||Burns a group of enemies enemies with a blazing wall of fire.
||Sends a group of enemies into a state of confusion.
||Unleashes all remaining magic power in a fearsome explosion.

- It is noted many times that Ashlynn is in love with the Hero, saying things such as "Hey Hero, I got a new outfit today. Do I look good in it?" or "Aah love, I know how she feels..." or "If I were her I'd pick you over Buddy, but...", even the Hero's parents compliment them on being a cute couple.
- Ashlynn's presence on Zenithia likely either means the palace still has a connection to the Dream World and the others can still visit her there or that she somehow managed to gain a real body.
