Once selected, these commands are used continuously until the end of battle.Dance and Rage, Adventuring School
Dance is Mog's special ability in Final Fantasy VI, where he learns different dances by battling on the terrains of different battlefields. When a Dance is selected, Mog will from then on randomly perform one of its four possibile abilities for the duration of the battle.
The Dance command resembles the Final Fantasy V Gaia battle command with characteristics in common with the Dance commands from the same title. Each Dance has a 1 in 16 chance of summoning an animal that resembles the Final Fantasy V Ranger's Animals command.
When Mog selects a Dance, he will randomly perform one of four abilities. The odds that he will perform a certain ability are not equal. When Mog dances, control over him is lost for the remainder of the battle, or until Mog is KO'd or petrified. If the Dance is of a terrain different from the current terrain the party is fighting on, there is a 50% chance the terrain will either change to that of the Dance, or Mog will "stumble" and do nothing.
Mog learns new Dances by fighting in different areas. If Mog wins a battle that currently has a background he does not know the associated Dance of, he will learn it. Mog will not learn a Dance if the unknown background changes due to performing a known Dance during the battle. For example, successfully dancing Earth Blues in a desert will change the desert to a mountain. This means that, if Mog is KO'd and revived, dancing Earth Blues a second time will ensure success, but because the terrain has changed from desert to mountains, Mog will not learn Desert Lullaby.
Gogo may also use the Dance command, but cannot learn new Dances. Gogo only knows the current Dances that Mog knows.
The chances of using a particular ability from a Dance varies. Below is a chart of the Dances, abilities, and chances of using said ability.
Abilities are listed in their order of frequency.
