Mog and his Dance skills.

Once selected, these commands are used continuously until the end of battle.
—Dance and Rage, Adventuring School

Dance (踊り, Odori?) is Mog's special ability in Final Fantasy VI. The Dance command resembles Final Fantasy V 's Gaia battle command with characteritsics in common with the Dance commands from the same title. Each dance has a 1 in 16 chance of summoning an animal that resembles the Final Fantasy V Ranger's Animals command.

When Mog selects a Dance, he will randomly perform one of four abilities. The odds that he will perform a certain ability are not equal. When Mog dances control over him is lost for the remainder of the battle or until Mog dies. If the dance is of a terrain different from the terrain the party is fighting on, the terrain will change to that of the dance. If Mog is not on a home terrain for the chosen dance, there is a 50% chance Mog will "stumble" on his first attempt in a battle.

Mog learns new dances by fighting in different areas. If Mog is in an area whose home terrain he does not know the dance for, he learns the dance. Mog will not learn a dance if he danced during the battle. For example, successfully dancing the Earth Blues in a desert will change the desert to a mountain. This means both that, if Mog is killed and revives, dancing the Earth Blues a second time will ensure success, but because the terrain has changed from desert to mountains, Mog will not learn the associated dance of the desert.

The secret character Gogo may also use the Dance command, but cannot learn new dances. Gogo only knows the current dances Mog knows.

The chances of using a particular ability from a Dance varies. Below is a chart of the Dances, abilities, and chances of using said ability.
