Throwing items are items designed to be used specifically through the recurring Throw ability, usually a trademark of the Ninja job. Throwing items include ninja stars, or shuriken, and ninja scrolls, which may unleash effects similar to Ninjutsu.


Final Fantasy III[]

Even though it is classified as a weapon, the Shuriken can only be equipped by Ninjas, and is consumed when used for an attack.

In the 3D versions, the Shuriken cannot be equipped, and can only be thrown by Ninja.

There are several shuriken items reserved for Edge Geraldine's Throw ability, which can't be equipped by characters or used as items.
