Stun (STUN on the NES) is a level 6 Black Magic spell which always inflicts Paralysis on a single enemy that has 300 HP or less, unless they resist the status element. The spell can be bought at Crescent Lake and can be learned by the Black Mage and Black Wizard. In the GBA/PSP/mobile releases it costs 20 MP to cast. Stun can be cast by Dark Wizard and Marilith.

Final Fantasy II[]

Paralyzes foes.


Stun is a Black Magic spell which inflicts Paralyze on one or all enemies. The success rate increases with the spell's level. As with all spells, any character can learn Stun by having them use the Stun Tome (Stun Scroll in Final Fantasy Origins). The spell Stop can also inflict Paralyze on a target.

Stun is a harmful status effect and spell that completely prevents the affected enemy or player from acting for a very brief time. Any spell or weapon skill being readied as Stun takes effect is interrupted, making it invaluable against some of the more dangerous enemies.

Dissidia Final Fantasy[]

Stun is a Brave attack for Shantotto. It does no damage but casts instantly and stuns the opponent, disrupting their current action. Shantotto learns the attack at Level 29. It costs 20 CP to equip and 120 AP to master.

Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy[]

Stun is one of Shantotto's Brave attacks, it has increased range and enables her to combo into her other attacks. It now costs 30 CP to equip and 80 AP to master. Shade also appears as a spell selectable during Onion Knight's Spellbook EX Burst, but it does nothing at all.
