Symbology (紋章術, Monshou Jutsu, lit. Crest Techniques), also known as Heraldry or Runology, is a recurring ability in the Star Ocean series that consists on the summoning of paranormal effects inside the battlefield via the use of symbols. It is only available to a small number of playable characters, its power depending on the caster's Intelligence stat (INT/MAG) and, when used, costs Mental Points (MP). Symbology has a wide array of effects, such as dealing elemental damage to foes, healing allies or granting bonuses or ailments on characters and enemies.

Symbology, Volumes 1 & 2

Located within the library of the village elder of Marze, the first volume on Symbology states:

The effectiveness of Symbology spells can be increased through repeated use. Over time , a spell can be developed into a truly powerful form.

The second volume reads:

Hasten Speech and Concentration can considerably boost the skill of a symbologist. Hasten Speech can shorten incantation time; Concentration allows for uninterrupted incantations. Symbologists who have acquired these skills will find themselves at an advantage in any batle.
