Boost in Final Fantasy VIII.

Boost (おうえん, Ouen?), also known as Galvanize and Battle Cry, is a recurring ability in the series that increases the damage dealt by the next attack. Boost oftentimes overlaps with Cheer and Focus.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy III[edit | edit source]

Cheer is a Bard ability in the NES version, which increases the damage done by the party's physical attacks.

Final Fantasy VIII[edit | edit source]

Guardian Forces' attacks are enhanced by Boost via timed button presses. The GFs Diablos, Carbuncle, Cerberus, and Cactuar do not have Boost, since their effects either do not deal damage or do a set amount of damage. A character's compatibility with a GF determines how much they can boost it before the animation ends. Removing Boost with Amnesia Greens is not recommended, as there is no way to regain the Boost ability.

During the summon animation, the player can hold down Select and tap Square to boost the GF to increase damage; the drawback is that if the player fails to boost the GF, it may end up dealing less damage than it would have when not boosted at all. The damage varies between 75% and 250% of the normal damage. The percentage rises when the player taps Square correctly, but drops to 75% if the player presses the button during a time a red cross appears over the cursor. GFs with longer summon animations, such as Eden, are the easiest to boost.
