Blue Magic

FINAL FANTASY V - FFV: Blue Magic Skills Guide

Blue Magic, also known as Blue, is a Magic skillset in Final Fantasy V. It is the special ability of the Blue Mage, and marks the first way in Final Fantasy to use magic learned from enemies.

Blue Magic comes in a variety of different forms, from offensive spells to positive enhancements. Some of the most useful spells in the game are Blue Magic.

The character must be hit by the Blue Magic spell either as a Blue Mage or with the Learning ability equipped while in another job to learn the spell. Only one character is required to learn a specific spell for it to be used by the others. Some enemies never normally use the desired spell onto the party and must be forced to do so to learn it. The Blue Mage doesn’t need to live through the attack to learn it, as long as another party member gets through the battle alive the desired Blue Magic spell will be learned.

Blue Magic is the only school of magic that cannot be Dualcasted. Unlike other types of magic, Blue Magic is not disabled if the user is silenced.

Upon mastery, Freelancers and Mimes gain the Blue Mage’s base Agility, Stamina and Magic unless they already have a higher base from another mastered job.

Blue Magic Demonstration:

Learning Ability

FINAL FANTASY V - FFV: Blue Magic Skills Guide

Learning, also known as Learn, is a recurring ability in the series. It is often an ability learned from the Blue Mage class, and allows the user to learn Blue Magic outside of the Blue Mage class.

Learning is a Level 2 Blue Mage ability that requires 20 ABP to learn. If the character is a Mime or Freelancer with the Blue Mage mastered, they do not need to equip this ability in order for it to be active.

With Learning, the characters can learn Blue Magic when being hit by it.

Control Ability

FINAL FANTASY V - FFV: Blue Magic Skills Guide

Control is the Level 2 ability in the Beserker (Beastmaster) class that inflicts the Control status, learned for 50 ABP. This is useful in learning the Blue Magic spells White Wind, Mighty Guard, and Transfusion. The ability has a 40% chance of working without the Hypno Crown equipped, and a 75% chance of working with the Hypno Crown equipped.

The Hypno Crown (originally called Coronet) is headgear armor that can be equipped by the party and improves the effectiveness rate of Control. It provides +5 Defense and Magic Evasion, +1 Magic, and +4 Evasion. It can only be found in Drakenvale.

With Hypno Crown equipped the player has 75% chance of controlling the target, opposed to the rate of 40% without the Hypno Crown.

FINAL FANTASY V - FFV: Blue Magic Skills Guide

Drakenvale, also known as the Valley of Dragons, is a location in Final Fantasy V. It is the only place where the dragon grass grows in the second world, and used to be a habitat for wind drakes in the past.

Drakenvle is accessible in Galuf’s World and the Merged World

Azulmagia

FINAL FANTASY V - FFV: Blue Magic Skills Guide

Azulmagia (also known as Apocalypse in the RPGe translation) is a boss and one of the Demons of the Rift in Final Fantasy V. Locked up in the Dimension Castle dungeons, he will attack the party if they answer affirmatively to his question of whether they are heroes. He is a notable encounter for all the Blue Magic he can use.

Azulmagia has 17 of the 30 Blue Magic spells in the game and casting certain Blue Magic spells on him will cause him to learn them and start using them on the party, giving him a total of 28 of the 30 Blue Magic spells he can actively use (he will not use Transfusion and Moon Flute). These 28 spells can be learned by any Blue Mage in the party, if they have not learned them already.

Blue Magic:

Doom, Roulette, Aqua Breath, Level 5 Death, Level 4 Graviga, Level 2 Old, Level 3 Flare, Pond’s Chorus, Lilliputian Lyric, Flash, Time Slip, Death Claw, Aero, Aera, Aeroga, Flame Thrower, Goblin Punch, Dark Spark, Off-Guard, Mind Blast, Vampire, Magic Hammer, Mighty Guard, Self-Destruct, ???, 1000 Needles, White Wind, Missile

Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

Q: How many blue magic skills can I learn from Azulmagia?

A: Azulmagia has 17 of the 30 Blue Magic spells in the game however he is a boss and can only be fought once and the chances of him using all of the spells is not likely. There are much easier ways to obtain blue magic spells.

Q: Why didn’t you include bosses like Enou, Famed Mimic Gogo and Gilgamesh that blue magic spells can be obtained from?

A: There are many ways to obtain blue magic, some just are not very practical. If its not practical its not in the guide. For example you can learn Aqua Breath from Famed Mimic Gogo but that wool also mean you would have to beat him in battle which is difficult unless you simply wait and do not attack.

Additionally, there are enemies that do not appear in every version of Final fantasy V such as Enou, Omega MKII and Hades. For this reason I left them out so this guide can be used for any version of the game whether it Pixel, SNES, GBA, MOBILE, Steam Etc.
