Quake (クエイク, Kueiku) is a recurring Black Magic spell from the Final Fantasy series. It usually deals Earth-elemental damage to one or all opponents, and may not affect flying enemies, depending on which game it is. In the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, it has two stronger versions, Quara and Quaga.
Generally in games where the Earth element exists, the counter-spell Float is available to avoid taking damage.
Quake, also known as QAKE in the Famicom release, is a level 6 Black Magic spell which attempts to swallow all enemies into the ground, defeating them instantly. Flying enemies, the Undead and bosses are immune to this attack.

Quake is a Black Magic Level 7 spell that causes earth damage. Only the Jobs Black Mage, Magus, Sage, and Onion Knight can use this spell. It can be bought in Doga's Village and in the Invincible. It's also cast by the Earthen Drums item.

Quake is the initial spell of the Earth materia, costing 6 MP to cast and dealing minor Earth-elemental damage.

Quake is a form of Ancient Magic. It is a high level, long casting form of Elemental magic available exclusively to Black Mages. It will do massive damage to a single target. Ancient Magic scrolls drop off of Black Mage-type beastmen enemies, generally.
Kytes can learn two Earth spells; Stone which does average damage and Stonega which deals heavy Earth damage to all surrounding enemies. The Esper Hashmal's ultimate ability is called Stoneja.
A Blue Magick learned from Golems, Quake inflicts earth-elemental damage to all units in a small area. It is also notable for being the only Blue Magic capable of linking with Magick Frenzy.
Quake is cast by stacking Fire and Raise. It causes a pillar of rock to erupt from beneath the enemy, sending it flying into the air and inflicting a stun effect after landing.
Quake is the strongest Black Magic in the game, attacking all enemies with Earth-elemental damage. Only Benjamin can learn it.
Quake is an HP attack for Onion Knight in which he stabs the ground with his swords and spins rapidly, causing spikes of earth to erupt under the opponent.

On October 15, 2006, at 7:07am (local time), an earthquake rated at roughly 6.7 on the Richter Scale struck near the Kona/Waikoloa side of the Big Island, the largest and southernmost island of the Hawaiian chain, followed by a 6.0 aftershock.  Witnesses recount that the earthquake lasted 'about a minute' . No deaths have been reported. Structural damage was reported on the Big Island, although the island of Oahu, where Lost films, was distant enough to report only minor damage. A Pacific Basin-wide tsunami alert was raised and subsequently dismissed very quickly by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. In later examination of records, a 4-inch tsunami was measured in the nearby Kawaihae Harbor of the Big island .
Approximately 20 minutes after the main quake, the entire island of Oahu experienced a power outage, as well as parts of the Big Island, Maui, and Kauai. Power on Oahu was completely restored by 1:55am , with isolated exceptions . On the Big Island, there were several landslides and damaged roadways, as well as evacuations reported by two local hospitals , as well as various homeowners . On October 17 Governor Linda Lingle officially declared a disaster, and President Bush declared a "major disaster." By October 18, damage estimates on the Big Island reached $74 million, and federal aid was still delayed .
The impact of the earthquake and its aftermath upon the production of Lost appears to be negligible. Grass Skirt Productions, Lost's production company, normally does not film on weekends, and was not filming on the Sunday of the earthquake. Power has been restored on Oahu where Lost is filmed, and the locations film crews are largely powered by their own portable generators. In contrast to the damaged bridges and roads on the Big Island , Oahu's transportation infrastructure appears to have emerged unscathed, and structural damage appears to be minimal. While there has been no specific news on the condition of Lost's soundstage facilities at Hawaii Film Studio, most locations slated for filming are therefore probably unaffected, and delays in episode production are unlikely.
Film crew "basecamp" signs (see photo) have been spotted the Monday morning of October 16, so filming appears not to have been delayed on the day after the earthquake. Later in the day, an ABC spokesperson confirmed to Broadcasting & Cable that Lost was proceeding as scheduled . Jorge Garcia has reportedly posted thank you notes to concerned fans in the VIP section of The Fuselage forums.
The Manoa Valley Inn, a filming location for Lost on numerous occasions , suffered a collapse of its exterior stone chimney . Although several people were home at the time of the quake, no one was injured. However the structural damage was not covered by insurance .
Quake is a berserker. When he enters a battlefield, he will not rest until anything and everything within sight is in smoldering ruins, including his own comrades. It will often take cries of protest from fellow Decepticons to "point the other way, you idiot!" to remind him to pick his targets more selectively. This, he claims, is just part of one of his unconventional "battle techniques."
Quake can become so caught up in the battle frenzy that his systems can overheat and shut him down. His endurance is second-to-none, however, and he has pulled through even the seemingly final of defeats.
Quake survived the battle against the planet eater Unicron and was present during the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons on the planet Klo, where he blasted Blaster in an ambush. As he's not seen afterwards (yet Blaster is, nice shot there, Quake) he probably didn't fare too well against the ambushed Autobots.
Quake was among the Decepticon warriors who attacked Hydrus Four with Bludgeon, assuming control of the Nucleon production facility in the hopes of reviving Megatron. They captured the Dinobots easily enough, but a full Autobot task force soon followed, and the Decepticons were overwhelmed and defeated.
Miraculously alive and well, Quake was serving on the bridge of the new Warworld Bludgeon had constructed for raiding other ships in space and stocking up on resources. He was also part of the raiding party which landed on Earth, and enjoyed spreading chaos and destruction among the humans. During a Cybertronian Empire attack on the Warworld, Quake was quickly destroyed.
With the emergence of the Wreckers, Mutants, and Dinobots on Vehicon-controlled Cybertron, Megatron needed more generals to counter the insurgents. He picked the sparks of Quake and Blastcharge, who served Megatron's namesake well, and put them in new Vehicon bodies and gave them experimental drones to command.
Quake and Blastcharge followed Primal Prime's group to the lair of the recluse spider Arcee, but got there too late to catch up with the main force. Blastcharge shot Fractyl, who had stayed behind to talk to Arcee. Quake rumbled that the Predacon was only worth five points for being "a half-pint loser" rather than the ten Blastcharge claimed, leaving two drones to clean up the mess as they went to hunt down the other Wreckers.
The two arrived at the Wrecker's destination, a shuttle hangar, right in the middle of a battle between the small force and a horde of drones led by Spy Streak. Quake was not impressed with many of the Maximals' small size, and chose to taunt the relatively tiny Tigatron. This was a mistake. Tigatron opened his chest, and with the awesome elemental powers of the Vok, Quake was destroyed. (Anybody else sensing a trend here?)
Quake became a member of Ratbat's faction of Ultracons during the Dark Ages. He was present at the near-signing of the tri-faction peace treaty, and engaged the Predacons in battle alongside many other Autobots and Decepticons after the bombing.
Quake served with Headstrong's ground troops on-board the Decepticon starship Thanatos, under the overall command of Razorclaw. They joined the Autobot Wreckers in confronting Thunderwing on Cybertron.
