Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

Cherry Blossom is an ability of the Soldier class, unique to Cloud, learned for 1,200 JP (2,500 JP in the WotL version). It has a range of 3, effect of 3, and speed of 5. Due to it having such a long Charge Time, it is very hard to utilize the ability, and thus may never see action in actual gameplay.

Freya's Cherry Blossom Super Soul Break.

Two versions of Cherry Blossom exist in the game as Soul Breaks.

The first version is a Super Soul Break available to Freya from the Dragon Knight's Greatcoat (IX) relic. The ability deals three ranged physical wind-elemental attacks to all targets and causes Freya's jump attacks to land instantly for three turns. Freya's Cherry Blossom costs two bars from the Soul Break gauge to perform and can eventually be mastered once accumulating enough experience into the Dragon Knight's Greatcoat (IX) relic.

The second version is an Overstrike Soul Break available to Cloud from the Materia Blade (T) relic. The ability deals massive fire, ice, and lightning elemental damage to a single target and can break the damage cap. Cloud's Cherry Blossom costs two bars from the Soul Break gauge to perform in battle. It can eventually be mastered once accumulating enough experience into the Materia Blade (T) relic and grants a bonus to Cloud's base attack stat by 10 points.

EtymologyEdit

A sakura or cherry blossom, is the flower of any of several trees of genus Prunus, particularly the Japanese Cherry, Prunus serrulata. Sakura are an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life, an aspect of Japanese cultural tradition that is often associated with Buddhistic influence, and which is embodied in the concept of mono no aware.

Note: It should be noted that the kanji for "Ōka/Sakurabana" via the second kanji is written with 華 instead of 花, which somewhat changes its meaning and context.
