Protect (プロテス, Purotesu?, lit. Protes), also known as Barrier and Safe, is a recurring positive status effect in the series. It is often granted to a character through the use of the Protect spell, the auto-ability Auto-Protect, the item Light Curtain, or the Blue Magic spell Mighty Guard. It typically reduces damage inflicted by from physical attacks for a set amount of time.
Protect is a positive status effect the player can use from their White Mage, White Wizard, Red Mage, Red Wizard, or Knight. It raises the target's defense slightly. It will not wear off after a set of time and can be stacked like the Temper spell. Protect will only wear off if the character either dies or has Dispel used on them. Protected character will have a glowing orange outline around them.
Protect is a positive status that can be acquired using either the Protect spell or the Protect Tome. The spell raises Defense depending on the spell's level.
The Protect status can be provided using the Protect spell, the Defender as an item, or using the Minne song from the Madhura Harp with the Sing command. The status is somewhat random: it can nullify 25% or 50% or even more, while the song can be increased in effect by Job-leveling.

Protect is gained from the Protect spell and halve damage from physical attacks. The 3D version an subsequent 3D versions based on it; the Protect status now exist. In the 2D versions, there's no Protect status.
In the 2D versions, the Protect spell instead raises a character's Defense. It can be stacked until a character's Defense reaches 255.
Protect can be granted through the spell Protect, or through using the Murasame, Defender, or Protect Staff as items on party members. Edward's Guardian's Ballad song grants Protect and Shell to the whole party.
Protect may be gained by casting the Protect spell, the Blue Magic spell Mighty Guard, using the item Iron Draft via the Drink ability, and using the Mix command to combine a Dragon Fang with a Phoenix Down and create the item Dragon Defense.
Protect, originally translated as Safe, the status can be granted using Protect, Mighty Guard, and many accessories and Gau's Rages. It reduces damage done from physical attacks to 170/256 (33% damage reduction) and is represented by a yellow aura around the protected character.
Barrier cuts physical damage by half and can be gained by using the Barrier Materia or using the Wall spell or the Protect Ring accessory. The item Light Curtain can be used to grant protect to all allies. The Enemy Skill Big Guard casts Barrier along with MBarrier and Haste. On the barrier gauge shown to the right, it appears as the red gauge.
The status returns as Barrier, and just like in Final Fantasy VII, it cuts the physical damage by half and can be gained by using the Barrier Materia, Wall Materia, or some accessories. Cait Sith's Courage Boost! DMW grants the Barrier status along with many statuses, and the status can randomly be implemented via the DMW as well when not in modulating phase.
Protect returns as a positive status that reduces physical damage by half and lasts 32 seconds. It can be granted by casting the spell Protect that can be drawn from various enemies, using a Protect Stone item, using Selphie's Limit Break Wall, or casting Quistis's Limit Break Mighty Guard, which will grant Protect regardless of Crisis Level. Protect can also be provided using the Guardian Force ability Auto-Protect.
Carbuncle will also cast it it during its long summoning animation. When used, the character will glow yellow, similar to previous games. How long the status lasts depends on the character's Spirit and the battle speed.
Protect halves received physical damage. This status effect can be gained from either casting the White Magic spell Protect, Kimahri's Ronso Rage Mighty Guard, wearing an armor that has Auto-Protect, using the item Light Curtain, or by Rikku mixing items to give the Protect status.
Protect is similar to its Final Fantasy X predecessor and reduces physical damage. It can be cast if one of the player characters is a White Mage who has already learned Shell or has the Helios Guard Garment Grid equipped.
The character is enveloped in a magick field, increasing defense and reducing physical damage taken. The effect is temporary.
Protect reduces physical damage by 25% and can be granted by using the Protect or Protectga spell, or by equipping the Shielded Armor. An enemy skill called Greater Barrier grants the status along with Shell. Guns and measures ignore the Protect status.
Protect is a status enhancement which reduces physical damage against the target by 33%. There is also an upgraded version of the status called Protectra which raises the physical resistance by 50%, but with shorter duration. Some accessories like the Guardian Amulet and the Shield Talisman grant Protect status either at the start or during a battle, although they only do this once. Aegisol casts Protect on the party on the field. Deprotect cancels out the Protect status, and Protect can also heal a target from Deprotect.
Protect reduces received physical damage by 25% and can be bestowed by Protect and Protectga. It can be removed with Dispel, Deprotect, and Deprotega.
Angel of Valhalla can bestow Protect on Lightning with either the spell Protect or his Inspire ability. He can gains them at bond level 2.
Protect can be granted using Protect, Protectja, Wall, or wearing the Lordly Robe and using the Tynar Rouge as an accessory. Protect does not directly reduce damage from attacks in this installment, but subtracts the attacker's physical AT by 1/3 in the damage formula. If the attack is done with a weapon that uses Magickal Attack or Speed, then Protect instead reduces that stat for the attack.
In addition, physical attacks that have stat-dependent success rates will face a penalty such that revised stat = [stat * 2/3] when targeting a Protected unit; consequently, Protect can lower either the success rate or the damage of physical attacks. The status lasts for 32 ticks.
An aura of light covers the body, raising defense.
