Dark Elemental (ダークエレメント, Dākueremento?), also known as Dark Element, is a recurring element in the Final Fantasy series. It is an Elemental which does not have any specific elemental affinity.


Final Fantasy[]


Dark Elemental is fought in the Dawn of Souls and succeeding releases, only found in Earthgift Shrine, Hellfire Chasm, Lifespring Grotto and Whisperwind Cove. It is found protecting several treasure chests and other tiles.

Final Fantasy V[]


Dark Elemental is fought only in the Advance and succeeding releases. It is located in the Sealed Temple's Ruined Shrine. Dark Elemental notably has four different elemental affinities, which dictate its weaknesses, and whether it will use Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga or Aeroga.

Final Fantasy X[]

Dark Element is fought in the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth. It may cast Reflect on itself, making casting Blk Magic spells detrimental. However, if Blk Magic spells hit, then they can easily defeat it, meaning that it is useful to Dispel it. Due to its tough defense against physical attacks, Armor Break should be used.

Dark Elemental is fought in the Farplane and Via Infinito Floors 61 - 64. It has relatively low HP, but can deal high magical and physical damage to the party.

Final Fantasy XI[]
