Final Fantasy VI description

Aero (エアロ, Earo?) is the basic Wind-elemental spell. Unlike Fire, Blizzard, and Thunder, it does not always appear, and has been Blue, Black, and White magic.

The spell called Aero in the English version of Final Fantasy VI, is named Aeroga in the Japanese version, even if the lower level versions of the spell are not present. This carried over to Final Fantasy VII, where Aero3 exists as an enemy attack.
