"Always berserk in battle, these feral warriors sacrifice commands to gain attack strength and power."

The Berserker is a Job in Final Fantasy V, which is given to you after the Water Crystal shatters.


The main cast as Berserkers.

As berserkers, the characters wear animal furs, which look like a wolf for the guys and cats for the girls. Bartz, Galuf, and Faris all have similar clothes, Lenna's is more revealing, and Krile's seems to completely cover her up. Krile's costume looks somewhat similar to a Japanese "disguise pajama".


  • Job Command - None
  • Innate Abilities - Berserk
  • Equipment - Knives, Axe

The Berserker has no actual Job command, because of its innate ability Berserk. The Berserker will attack every turn, without any prompt. As such, it is not very practical to use the Berserker in vital boss battles; instead, it is more of a novelty to be used in random battles.

Berserkers do have MP, which they can put to use by equipping a Rune Axe or Rune Edge (or even both, if they have the Ninja Dual-Wield ability). These weapons drain the wielder's MP to increase their Attack power.

The stat modifiers for Berserkers are:

  • Strength: +21
  • Agility: -9
  • Stamina: +25
  • Magic: -23
