Every video game that has a magic system will have a wide variety of spells. These spells can range from simple attacks to powerful world-ending attacks. What are the most powerful spells? Here, we’ll take a look at some of the most powerful spells in video games.
These spells will consist of those that you can cast yourself. Sometimes a villain in a game might have the most powerful spell, but you won’t be able to cast it personally. For example, although Sephiroth can cast the powerful Supernova spell, you won’t be able to. We’ve left these unobtainable spells off of this list.
8 Ultima (Final Fantasy series)
First, we have Ultima. This is a recurring spell that appears in the Final Fantasy series, with its first appearance in Final Fantasy 2.
This spell will hit all of your enemies ignoring their defense and any other protection they may have. The visuals for this spell are also exaggerated, showing an explosion-like dome on the battlefield. In some Final Fantasy games, Ultima is not available for casting; instead, powerful enemies will throw it at you.
seven Vampire Lord Transformation (Skyrim)
Thanks to the Dawnguard DLC in Skyrim, you will have the chance to get acquainted with the Volkihar vampire clan. While completing quests, you can choose to become a vampire; if you do, Lord Harkon will give you the power to become a vampire lord. With this ability, you can now transform into a Vampire Lord while exploring Skyrim.
The Vampire Lord gives you access to new traits and combat modes. In addition, you will be able to bite your enemies, which kills them quickly. In the form of Vampire Lord, you become unstoppable. There’s also no limit to how long or how often you can transform into a Vampire Lord.
6 Meteor Shower (Guild Wars 2)
Guild Wars 2 is a long-running MMORPG, first released in 2012. There are several classes in the game that use magic, but Elementalist takes the cake for one of the most powerful spells. Meteor Shower is a staff-based skill that creates an AoE for meteors to rain down from the sky.
When you first explore Tyria as an Elementalist, Meteor Shower is one of the best spells you can cast to wipe out groups of enemies. Although the spell has a long cast time, you will only have to cast it until the meteor shower visuals appear. Once it’s done, you can break the plaster and the meteors will continue to rain down.
5 Bolide (Dragon’s Dogma)
Bolide from Dragon’s Dogma is another meteor-based spell, but flaming chunks of rock raining down from the sky are bound to be incredibly strong. Bolide is a spell that summons meteors from the sky, inflicting physical and fire damage.
There are three levels of Bolide; normal, high and large. With Grand Bolide, you can summon 15 meteors to rain down on your enemies. The combination of fire and physical damage in a large AoE makes this an incredibly powerful spell. This spell has a radius of two meters and can reach behind you to hit all enemies hidden in your sight.
4 Lava Explosion (World Of Warcraft)
World of Warcraft is filled with countless classic spells and abilities. Lava Burst is one of those powerful spells, which can be cast if you are a shaman. With it, you’ll summon molten lava to fly towards your enemy, dealing fire damage. If your enemy has Flame Shock, this molten lava will deal even more damage.
In addition to inflicting a lot of damage, this spell will always inflict a critical hit. Overall, watching molten lava fly towards your enemies is quite satisfying.
3 Azure Comet (Elden Ring)
By playing Elden Ring, it is possible to completely ignore magic and face your enemies in a more physical way. Many spells are simply not comparable to physical attacks, but Comet Azur stands out.
Comet Azur is the most powerful spell in the game, allowing you to summon a giant comet that deals a lot of damage to an enemy from a distance. Along with this high damage, Comet Azur has some nice graphics, sending a wide beam of blue light towards your enemy.
2 Godspeed Strike (Bravely Default 2)
Next we have Godspeed Strike from Bravely Default 2. This is a thief skill that deals physical damage to an enemy based on your speed. Additionally, Godspeed Strike will do damage over time. It may sound simple, but at high speeds you can deal an insane amount of damage.
The Thief class is already quite fast, so using Godspeed Strike is the best way to mow down your enemies. Many online gamers all agree, “when in doubt, use Godspeed Strike”.
1 Summon Bahamut (Final Fantasy series)
Bahamut in Final Fantasy 3
Finally, we have another Final Fantasy spell. Throughout the Final Fantasy series, you can summon Bahamut. It is one of the best-known summons in the game series. Often, Bahamut also appears as a powerful enemy that must be defeated.
Bahamut, who first appeared in Final Fantasy 3, can cast Megaflare. This is a very powerful spell that usually deals heavy non-elemental damage. Although this spell is modified between each game, its strength is undeniable.
