Reflect acts very much like Aero. However, unlike Aero, it produces a barrier of light for a second that guards from attacks, nullifying all damage, then it goes away. Also, if any level of Reflect successfully guards an attack, it unleashes a spray of light around the dome that does damage equal to the enemy's attack power to anything hit by the light. In fact all attacks can be reflected, with correct timing. The higher level Reflect is, the larger the dome and the spray of light will be.
Reflect and Magnet replaced Aero, Gravity, and Stop from Kingdom Hearts. The Reflect spell only appears in Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix. Although no enemy uses Reflect, both Silver Rock and Roxas use the element of Light, which is present in the spell.
Reflect magic is classified as Defensive Magic.
In Kingdom Hearts II, Reflect acts very much like Aero. However, unlike Aero, it produces a barrier of light for a second that guards from attacks, then it goes away.
In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Aqua uses a similar technique called Barrier. Although Barrier does guard against attacks like Reflect, it cannot guard against all attacks (for example, Aqua cannot protect herself with Barrier against Iron Imprisoner's fire spin attack). Also, Barrier does not automatically counterattack. One must equip the action command Counter Blast to be able to attack with Barrier.
Barrier can have many variations of itself, depending on what command you meld Barrier with, such as Stop Barrier.
