"Paradigms...can be compared to Final Fantasy X-2's Dresspheres and Garment Grids, but it is one."

This sentence in particular does not make sense, especially the last bit. One of what? Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 21:31, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

I think it means that like the dressphres, paradigm set the abilities but the roles can't be changed independently.Redeemer & Destroyer 21:43, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

I can't compare what you wrote to what it's written. It could be done better without a forceful comparison. - Henryacores^ 21:45, February 9, 2010 (UTC)


Just a mention in the page, or a For the Paradigm Shift, see x. BLUER一番 16:32, April 6, 2010 (UTC)


Can I take out all that Japanese text from these tables and dump them on the FFXIII translations page? Pretty please? With a cherry on top? Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 23:15, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

Yes please with mangoes :D 8bit 01:36, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
Please no. It should be tabularized. BLUER一番 04:15, April 15, 2010 (UTC)
I'd love it if the Japanese stays. Part of what makes it all interesting, y'know? Course, dumping them in that translation page (which is craptastic by the way) is ok, but the Japanese should be retained here for info purposes. BLUER一番 04:36, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

Battle QuotesEdit

The characters have various things they say when executing a Paradigm Shift, like "Switchin' the play" or "Let's try something different." Would it be all right to add these to the article? Agent0042 03:28, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Actually I suggest create the template:(character)/quote with each different type of quotes grouped in respective named parameters. This will alow easy transclusion of the character quotes and managing all quotes in one single template page. -- Inpursuit 06:16, September 30, 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I'll start gathering the information and when it's ready, I'll set that up. Agent0042 02:25, October 1, 2010 (UTC)
{{Lightning/quote}}, there you have it. It should be quite easy to edit the template even without the knowledge of Wiki parser functions. Note that you need to "edit the whole page" rather than edit the subsections, they're there just for confirming if the template works properly. Also important that the parameter entry is case-sensitive, but you can always add extra valid entry options in the template just in case. -- Inpursuit 06:46, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Final Fantasy XIII-2 with Final Fantasy X-2 mechanics Edit

FFXIII-2 role pages? Edit

I changed the role links for Medic and Synergist to match the majority in jumping directly to the FFXIII page, but I don't know where that leaves the FFXIII-2 role pages. Maybe link them from the FFXIII role pages? --EskayFlying 01:25, March 31, 2012 (UTC)

Character descriptionsEdit

What happened to the descriptions of how a character performed in the paradigms? I found them interesting. Sanokal K-T (talk) 05:02, October 11, 2013 (UTC)

See the individual role articles for the AI mechanics if that's what you mean. Looking at the article history nothing major doesn't appear to have ever been omitted from here.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 09:07, October 11, 2013 (UTC)
Nah, what I was referring to were sort of like "evaluations" of how characters performed for each Paradigm. For example (and I'm paraphrasing here) "Lightning's high Strength and Magic make her a decent Commando, though her lack of the Adrenaline Auto-Ability hinders her total damage output", or "Hope's capabilities as a Saboteur are limited due to only learning the 'ga' spells." I mean, now that I think about it, those are probably partially on the main character pages, and were probably taken off here because they may have been based on opinion. I was wondering, though...

FFXIII-2 Paradigm NamesEdit

I wonder if in the Japanese version of FFXIII-2 Paradigm names were changed or not since they did change "Optima Change" to "Paradigm Shift". They might have changed the names of some Paradigms for FFXIII-2 as well.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 06:51, October 20, 2014 (UTC)
