Banish in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy.

Banish (バニシュ, Banishu? or バニッシュ, Banisshu?), is a recurring spell in the Final Fantasy series. It manifests as a projectile of light, or series of projectiles, and deals light-elemental damage.

Banish should not be confused with Warp, a recurring spell that removes enemies from battle by casting them into the Void. In some games, Warp is localized in English as Banish.

Banish and Vanish have the same name in Japanese.

Banish is the first in a series of Light-elemental damage spells available to White Mages and Paladins. It is capable of damaging any creature (with only special exceptions), but it deals 150% normal damage to undead monsters and has a hidden effect of greatly lowering undead creatures' Defense for a brief period of time. Banish is purchasable in all three starter nations for about 162 gil or less, depending upon fame.

Casting Banish with Afflatus Misery active grants a damage bonus to the spell based on the most recent damage taken by the caster. The record of damage taken is reset upon use.

Final Fantasy XIV[edit | edit source]

Banish icon (original).

Banish appeared as an ability in the original version. It was a Thaumaturge spell available for use at Rank 1, cost 3 action points to set, and had an MP cost of 10. The ability dealt astral-elemental damage and reduced the defense on a single enemy. After the release of patch 1.20, Banish; along with Banish II, became unusable by any class.

Banish appears in A Realm Reborn as an enemy ability available to the Light Sprite, Corrupted Sprite and Corrupted Pudding enemies. The ability deals damage to a single target. Banish and Banish III are also available in a usable form as Logos actions, both of which inflict a debuff which increases damage to undead targets.
