Adelbert Steiner using Sword Magic in Final Fantasy IX.

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.




Final Fantasy IV

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.

Final Fantasy V

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.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Using Materia Fusion, Zack Fair can create Materia that give him the power to use Spell Blade abilities. These Materia include:

Also, there are items equippable that allow for added effects.

Final Fantasy IX

Steiner can use Sword Magic as long as Vivi is in the party. Abilities become available when Vivi learns the corresponding Black Magic.

Final Fantasy XI

Red Mages learn six 'En' spells fairly early on, which add extra elemental damage to every physical attack.

  • Enfire
  • Enblizzard
  • Enaero
  • Enthunder
  • Enwater
  • Enstone

Also, either through the dances of Dancers or some equipment, one can apply an Aspir/Drain/Light/Dark effect to their attacks as well.

Final Fantasy Tactics

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.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

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.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Spellblade is not the name of the ability, but of a class accessible by the Viera. Their Blade Arts inflict status ailments along with normal attack damage.
