Blind as seen in Final Fantasy VII.
Symbol as seen in Final Fantasy IV DS.

Blind (ブライン, Burain), also known as Darkness (暗闇 kurayami), is a common recurring status effect from the Final Fantasy series. It can also refer to the spell which causes such an effect. A Blinded character is very inaccurate with their physical attacks and will often miss the target, but the effect does not interfere with spell-casting. In most games, it can be cured by using Eye Drops and/or a spell that heals status ailments.

Appearances

Final Fantasy

Blind causes afflicted units to miss more often, reducing their Hit Rate. It can be cured with the Eyedrops item or the White Magic Blindna.

Final Fantasy II

Blind reduces the afflicted victim's Accuracy, lowering their Hit Rate and even causing them to miss. This status lasts after battle and can be cured with Esuna at any level, or Eye Drops.

Final Fantasy III

The status effect is healed by Eye Drops and the spell Blindna.

Final Fantasy IV

Called Darkness in the game's original incarnations and Blind in the DS remake, this status halves a character's Accuracy and Evasion, and magic spells' accuracy. It does not affect the accuracy of the enemy skills used by monsters, nor the magic spells cast by weapons and items.

Final Fantasy V

Lenna affected with Blind status.

This time, the player is able to make use of this status, by casting Flash, attacking enemies with a Darkness Bow, or some other methods.

Final Fantasy VI

The Blind status ailment is glitched in the original versions, due to the Evade Bug. However, it does prevent Strago from learning Lores. Several special attacks such as Edgar's Flash and Strago's Sour Mouth can inflict this status.

Darkness is only usable by enemies, though the player has access to the status through the means of the Ink item.
