Final Fantasy XII

The Bonecrusher is a Technick in Final Fantasy XII. The Technick costs 30 LP, and can be found in the lower right section of the License Board, along with other Technicks. The Bonecrusher sacrifices the user's HP to kill one targeted foe instantly, however, there are chances of failure and bosses are immune to it. If the Technick misses, the user will die.

The damage sustained by the user is:

Self DMG = 0 ~ (User's Own HP-1)[1]

In the International Zodiac Job System version, Bonecrusher is used by five job classes: the Machinist, Monk, Mononofu, Shikari and Uhlan. However, the Uhlan and Mono must first acquire the License for the Esper Hashmal. The Technick is found in the Henne Mines Phase 1 Dig.
