This article is in need of a few pictures. Perhaps you can help by uploading a picture of NES images with black lines on each weapons, remake images with iOS/PSP weapon models.

Weapons in Final Fantasy III can be equipped on both the left and right hands. When dual-wielding, the attack ratings of each weapon are added together for the overall attack rating of the character.

In the original NES version, some elemental weapons are glitched.

Legendary Blacksmith weapons only exist in the 3D version.

Except thrown weapons, daggers are the only type of weapon that Thieves can equip. Most daggers add to the Agility statistic. The Red Mage is the only magic-using job that can equip daggers. Black Mages, however, can only equip the Knife and Dagger.

FFIII Icon Bow.png
FFIII Icon Arrow.png

Bows and arrows are the primary weapons of Rangers and must be equipped separately in the right and left hands. Bows give stat bonuses, while arrows carry the additional effects, like elemental damage and inflicted status ailments. Bows and arrows are effective against enemies weak to Wind.

Since bows and arrows deal the same damage from the back row as they do from the front row, and since the weaker bows are available to Black Mages, the player can equip a Black Mage with a bow and arrows to make them a decent physical damage dealer if the need arises. The player can place the Black Mage in the back row for reduced damage, since the armor available to magic-using jobs does not offer as much physical defense as that available to melee jobs.

Harps[edit | edit source]

FFIII NES Harp Icon.PNG
FFIII Icon Harp.png

Harps are the primary weapons of Bards. They are meant to boost magic rather than attack the enemy. Three of the five harps the Bard uses with Attack command can inflict status ailments at the enemies.

In the NES version, the confusion-inflicting Lamia Harp is bugged and won't inflict the status. Moreover, the sleep-inflicting Dream Harp is nowhere to be found and can only be obtained through the item upgrade glitch.

In the 3D versions, different harps play a different song when using the Sing command.
