Increase physical attack power.
Final Fantasy Tactics description

Focus (ためる, Tameru?), also known as Accumulate, Store, BuildUp, Power, Boost is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. Unlike many abilities, Focus has had no set function, but follows the general formula of increasing a certain stat of the user.

There is a recurring magic ability also called Focus in English, but in Japanese they have different names. There is also a Black Magic spell in the original Final Fantasy also called Focus, which is also unrelated to the other Focus abilities in the series.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

III Boost (BuildUp in the NES version) is the command ability of the Black Belt class, which doubles the next attack's power. It can be used three consecutive times, before the user releases its boosted energy and takes damage.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Focus (Power in the PS translation) was removed on the SNES North American and Easy Type versions. In the GBA release Yang has the Focus ability. Focus has a Charge Time of 4. When used, Yang spends a short time charging up, and then makes an attack with double his regular attack power, though Yang is unable to avoid any magic attacks. This makes Focus particularly effective against monsters with high Defense, and can even get past the immense Defense stats of Flan type monsters if Yang is wielding claws which match their elemental weaknesses.

In the GBA/PSP releases, Yang can upgrade the Focus attack to Deadly by equipping the Discipline Armband; Deadly has the same properties, but triples his attack power.

The duration of both abilities are determined by Yang's Agility.

In the 3D releases, Yang still has the Focus ability, and it can be obtained as an augment after he leaves the party. Instead of executing automatically, it can be used up to three times in succession, each time powering up the next physical attack further. Focus affects the Attack, Jump, Kick, Aim, and Throw commands, and stacks with Darkness.
