Dark (ダーク, Dāku?), also known as Darkness, is a recurring, low-level spell in the series. It inflicts minor Dark-elemental damage and is a basic spell much like Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, and Water. It has three upgrades in the form of Darkra, Darkga, and a stronger version in the form of Darkja, which is usually an enemy ability.
Though it has at times been named "Dark" in English, the spell "Blind" is an unrelated ability and a status spell that blinds enemies.

Bravely series[edit | edit source]
Dark is a recurring Black Magic ability in the Bravely series.
In the original Bravely Default and in Bravely Second, Dark appears as a level 6 Black Magic spell. Both appearances have the attack dealing major dark magic damage to one target. The spell could also be used as a Sword Magic ability, imbuing the user's weapon with a high-power dark effect for ten turns.
In Bravely Default II, Dark is the first job level ability for the Arcanist asterisk. Due to the inclusion of the -Ra and -Ga tiers of Dark spells, Dark now deals a moderate dark-elemental magic attack on a target or all targets on the field.
