BattleEdit

It resists Ice. If a Ghost is damaged or is stolen from, it always becomes invisible. When invisible, it is immune to damage. It is weak to Fire and restoratives. Ghost has a standard physical attack called Scratch, which inflicts minor damage. If it is not defeated quickly, it can hit the party hard with Fire on one character, and also will use Drain on the party member with the highest current HP to transfer a portion to itself.

The player can win or steal the rare Ghost Hand item, only obtained from Ghosts in the whole game.

StrategyEdit

To defeat a Ghost quickly the party should use spells, such as Fire, which is the Ghost's weakness; Cure; or even a Potion.

AI scriptEdit

Start of battle

Declare Invisible = 0

Declare Count = 0

Turn
If (Invisible == 0) Then
If (Count == 0) Then

Use Scratch on random opponent

If (1/2 Chance) Then

Count = 1

Else If (Count == 1) Then

Use Drain on random opponent with highest HP

Count = 2

Else
If (Self MP >= 4) Then

Use Fire on random opponent

Else

Use Scratch on random opponent

Count = 0

Else

Use Appear

Invisible = 0

Count = 0

Counter - if attacked
If (Invisible == 0) Then

Use Vanish

Invisible = 1

NotesEdit

  • Vanish and Appear are battle animations.
  • Although it was never stated explicitly in the AI script, when Invisible = 1, physical and magical attacks against Ghost will always miss.
  • Ghost's AI never checks if it has sufficient MP to cast Drain (costs 1 MP) before it attempts to cast it. If it does not have enough MP, the spell is not cast and the message "Ghost's skill power is used up" will display.

EtymologyEdit

A ghost is the soul or spirit of a deceased person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life, though stories of phantom armies, ghost trains, phantom ships, and even ghost animals have also been recounted.
