Miscellaneous skills and attempted translations from...

Final Fantasy VI

Unless otherwise noted, these skills cannot be used outside of battle, are not reflectable (with 'reflect' status), cannot be sealed (by Celes's skill Magicseal Sword), work normally on undead targets, are affected by the target's defense or magic defense, are half as effective when used on multiple targets, and are blockable (through magic evasion).

Defense-ignoring physical attacks are unaffected by the following factors that would otherwise make a difference: Attacker 'transform' status, attacker 'berserk' status, critical hits, Jump damage bonus, target defense, target 'protect' status, target defending, target in back row, and hitting the target in the back. Usually it's the target defense that matters here, which reduces defendable damage by about (defense / 256)%.

Defense-ignoring magic attacks are unaffected by the following factors that normally affect magic: Attacker 'transform' status, target defense, target 'shell' status, and target 'transform' status. Usually it's the target magic defense matters here, which reduces defendable magic damage by about (MDef / 256)%. Defense-ignoring magic also ignores critical hits, but since spells can only critical when cast by a weapon that gets automatic critical hits (the only cases of this are Flare cast by Ragnarök or Holy cast by Lightbringer), this is only relevant for a Flare spell from the Ragnarök.

Abilities that are considered magic are noted as such (either by noting "Magic." or indicating "magic damage"), partly because this often affects damage calculation, and partly because of interactions with the 'transparent' status. Specifically, most magic attacks will ALWAYS hit targets with 'transparent' regardless of hit rate and MEvd, and will also remove the status. Note that this overrides immunity to instant death, so skills that are normally prevented from working will hit anyway if the target is also 'transparent'. Physical attacks, on the other hand, will always miss 'transparent' targets, even if unblockable.

Though both are read きゅうしゅう, 吸収 (absorb) is more applicable than 急襲 (raid).

20 MP. Magic. Transfers HP from one enemy to the caster at 40 power, but reverses when used on undead targets. Never takes more HP than needed to max out the caster (or if the target is undead, to max out the target instead). 100 hit rate.

20 MP. Unblockable defense-ignoring Flame damage on all enemies (one side). Damage equals 80 times the level of a randomly chosen target divided by the number of targets.

Since the damage is very strongly affected by target level, enemy Flare Star is amazingly weak in a low-level game.

あいのせんこく Love Sentence Love Token

The name parallels Stragus's Death Sentence spell.

20 MP. Magic. Sets 'death sentence' plus an invisible status on all enemies (both sides) that causes them to receive 'zombie' status upon death (regardless of cause) rather than 'incapacitated'. Unblockable, but fails on targets immune to instant death.

Careful... this ignores 'zombie' immunity, so all wearing an Amulet (for example) does is make the status incurable once set.

The following message appears when an enemy uses this skill:

死しても呪いは消えぬ! The curse will not fade even in death! This curse'll follow you forever!
ミサイル Missile Missile

One of very few Earth attacks that works on targets with 'levitate' status.
