Blind (ブライン, Burain?), also called Darkness (暗闇, Kurayami?), Dark Blin, Blindness, is a common recurring status effect from the Final Fantasy series. It can also refer to the spell, which causes such an effect. A blinded character is inaccurate with their physical attacks and will often miss the target, but the effect does not interfere with spell casting. In most games, it can be cured by using Eye Drops and/or a spell that heals status ailments.
In earlier games, Blind is indicated by dark circles or sunglasses covering the afflicted unit's eyes. In 3D-rendered games, the status is usually indicated by the darkening of the afflicted unit's model, or the appearance of black smoke in front of their face.
The related Pain status completely disables the target's usage of physical abilities.

Blind causes afflicted units to miss more often, reducing their Hit Rate by 40. In addition, targeting a blind character with a physical attack will increase Hit Rate by 40. It can be cured with the Eyedrops item or the White Magic spell Blindna, and is inflicted through the physical attacks of Shadow, the spells Dark and Blind, and the attacks Snorting, Ink, and Flash.
Blind is healed by Eye Drops and the spell Blindna. Monsters affected by Blind have their Accuracy and Magic Accuracy halved.
Blind (originally called Darkness) it halves a character's Accuracy and Evasion, as well as magic spells' accuracy. It does not affect the accuracy of abilities classified as monster magic, nor the magic spells cast by weapons and items.
Blind halves a character's Accuracy and Evasion, as well as magic spells' accuracy.
The player is able to make use of Blind by casting Flash, attacking enemies with a Darkness Bow, or via some other methods, such as mix skills. A character under Blind has their Hit Rate reduced to a quarter and cannot use the Aim ability.
The Blind status ailment is glitched in the original versions, due to the Evade bug. However, it does prevent Strago from learning Lores. Several special attacks such as Edgar's Flash and Strago's Bad Breath can inflict this status.
|Reflect???||Lore||Inflicts Blind, Silence, and Slow on all targets with Reflect.|
|Bad Breath||Lore||Inflicts Blind as well as a myriad of other statuses to all enemies.|
|Flash||Tools||Inflicts Blind on all enemies.|
|Disaster||Enemy Attack||Inflicts Blind as well as a myriad of other statuses on one or all party members.|

|Trine||Enemy Attack||Inflicts Blind and Silence on the party.|
|Vanish||Enemy Attack (Dummied)||Inflicts Blind as well as a myriad of other statuses on the caster.|
Darkness is only usable by enemies, though the player can inflict the status through the means of the Ink item. It is of little tactical use, as most enemies do not suffer from the status. Darkness halves the physical accuracy of weapon-based attacks, but due to a bug, the status only affects the commands Attack, Morph, Deathblow, Mug, Slash-All, Flash, 2x Cut, and 4x Cut. Because enemies do not use the above commands they are unaffected by it, making inflicting opponents with the status pointless.
Inflicting enemies with the Fury status is the only way to hamper an enemy's Hit% but this is difficult since Hypers cannot normally be given to enemies (can only be done by Confused characters), and there are no attacks in the player's possession that can inflict the status to enemies.

Acrophies has in its arsenal one of the rarest abilities, the Isogin Smog that inflicts the Darkness status to the player party, but will only be used by Acrophies if the entire party is already under the Darkness status. If Acrophies uses this attack more than once, it might crash the player's game. Since Acrophies has no other abilities that induce the Darkness status, the Ink item will have to be used on all party members to see this attack naturally.
Darkness reduces a character's Hit Rate by 75%. Characters with base hit rate of 255% are unaffected, such as Squall and Seifer. However, Blind disables the gunblade's trigger making them unable to deal additional damage.

The Darkness status overrides the Accuracy and Evasion stats and lowers the chance of attacks and skills landing to 10%, before Luck is taken into account. Darkness lasts for a certain number of turns depending on the attack that inflicted the status effect (usually three), but can be removed earlier by using Eye Drops, Remedy or Esuna.
Wakka's Dark Attack and Dark Buster can inflict this status and deal damage. Having a Luck stat of 90 or more higher than the target's Luck will result in the status having no effect, since the accuracy is high enough to withstand the handicaps.
Also weapons with Darktouch or Darkstrike will also cause Darkness, while armor with Dark Ward and Darkproof will prevent it. A party member can also use a Smoke Bomb on an enemy to also inflict Darkness.

Darkness reduces the odds of successfully connecting with a physical attack. Some fiends inflict the status with their regular attacks. The player can inflict it through the Darktouch auto-ability or by using the Dark Oil medicine. It can be healed with the Vision Ale and Esuna Salve medicine or by the White Mage's ability Esuna. The auto-ability Darkproof makes the character immune to the status.
Blindness is a dark elemental status effect that is caused by many effects, including the enfeebling Black Magic spells Blind and Blind II and the Ninjutsu spells Kurayami: Ichi and Kurayami: Ni. It decreases accuracy and ranged accuracy. It is cured with the white magics Blindna or Esuna, the Dancer job ability Healing Waltz, the wyvern ability Remove Blind, the Monk job ability Chakra, the Summoner Blood Pact Spring Water, or the items Eye Drops, Remedy, or Catholicon. The Resist Blind trait and the effects of the white magic Barblind and Barblindra improve blind resistance a little.
There is another blinding status effect known as Flash. It is inflicted by the divine white magic Flash. It has a more potent effect but a much shorter duration. Both blind and flash may be present on the same target. Abilities that remove spell effects such as Erase are required to remove Flash, but it has such a short duration that this is rarely necessary.
Besides the normal accuracy lowering effects, blinding certain monsters prevents the use of certain gaze attacks; in particular, the Peiste family's petrifying Grim Glower and terrorizing Oppressive Gaze effects may be prevented or ended by use of Blind.
The character is veiled in darkness, reducing chance to hit. Remove with Eye Drops.

The Blind status not only decreases a unit's Evade by 20, but an attacking unit's Accuracy is reduced by 50. It can be inflicted by a number of skills, including the Archer's Blackout, the Gunner's Blindshot, and the Elementalist's Shining Air.

Non-Final Fantasy appearances[edit | edit source]
Kingdom Hearts series[edit | edit source]
In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days certain enemy attacks can cause the blind status, causing most physical attacks by the player miss for a short period of time. Equipping flower elemental rings like Flowers Athirst will help lessen or eliminate the chance of blind. Blind also appears in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, blinded enemies will either go in random directions or attack other enemies. Blinded characters will only have the area immediately around them visible. Shotlocks and Lock-on cannot be used while blinded.
