There are four types of magic in Final Fantasy IX; White Magic and Summon magic, both used by both Dagger and Eiko; Black Magic, used exclusively by Vivi; Blue Magic used exclusively by Quina. If damaging Black Magic is used against multiple enemies, it will deal half the damage to each enemy, regardless of the number of enemies. The same goes for healing White Magic.

All magic commands are sealed in Oeilvert, this includes; White Magic, Black Magic, Summon, Sword Magic, and Blue Magic.

Black MagicEdit

All Black Magic spells, with the exception of Osmose, Demi, Comet, and Meteor, follow the following formula in computing damage:

Base = Spell Power - Target's Magic Defense[1]
Bonus = Mag ... [(Lv + Mag) / 8] + Mag
Damage = Base * Bonus

Bonus is halved by Shell, being under Mini and if the player multi-targets the spell (unless the spell is naturally multi-target).

For status spells the formula is:

Chance = Spell Accuracy + Lv + [Mag / 4] - Target's Level[1]

After which two random numbers are used to determine if the spell will hit.

If (1st RN mod 100) >= Chance, attack misses
If (2nd RN mod 100) < Target's Magic Evade, attack misses
