Hourglass (金の砂時計, Kin no Sunadokei?) is a recurring attack item in the Final Fantasy series. It usually is used to slow down or halt the enemy. More commonly there are two or three hourglasses, titled Gold Hourglass (金の砂時計, Kin no Sunatokē?), Silver Hourglass (銀の砂時計, Gin no Sunatokē?), and Bronze Hourglass (銅の砂時計, Dō no Sunatokē?). Each usually has a similar effect, but with different strengths and targets.
|Effect||Casts Stop VIII.|

The Silver Hourglass increases EX Mode Duration by 5%, but lowers Assist Gauge Duration by 10%. It can be traded for three Girl's Dreams, three Phantom's Dreams, three Blackcrystal Slivers, and 900 gil. The Gold Hourglass is removed from the game from the original Dissidia.
As special accessories are two new Hourglass types - Platinum and Ruby. The Platinum Hourglass increases EX Mode Duration by 15%, but lowers EX Force Absorption by 20%. The Ruby Hourglass grants +10% EX Mode Duration, but at the cost of -10% EX Mode Damage.
A Gold Hourglass revives the player party instantly, without the player having to wait for the party to regenerate after having been wiped out in a battle. They can be bought in bulk as in-app purchases: 20 for $2.99.
