Cry in Final Fantasy IV (iOS).

Cry (うそなき, Usonaki?, lit. Fake Crying), also known as Fake Tears and Tears, is a command ability from Final Fantasy IV used by Porom.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy IV[edit | edit source]

Cry was removed on the SNES North American and Easy Type versions. It was long thought to reduce the amount of time it takes for the party to escape from a battle, but its true effect is to make enemies' steals easier. It has a charge time of 4. In Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection, Cry may inflict Confuse on all foes.

In the 3D versions, it is more useful, as it halves enemies' Defense. Cry can be taught to others through the Cry Augment, obtained in Mysidia from the elder after defeating Cagnazzo. The player must have given either one Augment ability to Porom or two to Palom to obtain the Cry Augment. When equipped on level up after a character has reached Level 71, Cry will grant a bonus of Spirit +1.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-[edit | edit source]

Cry is Porom's exclusive ability. It functions the same way as it did in the predecessor.

Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia[edit | edit source]

Cry is Porom's default ability and at base has 5 uses. It gives allies BRV based on Porom's max BRV, inflicts a defense down debuff on all enemies for 2 turns, gives one stack of Power of White Mage for 6 turns (which raises all party members' attack and can stack up to 3.) If Power of White Mage is at max (3 stacks), Cry turns into Cry+, which decreases enemies' defense further. The 55 Crystal Passive upgrades Cry by granting more BRV to the party, a better debuff of enemies' defense and gives her one additional use of the skill.
