Cleaves all enemies in two.


Oblivion, also known as Cleave,[1][2] is Cyan's level 70 Bushido technique in Final Fantasy VI. It requires eight charges, and when used, inflicts instant death on all opponents. Oblivion works on all enemies, including undead, that are not immune to instant death, and has a very high hit rate.


Oblivion is learned by Cyan at level 44, or after defeating Wrexsoul.

Gogo can also use any Bushido techniques that Cyan has learned by equipping Bushido in Gogo's ability menu. This allows Gogo to use Oblivion.


Oblivion has a hit rate of 182. It works against all targets, stalls an enemy's final attack for one turn, but fails on targets immune to death.


Oblivion can be used in normal battles against any enemy formation that does not include enemies immune to death. The problem is that, because it takes eight ATB charges to use, most battles will simply end before Oblivion can be used. As such, it is simpler to use Tempest, which takes half the time to charge, and has a chance to end the battle the same way and achieve the same effects.
