Riot Blade appeared as an ability in the original Final Fantasy XIV. At the initial release, Riot Blade was an ability learned by Gladiators at rank 30. The ability delivered a ranged attack with a chance to decrease defense when executed from behind the target. In addition, a second variant of Riot Blade appeared and could be learned by Gladiators at rank 50. The ability unleashed a shockwave, increasing enemy enmity and dealing ranged slashing damage. The ability also had the side effect of leaving the user under the Pacification status effect for a short time.

Riot Blade appears in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn as a Gladiator ability available at level 12. The ability deals damage to a single enemy with a potency of 100 and costs 80 TP to use. When combo linked from Fast Blade, Riot Blade deals damage with a potency of 230 and restores some MP of the user.

Riot Blade
Power is focused in both hands and fired as countless blades.
—Menu description of Terra's EX Burst

Riot Blade appears as Terra's EX Burst and receives a 3D animation. Terra attacks the opponent with Blizzara, then charges energy into her arms. The player must then rapidly tap Left and Circle to fill two power gauges within an unspecified time limit. Filling the gauges means as much power concentrated as possible, which Terra releases by spinning and firing four blades at the opponent. Failure to fill the gauges will result in Terra firing fewer blades with a less dramatic execution.

Riot Blade is notably one of the most powerful EX Bursts in the game, outclassed only by Cloud's Omnislash and Tidus's Blitz Ace in Dissidia.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012 Riot Blade returns as Terra's EX Burst with unchanged effects. In Dissidia 012, the newcomers' EX Bursts, mainly Gilgamesh's Strongest Sword and Tifa's Final Heaven, outclass Terra's EX Burst. However, Cloud, Tidus, Gilgamesh and Tifa only have full power for their EX Bursts under certain conditions, while Riot Blade's power is fixed.

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2015)Edit

Dissidia Due to the absence of EX Bursts, Riot Blade now functions as an HP Attack, learned by Terra at Level 5. It now functions as a counter move. An blue oval shield will appear in front of Terra and if an enemy manages to hit the shield, they will stagger and then a blue, Cross shaped projectile will hit the opponent, dealing HP Damage.

Riot Blade is one of four 'counter' HP Attacks introduced in the game, the others being Firion's Revenge of Arms, Bartz's Knight and Vaan's Ground Zero.
