Battle Edit

The Mystery Ninja attacks by using items on the party to simulate magic, and uses a weak physical attack. She can use Spider Web which always inflicts the Slow status, and also can use Impaler to inflict the Mini status. In higher levels, she can use her Switch Bolt attack either against all party members or just one. Although she gains power alongside the party, no matter when she is fought she is not a serious threat.

Recruitment Edit

After the battle, the party is given five multiple choice questions. If they answer correctly, the Mystery Ninja will join the party as Yuffie. If they fail, the Mystery Ninja steals an item from the player and flees to be fought again elsewhere. She can trick the player with a fake save point, and will steal from the player and flee after they open the menu near it.
