Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[]

An accessory that protects the wearer from attacks that result in death or stone. The gem encased in the middle is specifically what serves to keep death at bay. Some monsters are known for their ability to take a life with a single blow, while other types of wildlife can turn adventurers into stone with their attacks, greatly hindering any efforts to vanquish them. However, this accessory can provide the safety needed to carry out such a task.


Safety Bit is an accessory that provides 3 DEF, as well as immunity to Petrify and Instant Death. It can be bought from the Fat Chocobo at Sorcerer's Hideaway for 50 Star Quartz, and only one may be acquired.



  • The Safety Ring is an accessory in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It acts as a combination of the Safety Bit and the Ribbon; thus, it protects against all status ailments and Instant Death. A functionally similar accessory called the Safety Badge exists, but unlike its counterpart, the badge protects against everything but Instant Death.
