FFVIII Thunderstorm

Thunder Storm in Final Fantasy VIII.

Thunderstorm (サンダーストーム, Sandā Sutōmu?), also known as Thunder Storm and Thunder, is a recurring attack in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually an attack usable by various summons and often does Lightning-elemental damage, or Ice-elemental damage, but sometimes does Wind-elemental damage as well.

AppearancesEdit

FFIVTAY Thunderstorm is a Band ability usable by combining Rydia's Black Magic command with Palom's. It does dual Ice and Lightning-elemental damage to all enemies.

Final Fantasy VEdit

V Thunderstorm, also known as Thunder in the Anthology release, is the attack of the summon Syldra. It does Wind-elemental damage to all enemies.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

VIII Thunder Storm is the attack of Quezacotl. It does Lightning-elemental damage to all enemies. Quezacotl's summon time is 13.3s, which, according to the Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, allows the player to boost its damage to around 180% of normal damage using a regular PlayStation controller.

Its damage is calculated as follows:[1]

Damage = 60 * Level / 10 + 44
Damage = Damage * (265 - TargetSpr) / 8
Damage = Damage * 44 / 256
Damage = Damage * Boost / 100
Damage = Damage * (100 + SummonMagBonus) / 100
Damage = Damage * (900 - ElemDef) / 100:

Elemental Defense starts at 800 (0%), 900 nullifies damage and 1000 absorbs it. If an enemy is shown to be weak against an element, its Elemental Defense is below 800. If damage becomes negative (due to high Elemental Defense), the target is healed by that amount.

XI There are two abilities known as Thunderstorm.

The White Magic spell known as Thunderstorm is an enhancing spell granting the target the bonuses of lightning weather.

  • Provides the single lightning weather effect, not the double lightning weather effect. This will stack if the zone currently has thundery weather, giving effect of double lightning weather. This will have no effect during a true thunderstorm (double lightning weather).
  • Thundery weather has a chance (33% to 50%) to give Lightning spells a 10% power boost and a corresponding penalty to Water spells. If the Rairin Obi is equipped, the weather bonus will always be applied.
  • Ionohelix will always gain the full effect of this weather.
  • If the caster has the Merit Job Trait Stormsurge, then this spell will also increase the target's DEX by +3 (to a maximum of +7 with full merits).

EtymologyEdit

A thunderstorm is a form of turbulent weather characterized by the presence of lightning and its acoustic effect on the Earth's atmosphere known as thunder. Thunderstorms occur in association with a type of cloud known as a cumulonimbus.

Thunder is the sound caused by lightning. Depending on the distance and nature of the lightning, thunder can range from a sharp, loud crack to a long, low rumble (brontide).
