Please expand this article into a full one. This can be done by Info on formulas in each game, different characters and jobs, etc. This request can be discussed on the associated discussion page.

Accuracy (命中, Meichuu?), usually abbreviated as ACC and also known as Hit, Hit Rate, Precision, and Attack%, is a recurring stat in the Final Fantasy series. Having a higher Accuracy can increase the likelihood that the player's attack will connect. Accuracy is generally compared against Evasion and Luck to determine hits and misses. Unlike physical attacks, magic spells usually have a set Hit Rate, except in Final Fantasy XI that uses a Magic Accuracy concept.

Spells, like Blind, can significantly lower Accuracy. Other effects, like Bard's Madrigal songs can increase Accuracy. Equipment can do the same. The maximum value for Accuracy is 255%. At this value, the attack will never miss, but weapons with such high Accuracy are often rare.

AppearancesEdit

Final FantasyEdit

Accuracy raises each time a character gains a level and maxes out at 99.

Formula for Hit%:

  • For Warrior/Knight/Monk/Master:
Hit%=(Initial Value At LV 1)+(3x(LV-1)
  • For Thief/Ninja/Red Mage/Red Wizard:
Hit%=(Initial Value At LV 1)+(2x(LV-1)
For White Mage/White Wizard/Black Mage/Black Wizard:
Hit%=(Initial Value At LV 1)+(LV-1)

Final Fantasy IIEdit

In Final Fantasy II, Accuracy is divided into a number and a percentage. The first number is how many hits the character can land and is based solely on a character's skill level with the equipped weapon, while the percentage is determined by the equipped weapon's Accuracy value plus the character's Strength stat. Each weapon factors Accuracy individually, although only the Accuracy of the weapon in the character's main hand is displayed.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

In Final Fantasy III, Accuracy rises every four levels a character goes up it maxes out at 99.

Agility is also related to Accuracy in some way.

Attack Multiplier=(Agility/16)+(Level/16)+1
Hit%=(Weapon Hit%)+(Agility/4)+(Skill/4)

Agility also affects defense:

  • (With Shield)
Defense Multiplier=((Agility/16)+(Level/16)+1)*(Number Of Shields Equipped)
  • (Without Shield)
Defense Multiplier=(Agility/32)+(Level/32)

And Evasion:

Evade%=(Sum Of All Worn Armour Evade%)+(Agility/4)

And Magic Defense:

Magic Defense Multiplier=(Agility/32)+(Intellect/32)+(Spirit/32)
  • Note: Agility does not affect the Steal rate.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Accuracy (Called Speed) is gained each time a character levels up, it maxes at 99%.

Formula for Accuracy:

( 50 + [Lv/4] + WpAcc )

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Accuracy returns in the sequel to Final Fantasy IV, and works the same way.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

Accuracy is calculated the same way as has its predecessors, meaning that accuracy is determined by the weapon the character has equipped.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Each job changes the modifications of the stats, so Accuracy never grows it is only modified. Accuracy affects Hit% which must be greater than the enemies Evade% to land an attack.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Due to the Evade bug in the versions prior to the Advance port were glitched what it comes to the characters' hit rate, such as preventing status effects from actually lowering the afflicted character's hit rate.

For normal attacks, if the target has Sleep, Petrify, Stop, or Freeze status, then the attack will always hits the target. If the attack is physical and hits the back of the target, then it will never miss. If a physical attack hits a target that has the Image status, then the attack will miss, and there is a 1 in 4 chance of removing the Image status.

If a magical attack hits a target that has the Invisible status, the attack will always hit.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

Formula for Attack%:

Hit\% = ([Attacker's Dexterity / 4] + Attack\%) + Attacker's Defense\% - Target's Defense\%

Formula for Attack% if the player is under Fury:

Hit\% = Hit\% - [Hit\% * 3 / 10]

The characters' Attack% is determined by their equipped weapon. There are four weapons in the game with perfect (255) accuracy: Tifa's God's Hand, Vincent's Long Barrel R and Sniper CR, and Sephiroth's Masamune (which also has perfect critical hit chance).

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Squall and Seifer naturally have 255% accuracy due to equipping gunblades, which means they will never miss. Selphie's ultimate weapon, the Strange Vision, also has natural 255% hit rate. Other characters can junction Guardian Forces that have the Hit-J junction ability to junction spells to their Hit to improve their accuracy.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

If the attacker has Accuracy+, their attacks never miss.

Otherwise, a physical attack's accuracy is 100% - the target's Evade, but the 100% can be halved to 50% - Evade, 25% - Evade, or even 12.5% - Evade by the attacker's statuses Confuse and Darkness, or if the defender's status is Defend. It is dropped to 0% if the target has Vanished.

If a party member has Distract equipped enemies' physical attack accuracy against then is halved.

Final Fantasy XEdit

Accuracy is one of the stats that govern the chances of successfully land a physical attack on the opponent, the other stats being the target's Evasion stat and both units' Luck stat.

For player characters, the following intermediary equation is used to determine the integer AcNum:

AcNum=(AttackerAccuracy*0.4-TargetEvasion)+9

AcNum is then converted into Accuracy%, the chance of the attack hitting before Luck is taken into account, using the following table:

AcNum Accuracy%
0 or lower 25
1 or 2 30
3 or 4 40
5 50
6 60
7 80
8 or greater 100

If the character is afflicted with Darkness, Accuracy% is always 10, regardless of AcNum.

If the target's Evasion is 111 or higher, Accuracy% will never be higher than 25 regardless of the attacker's Accuracy unless the attacker has used the special ability Aim.

For enemies, Accuracy% is calculated using the following formula:

Accuracy% =SkillAccuracy-TargetEvasion

Where SkillAccuracy is an integer tied to the enemy ability used.

Finally, for both characters and enemies, Hit%, the actual chance of the attack being successful expressed as a percentage, is calculated as follows:

Hit% =Accuracy%+AttackerLuck-TargetLuck

On the Sphere Grid, the player can activate Accuracy nodes by spending Speed Spheres, and create new Accuracy nodes by using Accuracy Spheres. Speed Spheres are a common drop from many enemies, while Accuracy Spheres can be obtained by defeating Hornet.

An Accuracy stat of 255 does not guarantee connection to all targets.

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

Hit % of normal attacks are usually determined only by the target's evasion, however there are a few exceptions which are only calculated if the normal evasion routine would have resulted in a hit.

  • During inclement weather (wind, rain, etc), Bows have a 20% chance of missing, and Crossbows a 50% chance.

Serah Farron and Noel Kreiss's weapons are designed for both, melee and ranged attacks.

Final Fantasy Tactics AdvanceEdit

The chance of any offensive, such as attacking or damaging spells. ability hitting is highly dependent on the direction the target is facing. If the target is facing whatever unit is using the ability, the chance of it hitting will be half as much as if the target has their back to the unit using the ability. If the target has their side to the unit using the ability, the chance of hitting will be halfway between the chance of hitting the target from the front and from the back.

Positive abilities, such as healing or buffing abilities will have a guaranteed chance of hitting the target, regardless of facing.
