### Final Fantasy ExplorersEdit

FFE Dark Messenger appears as Diabolos' signature attack. Diabolos will first charge 2 black holes, before merging it into one, and creating a dark sphere that bats fly around. The sphere will usually indirectly home in on the target with the most Malice. When it either hits the ground or a target, it creates a giant black hole that sucks people around it (Except for Diabolos) into it. The damage is usually around 1000 if one gets sucked into it. If someone is directly hit by the attack, their HP will usually be reduced to one, and they will be trapped. However, this attack cannot KO the player(s), but it can allow Diabolos to easily KO a trapped player using another attack.
