- "Soothsayers who can predict natural disasters - and direct them at foes."
The Oracle is a Job in the Game Boy Advance and iOS versions of Final Fantasy V, found in the secret sea chasm. The secret sea chasm can be entered with a submarine once all the four tablets in the merged world have been collected; it is located underwater south of Phantom Village, and does not appear on the map.
The Oracle is the strongest mage job in the Advance and iOS remakes, boasting the highest Magic Power in the game, but requires a secondary command to reliably damage enemies due to the unpredictable nature of its Condemn and Predict commands. The Oracle also suffers due to low Strength, and its inability to naturally equip any equipment to boost elemental attacks outside of the Holy element with staves.
The characters dress in ornate robes and circlets with a crystal on the headgear. The job class's design concept seems to be based on the idea of how fortunetellers dressed.
Oracles have the highest Magic Power of any class in the game. Condemn becomes faster as the Job levels go up. Both Condemn and Predict have a chance of benefiting the enemies rather than the party; as such they are risky commands.
Condemn has the following effects:
- Rejuvenation - HP restore
- Recuperation - Esuna
- Brimstone - Fire damage
- Black Frost - Ice damage
- Judgment - Thunder damage
- Salienta - Frog
- Still Wing - Stop
The level chosen with the Predict command affects which event occurs. Level 1 costs 1 MP and takes very long for the prediction to come true, while level 2 and level 3 cost more MP (3 and 7 respectively) but also has a shorter charge time. The attack used in the prediction is dependent on the prediction that happened previously with that character, as well as the last digit of the caster's MP at the time the prediction comes true. The power is dependent on the last digit of the character's HP at the time the prediction comes true.
