Shock (ショック, Shokku?), also known as Vengeance, is a recurring ability or spell from the series. When used as an ability, it is associated with the Warrior class, but as a spell is generally a high-ranking Black Magic spell.

Appearances[]

Final Fantasy VI[]

Shock in the iOS version.

Shock is the special command ability of General Leo. Gau also has a chance of using it from Yojimbo Rage. Shock deals large amounts of non-elemental magic damage to all enemies, and it also removes the Invisible status if the target had it. Its Spell Power is 128, and it cannot be dodged. Within the game's data, Yojimbo's Shock ability is called Megahit (SNES) and Megashock (Game Boy Advance).

Shock isn't disabled if Leo has been transformed into an Imp. Normally, imp characters cannot use their special abilities, but Leo is a temporary playable character not meant to be playable outside of the battle against Kefka in Thamasa who doesn't inflict the imp status and there's no way to inflict Leo with imp prior to the battle.

Final Fantasy IX[]

Deals physical damage to the enemy.

Description

Shock in Final Fantasy IX.

Shock first appears as one of General Beatrix's abilities in her Seiken skillset. Steiner can learn it as a Sword Art from the Ragnarok. It deals large amounts of physical damage, roughly triple the damage Steiner's normal attack does, usually hitting the damage cap of 9999. It costs 46 MP to use, and is learned for 60 AP. Shock takes on the elemental properties of the equipped weapon (but gains no further boost from Elem-Atk boosting equipment).

The damage formula is:

Shock was an ability in the original version as a spell learned by Conjurers at rank 12 and cost 3 action points to set. It inflicted lightning-elemental damage over time and reduced lightning magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.

An upgraded version called Shock II also appeared as an ability. The spell could be learned by Conjurers at rank 36. The ability inflicted lightning-elemental damage over time at a higher potency and also reduced the lightning magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.
