Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Omega (Final Fantasy V)". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

Stop seems to have no effect (I'm reflecting it off a party member to get around Omega's auto-reflect). Perhaps Romeo's Ballad works, but the Time Magic spell doesn't?

It's worth noting that I'm playing FFV Advance; I'm open to the idea that it might be a SNES vs. PSX vs. GBA thing. Can anyone help confirm or deny this? I don't want to make the edit without knowing I'm saying something true.

Omega has a very high evasion against status magic, and even when Stop DOES work, it only works for a very little bit. Xenomic 19:21, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
To be specific, Omega is level 119 and has 90% magic evade. Against magic that can be evaded, the difference between your level and its is a penalty to the initial roll to hit, and if you hit it has a 90% chance to evade anyway. Stop has a base spell hit of 90, so at level 99 you have a 70% chance of an initial hit, multiplied by a 10% of not being evaded, for 7% overall chance. Omega cannot evade attacks that use the song type, including all bard songs, harps, and bells. While stopped, Omega cannot evade physical attacks (although you can still miss, and Omega is immune to all of the effects that grant automatic hits). All this is accurate for the SNES, other platforms may vary.
