*** As did the original game - some weapons would randomly cast spells when hitting a monster, others could be used as items to cast a spell (like Heal or Lightning) even by non-spell-casting characters. Leading to wonderful benefits like being able to cast Lit2 on sea monsters as a White Wizard using Thor's Hammer.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' has a job class devoted to making swords Situational, the Mystic Knight/Sorcerer.

*** As did the original game - some weapons would randomly cast ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'': Some Blue Magic spells when hitting have "Level [value]" in their names, meaning they only work if the target has a monster, others could be used as items to cast a spell (like Heal or Lightning) even by non-spell-casting characters. Leading to wonderful benefits like being able to cast Lit2 multiple of the specific Level value. For example, Level 5 Doom only works on sea monsters as targets whose level is a White Wizard using Thor's Hammer.
