Blue Dragon's corporeal form

Corporeal is a term used when a Shadow is given physical form, unleashing its true power to perform a devastating attack.


Corporeal is the ultimate attack of the Shadows, in which the Shadow separates from its Wielder rising to the sky and gaining a physical body with their full power unleashed. Respectively, each character has their own unique Corporeal attack dealing powerful damage by mirroring their wielder's movements. Once the attack is over, the shadow returns to its wielder and the wielder gains MP equal to the amount of damage dealt.

In order to use a corporeal attack in battle, the Tension bar above the character's name has to be filled and flashing. The bar raises as you attack, are attacked or if an ally is KO'd in battle. In subsequent games after the original, Corporeal took different forms, gained through level-up instead.

In the original Xbox 360 game, Corporeal is first obtained after Shu, Kluke, Jiro and Marumaro lose the ability to use their shadows and magic but regain them after driving themselves to help the people being terrorized by Nene. After battling dark purple copies of their shadows, they are able to use these attacks. Zola obtained hers without losing her shadow when she was separated from the others.
