Fireball (ファイアボール Faia bōru), also known as Fire, is a recurring spell in the Mana series.
Where it appears, Fireball is a basic attack spell whose sole purpose is to deal damage to an enemy. In Sword pf Mana, Secret of Mana, and other games, it is of the Fire element and associated with Salamander, the Mana Spirit of Fire.
Sumo learns Fire from the Mysterious Man. It is a homing attack on a single target.
Fireball is one of six spells usable with Salamando. Popoi can summon the spell at a cost of 2 MP. The spell directs a fireball at one or more enemies to cause damage.
Serving as the most basic of fire spells, Fireball is used by a diversity of boss enemies, including the likes of Genova, Xan Bie, Koren and the Archdemon. This spell can also be learnt by Angela when her Intelligence stat reaches 10 in her initial Magician class.
When cast upon a standalone enemy, the caster will summon three balls of flame, that which will disperse and swirl around said enemy momentarily. They will then hone in and encase him/her/it in a pillar of flame before dissipating.
Alternatively, when cast upon all enemies on the battlefield, the caster will instead summon a multiplicity of flame balls instead, that which will zip around their targets in an animated fashion before honing in and encasing them in a pillar of flame before fading away.
