Banish (デジョン, Dejon), also known as X-Zone and Telega, is a recurring spell from the series, usually sending the target to a void. X-Zone is also known as a status effect in Final Fantasy XII.




Final Fantasy V

X-Zone, N-Zone, or Banish is a level 6 Time Magic spell, it instantly kills an enemy if successful. It costs 20 MP. Can be bought in the Phantom Village. When successful, the spell proclaims that the enemy was "Thrown into the Rift!". Indeed, when Exdeath punishes Gilgamesh with this spell, he can be later found in the Rift. The spell still works (with the same success message) when the party ventures into the Rift.

Final Fantasy VI

X-Zone, or Banish, affects all enemies. The spell tears a hole into a strange starry space which quickly closes, taking with it any enemies that were affected by the spell. Always works on an opponent with the Clear status ailment due to a bug that ignores Instant Death protection. In the Advance version, it no longer ignores Instant Death protection.

X-Zone works on undead, and like most of the universal Instant Death moves, it stops the target from executing their final counter. A notable case is that casting Vanish/X-Zone will cause Deathgaze to not drop the Bahamut magicite, as it does that as a counter to the killing blow. Sometimes, however, the existence of Regen, Seizure, or Poison will mess it up, and the monster will do a counterattack (if possible) from the beyond.

Final Fantasy 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 items for any enemies removed from the battle in this way. The spell is the final spell on the Exit materia, and costs 99 MP to cast.

Final Fantasy X

Banish is used by Seymour. It automatically kills an Aeon.

Final Fantasy XI

Banish is the first in the series of Light-elemental damage spells available to White Mages and Paladins. While it is capable of doing decent damage to any creature, it does do 150% normal damage to ghosts and skeletons and has a hidden effect of greatly lowering undead type creature's Defense characteristic for a brief period of time. This spell is purchasable by vendors for about 162 gil or less, depending upon fame.

Final Fantasy XII

"The character has vanished without a trace. The effect cannot be reversed."

The Demon Wall may cast Telega, causing one or more characters to be "cast into the void". They are no longer visible or controllable, and the character gets the status X-Zone. This effect cannot be removed by any item or spell, and can only be removed by leaving the area.

  • The damage from Banish is effectively quadrupled against minions, given the damage is initially doubled because they are summoned creatures, and then doubled again since holy damage deals twice as much against undead, allowing for a total of 232 damage at 16 Smiting Prayers.
