that is a neat idea. That way dispel would be used to interrupt your party to cast a spell also.
Another option is make dispel also work in a way that when used on a character besides clearing every shield/buff, it gives the sprite or the girl also "magic recoil".

Moon Saber (or all sabers, really) is easy to get rid of -- switch weapons. Lunar Magic isn't gonna do much either, since it can actually RESTORE HP/MP to your entire party. MP Absorb is gonna be annoying.
But this'll make Mana Beast challenging -- Make him cast Lucid Barrier instead of Wall. In short, the only way to damage Mana Beast is to use Dispel on Mana Beast, and then have Randi damage it in the short window before Mana Beast casts Lucid Barrier again. Coincidentally, this'll give Popoi something to do in the final battle.
Of course, you would need to make it so that Dispel Magic actually gets rid of Lucid Barrier.
I just saw this post, my bad.
Oh damn, didn't really think of that. It kinda takes away from the gigas bosses also being able to do that, maybe in the future when that gets "fixed" I guess. One way would be if Moon saber gets casted on your sword you will have either to use light saber back if you wanna keep using the sword, a herb, or switch to another weapon, but even if you switch back to the sword the effect wont be removed till it gets naturally or via some saber magic/herb item.
I was thinking of making Lunar magic more useful. And yeah that's the thing with mp absorb, and the theme behind an undead enemy - steal your lifeforce in form of HP and MP, should be difficult to kill them, and why I thought of him using spells like these anyway, freeze, earth slide, thunder storm are redundant for him to use when he has dark force of similar power or evil gate, buff himself up with Moon energy which you may wanna use dispel or his physical based attacks will be a pain in the ass.
That would be cool, Mana Beast fight with the barrier instead of wall. Barrier, dispel and lucent beam should be enough for him, or if I wanna be a little unfair, add a fourth spell like flame saber on himself, fitting for a dragon engulfing your party with his attacks, so you may wanna have some engulf resisting ring equiped. While hid dispel could undo your mana sword magic, buffs.
Makes more effective uses of equipment and strategy to fight them.
