A young man who, together with his childhood friend Lulu, joins Yuna's traveling party as her guardian. A blitzball player and coach, Wakka has a ready smile and a caring disposition.
Wakka is a Guardian whose combat role is Physical Support.
He has one of the highest opening Accuracy scores, yet his stats are considered as low to average. He is as good a Ranger unit as a player is likely to get early on. Bows, blitzballs, and thrown weapons are comparatively rare unlike swords and lances, and Wakka could be stuck wielding a dagger on the front line until one of these weapons appears. He can still make an impact provided he has enough defense to survive. Wakka has a surprisingly high Mind stat for a support despite having no White Magic, exceeding even Paladins like Cecil and Warrior of Light, which shortens the duration of status ailments.
