Dark Arts are the abilities used by Necromancers, each spell proving to be a powerful ability. In a manner similar to Blue Magic, spells are learned from monsters by a Necromancer, though the Necromancer need only slay a requisite enemy rather than be struck by a spell.
Dark Magic is a specialized and some times advanced form of Black Magic that generally steals something from other creatures. All Dark Magic is aligned with the Dark element (except Stun, which is associated with the Lightning element).
Dark Arts was translated as Dark Magic in the PlayStation translation, Dark Arts is the action ability of the Archaeodaemon.
Dark Magic is one of the categories of magic spells in the game, and can be equipped and used by any job.
