The "Final Fantasy" Band.

A Band is a type of powerful multi-person technique. You cannot perform a Band with someone unless you have some kind of bond with that person.

Band (バンド, Bando?) is a gameplay term in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. They are special combination attacks between two or more characters, activated at the cost of some MP, and can either grant beneficial effects to the party or strike enemies with a powerful attack or spell.

OverviewEdit

Some Bands are learned in accordance with a story event, while others are learned by the player manually inputting commands in battle to discover them. Within the story, Band abilities can only be performed between characters with a deep bond, such as friendship or relatives. The powers of the Bands usually reflect the characters using them and the bond that allows them to Band.

To discover a Band that does not require a story event to be accessed, the player selects the Band command, then "Search for Bands." The player then inputs the proper commands from party members to combine powers (for example, Cecil's Attack and Rosa's White Magic), and executes the Band. If the correct abilities have been combined, the appropriate Band will activate. The character whose turn it is does not need to input a command. The first time a Band has been discovered this way it costs no MP to use. After a Band has been discovered by searching for it or through a story event, it will appear in the Band menu and can be selected to execute without having to input commands.

When a Band attack is issued, if one of the characters involved in the Band has not filled their ATB gauge yet, the Band will not begin to charge and execute until the gauge is filled. Bands have various ways to calculate damage—they can be either physical or magical, can hit multiple targets or just one, and some deal elemental damage. Band abilities take into account the Moon Phase and its effects on the commands the Band's power relies on. For example, during the Waning Moon, Bands that incorporate a character's Attack strength into their damage will be stronger, and Bands that use special commands will be weaker. Bands are generally extremely powerful, and several can exceed the damage limit to do 10,000 damage or greater.

Offensive Bands override the element(s) of a participant's equipped weapon (ie. if using a non-elemental Band that involves weapon contact, such as Vibra Plus, while wielding elemental weapons against an enemy that would normally resist or absorb said element, it would deal regular damage instead of reduced damage).

In the Android and iOS version, Bands are already listed for every character. While there are Bands that are learned in accordance with story events, all other Bands are learned by fighting a certain number of battles. Known Bands level up in the same manner. Bands will only level up or be learned if the characters involved in the Band are in the active party.

Final Fantasy Trading Card GameEdit

TCG Two characters can use Band abilities. Luca's card, depicting her character artwork, can use Lightning Brain Buster. It requires the player to Dull Luca and a Rydia they control, discard a Luca card, and pay 1 Earth and 1 Fire CP. Lightning Brain Buster deals 10,000 damage to a Forward of the player's choice.

Ursula's card, depicting her tale artwork, can use Twin Wing Frenzy. For two Earth CP and the discard of an Ursula card, Twin Wing Frenzy deals 9,000 damage to a Forward of the player's choice. The player must also control a Yang card to use Twin Wing Frenzy.

TriviaEdit

  • Band attacks existed prior The After Years in another game made by Squaresoft before the merging with Enix. Chrono Trigger introduced Double and Triple Techs, which unlike the Band attacks were automatically learned once the characters had the necessary abilities available.
  • Particle Bomb is cast by Palom and Leonora in the opening FMV of The After Years in The Complete Collection release.
  • When Ultimate Art: Advent of the Phoenix is used, Edge and the Eblan Four say the following lines, the first five letters of which spell "Eblan", and, perhaps coincidentally, the six first letters spell the original English translation of Eblan, "Eblana":
    • Zangetsu: Endless night, lit by fiery wings...
    • Izayoi: Bound by the darting, dancing sword...
    • Gekkou: Let it slice the encompassing dark...
    • Tsukinowa: And sound the tolling bell of tomorrow!
    • Edge: Now! We call forth Eblan's ancient technique...
    • All: Advent of Phoenix!
  • The Final Fantasy band, aside from being a nod to the name of the series, has the characters perform the attacks used against Golbez and the Archfiends in the FMV opening for the DS remake of Final Fantasy IV: Rosa and Rydia use magic, Edge throws his shurikens, Kain jumps, and Cecil slashes with his sword.
