Strago's Lore abilities.

Lore (おぼえたわざ, Oboeta Waza?, lit. Memorized Technique) is Strago's ability in Final Fantasy VI and the game's form of Blue Magic.


Strago learns different Lores by seeing an enemy use the ability (or, in some cases, seeing Gau, Relm, or Gogo use it with either the Rage or Sketch abilities) and by surviving the battle. Unlike in other Final Fantasy games, he does not have to be hit with the spell to learn it; he just has to "see" it be cast, and as such, cannot learn a Lore when he is afflicted with KO, Petrify, Zombie, Blind, Sleep, Confuse, Berserk, Stop, Hidden, Freeze, or Rage at the time the Lore is used. All Lores are magical. The optional character Gogo may also use the Lore command, but is unable to learn new Lores.

List of LoresEdit

In the PlayStation version, enemies that can use a Lore spell are referred to as Lore users within the Bonus menu. As such, all Lore users will be documented, regardless of Strago initially knowing Aqua Breath, Revenge Blast, and Stone. These enemies can be re-encountered on the Veldt only if they were fought once before. In the Game Boy Advance/mobile/Steam versions, all enemies can be fought in the Soul Shrine. One Lore can be permanently missed on SNES/PS versions. Enemies listed don't necessarily use the Lores in their normal attack script; sometimes the Lores will only show up in their Rage, Sketch, Control, Confused, or Enticed scripts. See individual enemy pages to find out if they appear in these other scripts.
