FF4PSP Enemy Ability Target

Target in Final Fantasy IV (PSP).

Targeting (ターゲッティング, Tāgettingu?), occasionally translated as Targetting, Search or Target, is a recurring enemy ability in the series. In itself, it does nothing, but it indicates the target of its user's next attack.


Final Fantasy IVEdit

IV Trap Door uses Target to indicate the player that it is about to use the lethal Ninth Dimension attack on.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

FFIV-I- Trap Door returns, and so does its use of Target.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY Trap Door returns, and so does its use of Target. Barnabas, and Dr. Lugae also makes use of the ability.

Final Fantasy VEdit

V Level Checker and Omega Mk.II use Search (Target in the PlayStation version), to indicate the player who will be the target of the next attack.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

VI Fiend uses Targeting to indicate the character that will be targeted by its Fiendish Rage attack. Was translated as Targetting in the older translations.

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

XIII An ability called Targeting is used by the Ushumgal Subjugator to indicate the player that will be targeted by Pinpoint Beam and Photon Blaster shortly. While this is very similar to the other uses of Targeting and has the same English name, the Japanese name is different: (ロックオン, Rokku On?, lit. Lock-on).

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

XIV In the battle against the Ghrah Luminary in Pharos Sirius (Hard), an enemy called Corruption will sometimes be spawned; this enemy will use Targeting on a player to indicate that it is going to copy them. Targeting causes a tether to attach to the targeted player; this tether can be dragged onto other enemies in the room to cause them to be targeted instead. Doing so is a good idea, because Corruption will be much weaker if it is copying the spiders or birds instead of a player character.

Bravely DefaultEdit


The Ranger job ability Targeting, also used by Artemia, is not related to the other uses of Targeting, and in fact, has a different Japanese name: (エイミング, Eimingu?, lit. Aiming). It cost 12 MP to use, deals 1.25 damage, and ignores Default status.
