Mog and his Dance skills.

Once selected, these commands are used continuously until the end of battle.

Dance and Rage, Adventuring School

Dance (踊り, Odori?) is Mog's special ability in Final Fantasy VI. 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.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

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 dies. If the dance is of a terrain different from the terrain the party is fighting on, the terrain will change to that of the dance. If Mog is not on the original terrain for the chosen dance, there is a 50% chance Mog will "stumble" on his first attempt in a battle.

Mog learns new dances by fighting in different areas. If Mog ends 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 danced during the battle. For example, successfully dancing the Earth Blues in a desert will change the desert to a mountain. This means both that, if Mog is killed and revives, dancing the 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 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.
