Earthquake (地震, Jishin?) or (アースクエイク, Āsukueiku?), also known as Crack and Quake, is a recurring enemy ability in the series, and is usually a powerful Earth-elemental attack that affects the entire party. In the original Final Fantasy, it instead attempted to inflict Instant Death to the party. It can also be utilized by the player party, and is usually an ability used by the Geomancer class. On other occasions however, the equivalent spell usable by the player is Quake.

AppearancesEdit

Final FantasyEdit

Earthquake, originally called Crack, attempts to inflict Instant Death on the party. It is used by Sand Worm, Omega, Echidna, Ahriman, and Chaos.

Final Fantasy IIEdit

Earthquake was used by the Sand Worm and inflicts 50 - 200 Matter-elemental damage to the entire party. The party could use the ability, called Earthquake IX, by using the Gaia Drum item.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

Earthquake is an ability used by the Geomancer job by using the Terrain command. It deals Earth-elemental damage to all enemies, and can only be used on plains.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Earthquake, called Quake in the SNES version, is simply a weaker version of the spell Quake, dealing less non-elemental (Earth-elemental in DS) damage to the entire party, though it could be avoided by casting Float. It is used by Tunneler, White Dragon, Tyrannosaurus, Zeromus EG, and Lunar Titan.

Rydia's Titan will also use an attack called Earthquake in the scripted battle against Cecil and Kain.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Earthquake retains the same properties as it did in the prequel. It is once again used by Titan and Tunneler, in addition to being used by Rydia? as a counter to taking damage from any Eidolon.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Earthquake retains the same properties as it did in Final Fantasy IV. It is once again used by Titan, as well as other enemies.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Earthquake comes in two forms; the traditional Earthquake, used by the more deadly enemies such as Gil Turtle, Omega, and Neo Shinryu, and Earth Shaker, which does slightly less damage than Earthquake to the entire party and is used only by Bahamut, Catastrophe, Titan, and the Crystal of Earth. The party can also use Earthquake through the Geomancer's Gaia command, and can only be used if the party is fighting on the Plains, Fire-Powered Ship, Drakenvale, or North Mountain. Again, Earthquake can be avoided by casting Float.

The player may utilize Earthquake by catching and releasing a Stone Golem, Tunneller, Ghidra from a fight withAlchymia, Ankheg, or Undergrounder. The player may utilize Earth Shaker by catching and releasing a Ghidra, Zombie Dragon from the Golem fight, or Iron Muscles.

Earthquake is a weak Earth-elemental attack used by Land Worm and Sea Worm. It inflicts damage on the entire party.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Earthquake is an Earth-elemental attack used by Armadodo as a final attack, or by Ochu. It can be avoided by junctioning Quake or magic that raises Earth resistance to a character's Elemental Defense slot, or simply by casting Float. Abyss Worm has a similar ability called Sand Shake.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

Earthquake again appears as an enemy ability used by Hilgigars, Jabberwock, Lich, and the Crystal World version of Lich. It inflicts Earth-elemental damage to the party, but can be avoided by casting Float or wearing Earth-absorbing equipment. Quina has a similar ability called Earth Shake. The similar Earth Power, used by Ralvuimago, inflicts moderate Earth-elemental damage to the party.

Final Fantasy XEdit

Earthquake is used by several enemies in the game. When it is used by Lord Ochu, it inflicts Gravity-elemental damage equal to half the party's max HP. When used by any other enemy, it inflicts non-elemental damage and Delay Buster on the entire party.
