Final Fantasy Wiki

A master swordsman who follows the proud and ancient way of the blade. Wielding a katana for offense, and with a broad array of armor at his disposal, the Samurai makes for a fitting vanguard in any party.


Samurai appears as a playable character in Final Fantasy Record Keeper. It is a Core class, unassociated with any specific title.


As with all Core characters, the Samurai is a subpar character, with poor stats, limited Soul Breaks, and limited versatility. While the Samurai does have some niche use for crowd control due to several Samurai abilities that strike all enemies, and a self-healing Soul Break that also boosts its Attack, it is still ultimately ineffectual compared to other, non-Core, characters.
