# List of Final Fantasy VI stats

The following is a list of stats in Final Fantasy VI. Stats applies to both party members and enemies.

Unlike other games, characters' stats—with the exception of HP and MP—do not rise on leveling up, but are instead boosted by equipping weapons, relics and magicite. Magicite permanently increase a stat on level up, while the others increase them when equipped. The Cursed Shield reduces all stats by 7, with the exception of the Defense, Evasion, Magic Defense and Magic Evasion, which it increases by 0.

A list of party member stats can be found below.

## List of statsEdit

### LVEdit

Once a party member gains enough experience, they will level up. The level stat is used in damage calculations for magic and physical damage sources, but does not increase stats. Levels play an important role in a few spells: namely Lv.5 Death, Lv.4 Flare, Lv.3 Confuse, and Lv.? Holy while Dischord can halve the target's level.

When a character joins the party, their level is calculated based on the average level of the current party members. The new character's level equals the average of all current members' levels is rounded down. If a character joins in the World of Ruin, the new level will never be lower than their old level. If a character is joining for the first time, a value is added to the average party level to determine their new level.

### HPEdit

The HP stat shows how much health a character has left. Once it reaches zero, a character reaches KO status. Party members are capped at 9999 HP while enemies are not. The 0 HP character bug allows players to keep a character alive with 0 HP, thus becoming invincible unless healed.

Magicite Increase
Siren +10%
Catoblepas +10%
Midgardsormr +30%
Bahamut +50%
Diabolos +100%
Relic Increase
Muscle Belt +50%
Bone Wrist +50%

### MPEdit

The MP is a measure of how many spells which require MP can be cast. Some enemies, and Gau when in some Rages, die when it reaches 0. Characters are capped at 999 MP while enemies are not. The stat is subject to couple of bugs.

Though few relics increase MP, several reduce the MP cost of spells. Gold Hairpin can halve it, while Celestriad can reduce it to 1 MP cost to all spells.

Magicite Increase
Siren +10%
Fenrir +30%
Relic Increase
Crystal Orb +50%

### StrengthEdit

Also known as Vigor, the Strength stat increases damage done by physical attacks. The stat's boost caps at 128; although it can be raised to up to 255 Strength, any stat above 128 will have the same effect as a 128 Strength stat. The Strength stat is squared and added to the Attack stat when calculating a physical attack's damage, which also takes the attackers' level and other factors into account.

Enemies do not have set Strength stats, rather, their Strength is determined randomly at the beginning of battle, and is between 56 and 63.

Strength can be boosted by equipping certain weapons and relics and mastering certain magicite. A few pieces of armor also boost the strength stat. All characters' strongest weapons from Dragons' Den grant a moderate strength boost.

Magicite Increase
Ifrit +1
Bismarck +2
Raiden +2
Gilgamesh +2
Relic Increase
Hyper Wrist +50%
Bone Wrist +5
Berserker Ring +5

### SpeedEdit

Speed increases the rate at which the ATB gauge fills. It can be increased only by Odin and the Cactuar magicite. The Speed stat +20, in addition to any Haste or Slow status, will add to the equation determining that rate at which it is filled; these statuses are calculated independently of the Speed stat.

Very few pieces of equipment boost the Speed stat.

Magicite Increase
Odin +1
Cactuar +2
Relic Increase
Bone Wrist +5
Thief's Bracer +5

### StaminaEdit

Stamina increases the chance to survive against Death attacks, the amount they are healed by Regen, and the amount of damage dealt by Poison, Sap, and HP Leak. The amount of healing per step done by Tintinabulum.

Like Strength, enemies do not have a Stamina stat, but it is not randomly selected. In its place, it is calculated as follows:

$\mbox{Stamina} = \frac{\mbox{Max HP}}{512} + 16$

If the above calculation exceeds 40, the number becomes 40 instead.

Magicite Increase
Ramuh +1
Golem +2
Lakshmi +2
Leviathan +2
Relic Increase
Bone Wrist +5

### MagicEdit

Also known as Mag.Pwr, Magic increases damage done by magical attacks. Unlike Strength, it can exceed 128. It is multiplied with the magic spell's power and the users' level into account when calculating damage.

Magicite Increase
Cait Sith +1
Zona Seeker +2
Valigarmanda +2
Relic Increase
Bone Wrist +5
Barrier Ring +2

### AttackEdit

Also known as Bat.Pwr, Attack is based on weapons equipped, along with the in-built battle stats of enemies and characters. It increases damage dealt by physical attacks, adding to the damage calculation equation with Strength and the level.

Magicite, armor and relics do not increase this stat, and only weapons can.

### DefenseEdit

Defense reduces the damage dealt by physical attacks, factoring negatively into a damage modification of the damage calculation at the end. The modification is ignored if the attack is Defense-ignoring.

$(Damage * (255 - Defense) / 256) + 1$

The +1 at the end ensures that an attack never deals 0 damage, and can always deal at least 1 damage.

No magicite or weapons increase Defense.

Relic Increase
Mythril Glove +6
White Cape +5
Bone Wrist +10
Gauntlet +5
Genji Glove +5

### EvasionEdit

Also known as Evade %, Evasion can increase the chances of an attack missing. It factors into the equation determining the miss chance before the equation reducing the miss chance which involves the Hit Rate.

It calculates the miss value as follows:

$BlockValue = (255 - Magic Defense * 2) + 1$

If this is greater than 255, it will instead be 255; if this is less than 1, it will instead be 1.

In the original SNES release, Evasion was bugged and did not work, with Magic Evasion working in place of it; this was rectified in later releases and Evasion now works for physical attacks.

No magicite increase Evasion, but several weapons do.

Relic Increase
Zephyr Cloak +10
Bone Wrist +10

### Magic DefenseEdit

Also known as Mag.Def, Magic Defense functions identically to Defense in the calculations, but for a different type of damage.

No magicite or weapons increase Magic Defense.

Relic Increase
White Cape +5
Bone Wrist +10

### Magic EvasionEdit

Magic Evasion, or MBlock%, increases the chance of a magic attack failing to connect. Much like Evasion, it factors into the equation determining the miss chance before the equation reducing the miss chance which involves the Hit Rate.

It calculates the miss value as follows:

$BlockValue = (255 - Magic Defense * 2) + 1$

If this is greater than 255, it will instead be 255; if this is less than 1, it will instead be 1.

In the original SNES release, Magic Evasion was calculated in every single equation determining hit and miss chances and Evasion was redundant, but this is rectified in later releases.

No magicite or weapons increase Magic Evasion.

Relic Increase
Zephyr Cloak +10
Bone Wrist +10

### Hit RateEdit

Hit Rate is used to reduce the chance of an attack missing. This stat only applies to enemies. If the Hit Rate multiplied by the miss value (determined by either Evasion or Magic Evasion) and divided by 256 is greater than a randomly generated number between 0 and 99, then an attack connects; if the Hit Rate is 255, it always connects.

To illustrate:

$((Hit Rate * BlockValue) / 256) > [0..99] = Hit$

### EXPEdit

Also known as Exp. Awarded after battle, EXP will increase a characters' level. Equipping the Growth Egg will double the amount of EXP earned from battles. Boss battles do not reward the player with EXP.

### Magic APEdit

Awarded after battle, the Magic AP allow the character to learn spells of their equipped magicite or equipment.

### Escape SuccessEdit

Escape Success is a hidden stat that determines the ability for the character to escape. It determines how quickly each character escapes individually (as each character needs to escape on their own, unlike many other games in the series, until no one on the screen is left), with the exception of side attacks where the value is 0 and is ignored.

Once every 2 seconds during battle, the game checks if the the party is trying to run. If they are, each character's "run success" value increases, depending on the character, and a random number between 1 to their Escape Success stat. If a character's "run success" value is greater than or equal to the "Escape Success" value and if the character's ATB gauge is full, the character will escape. If not, they will keep trying to escape and their "run success" value will increase 2 seconds later.

## Stats by CharactersEdit

### Level EvolutionEdit

Each character has a different evolution in HP and MP on levels, determined by their HP and MP growth stat. This only adds to the base HP and MP evolution that every character has additively, meaning their HP is base character HP + characters' HP growth, and MP similarly is base character MP + characters' MP growth.

The evolution by levels is as follows:

Level HP MP EXP +
3 23 8 96
4 37 13 208
5 54 18 400
