Unspecialized fighters who can equip any armor or weapon.

The Freelancer, also known as Bare in the Anthology release, and Normal in the RPGe SNES translation, is the default job from Final Fantasy V that has no defining characteristics. It is the default class the party starts with.



The Freelancer job is the characters in their regular clothing. Bartz wears a blue tunic with white sleeves and leggings and a pair of boots. Lenna wears an orange dress. Faris wears a blue tunic with a green mantle. Galuf wears a long green coat and tan pants. Krile wears a blue dress.


What makes the Freelancer class special is that it has nearly every innate ability from every job the character has mastered, as well as the stat bonuses, but not the penalties (such as the boosted Magic of a mage with none of the reduced Strength). So while it starts off weak, by endgame Freelancer becomes the strongest job.

When a character has mastered every job the three "mastered" stars appear above the Freelancer on the Job Selection screen. The Freelancer can equip everything without needing the "Equip X" abilities. Finally, the Freelancer class has two ability slots instead of one.


The base stats are:

Support abilitiesEdit

Freelancer learns every innate ability from every job the character has mastered, except the Berserker's Berserk, the Gladiator's Lure and the Necromancer's Undead. This does not include HP +, MP +, Two-Handed, ABP Up, EXP Up, Read Ahead, or Long Reach.
