Cure (ケアル, Kearu?), also called Cure1 and Cure 1, is a recurring spell from the Final Fantasy series. Cure is the most basic of White Magic spells and restores a small amount of HP. In almost all Final Fantasy games, Cure and its stronger variants can be used to inflict damage on the undead.
Although called Cure in English, the Japanese name of the spell more likely derives from the English word Care. The English word "care" is standardly transliterated into Japanese as ケア (kea?). The powered-up spell, Renew/Full Cure, is known as フルケア (Furu Kea?, lit. Full Care) in Japanese, choosing to drop the ル (ru?) to stick to the four-character Japanese naming scheme. Abilities that are derived from the English word "cure" (キュア, kyua?) appear in Mix commands and deal more with removing statuses at the same time (e.g. Cure Blind).
