Frost (Blaze on the SNES and PlayStation) is an enemy ability that deals Ice-elemental damage to all party members and may inflict Sap. It is used by Bahamut, Blue Dragon, Famed Mimic Gogo, Gorgimera, Jura Aevis, Lesser Lopros, Manticore, Nereid, and Wendigo.
Frost (Freeze in the European release) is a Blue Magic learned by Quina. The spell has a chance of freezing its target and can be learned by eating a Wraith holding a blue candle, a Chimera, or the Crystal World version of Kraken.
When a target is frozen, they are unable to move or act, and if hit by a physical attack, the target will be instantly KO'd. A Fire-elemental spell will neutralize the status, and it can be prevented with the Body Temp passive skill. The spell has a 30% accuracy and costs 8 MP to cast.
Agares, Black Waltz 3, Drakan, Hades, Kraken, Kraken (Crystal), and Vepal (Green) use Freeze against the party.
