Trickplays use a variety of low to mid-power elemental attacks, but none of them are truly dangerous. L4 Suicide can be devastating to characters at a level that is a multiple of four, because reduces target's HP by 31/32 and inflicts Small on all party members. Gold Mountain is weak, but increases the amount of gil the party obtains from the Trickplay. In fact, one can gain infinite gil from a Trickplay encounter; every time Trickplay uses it, it increases the gil yield by 800. Its Hot Springs attack can heal one party member, but it is seldom used.

There is a 2/23 chance that L4 Suicide is used in battle and can be learned as an Enemy Skill. It is also effective against the Trickplay.
