"Help" description in Final Fantasy X-2

Sentinel in Final Fantasy X.

Sentinel (鉄壁, Teppeki?, lit. Iron Wall) is a defensive ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is often an ability associated with characters from Final Fantasy X, allowing the user to defend their allies from enemy attacks with increased defense.

Despite sharing the same name in most English localizations, the Sentinel ability that is often associated with the recurring Paladin job is not the same skill in the Japanese releases.


Final Fantasy X[]

Sentinel is a Special ability found near the end of Auron's section of the Sphere Grid. It is an improved version of Guard, with the user taking a defensive stance, thus receiving less damage from the attack.

Final Fantasy X-2[]

Sentinel is available on the Warrior dressphere, costing 20 AP. The user remains immobile until their ATB bar refills and all physical attacks cause only 1 HP damage, but full damage is still taken from magic.
