Blink in the Advance version of Final Fantasy IV.

Blink (ブリンク, Burinku), also known as Image, Mirage, or Ruse, is a recurring spell that increases evasion.




Final Fantasy

Blink, also known as RUSE in the Famicom release, is a level 1 White Magic spell which increases the caster's Evasion stat by 80 points.

The spell can be bought at Cornelia and can be learnt by the White Mage, White Wizard, Red Wizard, and Knight Job classes. In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary Edition releases it costs 3 MP to cast.

Final Fantasy II

Blink is a White Magic spell which increases the Evasion of one of all allies, which reduces the hit rate of enemy attacks. As the spell's level grows, the spell's effectiveness and success rate increases. The effect can stack, however repeated use on the same unit(s) increases the chance that the spell will miss. Any character can learn Blink by having them use the Blink Tome (called the Blink Scroll in the Origins release).

Blink returns as a White Magic spell that can be learned by various characters throughout the game and costs 8 MP to cast. It functions in the same way as in Final Fantasy IV.

Final Fantasy V

Blink is a level 4 White Magic spell that costs 6 MP to cast and can be bought for 3,000 gil at Regole, Castle of Bal, Castle Surgate, and Quelb.

Final Fantasy XI

Blink is a spell that, when it is cast on a character, they gain protection from the next physical attack that would hit them and cause that attack to automatically miss. Blink can be dispelled by a Dispel effect, a successful physical attack, which will be negated by Blink, or if the protected target is hit with an multi-target physical or magical ability. There are also Ninjutsu spells in Final Fantasy XI that give a Ninja Blink for more than one hit.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Blink is a Story Mode skill. It enables the character to prevent an instance of Berserk once.
