Flurry, also known as Quadra Slam, is Cyan's level 15 Bushido technique in Final Fantasy VI. It requires four charges, and deals four physical attacks to random opponents, each attack unblockable. Flurry is generally Cyan's strongest ability, useful in most cases.
Cyan learns Flurry at level 15, or after defeating Wrexsoul.
Each of the four attacks from Flurry deal damage with the following formula:
where "Level" refers to the user's level, and Strength refers to the user's Strength.
Flurry deals immense physical damage, potentially defeating an entire enemy group, or devastating a larger single target. Its main drawback is that it requires four ATB charges, meaning its turn-efficiency is greatly reduced. Many normal battles will be over before Flurry can be used.
Compared to other Bushido techniques, Flurry is normally the best choice for Cyan as it fits is effective both against groups and single targets. In many normal battles, Fang may be the simpler choice to deal instant damage. Though Flurry's individual attacks have similar attack power to the attacks of Tempest, Tempest's attacks ignore Defense. However, it is often not worth the additional three charges for the damage boost, and as such, Tempest should only be used against enemies that greatly reduce physical damage.
Because most of Cyan's damage is physical, players should focus on boosting his Strength stat by leveling him up with magicite equipped to boost his Strength stat; as a consequence, Flurry will remain strong.
Due to Gogo's naturally lower Strength stat, Gogo benefits less from using Flurry as opposed to the few magic-based Bushido techniques, but can use Flurry if the enemy resists magic.
