Mayhem-making moogles in motley who juggle a variety of implements to dazzle and destroy.
Juggler (曲芸士, Kyokugeishi?, lit. Acrobat) is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, exclusive to moogles. It could be viewed as the moogle equivalent of the Ninja, with similar stats and focus on weakening foes. They throw random things that can be either beneficial for the party or destructive for the opposing clan. Once mastered, it is often best used as a secondary A-ability set to a Moogle Knight. It also complements Hurdy's unique Bard job, as the debuffing support of a Juggler mirrors the buffing support of the Bard, for a wide range of status effects.
Smile Toss is always a positive, as it can be used to give allies free turns when necessary. Two Jugglers with Smile Toss can potentially go anywhere on the map, assuming they remain in range of each others moves and deliver a quick (and cheap) Ultima Charge since Smile Toss does not consume MP.
Scarface is a Juggler and is fond of speed battles. House Minymum is represented by a Juggler appearing in auctions time and again.
To use the Juggler, a character must first master two Tinker A-Abilities.

- Having multiple Jugglers with the Smile ability is proven to be most useful as their usage are unlimited and has no cost. Having Jugglers with Time Magicks may also be useful since Smile ability combined with Haste or Hastega as well as inflicting Slow, Stop, or using Ring Toss on the enemy will serve them well during the hardest moments of battle.
- Juggler is the only moogle job where all A-abilities are categorized as active since all of them grants either buffs or debuffs with similar range and MP-less usage. Although that Flintlocks buffs and debuffs abilities are MP-less, the Prime ability decategorized as par with Juggler's for Prime requires MP cost.
