Blue Magic Guide
by Lassarina Aoibhell
This is a guide to Quina's Blue Magic in Final Fantasy IX. Quina learns Blue Magic by using his/her Eat command against enemies. If the enemy's HP is low enough, Quina will Eat the monster and learn whatever Blue Magic it has to teach. (If you've already learned the creature's Blue Magic, or if it has no Blue Magic to teach, Quina will declare "Taste bad!") This guide indicates the spells, their cost in MP, what they do, and what enemies Quina can eat to learn it. I have made it as accurate as I can, but please let me know if I've made an error.

Quina's Level x Number of Frogs Caught.
Therefore, if you had caught 50 frogs and Quina was at level 30, Frog Drop would do 1500 points of damage.
