FFV Krile using Shirahadori

Krile using Shirahadori.

Shirahadori (しらはどり, Shirahadori?) or (白刃取り, Shiraha Dori?), also known as Blade Grasp, Swrdgrab, Evade, or Blade Block, is a recurring ability related to the Samurai job class.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy V Edit

Catch and stop enemy attacks.
—Description

Shirahadori (also known as Evade) is a Level 3 Samurai job class that costs 60 ABP. It gives the character a 25% chance to completely evade an attack before normal Hit Rate calculations begin.

Final Fantasy XI Edit

Shirahadori is a Yagudo weaponskill used by certain Notorious Monsters in Shadowreign areas, which pins a target in place.

Final Fantasy Tactics Edit

Evade non-ranged physical attacks.
—Description

Shirahadori (also called Blade Grasp) is reaction ability the Samurai class learns for 700 JP. This ability lets the unit avoid any physical attacks easily, including, despite its description, arrow/bolt attacks (but not abilities that ignore Evasion; this glitch was not fixed in the PSP port).

This is widely-known as a highly unbalanced ability since its success rate is equal to the amount of Bravery a character has. Therefore, if a character with 100 Bravery equips Shirahadori, s/he will evade all physical attacks that do not ignore Evasion. Interestingly, when the A.I. deals with such absolute failure rate they will change their tactics to avoid this ability, or simply do nothing. If the player limits their Bravery at 97, enemies will try to attack even with a 3% chance to hit. Thus, many players prefer to have Bravery at 97 rather than maxing it out.
