Rikku using an item.

Here, this will pick you up!

Use (使う, Tsukau?) is a Special ability in Final Fantasy X. Initially available to Rikku, it enables the character to Use any of the special items not accessible via the Item command. These items are necessary for Rikku's Mix Overdrive, and on their own can inflict damage, heal, or grant beneficial status effects to the party.

Most of the items usable in battle require the ability Use to be activated. Most Use items are offensive or supportive in nature, with Al Bhed Potion, Healing Water and Tetra Elemental being the only Use Items that actually recover HP.

Use Items are rarely found freely available and must be stolen or dropped by enemies, or acquired through sidequests. Use items also tend to be usable to customize rare abilities onto equipment or to teach strong skills to aeons.
