Thievery (盗賊のあかし, Tōzoku no Akashi?) is a recurring ability in Final Fantasy series and is associated with Zidane Tribal.

## Appearances Edit

### Final Fantasy IX Edit

IX Thievery is the eighth and last of Zidane Skills. It costs 8 MP to use and takes 100 AP to learn. Once Zidane has learned Thievery, he also gains the ability to use his strongest Dyne attack, Grand Lethal. Thievery can be learned from two weapons: The Tower and Angel Bless.

Its damage is calculated as follows:

$\mbox{Damage}=\left \lfloor \frac{( \mbox{Number of successful steals}) \times (\text{Speed})}{2}\right \rfloor$

Successful steals by Zidane, Blank, Marcus and Cinna throughout the game count towards the total, including steals before Thievery is learned. They count even if the inventory slot for the stolen item is full.

For example, if the player has successfully stolen 100 items, and Zidane's Speed stat is 30, then Thievery will do exactly 1,500 damage to the target. Because of this, it is potentially one of the strongest attacks in the game, tied with Freya's Dragon's Crest, Beatrix and Steiner's Shock, and Quina's Frog Drop. All of these abilities, except Shock, ignore both the target's Defense and the Protect status.
