Final Fantasy

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Barrage, also known as X-Fight, Trigger Happy, Double Cut, Sshot, Shot, or Rapid Fire, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. Barrage usually allows a character to perform a physical attack more than once each turn. It is usually connected to the Ranger Job Class, and the Gunner Job Class in later games in the series.




Final Fantasy III

In the DS version, the Ranger's Barrage attacks four random targets at half damage.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Rapid Fire is a Band ability formed by combining Ceodore and Tsukinowa's attack commands with Palom's Black Magic. It attacks all enemies with a bombardment of fireballs.

Final Fantasy V

Rapid Fire is a level 4 ability for the Ranger job. It hits four random targets at half damage, each hit ignoring defense.

Final Fantasy VI

The Master's Scroll Relic, known as the Offering in the SNES version, grants this effect. While equipped, the Fight command (replaced with X-Fight in the SNES version, but unaltered in the GBA version) hits four randomly selected targets for half damage each time; however, certain weapons ignore the damage penalty due to special damage algorithms (see Master's Scroll Bug for more info).

Final Fantasy VII

The Double Cut Materia allows for characters to attack more than once. At level 1, characters can attack an enemy twice in one turn at full damage. At level two, they attack four random enemies. The similar Slash-All Materia lets a character attack all enemies at once.

Final Fantasy VIII

Main article: Shot

Irvine Kinneas' Shot Limit Break allows the player to press R1 to fire several times against one enemy.

Final Fantasy IX

Rapid Fire appears as an enemy ability used by Python, it deals minor non-elemental damage.

Final Fantasy X-2

The Gunner can make use of the Trigger Happy ability, which allows the player to press R1 to fire several shots in quick succession. A character who is using Haste will also benefit from an increased rate of fire. Trigger Happy Lv 2 and Trigger Happy Lv 3 increases the duration time of Trigger Happy.

Final Fantasy XI

Barrage is a Ranger ability, available starting at level 30 and allows a ranger to output a lot of damage very quickly. The ability can be used once every five minutes, and will randomly select a number of arrows between 2 and 6 and shoot them all together. This can further be boosted by Hunter's Bracers +1 (+1 shot) and/or Desultor Tassets that have been augmented with "Barrage+1". The ability creates a lot of enmity if all the hits are successful. It is, however, a very useful ability for Rangers to have in order to build TP quickly.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Fran learns Barrage at level 45. Its power can be upgraded by equipping the Dueling Mask Accessory, which gives the Hunter's Monograph bonus.

Balthier has a similar ability called "Tri-Shot", which attacks a single enemy three times. "Rapid Fire" appears as a separate ability from Barrage, and is a support ability for Balthier that reduces the time between his attacks.

Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions

Balthier's Sky Pirate job has the ability Barrage, which costs 1200 JP. It lets Balthier attack an enemy four times in a row, each shot dealing half damage.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King

Double Attack is a level 1 Sword Skill that has a level 100 cap. It allows the user to attack the enemy multiple times, and the higher the skill's level, the higher the chance of using the skill.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Bartz's EX Burst is "Spellblade - Dual Wield - Rapid Fire", based on a set-up of abilities from Final Fantasy V. The attack launches eight strikes against the opponent, after which Bartz forms the Brave Blade and performs a final attack.

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Barrage spells are the strongest group of multi-target damaging Magic spells in the Ancient spellbook. They are also the highest hitting, and most costly, of the spells in all three of the spell books. They hit all enemies on an adjacent square to the target square. The barrage spells all cost two blood runes, four death runes, and some spell-specific runes.

The barrage spells are as follows:

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: fictional appearances
This article is about the Generation One Insecticon. For the Generation One Autobot Micromaster, see Barrage (Autobot).
Barrage is a Decepticon Insecticon in the Generation One continuity family.

Barrage believes winning is not enough, all must be leveled to the ground, and then the rubble should be burned and the ashes scattered to the wind. Merciless and cruel, he feels kindness of any sort is allowing the enemy hope, and that is unacceptable. He will shoot the retreating and the wounded, and even those taken prisoner. Barrage takes no prisoners. Then he'll keep firing until the battlefield is a smoldering crater. When he's deployed to a battlefield, even the other Decepticons take a few steps back. He's disliked even among their ranks. Maybe it's those beady, creepy little red eyes.



Dreamwave comics continuity

After the fragmentation of the Decepticon forces following Megatron's seeming destruction in a space bridge accident, Barrage joined Ratbat's Ultracons. Along with fellow Ultracons Chop Shop and Venom, he was involved in an altercation with Ultra Magnus, Blaster, and Grimlock. Barrage accompanied his leader to the Autobot/Decepticon peace ceremony at Tyger Pax, where he granted a brief, violent 'interview' to the holo-image of Slamdance. The Age of Wrath, Part 1

When Megatron and his Aerospace Extermination Squadron retook Cybertron and reunified the Decepticons, Barrage was assigned to supervise enslaved Autobot miners at Internment Camp Pi in Praxus. While there, he and Octane delivered a brutal beatdown to the rebellious Cliffjumper, but were beaten back by Brawn. The Age of Wrath, Part 2

Barrage, along with Chop Shop, Ransack, and Venom, remained on Cybertron following the departure of the Ark and the Nemesis. The planet's chronic energon shortage reduced them to a vampiric existence, forcing them to capture Micromasters and drain them of their fuel. While pursuing Falcon and Flanker in the Wastelands, they ran into the middle of a conflict between the Hot Rod Patrol and Race Track Patrol. Destined For Nothing

After devouring Falcon they soon set upon the other Micromasters, but were driven back by the timely arrival of Groundshaker, who left with the Hot Rod Patrol. The subsequent arrival of Shockwave prevented them from devouring the Race Track Patrol, but he did toss them Flanker as a snack. The Gray Race The Insecticons subsequently abducted the Race Track Patrol and several other Micromasters from Little Iacon, in an attempt to ferret out the Hot Rod Patrol and gain some new recruits in the process. When Blaze Master refused to sign up, Barrage shot him unconscious. En route to Decepticon HQ, Barrage's sonic rifle was stolen by the kleptomaniacal Chop Shop. Recipe For Hate Upon reaching headquarters, Barrage and his cohorts were caught in the middle of a Micromaster invasion. After watching Ransack fall, Barrage was decapitated by Roadhandler. Victims of the Revolution

Devil's Due G.I. Joe vs the Transformers comics continuity

As part of Serpent O.R.'s forces, Barrage defended the newly unified Decepticon army's base against a combined Autobot/G.I. Joe strike force. In the course of the battle, he was shot by Lady Jaye. The Art of War, Part 5

IDW comics continuity


Barrage was stationed on board the Thanatos. When Thunderwing returned to decimate Cybertron once more, Barrage joined the battle under Headstrong's command, serving as ground forces backing up Optimus Prime and the Wreckers in their struggle. Stormbringer issue 4


Generation One

  • Barrage (Deluxe Insecticon, 1985)
    • Accessories: Gun, sword
Don't laugh at his guns.

Barrage transforms into a predominantly green and yellow rhinoceros beetle. As a robot, it is among the most posable of all Generation One toys. It is also notable for being among the very few insect Transformers to have all of its beast mode legs folded away and out of sight in robot mode.

Barrage's mold was originally released as part of the Armored Insect Battalion Beetras toyline by Japanese toymaker Takatoku Toys. The original version of this mold was named Beet Gadol.


  • Barrage, like all of the Deluxe Insecticons, was originally designed by Takatoku Toys for the Armored Insect Battalion Beetras (機甲虫隊ビートラス) toyline. Takatoku Toys went out of business before the end of the Beetras line and their assets were purchased by fellow Japanese toymaker Bandai. Bandai licensed Takatoku's Beetras molds (alongside toys from Special Armored Battalion Dorvack and Super Dimensional Fortress Macross) to Hasbro in 1985 to make the Deluxe Insecticons.
  • Neither Barrage nor the rest of the Deluxe Insecticons ever appeared in an episode of the original Transformers cartoon series. As none of the Deluxe Insecticons were based on toys owned by Takara there is little likelihood that they will ever be reissued by TakaraTomy or Hasbro.
  • Energon Insecticon seems to be an homage to Barrage, sharing his alt mode and colors.
