Appearances[edit | edit source]
Palom and Porom can cast Comet as a Twincast spell. Using the Stardust Rod or the Stardust item can also cast Comet in battle. Comet is essentially a weaker version of Meteor and deals non-elemental damage to all enemies. It has a casting time of 0, a spell power of 80 (180 in 3D versions), and costs 20 MP in 2D versions (50 in 3D versions) to use, deducting MP from both users of the Twincast command. It is used roughly 1/4 of the time in 2D versions. The spell is classified as a Black Magic spell in the 3D remakes.
The animation for Comet is unique to all entries related to Final Fantasy IV. Since the spell was first used in the series by two child characters, Comet's animation is designed to be cute, causing small five-pointed stars to shower down upon the enemies, rather than the realistic interpretation used in later titles.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
meteorite is a solid piece of debris, from such sources as asteroids or comets, that originates in outer space and survives its impact with the Earth's surface. It is called a meteoroid before its impact.A
comet is an icy small Solar System body (SSSB) that, when close enough to the Sun, displays a visible coma (a thin, fuzzy, temporary atmosphere) and sometimes also a tail. These phenomena are both due to the effects of solar radiation and the solar wind upon the nucleus of the comet.A
