Animists have learned the secret language of the animals, tapping their primal powers in battle.
Animist (動物使い, Dōbutsu Tsukai?, lit. Animal User) is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, usable by moogles, that calls on animals to help in battles. It primarily focuses on inflicting buffs and debuffs, along with a fairly potent healing ability. It is not recommended to level up this class as it is fairly weak, although the Animist moveset is useful to any moogle class.
The Chocobo Rush and Friend abilities are based upon the user's magick stat, benefiting the Black Mage and Time Mage as support jobs. Although the Friend A-Ability affects an area just as wide a Summoner, it is far from reliable as it summons random summons, which can lead to outcomes like healing foes and hurting allies in a large area.
If utilized by magick-focused jobs with elemental absorbing shields made possible via the Shield Bearer passive ability, the Animist can narrow the chances of self harm from summons.
The ANIMIST uses the abilities of the beasts of the wild.

- Animists' role almost spars with the Beastmasters since their abilities can be both useful and chaotic. Although that Beastmasters' Beast Lore range is just two panels far, using monsters against themselves proves that their abilities can aid be both helpful towards allies and against enemies.
- Animists' Friend A-ability is similar to all Summoners' summons, despite the different MP cost and the randomness that may happen after it is cast.
