While I still think this is totally hilarious, perhaps a little page protection is in order? I could see random people wanting to vandalize this page due to its title.
Agreeded. And wow....Gria is the basterd job. Makes me wonder what strangeness the Seeqs will bring...
I can't believe this; they won't leave it as Bastard in the US and EU versions, no way. Hillarious though.
You do know its named after a Bastard Sword, not the word you're thinking of ~Chocobo Knight

Yeah, I know, just checking. And I agree with what was stated above...it will definitely be changed for English translation! ~Chocobo Knight
What's so bad about Bastards? Me and Leonardo Da Vinci take offense at this whole conversation.
The English name is Ravager[edit source]

Damn you Square of America!
I could take FFX-2, Vaan, Cait Sith, and even the Compilation of FFVII, but this is going too far! How could they?
If I'm not mistaken, Ravager and Bonecrusher (one of this jobs abilities) are both the names of Decepticons from Transformers.
Bonecrusher is one of the constucticons.
There is no Ravager however. You must be thinking of Ravage.I advise everyone to read the TF Wiki. :)

The Full Assault says to have a very potent power that even make the user fall asleep. any one knows if there is a special formula for it?
I don't know the exact formula, but I know it deals equal amount of damage as the Half Accuracy-attacks

I'm quite sure that you're wrong sadly. It sometimes deal less than the attack command or even more but not so high.
Full Assault is just plain weak, like the Defender's moves it hurts you, and it's a weak attack. It would be fun to have a formula, but since no one actually uses that attack(except for Vaan's Flank in Pirate Problems) it's unnecessary.
Reason for name change?[edit source]
While I'm pretty sure censorship was a factor, I'm guessing it's not the entire story. It seems that, in Japanese pop culture, the word has much stronger "giant sword" connotations (the Bastard! manga, Yu-Gi-Oh's Bastard Blader card, localized as Buster Blader, Cloud's Bastard Sword, localized as Buster Sword, the Bastard / Ravager class etc.) and much weaker "scoundrel" and "secret kid from an extramarital affair" connotations, this, a name which is probably fairly intuitive and evocative to a Japanese audience would seem bizarre, ambiguous and unintuitive to an anglophone audience. TL;DR: I'm guessing it would be more accurate to say that the class was probably renamed in the English version because the name is somewhat vulgar and a different meaning and connotations in English. -- Gordon Ecker (talk) 07:17, November 14, 2012 (UTC)
