FFX Overkill

An Overkill (PS2).

Overkill is a term used in Final Fantasy X that occurs when the character defeats a fiend or other enemy with excessive damage. All enemies have an Overkill damage requirement stat, and if a character lands a killing blow dealing damage equal to or greater than this number, the word "Overkill" appears before the fiend dissipates into pyreflies. Overkilled enemies generally award twice the AP and items compared to usual; though this is not always the case. Overkill does not have any impact on equipment drops.

For example, the Area Conquest monster Don Tonberry will drop three Farplane Winds or a Dark Matter. If Don Tonberry is overkilled, however, it will drop six Farplane Winds or two Dark Matters.

It is a good strategy to always strive for Overkills, as the extra items and AP will make the party stronger, which will make subsequent Overkills easier to get.

The Overkill value is 1.5 times the total HP (but no higher than 99999 damage, except for Magic Urn), except in the cases of enemies with greater-than-average HP, such as Horned enemies, the humanoid ogres such as Wendigo, mechanical constructs such as Defender Z and rarities such as Adamantoise. All aeons summoned by Belgemine in Remiem Temple have their Overkill value equal to their total HP.

If an enemy is killed with an attack that hits multiple times, such as Blitz Ace, overkill is determined based on the total damage. The only exception to this is Doublecast; in this case, each spell's damage is individual, and only the damage of the spell that finishes the enemy off will be taken into account for overkill.

Sinspawn Ammes and Tanker are the only enemies that can not be overkilled, because it is only possible to inflict approximately 700 points of damage to them (with critical hits), but the required amount is 1000.

EtymologyEdit

Overkill is the use of excessive force or action that goes further than is necessary to achieve its goal.

TriviaEdit

  • In the HD Remaster and International versions, if the player overkills Penance while it has any arms alive, an Overkill indicator will pop up on the arms as well as the body.
  • If Tidus deals enough damage to Overkill with Blitz Ace, but fails to perform the final hit with the blitzball, the Overkill indicator will appear later, as the enemy dies.
