Bangaa Gladiator RW

Gladiator (剣闘士, Kentoushi?, lit. Sword Champion) or Gladiator (守護騎士, Shugokishi?, lit. Guardian Knight) or Gladiator (グラディエーター, Guradiētā?) is a job class in the Final Fantasy series all about dealing heavy damage, usually with elements added to their attack. The trade-off is that the Gladiator has low Agility compared to other melee jobs.

Final Fantasy Tactics AdvanceEdit

Gladiator is a job for bangaa after mastering two Warrior abilities. Gladiators wield the powerful blades in combat and can also learn three different "Spell Blades" to deal damage. Along with those, they also have some Fighter abilities to use as well. When raised right, Gladiators are very powerful and, when equipped with Strikeback, it is difficult to get in a hit.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

Gladiator is a job available only to bangaa. This job can charge their weapons with elemental properties for stronger attacks. They are nimble melee units that are incapable of equipping heavy armor and so are a bit short in the Defense department, but the highest possible Strength growth makes up for it.

EtymologyEdit

A gladiator (Latin: gladiator, "swordsman", from gladius, "sword") was an armed combatant who entertained audiences in the Roman Republic and Roman Empire in violent confrontations with other gladiators, wild animals, and condemned criminals. Some gladiators were volunteers but most were slaves schooled under harsh conditions. Gladiators were celebrated in art, and it became a feature of politics and social life in the Roman world.
