Final Fantasy Wiki

Mix and fire off explosives that damage all enemies.


Combine is a Cannoneer ability available in the Advance, and the defunct mobile and Steam versions of Final Fantasy V. It is similar to the Mix ability in that the player may mix two items together for various effects and is the offensive inverse to the Chemist. The difference is that Combine requires using either Blitzshot, Buckshot, or Blastshot as an ingredient before using any other item. Ammunition can be bought from the traveling merchant. Mimicking Combine does not use up any items.


Combine is the innate ability of Cannoneers, and usable by all characters equipping the job. At job level 3, for a total of 500 AP (300 AP from level 2), it ca be used by any job.

List of possible combinations[]

Below is the list of different combinations. Each shot can be used with each item in the Mix With column, though the name will be different depending on the shot used (Cannon if the first item was an expensive Blitzshot, Burst if it was a Blastshot, and Shot if it was a cheaper Buckshot).
