Bribe in Final Fantasy X.

Take it, leave us alone, okay?
—Rikku, Final Fantasy X

Bribe (わいろ, Wairo?) is a special skill in Final Fantasy X. It is commonly attributed to Rikku as she starts out closest to it on the Sphere Grid and often acquires it first, but any character can activate it. Providing the party has enough resources, bribing is the easiest way to receive multiple rare items at once.

Spending 100,000 gil on bribes in Final Fantasy X HD Remaster version earns the trophy Under The Table.

MechanicsEdit

Bribe shows up as an option in the Special menu in battle after a character has activated the appropriate node on the Sphere Grid. The player chooses the amount of gil to hand over. Bribe allows the user to attempt to convince the targeted enemy to leave the battle and relinquish some of its rarer treasures in exchange. The more money is given, the better the chance is it will work. The amount of money needed is calculated from the fiend's max HP.

  • x10 Max HP = 25%
  • x15 Max HP = 50%
  • x20 Max HP = 75%
  • x25 Max HP = 100%

Sleeping enemies cannot be bribed and the gil used is wasted. If the enemy does not accept the Bribe, the money is lost, but the monster adds it to its running total. For example, if 120,000 gil is offered but not accepted, and the next bribe offers just 1 gil, the second bribe counts as 120,001 gil. Thus one should repeat offering 1 gil until the fiend accepts and leaves combat. This way the player can get away with offering the lowest amount of money needed (10x the fiend's max HP) for the Bribe to work.

Bribe listEdit

In the table below the gil needed to bribe is the minimum amount of money the player must offer to make certain an enemy with full HP will leave the battle. Enemies may sometimes accept a lot less than this, but the chance of success decreases proportionally to the amount of gil offered.

Amount From Bribe is the approximate number of items the enemy will give the player when if offered the gil needed to bribe. The enemy will yield more items if given more gil, and fewer items if given less gil.

Lord Ochu and Ultima Weapon are the only two bosses that can be bribed.
