Quake used by Shantotto in Dissidia Final Fantasy.

Magick that conjures up a massive earthquake, nearly upending earth and sky.
—Description, Final Fantasy Tactics.

Quake (クエイク, Kueiku?) is a recurring Black Magic spell in the Final Fantasy series. It usually deals Earth-elemental damage to one or all opponents, and may not affect flying enemies, depending on the game. It has two stronger versions, Quakra and Quaga, and a counterpart exclusive to enemies called Earthquake.

Generally in games where the Earth element exists, the counter-spell Float is available to avoid taking damage.
