Final Fantasy V[edit | edit source]

Boomerangs can be equipped by Freelancers, Thieves, Ninjas and Mimes. Boomerangs deal damage based on Strength and Agility, but due to a bug, this only adds 0 or 1 to the damage modifier. Boomerangs only take 50% of the target's Evade into calculations.

FFT Unused In-battle Boomerang.png

Found within the weapons' graphical in-battle sprites within the game's data, there is a unused boomerang sprite located with the various weapon and shield sprites. There is no weapon data for the boomerang weapon type. The reason for why it does not appear within the final product is unknown, but it could be assumed that the developers could not make the weapon return to the owner's hand after being thrown at a target much like how boomerangs behave.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A boomerang is a thrown tool, typically constructed as a flat aerofoil, designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning boomerang is designed to return to the thrower. Boomerangs have been historically used for hunting, as well as a sport and entertainment.
