Powerful swordsmen who can wield two weapons at once and use secret skills to evoke the power of wood and earth.

Ninja (忍者, Ninja?) is a job exclusive to humes in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. The job has an emphasis on speed and inflicting status effects. The Ninja is able to Dual Wield weapons in combat, greatly increasing his Attack power.

However, it should be noted that the natural progression of Soldier to Thief to Ninja leads to a very low Magick stat, meaning that the Ninja's many Veil attacks will be extremely weak, but one may find that each ability can cause a status effect, which when combined with their potent speed and offensive power, can make them quite deadly. The low cost of the Ninja's abilities mean Turbo MP is a good Passive ability choice, as the Ninja can still cast every turn, but with better damage and accuracy.

Maquis the Phantasm, an elite member of Duelhorn, is a Ninja with the ability to duplicate himself.

The Nightfall class used by Ewen is essentially a Ninja class as well, using the same Ninjutsu skill set and learning them from the same weapons.

The Dual Wield ability of a Ninja is utilized by Frimelda Lotice as soon as she is acquired, letting her deal a great amount of damage.


To use the Ninja, a character must master four Thief A-Abilities.
