Sears enemies with a beam of holy light.

Final Fantasy VI description

Divine Judgment (聖なる審判? or せいなるしんぱん, Seinaru Shinpan?, lit. Holy Judgement), also known as Justice, Holy Judgment, Divine Light, or Divine Wrath, or with its alternate spelling, Judgement, is a recurring ability in the series. It is usually the main attack of the summon Alexander and deals heavy damage to all targets, usually Holy-elemental.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy IV[edit | edit source]

Divine Judgment is an enemy ability in the 3D remake, and is used by the superboss Proto-Babil. It inflicts extreme non-elemental damage to the party, upwards to about 7,000 - 9,999 damage each.

Final Fantasy V[edit | edit source]

Divine Judgment is an ability of the Oracle usable through the Predict command. It heavily damages all enemies and heals the party.

Final Fantasy VI[edit | edit source]

Divine Judgement (originally called Justice) is the attack of the Esper Alexander, which inflicts Holy-elemental damage on all enemies.

Final Fantasy VII[edit | edit source]

Judgement is Alexander's special attack, which inflicts major Holy-elemental damage to all enemies, and is the only source of Holy-elemental attacks for the player. It can be paired with Elemental on a weapon to deal Holy damage without summoning Alexander, but his materia is still required for this.

Final Fantasy VIII[edit | edit source]

Holy Judgment is a Holy-elemental attack that damages all enemies. It is used by Alexander. Alexander's summon time is 22.1s, which, according to the Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, allows the player to boost its damage to around 230% of normal damage using a regular PlayStation controller.

Its damage is calculated as follows:[1]

Elemental Defense starts at 800 (0%), 900 nullifies damage and 1000 absorbs it. If an enemy is shown to be weak against an element, its Elemental Defense is below 800. If damage becomes negative (due to high Elemental Defense), the target is healed by that amount.

Final Fantasy IX[edit | edit source]

Alexander's attack.

During the Battle of Alexandria, Alexander counters Bahamut's Mega Flare with an unnamed attack that greatly resembles his signature ability, Divine Judgement. Countless beams of holy light are fired from Alexander's angelic wings and engulf Bahamut, easily defeating him and stopping his rampage across the city.

Final Fantasy XI[edit | edit source]

Divine Judgment is the ultimate attack used by Alexander, during the final battle of the Treasures of Aht Urhgan storyline. It inflicts very high Light-elemental damage in an area of effect. He uses this ability at 50% health, making it simple to prepare for it.

Final Fantasy XIII[edit | edit source]

Divine Judgement is Alexander's ultimate attack when he is in Gestalt Mode. A hidden compartment opens up in the center of Alexander and shoots lasers on the ground which form an intricate white circle, which then explodes. The damage dealt is weakness-specific.

Divine Judgment raises the chain bonus by an amount based on the attack's level:

Level 1: 8.00 * 1 + 18.00 * 2 + 19.00 * 3 = 101.00[2]
Level 2: 8.00 * 1 + 18.00 * 3 + 19.00 * 4 = 138.00
Level 3: 8.00 * 2 + 18.00 * 5 + 19.00 * 6 = 220.00

Divine Judgement deals more damage based on the target's weaknesses:

  1. If the target is weak to physical or magical attacks the final damage becomes Normal damage * 2.00
  2. If the target is weak to at least one element the final damage becomes Normal damage * 2.00
  3. If the target has either Deprotect or Deshell the final damage becomes Normal damage * 1.89

The effects are cumulative. If the target is weak to at least one element, weak to either physical or magical attacks, and has either Deprotect or Deshell the final damage will equal:

Normal damage * (2.00 * 2.00 * 1.89) = Normal damage * 7.56[2]

"Normal damage" refers to the amount of damage that would have been dealt without the modification.

Final Fantasy XIV[edit | edit source]

Divine Judgement is Alexander Prime's ultimate attack. In order to survive the blast, the party must destroy all of Alexander's summoned minions before the gigantic fortress that makes up Alexander's main body rises from the abyss. Once the fortress is in position a ten second countdown will begin before firing several massive beams from its eyes and engulfing the entire arena in divine light dealing a massive amount of Holy damage. Due to how powerful this attack is, failure to charge up and use a Tank class' defensive Limit Break will result in a total party wipe. If the party survives Alexander Prime will declare the party "worthy" and transform into his final form.

If the party takes too long to defeat Alexander Prime, it will begin a second countdown and fire a second Divine Judgement, this time with no chance of survival even with the Tank Limit Break.
