Dissidia Final Fantasy, Dancer Lore

Dancer (踊り子, Odoriko?) is a job that appears in various games in the series.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Dancers are often characterized as female, and wearing revealing attire. Dancers have been present as non-player characters in several early Final Fantasy games (known as dancing girls), and are usually shown in pubs. Dancers most often equip daggers, such as the Dancing Dagger, which is usually associated with the Dancer class. Their ability, Dance, performs one of several actions chosen at random, and their stats are some of the lowest of all classes. Some Dancers are capable of White Magic.

Mog is a combination Dancer and Geomancer. Mog's Dances are based on the terrain and perform various random attacks depending on which Dance he uses.
