Moogle Dance (モーグリダンス, Mōguri Dansu?) is a recurring ability and phenomenon in the Final Fantasy series that involves moogles dancing. Mog in Final Fantasy VI is an optional character whose character class is a mix between Dancer and a Geomancer, able to perform a variety of different dances depending on the terrain. Later dancing moogles have appeared as a callback to Mog, but despite Mog having a variety of skills in his arsenal including offensive ones, the other Moogle Dance skills are supporting abilities.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The moogle's Japanese name, Mōguri (モーグリ), is a portmanteau of the words for mole (土竜, mogura?) and bat (蝙蝠, kōmori?). "Moogle" is the localized version of Mōguri, losing the pun, though "moogle" has started to appear in Japanese sources as well.
