—PSP description

Ninjutsu (にんじゅつ, Ninjutsu?), also called Ninja, is a type of magic in Final Fantasy IV, usable by Edge. Final Fantasy IV is the first occurrence of Ninjutsu magic in the series, and has varied effects. In the 3D versions, Edge learns three new spells. He learns most of his Ninjutsu abilities by leveling up, but two are learned in accordance with plot events. Damaging Ninjutsu relies on Edge's Intelligence to calculate damage.

On the Easy Type version, the majority of the casting times for spells were reduced from their original casting time, making these spells faster to cast.
