SOS Abilities are a set of recurring abilities in the series. First appearing as SOS Shell in Final Fantasy V, SOS abilities have grown to include just about all of the positive Statuss, and are only active so long as the user is in Critical. The SOS ability cannot be Dispelled while active, and will automatically reapply itself should the character be KO'ed and revived back into Critical. The moment the user is restored to above their Critical HP limit, the ability will wear off.
The following is a list of SOS abilities that have appeared throughout the series:
- SOS Shell (aka Magic Shell) - Automatically puts the user in Shell status.
- SOS Protect - Automatically puts the user in Protect status.
- SOS Haste/Last Haste - Automatically puts the user in Haste status.
- SOS Wall - Automatically puts the user in Protect and Shell status.
- SOS Reflect - Automatically puts the user in Reflect status.
- SOS Regen - Automatically puts the user in Regen status.
- SOS NulBlaze - Automatically puts the user in NulBlaze status.
- SOS NulFrost - Automatically puts the user in NulFrost status.
- SOS NulShock - Automatically puts the user in NulShock status.
- SOS NulTide - Automatically puts the user in NulTide status.
- SOS Overdrive - Increases Overdrive gauge gain.
- SOS Spellspring - Reduces cost of spells and techniques to 0.
- SOS Critical - Always deal Critical Hits.
- SOS ???? - As long as the user is in Critical, all healing items and spells heal for 9999 and all damage attacks, spells, and items will deal 9999 per hit.
While the following aren't named "SOS", they still follow the same format:
- Adrenaline - Doubles attack.
- Last Stand - Doubles defense.
- Spellbreaker - Doubles magic.
- Chivalry - Increases Attack and Magic.
- Gallantry - Increases Defense and Magic Defense.
- Restore HP/Critical: Recover HP - Regains half of Max HP/HP if character survives an attack while in Critical.
- Last Berserk - Automatically puts the user in Berserk status.
- Critical: Recover MP - Regains MP.
- Critical: Quick - Can attack quicker.
- Critical: Vanish - Automatically puts the user in Vanish status.
- Critical: Evasion - Increases Evasion.
Adrenaline and Last Stand appear in the Nintendo DS version of the game only as Augments. Adrenaline is received through Cid after modifying the Falcon and by giving him 2 Augments. Last Stand is received at the Tower of Zot, and if Tellah had been given 1 or more Augments.
Magic Shell, also known as Magiwall or Barrier, is the Level 1 ability of the Mystic Knight class. It requires 10 ABP to learn, and once mastered, will automatically activate Shell when in Critical if the character is a Freelancer.
The Barrier Ring cast Shell while the Mythril Glove cast Protect on the user once they enter Critical status. The Princess Ring, a female-exclusive relic, casts both Protect and Shell when the user is Critical. There is a dummied ability that cast Reflect when the user came under the Critical status.
There are numerous SOS abilities in Final Fantasy X. The SOS Overdrive ability is an auto ability for weapons. It is the SOS version of Double Overdrive, charging the Overdrive gauge at double the rate when the character's HP is Critical. It can be customized to a weapon with 20 Gambler's Spirit items.
The SOS abilities for armor focus on granting a status to casters. Each of the four elements have their own respective SOS ability which provide completely immunity from an element when the character with the respective equipped armor via the Nul- statuses. Due to their functionality, they work like SOS versions of the elemental "proof" abilities. The SOS NulBlaze auto ability grants the user the NulBlaze status, giving them full immunity to the Fire element as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with a Bomb Core item.
The SOS NulShock auto ability grants the user the NulShock status, giving them full immunity to the Lightning element as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with a Lightning Marble item. The SOS NulTide auto ability grants the user the NulTide status, giving them full immunity to the Water element as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with a Dragon Scale item. The SOS NulFrost auto ability grants the user the NulFrost status, giving them full immunity to the Ice element as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with an Arctic Wind item.
The remainder of the SOS abilities for armor are all spiritual predecessors of a number of the abilities with an "Auto-" prefix. The SOS Shell auto ability grants the user the Shell status as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with eight Lunar Curtain items. The SOS Protect auto ability grants the user the Protect status as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with eight Light Curtain items.
The SOS Reflect auto ability grants the user the Reflect status as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with eight Star Curtain items. The SOS Haste auto ability grants the user the Haste status as long as their HP is critical, and can be customized to an armor with 20 Chocobo Feather items.
The SOS Regen auto ability grants the user the Regen status when their HP enters critical. Unlike other SOS abilities, it remains with the player after they have left the Critical status, however it becomes susceptible to Dispel. It can be customized to an an armor with 12 Healing Spring items. Customizing SOS Regen to armor is part of a Gil trick involving Kottos at the Monster Arena.
