Zan (Japanese: ザン) is a basic damage technique common to Phantasy Star games.
Phantasy Star series
Phantasy Star II
In Phantasy Star II, zan costs 4 TP to cast. It deals 16 to 23 damage to a group of enemies, with a 90% chance to hit.
Rolf, Hugh, Anna, Kain, and Shir are the only player characters who can use zan. Rolf learns zan at level 7, Hugh learns zan at level 18, Anna learns zan at level 32, Kain learns zan at level 10, and Shir learns zan at level 18.
Phantasy Star IV
In Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium, zan costs 8 TP to cast. It deals physical damage to all enemies equal to 16 plus the caster's mental stat, modified by each enemy's physical sensitivity and mental defense stat. Some monsters, including slugs, scorpions and zombies are resistant to physical damage; ghosts, dimensional demons, and some bosses are immune to physical damage.
