Reflect activates automatically in battle.
Auto-Reflect (いつでもリフレク, Itsudemo Rifureku?) is a recurring ability that permanently puts the user in Reflect status. This guarantees that the majority of spells cannot harm the user, but also means the user cannot benefit from positive spells, or even be cured by healing spells, up to the point that they cannot be revived with Raise spells. The effects of Auto-Reflect cannot be dispelled. It is usually granted by the accessory Reflect Ring or the armor Mirror Mail.
The Reflect Ring (Wall Ring in earlier versions) enables this ability, and can be equipped by anyone. It does not grant stat bonuses. It can be found in Istory Falls, can be won (rarely) from Reflect Knight and Parthenope, and is a common win from Leviathan. In addition, it is a common steal from Lemure, Fury, and Carbuncle, and is a rare steal from Reflect Mage, Calofisteri, and Barrier. The enemy Carbuncle has Auto-Reflect as well.
The Reflect Ring (Wall Ring in the SNES version) enables Auto-Reflect, and can be equipped by anyone. It can be found in Narshe and the Imperial Camp in the World of Balance, and can also be won from the Coliseum by betting an Elixir. It can also be bought in the World of Balance in Albrook and Thamasa, and in the World of Ruin in Narshe and South Figaro. Some enemies, most notably the ones in the Ancient Castle, and some in the Cultists' Tower has Auto-Reflect.
The Reflect Ring enables Auto-Reflect, and can be equipped by anyone. It is first acquired after defeating Jenova∙DEATH, and can later be stolen from Ultimate Weapon while chasing it around the world, and while the Weapon is on the ground. An enemy in the Shinra Manor called Mirage has Auto-Reflect due to it being a mirror.
The Guardian Force Carbuncle learns Auto-Reflect for 250 AP. The item Glow Curtain can teach any GF the Auto-Reflect ability, refined from 100 Dragon Skins. Three can also be acquired through refining Carbuncle's card.
