Poison Breath (ポイズンブレス or 毒ブレス, Poizun Buresu or Doku Buresu?), also known as Poisonbreath and Venom Breath, is a recurring enemy ability in the series. It is often a powerful Poison-elemental attack that targets the entire party and inflicts the Poison status. In Final Fantasy XI, it is also a Blue Magic spell.

Poison Breath is a Blue Magic spell learned from Hounds. It deals water damage to enemies within a fan-shaped area originating from the caster with an additional poison effect. It costs 1 Blue Magic Point to set. When set, it grants MND +1. It takes 3 seconds to cast and can be recast every 19.5 seconds. Blue Mages can set Poison Breath along with certain spells to create the Clear Mind combo.

The formula appears to be:

(Current HP)/10 + (Blue Mage level)/1.25.

For example, at level 22 and 400 HP, damage is approximately 57 with no other bonuses applied.
