Final Fantasy

A Black Mage casting FAST.

Haste, also known as FAST in the Famicom release, is a level 4 Black Magic spell which increases the speed of one ally, allowing their Hit rate to approximately double.

The spell can be bought at Elfheim and can be learned by the Black Mage, Black Wizard, Red Mage, Red Wizard, and Ninja Job classes. In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary Edition releases it costs 15 MP to cast.

Final Fantasy II

Haste is a Black Magic spell which increases the speed of one or all allies, which increases their Hit rate. As the spell's level grows the effect of the spell increases and the miss rate decreases. The effect can stack, however repeated use on the same character increases the chance that the spell misses. Any character can learn Haste by having them use the Haste Tome (called the Haste Scroll in the Origins release).
