Final Fantasy V description

Warp (デジョン, Dejon?), also known as Banish, Dezone, X-Zone, or Degen, is a recurring spell with two varying effects. Warp either allows the party to teleport between different floors in a dungeon or to escape from battle, while in other cases Warp is an offensive spell that casts enemies into The Void, removing them from battle.

In some games, Warp is localized in English as Banish, an otherwise different spell, or as Teleport, a similar spell that warps the party out of battle and dungeons, but is usually not used offensively.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy Edit


Black Wizard - ZAP!
Banishes foes to another dimension.

Warp (ZAP! in the NES release and Banish in the Final Fantasy Origins release) is a level 8 Black Magic spell which inflicts Instant Death to all enemies with a moderate success rate.

The spell can be bought at Gaia and can only be learned by the Black Wizard. In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary Edition releases it costs 30 MP to cast.

Final Fantasy II Edit


Banishes foes to another dimension or transports party to previous floor.

Warp (Banish in the Final Fantasy Origins release) is a Black Magic spell, which attempts to warp one or all foes to another dimension, essentially defeating them. The success rate increases with the level of the spell, however the success rate is drastically reduced if the spell targets all foes. When used in a dungeon outside of battle, Warp teleports the party to previous floors depending on the level of the spell. For example, if the spell is at level 3, the party will be teleported back three floors, at the point where they exited that floor.

If there are no previous floors, the party will be teleported to the world map in front of the entrance to the dungeon. This spell is ineffective in the Snow Cave, Bafsk Sewers, the Dreadnought, the Coliseum, and Castle Palamecia due to the storyline which occurs at these locations. Warp cannot be used in Soul of Rebirth outside of battle. Any character can learn Warp by having them use the Warp Tome (called the Banish Scroll in the Origins release).

Warp VIII can be cast by Wizard and Devil Wolf, while Warp IX is exclusive to Devil Wolf.

Final Fantasy III Edit

III Warp is a level 6 Black Magic spell that either moves the party up one level of a dungeon or kills an enemy. It can be used by the Black Mage, Magus, Sage and Onion Knight jobs.

Final Fantasy IV Edit


Warps party back to previous floor.

Warp (Dejon in the J2e version) is a Black Magic spell that moves up one level of a dungeon or escapes the battle. It is learned by Rydia at level 12 and Palom at level 29. It has a casting time of 0, costs 4 MP in the SNES/GBA/PSP/3D versions, and 10 MP in the PS version.

The spell's properties come to light when attempting to break down the 64 door hierarchy glitch. There are two types of map/room changes: "Go" types and "Return" types. "Go" types save the player's location, and "Return" types go back to a saved location. On the world map the player is at Room Level 0, but every time one enters a room the "Room Level" increments. Each time one exits something, the Room Level will decrement. It appears The Warp spell takes the player to the last point at which the party were at Room Level 0. In terms of normal gameplay, this should always be the world map.

Warp was originally meant to be an instant death spell, as seen in the SNES version when a Confused Marionetteer casts the spell which has no in-battle effect. The animation is the same as several other instant death attacks such as Ninth Dimension used by Trap Door, so it's possible that Warp was going to have an in-battle instant death effect, as is the case with other games in the series. This animation has been defined for the spell, but is intended to use a green palette rather than the blue palette seen when reflected.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude- Edit

FFIV-I- Warp returns as a Black Magic spell. The imposter Rydia along with Palom and Rydia already known the spell. It allows the party to warp back to the previous floor of a dungeon at the cost of 4 MP.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Edit

FFIVTAY Warp returns as a Black Magic spell initially learned by Fusoya and Rydia, and learned by Palom at level 19. It costs 4 MP and moves up one level of a dungeon or escapes the battle.

Final Fantasy V Edit


Thrown into the Rift!
—Battle text

Banish (also known as N-Zone or X-Zone) is a level 6 Time Magic spell that instantly kills an enemy if successful. It costs 20 MP and can be bought in the Phantom Village.

When Exdeath punishes Gilgamesh with this spell, he can be later found in the Rift, however, the spell still works (with the same success message) when the party ventures into the Rift. Banish can be cast by Black Warlock, Carbuncle, Chrono Controller, Exdeath's Soul, and Gilgamesh.

The player may utilize this ability by catching and releasing a Page 32, Black Warlock, Zephyrus, Chrono Controller, Gel Fish, or Moss Fungus. It is of note that when the Gel Fish or Moss Fungus are released, the spell is bugged and will hit nothing, so it is advised to never catch these two particular enemies.

Final Fantasy VI Edit


Banishes enemies to another dimension.

Banish is an attack spell (X-Zone in pre-Game Boy Advance versions) learned from the Esper Fenrir and the Cursed Ring relic, both at a rate of x5. It costs 53 MP to cast, has a 85% hit rate, and affects all enemies. The spell tears a hole into a starry space which quickly closes, taking with it any enemies that were affected by the spell. Banish will always work on an opponent with the Invisible status due to a bug that ignores Death protection. In the Advance version, the bug has been fixed. Banish is affected by Runic in the SNES version, but ignores it in the post-GBA games.

Banish works on the undead, and like most of the universal Death moves, it stalls the enemy from executing their Final Attack. A notable case is using Vanish and Banish combo in the Super Nintendo to kill Deathgaze. It would prevent the game from recognizing him as beaten. Contrary to popular belief, this does not cause the player to permanently miss the Bahamut magicite; while they won't get it for that battle, Deathgaze's death script never running also means Deathgaze is not flagged as defeated, and continues to appear at random, so he will still give the magicite whenever he is beaten 'properly'.

Sometimes, however, the existence of Regen, Sap, or Poison will mess it up, and the monster will do a Counterattack (if possible) from the beyond. Banish can be cast by Level 20 Magic and Necromancer. When cast by these enemies, the spell has a high chance of ending the game instantly.

Kefka Palazzo, when fighting an esper that challenged him in Thamasa, utilizes a similar spell to Banish to crystallize it into magicite before promptly collecting it.

Final Fantasy VII Edit

VII The Exit Materia includes the spell Remove, which eliminates all enemies in the battle (though it does not work on all enemies). The player will not receive any EXP, AP, gil, or Item drops for enemies removed from the battle in this way. The spell is the final spell on the Exit Materia, and costs 99 MP to cast. The spell either always hits or always misses, depending on if the enemy is immune against it or not.

The enemy Death Dealer is capable of using this spell against a party member through the use of Hidden One, and will merely inflict instant death on the target.

Final Fantasy XI Edit

Warp is used to return player a player to his/her Home Point, which would generally be found in a safe place, such as a city. Warp is used by players not only for transportation, but also as an emergency spell to save the caster's life if in danger and out of viable options.

Final Fantasy XII Edit

XII Warp banishes all foes in range and characters will not receive EXP or LP, if successful. This does not always work due to some foes being immune to Instant Death. It is always successful as long as the enemy is not immune if the player equips the Indigo Pendant.

In the original version, Warp is on the Time Magick 3 License and costs 30 license points. Warp has the maximum Effect Capacity, which means no other spell or technick can be performed simultaneously. The spell can be bought in Rabanastre, and Eruyt Village for 1700 gil.

Warp is a Time Magick 8 License that costs 90 LP in the Zodiac versions. Available for two job classes: Time Battlemage and Machinist, although Machinist must obtain the Famfrit license first. The spell can be obtained from a treasure in a hidden area in the Nabreus Deadlands Lifeless Strand.

Final Fantasy XV Edit


Warp is used by Noctis to teleport to a nearby place by throwing his weapon, to warp to enemies and deal damage, to instantly kill enemies during covert missions in imperial bases, or simply for warping toward when moving on the field. Ignis has an ability that lets him mark a spot for Noctis to warp to.

Final Fantasy Tactics Edit

FFT Warp (Dejeon in the PS1 version) is not usable by the player. It is used by Loffrey Wodring to open the portal to the Necrohol of Mullonde, and it also requires an incantation.

Non-Final Fantasy guest appearances Edit

Kingdom Hearts series Edit

Warp is a sleight in Chain of Memories and Re:Chain of Memories, and is a magic command exclusive to Terra in Birth by Sleep. Warp instantly erases all enemies in the area of effect from existence. In Chain of Memories and its remake, the defeated enemies give Exp but leave no items, while in Birth by Sleep this is reversed.

Etymology Edit

Warp is an element in video game design that allows a player character instant travel between two locations or levels.

The original name, Dejon, is possibly a combination of the Japanese verb 'deru' which means to "to leave", and the word "dungeon". It is also possible that it is a contraction of either the word "Deadzone" or the word "Dimension" abbreviated to fit into four characters, in the same vein that the spell "Meruton" is a contraction of the word "Meltdown" abbreviated to fit into four characters.
