Although called Poisonga in the localization of Final Fantasy XIII trilogy of games, the spells are actually called Bioga in the Japanese versions.

Poisonga is an enfeebling spell usable by Black Mages and Dark Knights that inflicts the Poison status on all targets within a large radius. Players rarely choose to cast Poisonga, however, because it prevents putting large groups of enemies to sleep, guaranteeing that all enemies will have to be dealt with at once (any form of damage, including poison, will wake sleeping targets).
It is for this very reason that sometimes, when an enemy wielding Black Magic casts Poisonga on a party or alliance, players will intentionally not cure the poison, so that the possible upcoming Sleepga spell will be quickly negated when the players are awakened by poison damage.
Non-Final Fantasy appearancesEdit
Poisonga appeared as a Trickster class ability. The ability inflicted the poison status to all enemies.
