Fighters are masters of the sword who put offense over defense.


Fighter is a job class exclusive to humes in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.


Fighters use blades and inflict heavy damage both at range and point-blank. A drawback is the Fighter's inability to equip heavy armor.

Fighters are powerful frontline units with decent defenses. Learning three Fighter A-Abilities unlocks the more offensively minded and faster Parivir. Fighters have slightly higher defense and resistance growth than Parivirs, but have lower attack and magick growth.

Fighters aren't as suited to be tanks like Paladins, yet they can be used perfectly as front-liners. Fighters are on par with Moogle Knights and Gladiators as they are the trio offense-defense front-liners. The Fighters average their Speed with their defense to compensate for their slow HP growth.

If a Fighter wears armor that absorbs or is immune to fire, Back Draft will cause no harm to the user (Fighters can equip the Venus Blade, which absorbs fire as well).

One of the known fighters is Bowen, the leader of an elite head hunting clan named after him, House Bowen, who frequently appear in clan tournaments and bear a grudge against Klesta, an oversized Cockatrice who killed Bowen's wife, Friese, and has a habit of fleeing at the brink of being slain.
