Aerith Holy

Holy used by Aerith in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

Light our way!

Holy (ホーリー, Hōrī?), also known as Fade, White, or Pearl, is usually a very powerful spell made up of pure holy energy and as such deals holy-elemental damage. Despite it being one of the most powerful offensive spells, it is classified as White Magic and can often only be cast by White Mages.

It is often a counterpart to the Black Magic spells Flare or Ultima, and the spells often have similar graphics. Undead are usually weak to holy magic. In some games, characters or enemies may have access to an upgraded version, Holyja.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy Edit


White Wizard - FADE
Damages all foes with holy light.

Holy (FADE in the NES release due to censorship issues) is a level 8 White Magic spell which inflicts a large amount of damage against all enemies. The total damage dealt depends on the caster's Intellect. It is one of the most powerful offensive spells, second only to Flare.

The spell can be bought at Gaia and can only be learned by the White Wizard job class. In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary Edition releases it costs 50 MP to cast. If a character wields the Sage's Staff when they cast this spell, the damage will be doubled.

Final Fantasy II Edit

Deals holy damage.

Holy is a non-elemental White Magic spell. It can be learned from its respective scroll/tome, as with all other spells. It can be bought at Mysidia and in the secret merchant underneath the waterfall in the Unknown Cave. Holy XVI can be used exclusively by Deumion and the Light Emperor.

Final Fantasy III Edit

III Holy is a level 8 White Magic spell bought for 60,000 gil in Eureka. It deals light-elemental damage, and can only be used by the Devout or Sage. Unei can also cast Holy when she joins the party as a guest in the 3D version, and the spell can be used through the item White Musk. It has a base power of 160.

Final Fantasy IV Edit


Causes holy damage.

Rosa learns Holy (White in the SNES version due to censorship) at level 55 in the 2D versions, and at level 60 in the 3D versions. Porom learns it at level 52, while Fusoya knows the spell when he joins the party. The weapons Holy Lance and Asura's Rod cast Holy when used as an item, while the Lightbringer randomly casts it after attacking (though the latter two are only available in the GBA/PSP versions). Deathmask is the only enemy capable of casting this spell.

It has a casting time of 3, cost 46 MP, spell power of 340 with a 75% accuracy. Holy can inflict Sap if the target is weak against Holy in the 2D versions. In the 3D version, Holy costs 50 MP, and has a spell power of 140 with 100% accuracy.

On the Easy Type version, the casting time was reduce to 2, and it still retains the same effect from the original game.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude- Edit

FFIV-I- Holy returns as a White Magic spell. Rosa learns it at level 55 and Porom learns it at level 52. It deals major Holy-elemental damage to a single target at the cost of 46 MP.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Edit

FFIVTAY Holy deals high Holy-elemental damage for 46 MP. It can be used by Porom at level 52, Leonora at level 70, Rosa at level 60, and Fusoya by default. There are some Band abilities that seem to use Holy, including Holy Burst and Holy Ray.

Final Fantasy V Edit

V Holy is a Level 6 White Magic spell, costs 20 MP to cast, and it is obtained in the physical side of the Fork Tower after defeating Minotaur. When Minotaur is defeated, he attempts to use the spell, but fails due to having no MP. If the player chooses to use an Ether on Minotaur, he will properly cast the spell. Holy can be properly cast by Barrier, Enuo, Exdeath in the final battle, Famed Mimic Gogo, Halicarnassus, and Neo Exdeath.

The player may utilize this ability by catching and releasing a Mini Dragon. Holy is one of the spells that can be cast from the Wonder Wand for free.

Final Fantasy VI Edit


Attacks with holy energy.

Holy is classified as an Attack spell with a power of 108, a hit rate of 150, and is vulnerable to Runic. Terra and Celes both learn Holy through leveling up, Terra at level 57 and Celes at level 72. For other characters, Alexander teaches the spell at a rate of x2. It costs 40 MP to cast. Holy may be randomly cast when attacking with the Holy Rod, Holy Lance, or Lightbringer.

Holy can be cast by Dullahan, Holy Dragon, Level 60 Magic, Level 80 Magic, Cherry, Magic, Master Tonberry, Behemoth King (Living), Warlock, Kaiser Dragon, and Tonberries.

In the SNES/PS version, Holy was translated as "Pearl", but this may have had as much to do with Ted Woolsey's creative translations as censorship, as the spell White Wind was translated as "Pearl Wind".

Final Fantasy VII Edit


Holy Held Back

Sephiroth contains Holy.

Holy serves as a plot device, and as such, it cannot be used by the player in battle. Known as the "Ultimate White Magic" and summoned through the White Materia held by Aerith Gainsborough, it is the only magic spell capable of stopping Meteor, the "Ultimate Black Magic", summoned through the Black Materia, that would destroy the world. Thus, it is actually more of a defensive spell than its other incarnations.

Alexander's summon is the only holy-based attack in the game, and summoning him or connecting his Materia to an Elemental Materia is the only other way to inflict holy-elemental damage.

Final Fantasy VIII Edit


Holy magic damage/one enemy

Holy returns as a usable spell which inflicts heavy holy-elemental damage on one opponent. It is a rare spell that can only be drawn from bosses with the exception of Elnoyle. It is one of the best spells to junction onto HP and Magic. It can also be junctioned onto Elem-Atk-J and Elem-Def-J and can also protect the player from certain status effects when junctioned onto ST-Def-J. The spell can also be used through the Holy Stone item.

Casting Holy in battle increases compatibility with Alexander by 2, with Carbuncle and Leviathan by 1, with Eden by 0.4 and with Bahamut by 0.2, but lowers compatibility with Doomtrain by 2.

Final Fantasy IX Edit


Causes Holy damage.

Holy is a White Magic spell for Eiko, learned through the White Robe or the Angel Flute, Eiko's ultimate weapon. Beatrix is also able to cast the spell during the short time she is a playable character. Quina learns Lv. 4 Holy as Blue Magic, which deals Holy damage to enemies whose levels are multiples of four. Holy costs 36 MP to cast and has a power of 113. It can be reflected and works with Return Magic.

The formula for Holy is as follows:

Base   = Spell Power - Targets Magic Defense
Bonus  = Mag ... [(Lv + Mag) / 8] + Mag
Damage = Base * Bonus

The bosses Trance Kuja, Ozma, and Necron can all use the spell.

Tetra Master Edit

Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission Edit

Final Fantasy XI Edit

Duration Unknown (for undead defense reduction)
Casting Time 0.75 sec
Recast Time 60 sec
Magic Type Divine Magic
Element Light
Jobs WHM 50

PLD 55

Holy is a form of White Magic, in the Divine Magic category. It is usable by both White Mages and Paladins. Unfortunately, the Holy spell is not very strong. At a cost of 100 MP, the spell will often deal only about 300 damage, even to the weakest foes, unless a White Mage exploits Afflatus Misery.

There also exists a spell named Holy II, which can only be cast by very high level White Mages and Paladins and Proto-Ultima and Alexander (high-level Notorious Monsters), the latter of which also has an attack called Mega Holy; these spells are rather powerful.

Final Fantasy XII Edit

XII Holy is a Level 7 White Magick spell on the License Board and requires 55 LP to unlock. It deals Holy-elemental damage against a single target and has the maximum Effect Capacity, which means no other spell or Technick can be performed simultaneously. Holy can be purchased at Balfonheim Port after the events at the Pharos for 11,200 gil.

In the Zodiac versions, Holy is a White Magick 11 License. It can only be obtained from a chest at the Pharos's First Ascent/Wellspring Ravel. It is a spell for both White Mage and Monk job classes, though Monks can only learn it after getting the Esper Chaos license. Reddas can also use Holy when he joins as a guest.

The Undying uses Piercing Holy, which penetrates a character's Reflect status, during the final battle.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings Edit

FFXIIRW Holy is a spell that Penelo, the Esper Zalera, the Judge of Wings, White Mages, and Feolthanos can use. The spell deals damage to one foe. Zombies and vampyrs take extra damage from it. Penelo learns Holy at level 42. Zalera also uses Holy as his regular attack.

Final Fantasy XIV Edit


FFXIVL Holy Icon

Holy appeared in the original Final Fantasy XIV after the release of Patch 1.21. It was a White Mage spell available after completing the "Wheel of Disaster" job quest at level 45. When used, the player would consume all of their MP to deal high damage to all enemies near the user and would inflict the bind status.

FFXIV Holy Icon

Holy appears in the relaunch as a White Mage ability after completing the "Yearn for the Urn" job quest at level 45. Holy has a casting time of 3 seconds and has a recast time of 2.5 seconds. The spell now inflicted damage with a potency of 200 to all enemies in range and will inflict the stun status for a period of 4 seconds. As of the release of Heavensward, Holy deals damage with full potency for the first enemy, damage dealt is now decreased by 10% for the second, 20% for the third, 30% for the fourth, 40% for the fifth, and 50% for all remaining enemies - Casting multiple times does not make the spell do diminishing damage, the damage instead cascades downwards, with the first target receiving 200, the second 180 and so on, to a minimum of 100 potency per enemy.

At the the initial release, Holy had a potency of 240 and a 4 second stun effect. After the release of patch 2.1, Holy had its potency lowered to 200 for game balance.

Final Fantasy XV Edit




Noctis instantaneously smites foes with sacred energy and deals holy damage to nearby enemies when Noctis dodges their attacks with the Ring of the Lucii equipped in the weapon slot. The ring can be equipped in Chapter 13 and Holy is the second spell Noctis learns on it.

Damage scales with Noctis's Magic and level. Holy is activated by tapping or holding down the Phase/Defense button, and is a counterattack. Should the Phase/Defense button be held without Noctis being attacked, he will walk cautiously like in Phase Mode, but will be in a focused state to ready the spell when pressed to do so. Doing this gradually drains his MP at a rate of 10% per second. If Noctis successfully counters an enemy with Holy, he will recover 15% of his maximum MP (10% before Patch 1.06). Unlike phasing, this does not work against bullets.

Blinking (timing the dodge perfectly) makes Noctis do an especially strong Holy that deals 15 times more damage (thus it almost always hits the damage cap) and recovers 40% of his max MP. If far away, Noctis will teleport close to the enemy. This frequently puts enemies to Vulnerable.

After patch 1.06 Holy's normal damage was halved, but its MP recovery was boosted and the recovery time between casts was removed. The patch adds the improved Holy activated via blinking.

Final Fantasy Tactics Edit

Bright light, shine down on bloody impurity! Holy!
—Upon casting (PlayStation)

Learned by the White Mage, Holy is White Magic that costs 600 JP to learn. It costs 56 MP to use and has a speed of 17. Unlike many offensive spells in the game which can be learned by the player, Holy ignores all of the target's magic evasion, unless the target has immunity against holy-elemental. Holy is also considered to be the best attack spell to be calculated.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance Edit


Emits a holy light to deal damage.

Holy can be learned by Bishops through the Nirvana Staff. As such, the spell is only usable by bangaa, however hume Paladins can learn a ranged weapon skill born of the spell called Holy Blade, which allows the player to attack with a double damage Holy-elemental weapon attack. Also a monster called Titania (Tactics Advance) can use a form of Holy magic called LV?D Holy that deals harsh Holy damage to all units with a level equal to the current day.

Holy costs 32 MP to cast, has a Magic Power of 50, and has a range of 3. It can be retargeted back at the user through Return Magic and is stealable through the ability Steal: Ability. Holy cannot be reflected, but MP can be absorbed whenever it is cast.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift Edit

TA2 Holy can again only be learned by Bishops through the Nirvana, has 3 range and costs 32 MP to cast. It deals holy damage and needs 400 AP to be mastered.

There is also another ability called 'Holy Strike'. It can be learned by s through the Sanjiegun. Unlike Holy, it uses Strength, costs no MP, but only has 1 range. Likewise, it deals holy damage and requires 350 AP to be mastered.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Edit

FFCC Holy could be cast by combining any Fire, Blizzard, or Thunder Magicite with one Life Magicite, the latter being in the second command slot. It causes base magic damage to every monster, aside from Raem, and makes ghost monsters more susceptible to physical attacks.

Etymology Edit

A pearl is a hard object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes (baroque pearls) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries. Because of this, pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.
