Additionally, there are several other Dark Magic spells with varying effects. As the masters of dark magic, Dark Knights have access to nearly all dark magic spells, with subsets of these spells available to Black Mage, Scholar, Geomancer, and Red Mage.
Dark Magic skill determines the accuracy, potency of some but not all, and spell interruption rate of Dark Magic spells. Dark Magic does nothing for the potency of Absorb spells, but does affect accuracy and duration.

- Dark magic skill bonuses: Directly adds to the player's dark magic skill (see table below)
- Dark magic casting time reduction: Reduces casting time of all spells classified as dark magic by the percentage listed, stacks with other forms of casting time reduction such as Dark Arts and Fast Cast
- Spell-specific bonuses: Many specific types of dark magic spells (Absorb spells, Drain/Aspir spells) are further enhanced by individual pieces of equipment such as Vicious Mufflers or Hirudinea Earring.
