I couldn't miss the chance to practice my drawing!
Oh, shut up and help me remodel the Null Physical page!
Null Physical (物理無効, Butsuri Mukou?), also known as Null-Physical and Ethereal Mantle, is a recurring positive status effect in the series. It is the opposite of Null Magic in that it completely negates all physical damage.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
The Null Physical status in the 3D version is set by the Lunar Curtain item, granting immunity to physical attacks, making all physical attacks automatically miss. It can be Dispelled, and can also be removed by Black Hole.
Yuna's special dressphere, Floral Fallal, can learn Shield, which makes the user immune to physical damage. The Psychic dressphere has the ability Physics Guard which nullifies all physical damage done. It takes 80 AP to learn and Magic Guard must be mastered.
Magick Wall (referred to as Paling in-game) is an enemy augment that provides immunity to physical damage for about two minutes. It can be used by Deathscythe, Deathgaze, Wild Malboro, Trickster, Behemoth King, Shadowseer, Exodus, Zodiark, Luxollid, Vagrant Soul, Avenger, and Doctor Cid (both fights).
The Force Barrier and Perfect Defense technicks also grant Magick Wall.
Ethereal Mantle is a synthesis ability that negates all physical damage taken by the character, but makes them unable to be healed from damage or status with magic. It is obtained by equipping five items of the Ultimate Physic group. As only Hope and Fang have weapons in the Ultimate Physic synthesis group, they are the only characters that can obtain Ethereal Mantle.
