Ruin FFXIII

Ruin in Final Fantasy XIII.

Ruin (ルイン, Ruin?) is a recurring ability, originating from Final Fantasy XIII. It has a stronger area-of-effect version called Ruinga. Unlike most offensive spells, Ruin first explodes on enemy contact, but then implodes.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

RUIN
Deal non-elemental magic damage to target.
—Description

Ruin is an offensive spell that deals non-elemental damage used by the Commando. It costs one ATB gauge segment. The upgraded area-of-effect spell is Ruinga.

All characters are able to learn Ruin:

Commandos deal slightly more damage with melee than with magic if their strength and magic stats are equal, which is why when attacking a solitary target, the AI controlled Commando will always favor Attack over Ruin unless the opponent is more resistant to physical attacks than to magic. If the target's physical and magical vulnerabilities are not currently known, the Commando will always use Ruin first, then the remaining commands will be Attack. The exception is if the Commando has a significantly higher magic stat than strength, like Hope, Attack will be the first move followed by Ruin.

If the player queues Blitz with Lightning in the Havoc Skytank battle (where the target is out of reach for melee attacks), she will cast a Ruin (with an increased cost) instead, and if the player queues another Ruin (Blitz or regular) she will cast them separately, meaning she will start at the beginning of her combo instead of continuing it.

While Ruin is a non-elemental magic attack, if a character using it has been given any of the Synergist's "En—" spells, then Ruin will carry that elemental effect as well.

Final Fantasy XIII-2Edit

XIII-2 Ruin returns as a Commando spell and costs one ATB gauge and deals magic damage to the target.

Serah Farron and Noel Kreiss learn it at Role Level 2, which is initial Role Level for both of them. Also, all Commando monsters know Ruin by default.
