Takes enemy's items away and evades attacks

The Thief is available to humes and moogles as a basic job in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Thieves are one of the most useful jobs because of their ability to steal any piece of equipment, or even JP and abilities. To take full advantage of this players can examine every piece of equipment the opponents have before starting an engagement. Thieves are balanced with favorable stats, but it is best to do not rely on their growth too much. Ninjas and Hunters have better stat growth and can therefore benefit from the Thief's abilities.



Hume Thieves have average stat growth. They have balanced but mediocre stats all around, with the only notable exception being their slightly elevated Speed. One should refrain from leveling up as a Thief, as there are better options for stat growth.

The moogle Thief is balanced but mediocre, similar to the hume Thief. Their only exceptional stat is their speed, which is the highest out of all moogle classes. One should refrain from leveling up as a Thief, as there are better options for stat growth.
