Final Fantasy Wiki

Perform magical chants with different effects.


Sing is the level 3 ability of the Bard job class, as well as their default command. It is disabled if the user is silenced. The ability performs one of a variety of songs.


Sing is learned at level 3 as a Bard, for a total of 175 AP (100 AP from level 2). It is also the Bard's default ability, meaning it can be used at any point.

The songs themselves are acquired at various points throughout the different worlds. Some can only obtained in the first or second world.


While the effects of some songs are instantaneous, other songs are ongoing, meaning the Bard will continue to sing until he or she is hit by an attack, killed, petrified, or silenced, though in most cases the song's effect will remain even after the Bard stops singing.

With the stat-raising songs, the singer keeps singing while the party members' stats gradually increase to 99 or 255, depending on the version of the game being played, and the singer cannot do any other actions. Taking damage or being silenced stops the song, but characters inflicted with the zombie status still continue to sing. The other songs work instantaneously.
