Spell (まほう, Mahō?, lit. Magic) is a command in Final Fantasy Mystic Quest that allows the user to use spells found in the schools of magic. The magic system doesn't e MP, but instead Magic Left and all spells cost 1 to cast.

Magic works differently than with other Final Fantasy games. Magic is not bought or learned as Benjamin levels up, but is learned by finding spellbooks around the world. There are twelve spells divided into three schools of magic. At the maximum level 41, Benjamin can have 43 White, 21 Black, and 10 Wizard spells. While Benjamin can learn all spells, allies have their spells set and cannot learn more through gameplay, although their repertoire have increased in the space of their absence between their first and second appearances in the party.
