Red magic is a damaging form of magic.


Red magic appears as a small, sparkling ball of red energy. In most games, it uses a recolored version of magic’s sprite and/or particle effect.

From Scribblenauts Unlimited onward, it has no visible sprite, but it generates a swirling magic particle effect whenever it moves. This makes it appear as a swirling ball of magic while in motion, but the lack of a sprite can still be seen when it is selected or summoned by the player.


In Scribblenauts, red magic can be summoned through the notebook by normal means.

Like all forms of magic, it is not available in Super Scribblenauts. However, the fireball object in said game has the same effect as red magic.

In Scribblenauts Unlimited, red magic can only be summoned by entering "@red magic" via the '@' method.

Wizard staffs fire red magic projectiles. Outside of Scribblenauts and Scribblenauts Unlimited, this is the only way to spawn red magic.


Red magic disappears when it makes contact with a surface. If it makes contact with an object that can be destroyed, it deals 100 points of damage to said object, enough damage to kill a dragon in two hits.


  • The synonym “Magic Missile”, usable in Scribblenauts, is likely a reference to the basic spell of the same name from Dungeons & Dragons.
