Final Fantasy V

Catch is an ability of the Beastmaster Job. It enables the player to capture a weakened monster, and then release it later for the monster to do certain abilities. The player must have weakened the monster by about 3/4 or more of its max HP in order to successfully use the ability. If the character is equipped with a Kornago's Gourd, the player will then only need to reduce the monster's HP to 1/2.

The Catch Bug exists in all versions of the game with the enemies Gel Fish and Moss Fungus.

Final Fantasy X

Capture is an Auto-ability that can be bought on weapons from the Monster Arena, which allows the player to capture a monster if they deal the killing blow.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Capture is an ability of the Hunter Job. It enables the character to capture a weakened monster, and send it to the Monster Bank in Cyril.

Catch is also a Reaction ability for the Red Mage and the Juggler. When using this ability, anything thrown at the user will be kept. It is learned using the Chain Plate.

(Redirected to Acts in Perestroika article)

From Grand Theft Wiki

Perestroika, a cabaret club in Grand Theft Auto IV, features a total of four different acts, two of which will be shown each time the player watches the club's show. The acts that show up in each show are fixed in sequence and order. All in all, a total of six different shows can be played before they are looped. The quality of the acts vary between each of the performers, and at least one act is depicted to be plagued by problems.

The performers do not appear outside the realms of the shows, and are only seen within Perestroika.

List of acts

Image Name Description
The Incredible Kleinman A magician who entertains the audience by cheating death, with his "lovely assistant" Laurel, who he implies is his ex-lover.

He is seen in many acts but fails each stunt as he gets either seriously injured or apparently killed like getting stabbed inside the black box and set on fire by Laurel, shot through the head by a Pistol, his left hand nearly severed with a guillotine, and cut in half by a table saw. He even "accidentally" stabbed his assistant by throwing a knife into her shoulder. He claims he was distracted by the thought of "that filthy stagehand [his assistant was] trolloping with." When his first act shown, a levitation stunt, went wrong, he claims to have accidentally turned her quadrapeligic. (The announcer tries to calm the audience, saying he's "sure she's only parapeligic.")

His "cheating death" acts did not go very well as the audience becomes frightened. It is unknown how he keeps performing acts even after fatal accidents, or how his assistant does after she was paralyzed. Although it is possible that the occuring injuries are actually part of their act, or that they've just been miraculously mended.

Bluesy St. John Southern blues singer who sings about being abused as a child, pursuing a sex change, losing her baby child to aliens, and a variety of other personal problems. Though it is not much of an entertainment, many audience members finds this female singer amusing and quite attractive. During her shows, she implies that she is drunk/drugged while on stage, and it should be noted that most of her songs are obviously fictitious (even in the GTA universe).
"Catch" An ordinary juggler dressed in a jester costume against a medieval backdrop with varying, yet ordinary juggling acts, like juggling knives and solid concrete blocks (in blue). In one act he manages to juggle three chainsaws without injuring himself. Catch is always applauded by the audience as he closes his act.
Dusty Cowpoke A performance artist who jumps and rolls around mimicking the movements of a cowboy in a shootout, and uses his hands like a revolver. The theme of this show takes place in a western-style desert with a classical country music. The audience disliked his performance, most likely because his entertainment is much less appealing, and is the only act the audience will boo at. He is only seen in the first act in the game, but also appears during the introductory cutscene for "Final Destination", and during the introductory sequence of "First Date" explaining friendships and girlfriends in GTA IV, when he wears a white 10-gallon hat (the only time he dons a headgear).

The music Dusty is preforming to is similar to the tune played in Redwood Cigarettes commercial heard on the radio stations in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Catch, originally called Jawaswag, was the name of Rogue Squadron pilot (and later commanding officer) Gavin Darklighter's personal R2-series astromech droid.

Darklighter became attached to the gold and white droid when he was continually greeted with a brief summary of Tatooine and Coruscant's weather despite regular refits, upgrades and memory wipes.

Gavin changed the droid's name to Toughcatch shortly after the Thrawn campaign when he fended off a group of Jawas who were attempting to steal him, injuring one of them in the process. Eventually in 25 ABY the name was shortened to simply Catch where the droid served at the Battle of Dantooine and the Battle of Ithor in the earliest stages of the Yuuzhan Vong War.

This article is a stub about a droid. You can help Wookieepedia by expanding it.
