Wizards are an uncommon enemy type encountered in Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
In his efforts to find his brother, Malik (now possessed by Ratash, the Prince scales the terrace of Solomon's Palace. At the highest post within the palace, he encounters the Wizard, who materializes at the top of a balcony.
Wizards generally pose no major threat the player if they remain specially aware of their location at all times. If the player attempts to jump toward a ledge where the Wizard is located or nearby, the chances of being hit with their blast attacks is likely.
However, to attack the Wizard and reach the other ledge required to progress through the game, the player need only to use the dash attack, which will kill the wizard instantly. It should be noted that if the player uses the water ability, a Wizard's attack may be able to be blocked.
