Spellblade, also known as Sword Magic or Magic Sword, is a recurring command ability, usually associated with the Mystic Knight class. It allows characters to cast spells to their swords in order to give physical attacks elemental, status, and other properties.
In the DS version, Cid Pollendina has an ability called Upgrade, which allows him to use certain battle items to give his hammers elemental properties. This could be considered a rough example of the traditional Spellblade ability.
The Spellblade ability is the command ability of the Mystic Knight class. Each level allows for new spells to be taught. Most Black Magic spells can be taught, as well as the White Magic spells Silence and Holy.
Also, there are items equippable that allow for added effects.
Red Mages learn six 'En' spells fairly early on, which add extra elemental damage to every physical attack.
Also, either through the dances of Dancers or some equipment, one can apply an Aspir/Drain/Light/Dark effect to their attacks as well.
Beowulf Cadmus can use Spellblade with his special Templar Class. The spells are not offensive Black Magic, but instead more powerful versions of Mystic Arts spells, which inflict a myriad of status effects. Beowulf must be wielding a sword in order to use Spellblade.
The Gladiator job class can use Spellblade Tech. This command contains physical attacks and elemental attacks. This ability may have inspired Final Fantasy V 's Gladiator's Finisher command, which executes a very powerful elemental physical attack.
