Porom and Palom casting Pyroblast.

Cast a powerful spell with two people.

PSP description

Twincast (ふたりがけ, Futarigake?), also known as Twin, is an ability in Final Fantasy IV. Two characters with the Twincast ability can act in unison to cast powerful forms of magic. Twincast is used by Palom and Porom during normal gameplay, but is also used by Golbez and Fusoya in a cutscene. In the 3D remakes, any character can have Twincast as an Augment, and Tellah's Recall ability sometimes casts Twincast magic. Twincast resembles the Band system in the sequel.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Casting[edit | edit source]

The Twincast command's charge time varies depending on the spell the player selects to cast. When initiated, the twins cannot use other commands while preparing the spell. The spell is aborted if either of the twins is knocked out or petrified. Upon the spell executing, there is a 75% chance of using Pyroblast at a cost of 10 MP, or a 25% chance of using Comet for 20 MP. Comet has higher power and ignores Reflect, which Pyroblast does not.

Upgrading[edit | edit source]

In the GBA and Complete Collection releases of the 2D version of Final Fantasy IV, the Twincast ability can be upgraded on Palom and Porom. Equipping the Twin Stars enables the twin to cast Twin Meteor, which is much stronger than Comet and costs no MP, but takes a longer time to cast.

As Augment[edit | edit source]

In the 3D remake of Final Fantasy IV more spells are available by equipping it as an Augment. This allows the characters who equipped the Augment to Twincast with another character who also equipped the Augment to perform a unique spell. Several abilities are only usable by a certain pairing of characters, meaning it is important to choose wisely.

As it is possible through Augments for more than two people to have the Twincast ability, both casters must manually perform the command to execute the spell, whereas previously, if Palom or Porom alone used Twincast, the other twin automatically executed the command as well.
