job class and are acquired when a character with the Genome Drain support ability is hit by an enemy's attack. Genome Abilities are part of the Vampirism skillset while Genome Drain is the specialty of the Vampire and is obtained as a support ability at Job Level 13.
