- “The master's teachings, must use a Blitz technique.”
Blitz (必殺技, Hissatsu Waza?, lit. "Special Move") is Sabin Rene Figaro's ability in Final Fantasy VI. It is activated by pressing a certain combination of buttons into the controller, much like a fighting game. To use a Blitz, the player must press to give the Blitz command, then, while the cursor is pointing at Sabin, press the proper button commands, and then press again to input the command. Due to the Game Boy Advance not possessing X or Y buttons, the Blitzes which use those buttons are inputted differently in the Advance release of the game.

One of Sabin's cards can use Phantom Rush for one Earth CP and the discard of a Sabin card, but can only use it when Sabin is attacking. Phantom Rush removes a Forward of the player's choosing from the game.
- The Phantom Train is vulnerable to Sabin's Meteor Strike, called Suplex in the Super Nintendo localization. A suplex is a throw which usually involves arching/bridging either overhead or twisting to the side, so the opponent is slammed to the mat back-first. Sabin's ability to do this has become an inside joke among fans.
- Sabin's Blitz "Aura Cannon" ("AuraBolt") has the same button commands as the famous "Hadouken" from Street Fighter. They are both ranged attacks. However, Aura Cannon's appearance more closely resembles the more powerful "Shinkuu Hadouken" from the later X-Men vs Street Fighter and VS series games.
- In the same vein, the "Raging Fist" ("Pummel") shares the button command and name of a special move in the Art of Fighting series, and is one of the signature moves of the Kyokugenryu style of karate, practiced by protagonist Ryo Sakazaki.
