Item magic is a form of magic usable in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years that is an alternative to casting Black Magic or White Magic. Instead, item magic is cast by use of certain weapons, and accessible from the item menu.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Item magic is cast by using certain weapons from the Item menu during battle. The weapon must be equipped and spells cast from weapons do not cost MP. All spells can be reflected, except for the Dancing Dagger spell. Item magic spells only target a single enemy. Item magic's spell names are hidden because when the player uses a item, the name used will be the name of the item, which overrides spell names.

In the 3D PC version, an item's spell is cast by selecting the Items option during combat, then Reequip and selecting the weapon one intends to use as if going to swap it for another one. Instead of selecting another weapon, or a blank space to unequip it entirely, selecting it again will prompt the player to select the target for that item's spell.
