Black magic draws its power from the spellcaster's Intellect.

Man in Guera

Black Magic (黒魔法, Kuro Mahō?) is a group of spells in Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light used by equipping Tomes bought from various shops. Black Magic channels the power of the elements to deal direct damage to enemies with the exception of Leaf, Leafra, Leafaga, and Desolator which deals non-elemental damage. Both Light element spells (Thunder and Banish) and Water element spells (Blizzard and Water) are represented with two sets of Black Magic spells.

The distinctions between these set of spells are subtle, but they are present. Compared to the Banish set of spells, the Thunder spells deals less damage but are cast more quickly. The same is true for the Water spells and the Blizzard set of spells. Blizzard spells deals more damage, but takes longer to cast on enemies. All Black Magic spells are compatible in joint attacks except for Desolator.
