When cast, masses of lightning infused with corrupt darkness will gather around the selected enemy target, and thereafter explode violently to inflict damage upon them. It possesses the highest base Might of all tomes in the game.

Non-Canon Appearances[edit | edit source]
Goetia is a variation of Robin's Down Special, Nosferatu, in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Goetia has a higher grab area than Nosferatu and deals more damage. It retains Nosferatu's property of being more effective if used from the enemies back, however it lacks Nosferatu's healing effect.
Goetia appears in Warriors as the Strong 3 attack for Leo and Elise, as well as the Strong 6 attack for Tharja. For the Nohrian siblings, it covers a large area around them with spikes, impaling any nearby enemies, then spins around and bursts, but with Tharja, it manifests as a dark magic spheroid construct cracking with dark energy, then she summons a hand to crush it, detonating the spell.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Goetia, derived from the Greek word for "sorcery", refers to a practice that involves either the invocation of angels or the evocation of demons. Usage of the term in English is largely derived from the 17th century grimoire The Lesser Key of Solomon, where a certain Ars Goetia encompasses its first section.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, Goetia's tome cover is the same tome cover as Nosferatu.
- Tharja's version of Goetia in Warriors is essentially Robin's Rexaura with different animations.
