An extremely powerful, yet underrated black magic spell that damages enemies as well as the magic casters and their accompanying party members. The spell typically is an explosive non-elemental "meltdown" derived from fire, wind, and dark elements. Casting Merton is quite a useful way to eliminate enemies quickly provided you cast "Reraise" or "Autolife" on your characters to resurrect them after the explosion. Merton spells typically let off a "screeching" roar as they destroy everything in their path.
Merton is featured in several "Final Fantasy" games, namely Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy VIII. It is also featured in other RPGs such as "Rudra no Hihou." Final Fantasy is a trademark of the Square-Enix Company, a popular manufacturer of video games.
