Final Fantasy Tactics description

Doom (死の宣告, Shi no Senkoku?), also known as Death Sentence, Count, and Condemned, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It inflicts the Doom status. The spell animation usually features the Grim Reaper or a skull.

## Appearances

### Final Fantasy IV

Doom is cast by the Plague Horror,the Ahriman, and Zeromus An interesting fact is that getting hit by Doom when already under its effect will reset the character's remaining time to the base amount, stalling the character's death. Neither Haste or Slow affect the countdown, as the ATB bar runs off a completely different counter.

Up to two enemies can be inflicted with the Doom status by design as this spell is reflectable. In the SNES version, a character has to take a turn before the KO status is inflicted on an enemy.

#### Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Doom is cast by the Ahriman, the Ghost Train and Malboro Menace, and functions similarly to the previous game. The ATB bar (and its speed modifiers) is now properly programmed to work in conjunction with the Doom countdown.

### Final Fantasy V

Curses one enemy to die in 30 seconds.

Description

30 seconds to live...

In-battle text

Doom is a Blue Magic spell for the Blue Mage. It can also be inflicted through one of the Oracle's abilities, but the Oracle's version tends to be a bit faster. It uses the Grim Reaper sprite in its effect.

An interesting trick to use end game is to use it on King Behemoths in the final dungeon, since the Oracle's version does not count as a spell, thus preventing the King Behemoth from using Meteor and killing it in roughly ten seconds while the party avoids significant damage. It costs 10 MP to cast, and can be learned from the enemies The Damned, Unknown, and Death Dealer, as well as the bosses Exdeath and Azulmagia.

The player may utilize this ability by catching and releasing a Jackanapes, The Damned, skull Unknown, or Death Dealer.

Description

### Final Fantasy VII

Pronounces death sentence on any one opponent

Description

Death Sentence is an ability for the Enemy Skill Materia. It can be learned from the enemies Gi Spector, Sneaky Step, and Boundfat, and inflicts the Death Sentence status, in which a timer appears over the victim's head (60 seconds normally, 30 seconds if under Haste), and once the timer hits zero, the spell will attempt to inflict instant death. It costs 10 MP to cast.

### Final Fantasy VIII

When Doom is cast, a mirror appears in front of the doomed character, and the Grim Reaper appears on its surface shining its red eyes before the mirror shatters. It costs 12 MP to cast and has a 25% accuracy. It can't be reflected and works with Return Magic.

### Final Fantasy X

Doom is one of Kimahri's Ronso Rage Overdrives. It can be learned from any of the Ghost-type fiends, or from Biran Ronso. This version of Doom is notable as it never misses on vulnerable targets and works on almost every enemy, including Nemesis in the Monster Arena. Though the stronger the target, the higher the counter starts at, taking 200 or so turns to count down from the most powerful enemies.

#### Final Fantasy X-2

Doom is available to the Dark Knight as part of the Arcana command, requiring Bio to be mastered, taking 20 AP to master, and costing 18 MP to cast. It can also be used by equipping the Bitter Farewell Garment Grid.

### Final Fantasy XII

Doom is an enemy ability used by Gespenst, Gazer, Etém, Nightwalker, Reaper Claw, Reaper, Necrophobe, Bogey, Oversoul, Wraith, Deathscythe, Ixtab, Demon Wall (Outer), Demon Wall (Inner), Ahriman, Glaring Eye, Dustia, Ishteen, Vorres, and Negalmuur. It inflicts Doom at a 70% chance to one target in a range of 10, and can be used even when under Silence.

### Final Fantasy XIII

Doom is a spell used by Eidolons, but only when they are first summoned by their respective l'Cie. It is cast immediately on the l'Cie at the start of the battle against his/her Eidolon. Once under the Doom status, the l'Cie must defeat and tame the Eidolon before the count reaches 0, or the battle will be lost. In addition, some bosses, such as Barthandelus, cast Doom after 20 minutes of battle.

Orphan will also cast Doom at the start of the battle but the counter is set to 4200 instead of 1700. There is no way to heal Doom, but it can be momentarily halted by summoning an Eidolon, as the counter won't deplete during summon time. The amount of given time depends on the battle speed, which can be adjusted in the config: in the fastest setting the character has 1700 units until instant death will hit, and in the slowest setting the time is 3600.

It should also be noted that bosses that have the Doom spell will not cast it on the player if their TP gauge is above 3 (and therefore able to summon an Eidolon). This only applies, though, to bosses in which the criteria to cast Doom is HP left.

#### Final Fantasy XIII-2

Doom can be cast by Gorgyra and Long Gui. It will KO the affected character(s) when the timer runs out.

Gorgyra's Doom counter starts dangerously low, at just 1000, but will disappear should a party member die of another reason before the counter reaches 0. This allows the player to revive the fallen party member without the counter reappearing.

Long Gui will only cast Doom should the battle go on for more than 20 minutes.

#### Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Bhunivelze casts Doom at the start of the final battle. He only casts it in his first form, and it is dispelled when the phase ends. Bhunivelze+ casts Doom at the start of the final phase giving a time limit staggering him. Doom is dispelled as soon as Bhunivelze+ is staggered.
