—In-Game "Help" Description
The Lady Luck(ギャンブラー, Gyanburā?, lit. Gambler) is a dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2. It is obtained in Luca either in Chapters 3 or 5 by defeating Shinra at Sphere Break. The easiest way to acquire the dressphere is to beat Shinra in Chapter 3 due to his increased difficulty in Chapter 5.
As the name suggests, the Lady Luck dressphere excels in high Luck, aiding the player to achieve many Critical Hits. The dressphere is only above average regarding other stats but is somewhat high in strength. Lady Luck relies heavily on player skill and luck, especially when using the Reels which are the primary source of the dressphere's offense and defense. If the Reels are to fail at aligning to a correct combination, the player suffers from a Dud, which takes off 75% of the current HP regardless of the defense, though can be avoided if the player is invincible or has NulPhysical.
The Lady Luck dressphere dons tight, revealing, colored dresses with playing card symbols on the each of the girls' chests. Yuna's dress is magenta and fades into purple. She has a purple gloves and boots. She wears a gold coin belt and necklace. She has a black, red, and gold headdress and has a black spade on her chest.
Rikku's dress is yellow with black trim and a blue headband. She wears yellow gloves and armbands on her upper arm. She wears black thigh-high fishnet stockings and yellow boots. She has a black club on her chest.
Paine's dress is indigo and black. She has indigo gloves that fade into black and thigh high black boots. She wears a decorative hairpin with blue and teal feathers on the right side. She has a red diamond on her chest.
The Lady Luck dressphere returns in Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission. Multiple copies can be found on the ground inside the tower or bought in shops. It increases Magic, Magic Defense and Evasion by 1 point per each level. It has a low HP growth. Its regular attack range is three tiles ahead of the character.
Rolling doubles on Two Dice or the same number four times on Four Dice awards the Gambler's Dream trophy in Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster. The icon is three Sevens over the Lady Luck symbol. Also, using Bribe 30 times awards the Excellent Negotiator trophy, which has falling coins for its icon.
It is implied that Leblanc's outfit is a Lady Luck dressphere, as the mark on her chest is a Heart, one of the four suits of a deck of cards like the Spade, Club, and Diamond on the chests of Yuna, Rikku, and Paine when they change into their dresspheres. Her fanblade is also comparable to the fan of cards used as the dressphere's weapon.
Some of the symbols seen in the Reels align to some dresspheres:
In battle Yuna and Rikku simply hold on to their cards, but Paine can make her cards orbit around her (during ATB-gauge filling) and, in her victory pose, the cards fly around her body up to her open palm.
The Lady Luck dressphere is one of only two ways of accessing Ultima in the game. The other is through the equipping of the Megiddo Garment Grid and passing through all of its gates.
The Reels can easily be exploited to get any combo the player wants, in particular the CONGRATS! alignment, by simply pausing the game repeatedly. The player can wait for whatever symbol they wish to show up, and press as it is a slot away from the desired position.
The Reels start rotating in a random order. Therefore, it is impossible to align them in a specific order or sequence all the time unless the player repeatedly pauses the game.
Yuna's and Paine's cards correspond to their respective card suits (Spades and Diamonds), however, Rikku's cards are adorned with spades.
Some of Lady Luck's abilities have been previously used in Thief's skillsets in earlier Final Fantasy games.
The Lady Luck is also the name of a card-themed Keyblade associated with Wonderland, that appears in the Kingdom Hearts series. The Keyblade's Japanese name, "Last Resort", also appears in X-2 as a Garment Grid.
