Edgar's Tools techniques.

Tools (機械, Kikai?, lit. Machine) is Edgar's special ability in Final Fantasy VI that allows him to use various machines to create various effects. Tools are found as items and there are eight tools in total. Tools can be sold. The Tools command may also be used by the optional character Gogo. Getting all the Tools in the mobile/Steam version yields the Mech Mania achievement.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Edgar wielding the Chainsaw during its instant death attack.

When the Chainsaw's Death attack is used, Edgar and Gogo don a hockey goalie's mask in similar fashion to Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th. This changes it to an actual chainsaw, rather than the normal form which is more akin to a circular saw.

The Debilitator appears to be a headset and eyepiece, which is in line with its animation containing small representations of statistics similar to a Dragon Ball Scouter, including "LEVL" for "level." However, the animation places the eyepiece several pixels below the user's eye, covering the mouth area instead and pulling the headband below the top of the head.

In the original Japanese version of Final Fantasy VI, through a bug it was possible to equip any item as a helmet. The Drill was the most powerful item for this, reflected by actually becoming a helmet in Dissidia.

Other appearances[edit | edit source]

The Chainsaw, Drill, and Auto Crossbow are the Hand, Head and Body armor of the Machines equipment set, with the Machine Gun as the weapon. The equipment set's items all have among the highest stats of their type, but have the drawback of increasing the breaking chance of the player's breakable accessories by 5% each.

The Machine Gun weapon has been reassigned as an exclusive weapon for Laguna. The Air Anchor takes its place as the weapon of the Machine set, with the Chainsaw, Drill and Auto Crossbow returning. The set has rebalanced stats but the same drawbacks.
