Pain is an ability used by the aeonAnima. The player gains access to this ability when summoning Anima with Yuna. Pain is Anima's special attack that inflicts Instant Death and also deals damage to the few enemies immune to death spells, often 99,999 with high enough stats. It is a Rank 6 command, which means it has double the recovery time of a normal attack.
During the battle with Seymour, Anima can use the Pain ability to inflict instant death on all who are not immune to it. Pain can also be used by Belgemine's Anima.
Dark Anima has its own version of Pain which functions the same as an ordinary Pain, except it cannot be avoided and bypasses immunity to instant death.
