VI

Fire, ice, and lightning are the three principle elements. They are represented by the spells Fire, Blizzard, and Thunder, respectively.
—Scholar in Advanced Battle Tactics

The following is a list of all elements in Final Fantasy VI.

OverviewEdit

  • If a target is weak against an element, spells and attacks with that element deal double damage to the target.
  • There are three different levels of elemental resistance: Halving, negation and absorption. Any level of resistance overrides weakness.
    • If the target halves an element, spells and attacks with that element deal half damage to the target.
    • If the target negates an element, spells and attacks with that element deal 0 damage. This effect overrides halving.
    • If the target absorbs an element, spells and attacks with that element heal the target. This effect overrides halving and nullification.
  • If an element is nullified by Force Field, it deals 0 damage. This effect overrides weakness and resistance.

These priorities apply when a character has conflicting elemental weaknesses and resistances from equipment (such as one piece of equipment that has an elemental weakness and another piece of equipment which provides resistance to the same element), and to multi-elemental spells such as Aqua Breath and Tri-Disaster (the Valigarmanda summon).

For example, Aqua Breath, a Wind / Water spell, would deal double damage against enemies who are weak against both elements (such as the Earth Dragon boss), and against enemies who are weak against one of the elements with no resistance against the other element (such as the Red Dragon and Gold Dragon bosses), against enemies who are resistant to one or both of the elements (such as the Blue Dragon and Storm Dragon bosses), the highest applicable resistance level applies.

Note that the Debilitator overrides resistance in addition to bestowing a weakness.
