"Trainers whose open hearts and strong wills allow them to capture and control enemy monsters"

The Beastmaster, also known as Trainer or Mediator, is a job in Final Fantasy V, which is given to you after the Fire Crystal shatters.


The main cast as Mediators.

The Mediator seems to like dressing up in wool, and some even take the ram's horns. This doesn't make much sense, since most monsters you deal with aren't really cuddly. Bartz, Galuf, and Krile have the same costumes, although Krile's is more covered. Faris appears to be wearing ear muffs and has a tail.


  • Job Command - Catch
  • Innate Abilities - None
  • Equipment - Knives, Whip

The catch command lets you capture an enemy during battle, provided they have 1/8 of their HP remaining. Korango's Gourd reduces this to 1/2 HP. If you really want to catch a particular monster, you may wish to try Gravity or the Blue Magic Missile. These will both reduce the health of the foe and prevent it from dying it, allowing you to catch it easier.

Once you've caught something, you can release it to have the captured creature attack Summon style. For unknown reasons, most summoned creatures do a Strong Fight when they're released, which really lives up to its name, doing thousands worth of damage even early in the First World!!

The stat modifiers of Beastmasters are:

  • Strength: +13
  • Agility: +1
  • Stamina: +8
  • Magic: -3
