Self-destruct, inflicting damage in the surrounding area.
Final Fantasy Tactics description

Self-Destruct (自爆 or じばく, Jibaku?), also known as Exploder, Kamikaze, Blowup, or Explode, is an enemy ability and a common a Blue Magic spell. It typically KOs the caster while doing large damage (sometimes fire-elemental) to opponents. It is commonly used by Bombs and their ilk. Enemies that self-destruct usually yield no Experience Points, gil, or item drops.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IIEdit

Bomb-types use the Self-Destruct attack to deal massive non-elemental damage to one player, and in turn KO'ing itself. It fails when the enemy is at full HP.

The Damage calculation is:

(RandomNumber[20..40] * Level of Ability ) - Defense of Target

For example, if a Balloon uses Self-Destruct 1, a character with 40 Defense would completely negate the damage done from its attack.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

Bomb-type enemies use Self-Destruct whenever they are not at max HP, damaging one party member equal to 4x their HP when they use the ability.

In the 3D versions, if a Black Belt uses Boost for three consecutive turns, on the third use it triggers Self-Destruct. This version of Self-Destruct removes the attack boost of Boost, and causes damage equal to half the user's max HP.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Bomb-type enemies, Armored Fiends, and Barnabas use Self Destruct when low on health, or in response to magic. Rydia can also learn the Bomb summon, which does damage to an enemy based on her current HP.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Bomb-type enemies use Self Destruct when low on health, or if left alone for long periods of time. The imposter Rydia can also learn the Bomb summon, which does damage to an enemy based on her current HP.

The amount of damage done is equal to the character's max HP multiplied by five, although the attack can be a critical hit.

EtymologyEdit

The attack has also been known by the name Kamikaze. The word kamikaze was used during World War II for Japanese suicide bombers, and means "divine wind". The original kamikaze was when the Mongols sent an invasion force to Japan, but both times the Mongols tried to invade, a typhoon destroyed the Mongol fleet. The Japanese named this wind, kamikaze.

Self-destruct is a mechanism (protocol or device) that can cause an object to destroy itself within a predefined set of circumstances. The self-destruct mechanism is usually the most complete way to destroy the object. For that reason the self-destruct mechanism can be used to destroy objects that are meant to be discarded.
