Black Magic

First game

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Oculus (Japanese: アイボール Eyeball) is a black magic spell appearing exclusively in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. In both games, it is used exclusively by Duma, the game's final boss. In Gaiden, Oculus is a mid-range spell with no special effects; it is the weaker but more accurate of Duma's two spells, and Duma only utilizes this attack when his health is low. In Shadows of Valentia, its range has increased, its power has evened up compared to Ocular Beam while remaining more accurate but also becoming heavier than Oculus Beam, and has gained an additional effect of completely nullifying the opponent's attack. The latter effect is also in Gaiden, but was not explicitly linked to the spell until the remake.
