Cid is a physical fighter. He has high strength and stamina but poor speed and his magic stats are the worst in the game, gaining no MP in any version.

Cid's ability is Analyze, also known as Peep and Scan, which functions identically to the White Magic spell Libra, displaying an enemy's HP, MP, level, and weaknesses. In the 3D release, Analyze scans all enemies when used. Cid has an additional ability in the 3D release called Upgrade, which allows him to use an attack item to add its elemental property to his normal attacks; for example, using a Bomb Fragment will make Cid's attack Fire-elemental.
There is an unused command found within the game's data, but it's only named in the original Japanese version, Airship (ひくうてい, Hikūtei?). The command is configured to target all enemies, but the command crashes the game when used. Given the name and positioning in the command list, it was intended for Cid.
Cid may equip axes, bows and arrows, hammers, hats, helms, clothes, armors, gloves and rings. With the exception of the 3D release, Cid's hammers are two-handed weapons and thus he cannot equip shields while wielding one. In both versions Cid joins with a Wooden Hammer and a Prison Garb.
Cid joins the party at Level 34. This Cid is the Cid from the original Final Fantasy IV, therefore, he has the same stats table and the same level up possibilities.
Cid's returns with the Analyze ability and it functions the same way it did in Final Fantasy IV.
In all the 2D versions, the Cid in Ceodore's Tale and the Cid in Kain's tale are different. The former is a guest while the latter is a main character. This is why his HP and MP are not the same: his stats don't carry over and he starts anew.
