The Moonring Blade, a common throwing weapon.

Throwing weapons Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Dev:Japanese' not found. are a recurring type of equippable weapons in the Final Fantasy series. This specific type refers to the widest selection of different weapons in the series, and generally includes and groups shuriken, boomerangs and chakrams. Thrown weapons are generally Shoot-elemental and long range. These properties make them useful as they are generally equippable by Thieves and Ninjas, which are vulnerable and fast physical jobs that gain survivability when placed on back rows.

There is a distinction between throwing weapons and throwing items, where the former refers to weapons that must be equipped to be used in battle, while the second refers to weapons or items designed to be used with the Throw command. Characters who can use throwing weapons commonly have access to this ability.

Recurring thrown weapons include the Moonring Blade, the Rising Sun, the Wing Edge and the Hawkeye.
