What's our rule? Do we categorise Blue Magic spells here too? And then the regular spells of the game also count as enemy abilities, is our definition of an "enemy ability" an ability only an enemy and Blue Mages can use?  ILHI 19:32, 25 April 2009 (UTC)


So what's our policy on linking to enemy pages? --Ultimateria 05:07, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

???. If you mean in the enemy column of the lists pages, link once on the first mention.  ILHI 16:18, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Create a redirect, or a fresh new page Edit

Do we create a redirect leading here, or do we create a new page that lists everything here? --Silver Mage 12:38, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

We luv to refrain from redirecting to categories. I s'pose we could write an article. Appearances sections. In these sections we could list which enemy abilities are names, and the diversity. So FFMQ has fewer enemy abilities than most games, and most of them are identical with different names. Also, how Blue Magic, Rage, and all that stuff relate to the enemy abilities could take up a sentence. FFIX names all its enemy abilities, but other games do not. Write about that, and link to the List articles. It might also be worth mentioning bugs in attacks if they exist.
The enemy abilities parent article would be the counterpart/parent of the list articles.  ILHI 12:58, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Enemy Abilities' names?
  • Blue Magic, Rage, Lore
  • Diversity
  • Bugs

Gah, I'm really not good at adding content. (It's late, in our timezone at least.) --Silver Mage 14:03, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

No, don't type the enemy abilities are named. In some games, like FFIX, all enemy attacks are named. In other games, only a few enemy attacks are named.  ILHI 15:33, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Separation of Enemy Abilities and Normal Spells Edit

I think that within each list, enemy exclusive abilities should be separated from those shared by the player. Right now this is totally unclear and could be potentially confusing. LordVanya (talk) 13:05, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

Separation could be a bit tricky, seeing how often players can also use "enemy abilities", like Gau's Rage, FFXIII-2 Paradigm Pack, catching and releasing enemies etc.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 15:04, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
