Abilities

This section discusses the various Abilities in Final Fantasy X. Note that Auto-Abilities are not covered here, but rather in the Equipment section.

In the tables, Rank is the action's recovery time. Higher ranks mean it will take longer for that character to get a turn after using that action. MP is the MP cost. Grid indicates which character's section of the sphere grid the corresponding Ability Node is located (Standard Sphere Grid only). Aeon gives the Items needed to teach Aeons the ability (but remember some abilities cannot be taught to Aeons).

Note that all physical abilities (except Aeon-specific attacks) have a power of 16, so that will not be listed.

Triple Foul
Rank3GridWakka
MP24AeonsSkill Sphere ×4

Deals physical damage to one enemy and inflicts it with Darkness, Silence, and Sleep with a 100% base chance each for three turns. Each status is calculated separately, meaning that one of the statuses failing to set does not affect the chances of the others doing so.

Causes entire party to immediately Escape from battle without fail, unless the battle cannot be Escaped.

Attempts to Steal an Item from an enemy. The chance to succeed is initially 100%, and is divided in half each time a Steal (including the stealing component of Mug) succeeds against that enemy (so 50% after one successful Steal, 25% after two successful Steals, 12.5% after three successful Steals, etc.) If the user has Master Thief equipped, a successful Steal will always return the Rare slot; with Pickpocket, 50% Common and 50% Rare; and with neither, 75% Common and 25% Rare.

Use
Rank2GridRikku
MP0AeonsNo

Uses a Use Item.

Luck
Rank2GridRikku

Lancet
Rank2GridKimahri
MP0AeonsSoul Spring ×20

Absorbs a small amount of HP and an equal amount of MP from one enemy and gives it to the user (effect is reversed if the enemy is a Zombie). If used by Kimahri, he will also learn the Ronso Rage the enemy carries, if any.

Guard
Rank3GridAuron
MP0AeonsNo

Causes the character to intercept all single-target physical attacks directed towards the party until the user's next turn.

Sentinel
Rank3GridAuron

Causes the user to Defend status and intercept all single-target physical attacks directed towards the party until the user's next turn.

Spare Change

Allows you to choose an amount of Gil to throw at an opponent. Every 10 Gil thrown will increase the damage dealt by 1 point.

Threaten
Rank3GridAuron
MP12AeonsNo

Inflicts Threaten status on one enemy, preventing it from acting until the user's next turn.

Provoke
Rank3GridTidus
MP4AeonsNo

Inflicts the Provoke status on one enemy, forcing it to attack the user (some enemies will use target-all moves or do nothing at all, however).

Entrust
Rank3GridAuron
MP0AeonsNo

Transfers user's entire Overdrive gauge to another character. Any Overdrive gauge over the amount needed to fill the gauge is lost.

Copycat
Rank3GridRikku
MP0AeonsNo

Causes the character to mimic the previous action. The potency and effects of the action are determined by the user's stats and Auto-Abilities. Fails if attempting to mimic a Summon or another character's Overdrive, or if used as the first action in battle.

Pilfer Gil
Rank3GridRikku
MP20AeonsNo

Attempts to steal Gil from an enemy. The chance to succeed is initially 100%, and is divided in half each time a Steal (including the stealing component of Nab Gil) succeeds against that enemy (so 50% after one successful Steal, 25% after two successful Steals, 12.5% after three successful Steals, etc.), and the amount stolen tends to decrease each time it is used on the same enemy.

Quick Pockets
Rank1GridRikku
MP70AeonsNo

Use a regular Item. (This ability has a lower Rank than Item.)

Doublecast
Rank3GridLulu
MP0AeonsThree Stars ×5

Allows user to cast two Blk Magic spells during the same turn. The spells themselves cost MP as usual, and the user can only use spells they have learned. Doublecast always has a Rank of 3, regardless of which spells are cast.

Bribe
Rank3GridRikku
MP0AeonsNo

Attempts to pay an enemy to get it to leave battle. Bribed enemies are considered defeated, and will give Items based upon their Bribe information and the amount of money given. The most accepted (by the FFX community) amount to Bribe is 20x the enemy's maximum HP, which provides a 75% chance of success. If the Bribe fails, the Gil is lost, but any future Bribe attempts on that enemy will still take previous attempts into account (so if you pay 100,000 Gil, fail, then pay 1 Gil, it will be treated as 100,001). The number of Items received increases as the amount of Gil given rises, but with diminishing returns. There is also a significant random factor in the number of Items received.
