Final Fantasy X-2 Edit

X-2 Stop can be inflicted via the use of certain dressphere abilities, such as Thief's Borrowed Time or Songstress's Brake-dance. A unique variation occurs in Psychic's Time Trip (International or HD Remaster) which completely freezes all onscreen action, including ATB, and allows the user to enter any additional command except Spherechange.

Final Fantasy XII Edit

The character is frozen in time and cannot move or act. Remove with a Chronos Tear.

Stop is available to purchase at Mt Bur-Omisace and requires the Time Magick license 6, which costs 45 LP. The spell itself costs 3,700 gil and uses 20 MP to cast. It should be noted that while stopped, other status effects are also halted.

For example, Sap will stop draining HP for the duration of Stop. This fact can be abused by casting Reverse followed by Stop on a character, thus allowing the character to absorb all forms of damage until Stop wears off. This is especially useful for bosses which always target the nearest character, as equipping the other party members with ranged weapons will keep them alive while the Reversed character is taking all the hits.

In the International Zodiac Job System version, Stop is Time Magick License 5 that can only be used by the Time Mage job class. It can be bought from the merchant at the Nam-Yensa Sandsea for 900 gil.
