Cheer is a Bard ability in the NES version, which increases the damage done by the party's physical attacks.
Guardian Forces' attacks are enhanced by Boost via timed button presses. Boost costs 10 AP to learn; the GFs Diablos, Carbuncle, Cerberus, and Cactuar do not learn Boost, since their effects either do not deal damage or do a set amount of damage. Removing Boost with Amnesia Greens is not recommended, as there is no way to regain the ability.
During the summon animation, the player can hold down and tap to boost the GF to increase damage; the drawback is that if the player fails to boost the GF sufficiently, 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, and the percentage increases by 1 for each button press, though it will drop to 75% if the player presses the button whenever a red cross appears over the cursor. If the player makes no attempt to boost damage, the attack will deal the default amount, indicated by the absence of a visible number next to the cursor.
GFs with longer summon animations, such as Eden, are the easiest to boost. Boosting is also significantly easier in the original PlayStation version, as the battle UI operates at 60 FPS instead of 15. Although subsequent ports use different control layouts, they still function the same. For instance, in the PS4 Remastered release, the bottom-left corner of the touch pad is held in lieu of .
Boost is a support ability that enhances Dagger's and Eiko's summons, showing the full summon animation each time an eidolon is summoned (apart from the counters during Dagger's Trance). Dagger can learn it for 190 AP, while Eiko can learn it for 150 AP, both from the Pumice Piece. It takes 12 Magic Stones to equip.
Boost is a special ability that comes in three levels of power. During Battle Music Sequences if the player is successful in calling a summon, Boost powers up their attacks up, higher levels of Boost granting a larger benefit. Boost is learned by Cid, Rydia, Yuna and Cosmos at all levels of power.

Ramza also uses Battle Cry as his Burst Soul Break, granting a +50% ATK increase to the party and holy infusion to himself. Its special commands are Warrior's Dance (戦士の剣舞, Senshi no Kenbu?), which hits five times for moderate holy damage without filling his Soul Break gauge; and Warrior's Will (戦士の闘志, Senshi no Tōshi?), which fills up his Soul Break gauge by 180 points.
