Fang as a Commando in Final Fantasy XIII.

Commando (アタッカー, Atakkā?, lit. Attacker) is a special job class in the Final Fantasy series and is associated with Command Synergy Battle system. It is focused on dealing heavy damage.


Final Fantasy XIIIEdit


Commando is a straightforward attacker with few command abilities. Its main purpose is to deal heavy damage to enemies, particularly when staggered, and most of its attacks allow slow down the chain gauge's decrease. Lightning, Sazh Katzroy, Snow Villiers, and Oerba Yun Fang major in the role, and Snow and Fang's Full ATB skills are Commando abilities.

Final Fantasy XIII-2Edit


Commando returns as the straightforward attacking role, and maintains the same abilities. Serah Farron and Noel Kreiss both start out with Commando, but only the latter specializes in it. There are also numerous Paradigm Pack monsters that serve as Commandos. Lightning in the Lightning's Story: Requiem of the Goddess DLC scenario has a role based on the Commando called Paladin. Clearing the scenario nets Lightning's "Knight of Etro" version as a Paradigm Pack ally, who is possibly the best Paradigm Pack Commando in the game.
