Triple (トリプル, Toripuru?), also known as Tricast, is a recurring ability in the series. It allows those under its effects to cast spells three times in succession.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Triple is a spell serving as an upgraded version to the Double spell. It inflicts the status effect of the same name on a single target, allowing them to cast spells three times in one turn, at the cost of expending three spells from their stock. The player can cast three spells at the cost of one spell with Expend support ability. Triple has no time limit and lasts till the end of the battle once inflicted.
Triple is one of the rarest spells and can only be drawn from bosses, a few draw points and the Islands of Heaven/Hell. The player can also get one Triple spell from Zell's "love quest" if they give Fish & Red as the answers to a "survey" held by girls at the library, and later return for the results.
Triple is one of the most powerful junctioning spells, second only to Ultima. It has a massive Hit-J value at 1.5 per stock, and junctioning Triple is the only way for Irvine, Rinoa, and Quistis to achieve the cap of 255, which grants perfect accuracy.
The Quistis and Irvine cards can be converted into Samantha Souls and Rocket Engines, respectively, and then into Triple spells (with Diablos's Time Magic refiner); these cards, along with any other unique card (other than PuPu) can be won back from the 'CC' Card Club group during endgame if the player finishes their sidequest.
The only enemy to use Triple is Cerberus.
Triple is an enemy ability used by Nabriales after reaching the halfway point of his health. It bestows Triple status to him, allowing him to cast his Spark spell three times on the target with the highest enmity.
Tricast is an Elemancy spell available to craft. It randomly casts Fire, Blizzard, or Thunder three times. The first spell cast by Tricast is guaranteed to hit the enemies, while the following two spells will experience a decrease in accuracy.
Stronger versions of the spell called Tricast II (トリプラー, Toripurā?, lit. Triper) and Tricast III (トリプガー, Toripugā?, lit. Tripger) are available. Tricast II attempts to cast Fira, Blizzara, or Thundara three times while the latter attempts to cast Firaga, Blizzaga, or Thundaga on three times.
The tier and potency of these abilities are dependent on the amount of elemental energy and items used to craft the spell.
