A being of destruction, hailing from another world where tales are passed down of the Crystals and Warriors of Light. It lives in the hope of returning all the world to nothingness, and is said to appear when the balance between light and dark is upset. When an ancient civilization, far advanced for their time, exhausted the power of the light, the Cloud of Darkness came forth from the great flood of light as it ran amok. It attempted to fulfill its goal of returning the world to nothingness, but the Warriors of Light and the Warriors of Dark, both chosen by the Crystals, defeated it and returned the world to stability.
Cloud of Darkness is a 3-6★ Rare Summon, whose job is listed as Ravager, and whose roles in battle are Physical Damage and Support. She originally could awaken only up to 5★, but received a new form for the Final Fantasy III event The Crystal Tower. She has innate resistance to all status ailments (+10% until 5★, +30% at 6★), and all elements (+50%). Her Trust Master reward is the passive ability Auto-Limit, which increase the equipped unit's Limit gauge by 1 each turn.
Unlike the great majority of units, she is classified as other than Human: Cloud of Darkness is a Reaper, and as such she is vulnerable to Raise-type abilities at the Arena, resulting in an instant KO. In the party, however, she will not take any damage for healing magic and can be revived. Furthermore, while in her original game she is stated to be genderless, here she is classified as a female. As such, she is able to equip female-only equipment and may trigger another unit's Chivalry skill, through which a unit has a chance to protect female units from damage.
Her awakening materials are the following:
- 4★: Allure Powder x25, Esper Cryst x15, Book of Ruin x10, Farplane Dew x5, Sacred Crystal x5
- 5★: Book of Ruin x20, Farplane Dew x10, Sacred Crystal x10, Talmonite of Life x5, Holy Crystal x5
- 6★: Calamity Gem x20, Calamity Writ x10, Rainbow Bloom x10, Prismatic Horn x5, Divine Crystal x5
Cloud of Darkness' stats at her highest levels are as follows (with no passive abilities taken into account), along with the maximum amount of stat points that can be increased through pot-enhancements:
|ATK +20%* Passive||37|
- Ability Awakening
- Limit Burst
Cloud of Darkness's Limit Burst receives three different names, depending on her rarity: Wave Cannon (はどうほう, Hadō Hō?), Particle Beam (超はどうほう, Chō Hadō Hō?, lit. Ultra Wave Cannon), and Perfect Void (完全なる無, Kanzen Naru Mu?, lit. Nothingness Becoming Perfect). A damage-type ability, it is a 1-hit attack that deals physical damage to all enemies. In its 6★ iteration, it has the added effect of inflict them with Blind, which will last for three turns.
Its damage modifier and the chance of inflicting them with Blind will depend on Cloud of Darkness's LB level:
She can equip accessories.
