The spell Mini is a White Magic spell which attempts to inflict Mini on one or all enemies. The success rate increases with the spell's level. Any character can learn Mini by having them use the Mini Tome (called the Mini Scroll in the Origins release).
The effect of Mini is very different on the heroes or on the monsters. When a hero is miniaturized, his/her physical attack power is reduced significantly. There is a chance of recovery at the end of each turn and the status does not last after battle. It can be cured by Basuna at level 4 or higher. Monsters in mini status are instantly defeated: strictly speaking, they don't die, they just leave the battlefield, but characters still earn Gil and experience.
Mini VII is exclusively cast by Ghost.
