Four or more FFX heroes active in the party: While in Sync Mode, grant the user Bushido Edge Mode.
Bushido Edge Mode: While in Sync Mode, increase the damage of the user's samurai abilities a moderate amount, remove delay from the user's samurai abilities, and cause the third samurai ability used by the user to trigger the follow-up ability Crushing Blaze.
