5 Most Ridiculously Over-the-Top Spells from Final Fantasy

Categories: Gaming

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.

Frog Flare (Chrono Trigger)

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.

Ark (Final Fantasy IX)

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.

Chrono Trigger is NOT an FF. That's why it's Chrono Trigger, and not, oh, I don't know... Final Fantasy.


I'm so tired of people bashing FFVIII. I Love that game!
