Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII description.

Equilibrium (アンビバレンス, Anbibarensu?, lit. Ambivalence) is a recurring job class in the Final Fantasy series. It first appears in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII where it is worn by Lightning, who receives it from the god Bhunivelze after her awakening.


Lightning dons a black chestpiece with a high collar with a bare back strapped on belts. From the lower parts of the chestpiece there are two symmetrical white capes with pockets. At the top sides of the chestpiece there are silver pauldrons, and the upper part of her arms are covered with red straps adorned with silver pieces. From the pauldrons hang two symmetrical white capes. The inside color of the capes on both, upper and lower, pauldrons is red. Lightning wears red and black boots that reach the half of a thigh, and black gloves.


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII[]

The Equilibrium is the default garb for Lightning that she receives from Bhunivelze after he makes her the savior. It allows her to start battles with a full ATB gauge. The Equilibrium comes with a locked Attack Lv. 1. At the start of the thirteenth day, a chest appears in the Ark where an upgraded form of Equilibrium, known as Equilibrium+, can be acquired replacing her default Equilibrium version.

Lightning has a second variation, called Lighting #2, that acts as the main representative of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, in which she wears her Equilibrium outfit, and can be available from the start by transferring save data from the second demo. However, if the player did not select either among their party of four, or download the demo, she can later be unlocked by collecting Green Crystal Shards. Lighting #2 is Balance-oriented and her Limit, Army of One, deals damage based on her Strength, Agility, and Stamina.

Equilibrium is the condition of a system in which competing influences are balanced, resulting in no net change.

In the Japan, this garb is known as "Ambivalence". Ambivalence is the coexistence of opposing attitudes or feelings (such as love and hate) towards a person, object, or idea.
