Dark Elemental is an enemy in the Advance and succeeding versions of Final Fantasy V. It is found in the Sealed Temple, a bonus dungeon that is unlocked after beating the game. There are four versions of the Dark Elemental, three enemy encounters with different elemental weakness, and a fourth type that appear twice in the boss battle with Grand Aevis.





Grand Aevis


The regular Dark Elementals have different elemental attributes, split between Fire, Ice, and Lightning. Each uses the highest level of the elemental spells. It can also use White Wind to heal its allies. The Dark Elemental is weak against the element it carries; e.g. a Dark Elemental that casts Firaga is weak to Fire.

The two Dark Elementals that accompany the Grand Aevis are of the Wind element. The same attribute on regular enemies applies to the Dark Elementals here; while they can cast the two Blue Magic spells, White Wind and Aeroga, they are weak against Wind. It is best to kill them off before the Grand Aevis as they are annoying healers, however, they will respawn when the Grand Aevis is hit.

Should a Necromancer land a finishing hit on a Dark Elemental after defeating Enuo, they will learn the Dark Arts spell, Deep Freeze.
