"Musicians whose dulcet tones soothe savage beasts...or kill them"

The Bard is a job in Final Fantasy V, which is part of the Fire Crystal job set. However, the actual shard is located on a chocobo later on. This job's ability "Love Song" can be used to great effect on Omega.


The main cast as Bards.

The bard's costume is designed to reflect a medieval minstrel. All five characters seem to be wearing a green shirt and headband. Lenna and Krile wear skirts, Bartz and Faris wear pants or leggings, and Galuf's shirt hangs down, covering his legs.


  • Job Command - Sing
  • Innate Abilities - None
  • Equipment - Knives, Harp

The Bard has a whole host of songs. Some songs can only obtained in the first or second world. While the effect of some songs are instantaneous, other songs are "continous", which basically means that the Bard will continue to sing until he/she is hit by an attack, killed, or silenced, though in most cases the effect of the song will retain even after the Bard stops singing.

  • Sinewy Etude - Continuously raises the party's strength.
  • Mana's Paean - Continuously raises the party's magic.
  • Swift Song - Continuously raises the party's speed. Found in the King's Chamber of Surgate Castle
  • Mighty March - The party regains health as long as the Bard sings. Found in Lix
  • Hero's Rime - Continuously raises the party's levels.
  • Requiem - Damages the undead. Instantaneous. Found in Quelb
  • Romeo's Ballad - Stops enemies for a few turns. Instantaneous. Found in Istory
  • Alluring Air - Confuses all enemies. Instantaneous. Found in Crescent
