Float in Final Fantasy VII.

Float (レビテト, Rebiteto?, lit. Levitate) is a recurring spell in the Final Fantasy series. It causes the Float status, which is generally used to avoid Earth-elemental attacks in battle while avoiding floor traps and damage floors in dungeons.

There is a different ability in Final Fantasy Legend III with the same English name, which is actually more of a teleportation spell.


Final Fantasy IV[]

Levitates target.


Float (SNES).

Float is a White Magic spell that has a casting time of 1 and costs 8 MP. In the 3D versions, casting Float a second time removes the status. Rosa learns this spell at level 35 in 2D versions, and at level 38 in the 3D versions; and Porom learns it at level 40; while Tellah learns it after Mount Ordeals; and Fusoya comes with it initially.

It avoids damage from the enemy ability Earthquake and allows the party to walk safely on the damaging floors found in the Passage of the Eidolons, Sylph Cave, and some parts of the Lunar Ruins.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-[]

Float is a White Magic spell learned by Rosa (level 35) and Porom (level 40). It grants Float to a single or multiple target at the cost of 8 MP.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years[]

Float can be used by Fusoya initially, while Rosa and Porom learn it at level 40, Ceodore at level 25, and Leonora at level 38. It still costs 8 MP to cast.

Float can be cast by Chrono Controller and Omniscient. The player may utilize this ability by catching and releasing a Gaelicat or Poison Eagle. Aside from its use in battle, Float also allows the party to safely cross damaging floors found in certain dungeons.

Levisalve is a Mix ability used by mixing Antidote and Maiden's Kiss, and acts as the Float spell.

Final Fantasy VI[]

Float (GBA).

Float is an effect spell that costs 17 MP. It can be learned from the espers Quetzalli at a x5 rate or Cait Sith at a x2 rate. It is vulnerable to Runic.

Final Fantasy VIII[]

The Float spell can be drawn from Gesper, Thrustaevis, and Blood Soul. Junctioning 100 Floats to Elem-Def-J grants 50% protection from the Earth element. Float is one of the very few spells that cannot be obtained by refining. Casting Float in battle lowers compatibility with Brothers by 0.4.

Final Fantasy IX[]

Float spell.

Float is a White Magic spell that costs 6 MP. It can be learned from Feather Boots, Lamia's Tiara, and Stardust Rod. Both Eiko and Dagger can use the spell. It can be reflected and works with Return Magic. The enemy Yan uses the spell as a counterattack.

Final Fantasy XI[]

Levitate is a forbidden magic. This much is known only because of a mention that Zonpa-Zippa used it in one of his prototype Cardians to allow it to move by hovering about. What type of magic it is was not specified, but given that Zonpa-Zippa is a White Mage and that Levitate has historically often been White Magic it is conjectured that Levitate is here classed as White Magic.

Final Fantasy XII[]

The Japanese version names this spell "Levitaga" (レビテガ, Rebitega?) to indicate this magick has an area of effect, even though there is no lower tier counterpart.

The Japanese name is levitate. Levitation (from Latin levitas "lightness") is the process by which an object is held aloft, without mechanical support, in a stable position. Levitation is accomplished by providing an upward force that counteracts the pull of gravity (in relation to gravity on earth), plus a smaller stabilizing force that pushes the object toward a home position whenever it is a small distance away from that home position.
