Blizzard (ブリザド, Burizado?), also known as Ice, Ice 1, and Blizzard 1, is a Black Magic spell in the Final Fantasy series. Usually it is the basic Ice-elemental spell, and does minor Ice-elemental damage. Blizzard has also appeared as an entirely different attack usable by enemies, though later releases renamed the ability Snowstorm or Icestorm to differentiate between the two.
It is called Hielo (ice) in Spanish versions, Eis (ice) in German versions, and Crio (Greek for ice), Bufera (blizzard) in Italian and "Glacier" (icicle) in French.

Casting blizzard-type magic sends the battle area into a blizzard and inflicts Frost status on party and enemies alike. When cast on a body of water, everything is frozen in place, including enemies. If the player is standing on a rock in the body of water when they cast it, they remain unaffected and can thus focus on the immobile targets. Another way to avoid the freezing water is to use blizzard when standing right next to the target so Noctis will throw the flask while doing a backflip and he lands on the freshly-frozen ice.
