Saber (セーバー, Sēbā?) is an ability in the Final Fantasy series. It enhances physical damage.


Final FantasyEdit


Black Wizard - SABR

Saber, also known as SABR in the NES release, is a level 7 Black Magic spell which increases the caster's Attack attribute by 16 points and the caster's Accuracy attribute by 10 points. This effect can be stacked by multiple castings, but only lasts until the end of battle, or until the unit is knocked out or petrified.

The spell can be bought at Onrac and can only be learned by the Black Wizard class. In the GBA/PSP/iOS releases it costs 25 MP to cast. It can also be cast by using the Giant's Glove as an item.

In the NES release, this spell is bugged and does nothing.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

XII Saber is an enemy skill that doubles the user's physical attack damage, but they also receive the same amount of damage each time they strike. The skill is typically used by tougher enemies as a desperation move. Occasionally, enemies will gain an Auto-Saber effect when their HP drops to a certain amount. Alternatively they could start with Auto-Saber but lose it when their HP drops too low.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

TA2 Illua can use Saber in all encounters to increase her own Accuracy and Attack.



The sabre or saber is a sword that usually has a curved, single-edged blade and a rather large hand guard, covering the knuckles of the hand as well as the thumb and forefinger.
