  • Level 37 - Dispel
  • Level 68 - Break
  • Level 75 - Quartr
  • Level 86 - Merton

Morph doubles her strength and halves damage to her temporarily. The amount to time she can be morphed for is directly proportional to the number of magic points (not MP, but gained after battle like EXP) she's accumulated since she last used this skill.



Locke the "treasure hunter" can steal items from enemies and in certain parts of the game can change clothes and unlock doors.



Locke tries to take an item from an enemy. If he's successful, you gain that item immediately. This is the only way to get some items in the game.



With the Thief Glove relic equipped, this skill becomes Capture, which is simply attacking and stealing at the same time.

  • Capture appears in later Final Fantasy titles under the name "Mug."

Cyan can use SwdTechs to inflict more damage than he usually would do. Higher numbered techniques will require Cyan to wait a longer period of time.

Gau can use the techniques of any monster he's Leaped into on the Veldt. To gain new rages, simply go there and have him use the Leap command to learn the Rages of both the enemies you currently face and the enemies that you will kill when Gau decides to rejoin the party on the Veldt.



See Final Fantasy VI/Rages

Shadow only has one skill: throw.



He can throw certain weapons and skeans. See Final Fantasy VI/Equipment.

Relm has one skill whose usefulness is mainly based on what she's fighting.



This skill causes Relm to use an ability of the targeted enemy on an enemy.

This skill is also the one that can cause the (in)famous Final Fantasy VI/Bugs and Glitches.



When the Fake Mustache relic is equipped, Sketch becomes Manipulate and gives Relm control of the chosen monster, if successful.



While he has no innate skills, and cannot be controlled in battle, he can gain two through equipping relics.

Blizzard Orb


When equipped with this relic, Umaro will randomly use a blizzard attack that hits all enemies on the field.

Rage Ring


This relic makes Umaro randomly pick up a party member and throw them at an enemy. This attack adds Umaro's Battle Power to the Battle Power of the thrown character to decide the total damage dealt.



Gogo can use almost any named skill (Rage, Throw, Tool, Blitz, Magic, Item, etc.) in addition to his own skill Mimic. (He can also accordingly augment these skills with relics, so as to use Capture instead of Steal, Control instead of Sketch, etc.) To give Gogo these skills, go to his status menu, and press the cursor right. You can then fill the three blank slots below the Mimic skill. Note that Gogo cannot be equipped with any of the following skills: Morph, Leap, Shock, Possess, Magitek, Health, or any of Umaro's moves.



Gogo will simply perform the last action done by a party member in battle. If it is magic, No MP will be spent. If no action has been taken, he will attack as if he had used the Fight command.
