Use Blue Magic with the Blue Mage's !Blue Magic command. Blue Magic spells are learned when a character with the Learning ability is hit by them.

 

For brevity's sake, on this page I'm shortening magic defense to MDef, evade rate to evade, magic evade rate to MEvd, and magic power to magic.

The basic damage formula for pretty much everything is Damage = (A - D) * M. It's what goes into A, D, and M that makes things interesting.

Since M acts as a damage multiplier, anything that modifies M modifies final damage. Modifiers to A and D have more complicated effects on final damage because A and D are compared to each other on the way to computing final damage. Note that most calculations are truncated (rounded down).

If a spell does not automatically hit, then it has a (hit rate)% chance per target to succeed. Each target then has an additional MEvd% chance to avoid it even if a success is determined.

 

Blue Magic
しのせんこく   Death Sentence MP: 10Not reflectable

Sets 'death sentence' status on one enemy or ally. Always misses Heavy targets, always hits otherwise. Immunity to 'incapacitated' has no effect.

しのルーレット  Death Roulette MP: 1Not reflectable

Kills a randomly selected enemy or ally (sets 'incapacitated' status). Undead targets are immune and instead recover to full HP.

Hit rate = (99 + user's level - target's level)%.

アクアブレス   Aqua Breath MP: 38Not reflectable

Magic damage to all enemies. Massive damage bonus against Desert creatures.

A = Random(75, 84), D = MDef, M = (level * magic)/256 + 4. Against Desert targets, A gets an 8x bonus, becoming Random(600, 675).

レベル5デス   Level 5 Death MP: 22Reflectable

Kills all enemies with a level evenly divisible by 5. Undead targets are immune and instead recover to full HP when hit, but it always succeeds otherwise. Ignores 'incapacitated' immunity.

Any level bonus from Hero's Song is ignored when determining whether the spell hits, but other level adjustments (like Black Shock) count. This is a quick and dirty way to kill several bosses and other troublesome opponents.

レベル4グラビガ Level 4 Graviga MP: 9Reflectable

Reduces all enemies with a level evenly divisible by 4 to 25% of their current HP. Always fails on Heavy targets, but always succeeds otherwise.

Any level bonus from Hero's Song is ignored when determining whether the spell hits, but other level adjustments (like Black Shock) count.

レベル2オールド Level 2 Old MP: 11Reflectable

Sets 'aging' status on all enemies with a level evenly divisible by 2, regardless of immunity. Always succeeds.

Any level bonus from Hero's Song is ignored when determining whether the spell hits, but other level adjustments (like Black Shock) count.

レベル3フレア  Level 3 Flare MP: 18Reflectable

Damages all enemies with a level evenly divisible by 3. Always hits such enemies.

A = Random(254, 261), D = MDef / 32, M = (level * magic)/256 + 4. The damage is identical to the [black magic] Flare spell.

Any level bonus from Hero's Song is ignored when determining whether the spell hits, but other level adjustments (like Black Shock) count.

かえるのうた   Frog Song MP: 5Not reflectable

Sets 'toad' status on one enemy or ally.

Hit rate = (66 + user's level - target's level)%.

ちいさなメロディ Little Melody MP: 5Not reflectable

Sets 'minimum' status on one enemy or ally.

Hit rate = (66 + user's level - target's level)%.

フラッシュ    Flash MP: 7Not reflectable

Sets 'darkness' status on all enemies.

Hit rate = (75 + user's level - target's level)%.

タイムスリップ  Time Slip MP: 9Not reflectable

Sets 'aging' and 'sleep' status on a single enemy or ally.

Hit rate = (90 + user's level - target's level)%.

つきのふえ    Moon Flute MP: 3Not reflectable

Sets 'berserk' status on all allies. Always succeeds on each target that is not immune.

デスクロー    Death Claw MP: 21Not reflectable

Sets 'paralysis' status and reduces HP to single digits on one enemy or ally. Always fails against Heavy types.

Hit rate = (66 + user's level - target's level)%.

エアロ      Aero MP: 4Reflectable

Wind damage to one or all enemies or allies. Always hits, except that the Aegis Shield can block it.

A = Random(20, 22), halved if multitargeting. D = MDef. M = (level * magic)/256 + 4. Stronger than [black magic] Fire, [black magic] Blizzard, and [black magic] Thunder.

エアロラ     Aerora MP: 10Reflectable

Wind damage to one or all enemies or allies. Always hits except that the Aegis Shield can block it.

A = Random(50, 56), halved if multitargeting. D = MDef. M = (level * magic)/256 + 4. Same power as [black magic] Fira, [black magic] Blizzara, and [black magic] Thundara.

エアロガ     Aeroga MP: 24Reflectable

Wind damage to one or all enemies or allies. Always hits, except that the Aegis Shield can block it.

A = Random(140, 157), halved if multitargeting. D = MDef. M = (level * magic)/256 + 4. Weaker than [black magic] Figa, [black magic] Blizzaga, and [black magic] Thundaga.

かえんほうしゃ  Flamethrower MP: 5Not reflectable

Flame damage to one enemy or ally. Always hits, except that the Aegis Shield can block it.

A = Random(50, 56), D = MDef, M = (level * magic)/256 + 4. This is a half-cost unreflectable [black magic] Fira, minus the multitargeting capability.

ゴブリンパンチ  Goblin Punch MP: 0Not reflectable

Physical damage to one enemy or ally. Ignores row, always hits. Massive damage bonus if the caster and target are the same level.

A = weapon throw attack (for players), or monster attack (for monsters). If the player is dual-wielding, add the throw attack from each weapon. D = defense. M = (level * strength)/128 + 2 for players, or monster attack multiplier for monsters. If the caster's level equals the target's level, multiply A by 8 and set D to 0.

Any level bonus from Hero's Song is ignored when checking for bonus damage, but other level adjustments (like Black Shock) count.

Goblin Punch is the only thing in the game that benefits from Strength Drinks, since nothing else checks throw attack of equipped weapons.

くろのしょうげき Black Shock MP: 27Reflectable

Halves the level of one enemy or ally for the duration of the battle (round fractions down, minimum result is 1).

Hit rate = (66 + user's level - target's level)%.

ガードオファ   Guard Offer MP: 19Reflectable

Halves the defense and MDef of one enemy or ally for the duration of the battle. No effect if both are already 0.

Hit rate = (80 + user's level - target's level)%.

ゆうごう     Fusion MP: 13Not reflectable

Full restore to target (same as an Elixir). Damages the Undead. Kills caster regardless of 'incapacitated' immunity.

When cast on an Undead target, the target's HP is set to single digits unless the target is also Heavy, in which case it misses entirely. Fusion always hits otherwise.

Ugh. I hate these sacrificial abilities, but at least in this game you can revive the user and keep going.

マインドブラスト Mind Blast MP: 6Reflectable

Damages and sets 'slip' and 'paralysis' status on one enemy or ally. Always hits, though immunity can prevent the 'paralysis'.

A = Random(80, 82), D = MDef / 32, M = (level * magic)/256 + 4. Basically a weaker version of Flare with added status effects.

きゅうけつ    Bloodsuck MP: 2Not reflectable

Drains HP from a single enemy or ally, healing the caster by the amount it damages the target (reversed against the Undead).

Hit rate = (99 + user's level - target's level)%.

Damage equals (caster's max HP - caster's current HP) / 2. This makes it useless when healthy and potent when badly hurt.

マジックハンマー Magic Hammer MP: 3Not reflectable

Halves the current MP of one enemy or ally (round fractions down).

Hit rate = (75 + user's level - target's level)%.

マイティガード  Mighty Guard MP: 72Reflectable

Inflicts exactly 1000 damage on one enemy or ally. Always hits.

ホワイトウインド White Wind MP: 28Not reflectable

All allies recover HP equal to the caster's current HP. Always hits, and even heals the Undead normally.

ミサイル     Missile MP: 7Not reflectable

Removes 3/4 of current HP from one enemy or ally. Always fails on Heavy targets.

Hit rate = (75 + user's level - target's level)%.
