From Final Fantasy Wiki

Kimahri Ronso, from Final Fantasy X, is a Blue Mage.

Blue Mage (青魔道師 Aomadoushi lit. Blue Magic Adherent), also known as Gun Mage (魔銃士 Majyuushi lit. Magic Gunman), is one of the Jobs in some of the Final Fantasy games, first introduced in Final Fantasy V.



Blue Mages, as their name implies, focus on Blue Magic, a special subset of Magic that allows them to use attacks otherwise exclusive to enemies. Blue Mages usually learn Blue Magic by seeing enemies use it, but some games have other methods to learn their magic. They benefit greatly from the ability to Control monsters, reducing the chance involved in waiting for a monster to use their skill on the Blue Mage. Beyond this, Blue Mages vary in equipment and physical prowess. They are not as weak as other Mage classes in terms of attack or defense, and are usually capable fighters. Of course, their true strength is their magic. Blue Mages wear blue clothes and cloaks, sometimes with a mask.
