Ninjutsu ios

Edge using Ninjutsu in Final Fantasy IV (iOS/Android).

Ninjutsu... It seems similar to black magic, yet somehow different.

Ninjutsu (忍術 / にんじゅつ, Ninjutsu?), also known as Ninja Magic or Ninja, is a recurring ability and class of spells in the Final Fantasy series. It is a separate school of magic, used by Ninja.

Ninjutsu is a separate school of magic entirely. It includes healing spells, elemental spells, and status inflicting spells. The differences between Ninjutsu and magic; the spells are all non-Reflectable and in most cases targets all opponents. Other than this, Ninjutsu is no different to the other types of magic schools.

Final Fantasy IVEdit


Ninjutsu, also known as Ninja and Ninja Magic in other translations, is Edge's special magic in the game. It combines aspects of White and Black Magic, but focuses primarily on Black Magic. The Ninjutsu command's Charge Time varies, and its charge time it taken from the spell the player selects to cast.

In the Nintendo DS version Edge learns three new Ninjutsu: Tremor, an Earth-elemental attack, Frost, an Ice-elemental attack, and Gale, a Wind-elemental attack. Edge learns new Ninjutsu techniques as he levels up, with the exception of Flood and Blitz, which he learns after going into a rage at Rubicante after his parents had died at the hands of Dr. Lugae.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit


Ninjutsu returns in the sequel of Final Fantasy IV, and its Edge exclusive ability. It has the same spells as those found in the prequel and functions the same way.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit



Ninjutsu in The After Years.

Ninjutsu spells return in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Ninjutsu works in the same way as in the original Final Fantasy IV. The Ninjutsu command's Charge Time varies, and its charge time it taken from the spell the player selects to cast. The new characters Izayoi, Gekkou, Zangetsu, and Tsukinowa can now use Ninjutsu in addition to Edge.

There are also new, more powerful spells and new healing spells that have been added to the Ninjutsu arsenal. Each of the five Ninja has his or her own individual Ninjutsu spell list, with some spells being available or unavailable to certain characters.

Final Fantasy XIEdit


Ninjutsu is only available to Ninja or those who set Ninja as their subjob. Instead of using MP, Ninjutsu functions by consuming Ninja Tools which must be kept in a player's inventory.

Ninjutsu comes in three different forms, enfeebling, enhancing, and offensive, although unlike White and Black magic, the form of Ninjutsu has no significance: they all are based on a single magic skill called Ninjutsu skill. The most commonly used Ninjutsu are Utsusemi: Ichi and Utsusemi: Ni, which allow a ninja to absorb a number of attacks equal to the number of copy images. Utsusemi forms the basis of a ninja tank.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

LR While not appearing as an actual skillset, two Ninjutsu abilities, Flame and Flood, appear as locked abilities for the Purple Lightning garb which is available through a side quest in Luxerion. While both abilities share the same animations with Firaga and Blizzaga respectively, they deal physical damage and Flood deals ice-attribute damage instead of water-elemental since the element only appeared in Final Fantasy XIII. Another two Ninjutsu abilities, Lightning and Wind Slash, appear as locked abilities for the Blue Mage garb. While both abilities share the same animations with Thundaga and Aeroga respectively, they deal physical damage.
