Gauntlet (鎧袖一触, Gaishū Isshoku?, lit. Armor Sleeve Single Blow), also known as Purification, is a recurring ability that originally featured in Final Fantasy VII. Gauntlet has various different effects in its different appearances, although it more often than not refers to dealing physical damage, using a Gauntlet to deal damage.
Gauntlet is Yuffie's first level 3 Limit Break. It is unlocked after killing 64 enemies as Yuffie on level 2. It is a large bomb that hits all enemies, inflicting 13⁄4 times normal damage, and is always a critical hit that ignores defense. After using it six times in battle, Doom of the Living is unlocked.
Gauntlet is usable by Yuffie. It is one of her Ability cards, and is also used in three different Legend cards. The Ability card is an SSR card in rarity, while the Legend card is as an SSR, SSR+ and UR+ in rarity.
