Lancet (竜剣, Ryuuken?, lit. "Dragon Sword"), also localized as Lance, Empowerer, Dragon, DragonSword, Spirit Surge or Life Surge, is an ability in several games in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually associated with the Dragoon job class. Lancet allows characters to absorb HP and MP from their opponents.

## AppearancesEdit

### Final Fantasy VEdit

Lance is the Level 2 ability of the Dragoon class, learned for 150 ABP. It takes around half of the MP of what normal Osmose spells take, and a small amount of HP compared to the Drain spell, but it has no chance of missing.

### Final Fantasy VIEdit

Cyan Garamonde's Level 5 Bushido, Dragon, originally titled Empowerer, absorbs HP and MP from one opponent.

### Final Fantasy VIIEdit

Cid Highwind knows the Limit Break Dragon, which absorbs enemies' HP and MP.

### Final Fantasy IXEdit

Freya Crescent uses the ability Lancer. Unlike in previous games, this only damages an enemy's HP and MP and absorbs neither.

The amount of damage Lancer does to HP is as follows:

$Base = [(Atk Pwr * 12) / 10] - Targets Defense$
$Bonus = Str ... [(Lv + Str) / 8] + Str$
$Damage = Base * Bonus$

The amount of damage Lancer does to MP is equal to 1/16 of the amount of HP damage dealt.

### Final Fantasy XEdit

The Lancet ability absorbs a low amount of HP and an equal amount of MP if available (which is high relative to most character's MP) from one opponent. If Kimahri Ronso uses this ability on certain fiends, he will have a chance to learn a new Ronso Rage. Whereas Drain in some games does damage to its user if it is used on the undead, Lancet will steal life from undead and opponents in Zombie status as normal; characters in Zombie status who use Lancet will also absorb HP as normal.

### Final Fantasy XIEdit

Main article: Spirit Surge

Lancet is the Dragoon's Two-hour ability in Final Fantasy XI. For players playing the English version of Final Fantasy XI, the name displays as Spirit Surge.

### Final Fantasy XII: Revenant WingsEdit

Lancet is an ability learned by Llyud at level 12, which will make him absorb HP from an enemy.

### Final Fantasy XIVEdit
