Life's Anthem FFIV IOS

Sing in Final Fantasy IV (iOS).

Sing to trigger a variety of effects. Hold down the button to charge and access more songs.

Sing (うたう or 歌う, Utau?), also known as Bardsong, is a command ability usually associated with the Bard job class. Depending on the song that is sung, Sing usually supports the party in some way, either by applying a status effect to the whole party, or temporarily raising their attributes for the remainder of battle. Some songs apply negative status effects to enemies, for example Lullaby inflicts Sleep.

Sing is usually disabled if the character is inflicted by Silence.

Sing is used by the Bard job class. Each of the harps gives a different song to sing. Bards use their Sing ability to support their allies or, in the 3D versions, deal damage to their enemy.

Edward can use Bardsong. In the 2D versions, he needs to equip a harp, but in the 3D versions this is not required since everyone can equip the Bardsong Augment. Bardsongs strengthen and heal the party or inflict status ailments on opponents.

Edward returns as the only character with the Bardsong command. Like its predecessor, a harp is required to be equipped on Edward if the player wishes to use it.

While Garnet and Yuna lack access to Bard abilities, several of their Soul Breaks refer to singing: Garnet's Song of Memories and Enveloping Warmth, the latter which is named after the Japanese name of Final Fantasy IX track "Thy Warmth", and Yuna's Hymn of the Fayth, Tenets of the Fayth, which in the Japanese is called "Gospel of the Fayth", and Song for Spira.
