BD Special is a main command in Bravely Default, these weapon based moves can be unlocked from rebuilding Norende Village, and the player can use these abilities in battle to turn the tide of victory into their favor.

Every special move has a condition that must be met using a specific weapon type. Once unlocked, the move can be unleashed in battle in a character specific cutscene, complete with that character's own theme song. The music plays an important part, as the party's abilities will be granted enhanced status for the duration of the song. While the effects diminish as the song ends, there are ways to extend and even expand the party's enhancements. By using the Special Move with another character before the previous song ends, the new moves' music will carry over the previous status enhancement, allowing them to combine attacks and set up powerful combos. This even works with the Summon Friend's special move.

Special Moves are the main way to deal the true maximum damage (999,999 damage), though only during Bravely Second (as any other time has the 9,999 damage cap, which is easily reached).

CustomizingEdit

The ability to use Special Moves will be granted partway through the beginning of the game. After which, further moves can be unlocked by upgrading the Special Move Shop in the Norende. The player can unlock a total of three Special Moves per weapon type, and each can be further customized with modifiers found by upgrading the various Parts shops found in Norende.

Every Special Move comes with four modifiers that can be swapped out and upgraded at any time from the Special menu. The player can change the type of damage done, family weakness, power boost, and ailment status given. Certain moves from the Staff and Rod have even more modifiers like HP and MP recovery, consecutive turns, and other curative effects.

Not only can they change the effects of a moves power, they can also customize the cosmetic changes, like the name of the move, and what each character will shout upon using their moves. These changes apply even to moves through the Summon Friend, so the player can be creative.

Profanity FilterEdit

A profanity filter prevents players from using swears on the names of special moves. It can misfire and block names just for including some short phrases that are obscure slang.
