VI The only Killer ability in the game is the Man-Eater, which deals double damage against human targets.

Final Fantasy IX Edit

IX Zidane, Steiner, Freya and Amarant can equip various Killer abilities that make physical attacks deal 1.5x damage to the corresponding enemy type. Killer abilities do not stack in case an opponent belongs to more than one category. For example, Dracozombie is both an undead and a dragon, but it gives no additional benefit to equip both Killer abilities; as long as either Undead Killer or Dragon Killer is equipped the attacker will deal maximum damage.

Final Fantasy XI Edit


Killer abilities cause increased damage and gives a chance to intimidate the creature. This effect is similar to Paralysis. Most creatures possess an appropriate killer effect versus creatures in an opposing ecosystem. Some ecosystems, such as beastmen and elementals, are exempt from this, due to their nature of opposing their enemy in the ecosystem rather than simply being eaten by them like ordinary ecosystems.

  • Beastmasters gain multiple Killer abilities, similar to wildlife.
  • Blue Mages have access to multiple Killer abilities through Blue Magic Synergy.
  • Dark Knights have Arcana Killer.
  • Dragoons have Dragon Killer.
  • Samurai have Demon Killer.
  • Paladins have Undead Killer.
  • Some equipment may grant other Jobs these effects.
    • Conversely, the Crimson Mail/Blood Mail gives players "dragon affinity" when worn, which has a downside of making them intimidated by anything with Dragon Killer.
