Edge is a playable character in the Final Fantasy IV series. He is a ninja-type character who can dual-wield weapons and use Ninjutsu skills in battle.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Stats Edit

Edge has high Speed and physical stats, but has low Defense. This is counteracted by his high physical evasion.

To reach 99 points in his stats, Edge needs 38 points in Strength, 27 in Speed, 51 in Stamina, 64 in Intellect and 75 in Spirit.

AbilitiesEdit

Edge is a Ninja, allowing him to dual wield weapons.

If Edge has two weapons equipped, the damage he deals from the Attack command is equal to the attack power of his left weapon plus the attack power of the right weapon plus Edge's Strength divided by 4, added together with Edge's Level divided by 4, multiplied by 2.

$ Base Attack Power = Weapon on Left Hand's Attack Power + Weapon on Right Hand's Attack Power + (Str/4 + Level/4)*2 $

However, if Edge is only equipped with one weapon, the damage he deals from the Attack command is equal to just the attack power of the weapon.

$ Base Attack Power = Weapon's Attack Power $

After calculating the base attack power for a physical attack, several modifiers are brought into play, such as Critical Hits, elements, and status effects.

Edge's Throw command allows him to throw weapons at his opponents for high damage. His Steal allows him to steal items from his opponents and Ninjutsu allows him to cast special Ninja spells. In the Advance and Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection releases, Edge gains the Hanzo Gloves for completing his Lunar Trial that upgrades Steal to Plunder. With Plunder, Edge will attack if he successfully steals. In all 2D versions of the game, Edge takes some damage if he fails to steal an item. In the 3D releases Edge learns more Ninjutsu skills.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

StatsEdit

Edge and the Eblan Four have a level cap of 40 in his chapter. Edge has all around decent stats with the exception of his low Spirit, and while he is primarily a physical attacker he can be a somewhat effective Black Mage with Ninjutsu. Edge's greatest asset is his high Speed, and he is the second-fastest character in the game after Tsukinowa.
