Combine items to create concoctions that can be consumed in battle to augment stats or harm enemies.


FFV Mix Icon iOS.pngMix (ちょうごう, Chōgō?, lit. Prepare) is the ability of the Chemist job in Final Fantasy V that allows the player to combine two items to create a new one, usually more potent than the materials alone. Although many items that can be used for mixing can also be used on their own, there are three items specifically for use with the Mix command: Turtle Shell, Dragon Fang, and Dark Matter.

The Mix command is part of the "Mix and X-Magic glitch". One mix, the Kiss of Blessing, can cause the Kiss of Blessing bug.

Regular items[]

As well as special items that can only be made through mixing, the player can mix certain items to get similar items that can be found in shops. These regular items are boosted in various ways, such as a two Potions (50HP each) being mixed to make a potion that heals for 90. This may not seem useful, but it does allow for a character to use two Potions in one turn with only a small penalty. These mixes are buffed by Pharmacology. This may also be useful if the character is a Mime who does not have the Item command available, but does have Mix.
