Creates illusion of one's self to confuse the enemy.
Mirage (ぶんしん, Bunshin?, lit. Clone), also known as Image, Twin, Target Dummy, and Mirror (かげぶんしん, Kagebunshin?), is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is a Ninjutsu spell, and acts similar to the spell Blink, creating two illusory copies of the caster to render them immune to the next two physical attacks targeted at them, each attack instead dispelling one of the copies.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Mirages are naturally-occurring, optical phenomena in which light rays are bent to produce displaced images of distant objects. The word "mirage" is of French origin and derived from the Latin mirari, which means "to look at" or "to wonder at."
