Stun enemies by smacking them with a blade's dull side.
Blade Bash (みねうち or 峰打ち, Mineuchi?) also known as Mineuchi, Sslap, SwdSlap, and Swordslap is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is a command ability that attacks a target and inflicts some sort of status ailment that immobilizes the target. It is associated with the Samurai.
Mineuchi is a command ability learned by the Samurai. It was called SwdSlap in the older translation and is a Level 1 job ability. It damages an opponent equal to a normal attack and is meant to inflict Paralysis, but this never occurs due to a glitch, so it acts as a normal attack with the benefit of not removing Confuse, Control, or Sleep from the target.
The Paladin can use Pommel, learned at job Level 3. It deals damage and stuns the target.
Damage and paralyze one enemy
Blade Bash is an ability that costs 5 MP and allows the caster to deal physical damage (0.8x) to one enemy, with a 30% chance to paralyze. Chizuru (4★) and Cyan (3★) learn Blade Bash at level 1, Firion at level 24 (3★), Gilbert at level 28 (4★) and Leo at level 11 (4★), Miyuki at level 38 (3★), and Rizer at level 13 (1★).
Mineuchi is a way of striking an opponent with the back of a one edged sword blade, such as a katana.
