Swordplay (剣技, Kengi?), also known as All Swordskill and Sword Skill, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is a skillset usable by the Warrior and similar jobs.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XEdit

X Swordplay is Tidus's Overdrive skill. Tidus learns new Swordplay commands by using the previous commands more in battle. Tidus's four Swordplay skills are Spiral Cut, Slice & Dice, Energy Rain, and Blitz Ace.

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

X-2 Swordplay is Warrior's skillset. It consists of six elemental attacks named after Tidus's elemental swords, four stat break abilities which once were part of Auron's Sphere Grid path, and two Delay skills which were part of Tidus's Sphere Grid path. Swordplay is well-used on enemies with high Magic Defense but with elemental weaknesses,as Swordplay covers all elements that Final Fantasy X-2 has.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

FFT Swordplay is the action ability of the Sword Saint, Rune Knight, and the undead Knight.
