In Final Fantasy VIII, Quistis can learn Blue Magic (青魔法, Ao Mahō?) as her Limit Break. Quistis learns new Limit Breaks by the use of certain items. Quistis's Limit Break attacks get more powerful the higher the Crisis Level is (see individual attack articles). Teaching every Blue Magic spell to Quistis in the Steam version earns the player the Blue Magic Master achievement.
