Foie or foi (Japanese: , possibly from German Feuer, "fire") is a basic damage technique common to Phantasy Star games.
Phantasy Star series
Phantasy Star II
In Phantasy Star II, foi costs 2 TP to cast. It deals 12 to 17 damage to a single enemy, with a 90% chance to hit.
Rolf, Anna, Amy, Hugh, Kain, and Shir are the only player characters who can use foi. Rolf, Anna, Kain, and Shir already know foi when they join the party. Amy learns foi at level 5, and Hugh learns foi at level 9.
Phantasy Star IV
In Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium, foi costs 3 TP to cast. It deals fire damage to a single enemy equal to 24 plus the caster's mental stat, modified by the enemy's fire sensitivity and mental defense stat. Slugs, clawed flies, mermen, zombies, rappies, and monsters in Dezolis and Myst Vale are especially sensitive to fire damage.
Foi can be combined with a zan type technique or a hewn skill in any order to do a fire storm combo, or with a wat technique and Chaz's tsu technique in any order to do a triblaster combo, or used after Wren's burst rockets skill to do a shooting star combo.

Foie takes the form of a ball of fire that shoots out from the caster's weapon or hand and flies straight forward until it strikes its target. As technique levels increase, the damage the tech deals increases, its range increases, and the speed at which the tech travels increases.
All beginning forces start with level 1 foie.
All foie spells, being fire-based techniques, deal increased damage but offer no bonus status effects.
The Fire Scepter:Agni and Red Merge boost all fire techniques by 20% when equipped. Clubs of Laconium and Foie Merges boost foie by 30%. The Hildebear's Head offers a 40% boost to foie. FOnewearls get a 30% boost to foie, except in the Dreamcast versions.
