"Apothecaries who can mix powerful brews, and gain twice the benefit when drinking potions and ethers"

The Chemist is a job in Final Fantasy V, which is given to you after the Earth Crystal shatters.


The main cast as Chemists.

It's not very clear what you're wearing as a chemist, other than yellow robes, yellow hats with a green cross on them, and green scarves.


  • Job Command - Drink
  • Innate Abilities - Pharmacology
  • Equipment - Knives, Staffs

Drink lets the Chemist drink one of the following potions:

  • Giant Drink
  • Hard Body
  • Hero Drink
  • Power Drink
  • Speed Drink

This will give it a stat boost of some kind. However, the Chemist isn't meant for fighting, so this is an ability meant for other classes such as the Knight or Gladiator. Pharmacology, on the other hand, is more useful, as it doubles the effect of all potions in the game provided the Chemist is using them.

The stat modifiers of Chemists are:

  • Strength: +2
  • Agility: +3
  • Stamina: +6
  • Magic: -4
