Description

Jive (おどる, Odoru?, lit. Dance) is an ability exclusive to Calca in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It can be described as a mixture between the Blue Magic and Dance abilities. It works by casting an ability used by monsters but, unlike Blue Magic, the abilities do not need to be learned in any way and are cast randomly. Jive has a Charge Time of 3.
