5 Most Ridiculously Over-the-Top Spells from Final Fantasy
We've been playing the Final Fantasy series from the day the first game hit the ground in America, and magic has always been a big staple of the series. Nothing sells a world of wonder like being able to hurl a lightning bolt, and yet, sometimes they simply go a bit overboard with it. Unfortunately, this has gotten more and more prevalent as graphic technology improves, leading to some truly ridiculous spells.
Yes, Chrono Trigger is a Final Fantasy game, and don't even try to tell us different. Why exactly you suddenly gain the ability to generate a giant magic frog to squash your enemies is never really explained, but that doesn't keep them from upping the ante by having you conjure a giant frog, then setting it on fire.
This is the ultimate summoning spell in Final Fantasy IX, and it makes absolutely no sense. Dagger calls Ark, a ship from the depths of space, who then proceeds to spend around a minute transforming into a giant robot. We could get behind this if the robot then proceeded to do something only a giant robot could do like stomp on the enemies, but Ark just launches missiles, something that regular ships we've already built can do now.
