Crush (かにばさみ, Kanibasami? or クラッシュダウン, Kurasshudaun?), also called Crash Down and Pulverize, is a recurring enemy ability in the series. It is often an extremely powerful attack, either capable of dealing heavy physical damage or instant death to one party member, and is usually used by powerful bosses or enemies, though this is not always the case.
First appearing in this game, Crush is an attack used most famously by Demon Wall, and later by Lunar Titan in the Advance remake. It inflicts instant death and deals 9999 damage to one party member, and is used in rapid succession by Demon's Gate.
Crush returns as a monster spell in the sequel of Final Fantasy IV. It functions the same way as it did in the prequel, and the ability is still used by Demon Wall only.
Crush appears in two different variations. The first is used by Demon Wall and the Ultima Weapon, which instantly kills a party member. The second version is used by Creator, and does high non-elemental damage to the party and low non-elemental damage to the user's party.
Crush is used by the Sea Worm, and inflicts moderate non-elemental damage to one party member.
Use Crusher-L skills.
Pulverize is an ability used by Construct 8, which inflicts heavy physical damage to one target, at the cost of some HP.
