Berserk in Final Fantasy VII.

Berserk (バーサク, Bāsaku) is a spell which inflicts the Berserk status effect. The spell itself is not confined to one specific class of magic.




Final Fantasy II

Berserk is a Black Magic spell which increases the strength of one or all allies in battle, allowing them to inflict more physical damage per hit. This increment increases with the spell's level. This effect can stack, however repeated use on the same character(s) will increase the chance that spell will miss. Unlike later editions, the player retains control of berserked characters. Any character can learn Berserk by having them use the Berserk Tome (called the Berserk Scroll in the Origins release).
