The Book of Light from Final Fantasy III.

Books (, Hon?), also known as Dictionaries (辞書, Jisho?), Magic Books, and Grimoire, are a recurring type of weapon in the Final Fantasy series. While a wholly impractical weapon to wield on the battlefield, books are known more for the mystical powers hidden within their pages and thus are suited to mage type job classes.


Final Fantasy IIIEdit

III Books can only be equipped by Scholars. All of them have elemental affinities and boost the damage dealt through the use of items with the correspondent elemental effect (except for the ultimate weapon of this kind, which simply boosts the use of items). They also grant bonuses to Mind and Intellect.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit


FFXIV Omnilex

Grimoires are the primary weapons of the Arcanist and its corresponding jobs, the Summoner and Scholar. Most high level Grimoires come in two types, Grimoires of casting, for Arcanists and Summoners, and Grimoires of healing (usually labeled "Codex"), for Scholars. The latter tends to have lighter coloration.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit


FFT Bestiary

Appearing in the original version as Dictionaries, Books are used by the Mystic, Arithmeticians, and Onion Knight job classes. The way in which a character attacks with books is unique; instead of hitting the target with it, they open the book up and begin reading aloud to the target, somehow causing damage to it with their words.

Spells contained in books are best used by Mutant units, since they are able to develop Mana. Humans can't use them without the Mana+10 ability of the Shoes. All spells other than Flare target one enemy group, while Flare targets the entire horde. Each book has 20 uses.

Final Fantasy Legend IIEdit


FFLII Book Icon

Magic Books are weapons that cast magic for their attacks, and it damage depends on the Mana stat (both the user's and target's) for damage/healing/status infliction. Damage inflicting magic books have a 100% hit rate unless the enemy is immune to the element of that particular elemental attack. Status inflicting magic books have hit rates that depend on Mana and other random factors.

Books are the exclusive weapon of the game's main character, Tyro, being an apprentice historian and scholar. All available books, all bearing "Grimoire" in their names, grant Tyro Soul Breaks named after them.


A grimoire is a textbook of magic. Such books typically include instructions on how to create magical objects like talismans and amulets, how to perform magical spells, charms and divination and also how to summon or invoke supernatural entities such as angels, spirits, and demons.
