Zombie (ゾンビー, Zonbī?), also known as Corruption, is a recurring spell in the Final Fantasy series. It inflicts the Zombie status effect.


Final Fantasy VIIIEdit


Cause Zombie

Zombie is a spell that causes the Zombie status effect, meaning the target will be injured when curative abilities are used on it.

Zombie is often drawn from undead enemies. The spell performs best when junctioned on the Vit stat. It adds the Zombie status effect to the weapon when junctioned on ST Atk-J and defends against the status when junctioned on ST Def-J.

Casting Zombie in battle increases compatibility with Doomtrain by 1, but lowers compatibility with Carbuncle by 0.2.

When Magic Booster is used in the 2013 PC re-release, the player's inventory gains 100 Zombie spells, among other basic spells.
