Appearances[]

Final Fantasy V[]

Uses bubbles to surround and damage all enemies.

Description

Aqua Breath (also known as Aqua Rake) is a Blue Magic spell that deals non-elemental damage to all enemies. It also deals 8x damage to desert monsters. It is powerful enough to kill Sandworm in a single hit, and Landcrawler in three. A Blue Mage may learn Aqua Breath from the Dhorme Chimera, Manticore, Leviathan, Bahamut, Azulmagia, Water Crystal, Enuo, Gogo, and Aquagel enemies. It costs 38 MP to cast.

When used against desert monsters it uses the following formula:

The player may utilize this ability by catching and releasing a Dhorme Chimera, Moogle Eater, Rajiformes, or Aquagel.

Final Fantasy VI[]

Aqua Breath (also called Aqua Rake) is one of Strago's initial Lores. It deals Wind-elemental damage in addition to Water damage. It hits all targets, costs 22 MP to cast and has a power of 71 and hit rate of 150. It is one of Strago's most powerful and useful spells, as it hits hard and is MP-efficient.

Final Fantasy VII[]

Aqualung is an ability used by a number of enemies. It is a Water elemental ability that inflicts major magic damage to all enemies. It is first used by the Harpy in the desert in the Gold Saucer Area, and can be fatal for an unprepared party. It is also used by the Jenova∙LIFE boss at Forgotten City, and the Serpent on the Sunken Gelnika.

Since it is Water-elemental, Aqualung can be resisted, nullified, or absorbed with the right set up, and it can be sent back in the direction of the caster if the intended targets have the Reflect. Aqualung's spell power is equal to 3.25x the base magic damage.

Aqualung can be learned as an Enemy Skill. It costs 34 MP to cast. If the entire party has the Reflect status, it can be cast on the party to reflect onto the enemy party a total of three times. This, along with the fact that few enemies have Water resistance, makes this Enemy Skill very effective against bosses and strong enemies.

Final Fantasy VIII[]

Quistis can learn Aqua Breath from a Water Crystal. Water Crystals can be mugged from Fastitocalon. One Water Crystal can be refined from one Fastitocalon card, or from five Fastitocalon-F cards, using Quezacotl's Card Mod ability.

Its magic power differs depending on the Crisis Level:

  • Crisis Level 1: 50
  • Crisis Level 2: 70
  • Crisis Level 3: 80
  • Crisis Level 4: 100[1]

Final Fantasy IX[]

Causes Water damage to all enemies.

Description

Axolotl uses Aqua Breath.

Aqua Breath is an ability used by Axolotl and Quale. It has a 50% hit rate and often misses, and costs 14 MP to use. It can't be reflected and works with Return Magic. Instead of doing fixed damage, Aqua Breath will deal damage equal to 1/4 of the target's Max HP, essentially making it a Gravity type spell, which also means it never works on bosses.

Quina can learn Aqua Breath as a Blue Magic from the Sahagin, Axolotl, and green Vepal.

The damage formula for Aqua Breath is as follows:[2]
