Sabin's Blitz techniques.

The master's teachings, must use a Blitz technique.
Sabin

Blitz (必殺技, Hissatsu Waza?, lit. Special Move) is Sabin Rene Figaro's ability in Final Fantasy VI. In the original versions Blitz 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 A-button to give the Blitz command, then, while the cursor is pointing at Sabin, press the proper button commands, and then press A-button again to input the command. Due to the Game Boy Advance and iOS/Android versions not possessing X-button Nintendo or Y-button buttons, the Blitzes which use those buttons are input differently in these releases with the X-button Nintendo and Y-button buttons replaced with with up-right and up-left. The hidden character Gogo may also use the Blitz command.

In the mobile version, the Blitz commands are input via choosing the arrows that appear on the screen when executing Blitz. There is button feedback when hitting the buttons and it is possible to cancel mistakes. The player's last input Blitz will be repeated if Auto Battle is selected without having to manually input it again. Previously there was no in-game help on how to perform Blitzes, but this has been corrected in the recent update.

Sabin learns new Blitzes as he levels up, save for Phantom Rush, which can be learned regardless of Sabin's level by visiting Duncan in his cabin. All Blitzes are unblockable.

When the game is played with two players on the Super Nintendo and PlayStation versions, if one player presses any buttons while the other is attempting to input a Blitz command, the Blitz will fail.

Other AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy Airborne BrigadeEdit

Sabin uses his Blitz techniques in Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade.

Final Fantasy Trading Card GameEdit

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.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Blitz is a German word for "lightning". In English it is associated with quickness.

TriviaEdit

  • 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 with a train has become an inside joke among fans.
  • Sabin can also suplex himself if he is confused and is the last standing member of the party.
  • Sabin's Blitz "Aura Cannon" ("AuraBolt") has the same button commands as the famous "Hadouken" from Street Fighter. They are both ranged attacks, but Aura Cannon 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.
