SFX (まほう, Mahō?) is a temporary command in Final Fantasy IX only available during the battles on the stage of the Prima Vista while the play I Want to Be Your Canary is being performed. The command allows the use of stage magic. It is used to dazzle the audience and doesn't have any impact on the story. The three spells are harmless and will deal 0 damage to a single target.
The SFX command temporarily replaces the Steal command, and each actor has one specific ability available to to him during these battle scenes.
Use powerful, deadly magic.
