Description

The bearer of this certificate has become a veritable inventory ballista and is deemed worthy if the title of Master Ninja.

Mastery certificate description

The Ninja is a job class in Final Fantasy III gained in the hidden land of Eureka in the NES version, and from the Earth Crystal in the 3D versions. Ninjas can deal massive damage by throwing weapons and specialized projectiles at the enemy. In the 3D versions, Ninja is weaker than in the original version to be equal to other jobs. Ninja is considered to be a powered up version of the Thief. With its high agility, Ninja has many attacks at a slightly lower attack strength, dealing the same damage as a mid job level Knight when first converted.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

NES version[edit | edit source]

  • Special ability - None

Ninja lacks a special ability but it can equip almost every weapon. The Ninja can equip Shuriken as normal weapons, which is consumed after the next use of the Fight command. Shuriken is the disposable equivalent to the Onion Sword, therefore, a fully equipped Onion Knight is technically the strongest physical class.

3D versions[edit | edit source]

Ninja can throw any weapon in the party's inventory; this is the only way to use Shurikens, which are no longer equippable. Upwards of 10,000 HP of damage can be inflicted this way, although the game will always display such damage as 9,999.

Throw damage and hit rate are determined by the following formulae:

Throw Damage = (Weapon Attack x 2.5 + 100) x (100 + JobLv) x 10 / 99 x Random No. between 1.0 and 1.8
Hit Rate = (95 + JobLv / 22)%
