Delta Attack as seen in Final Fantasy X

Delta Attack is a powerful recurring attack which requires the presence of all three users. It is commonly cast by the Magus Sisters and Movers.




Final Fantasy IV

The Magus Sisters are able to use Delta Attack, wherein Sandy casts Reflect on Cindy; Cindy attacks a character, and Mindy then casts an offensive spell on Cindy, which will bounce off and hit the player party. Incidentally, their version of the Delta Attack is not really a programmed attack skill at all, but rather a strategy. Howver, this can be avoided by Silencing Sandy.

Final Fantasy V

Phobos, Nereid, and Triton, three of Exdeath's lackeys, will use Delta Attack when one of them is defeated and then successfully revives the defeated enemy before the player has a chance of killing one of the others. It inflicts low to mediocre non-elemental damage to one character, but has a possibility of Petrifying that character. Omega also uses Delta Attack, which does more damage, but can be reflected. The Mover enemy located in the final dungeon can also use Delta Attack. If the player Catches it, Delta Attack will be used upon the enemy's release. Finally, Neo Exdeath uses Delta Attack during the game's final battle, and not only can it be reflected but upon doing so it will instantly destroy one of Neo Exdeath's four sections, regardless of where it hits; this can only be done once per battle, however. Enuo, Omega Mk.II, and Neo Shinryu all can use this attack in the Advance remake.

Final Fantasy VI

The Dream Stooges, Laragorn, Curlax and Moebius, are able to use Delta Attack (previously known as Delta Hit). It has a possibility of Petrifying the character it hits. Omega Weapon and Inferno can also use the attack.

Final Fantasy VII

Called Triangle Attack, used by the Movers, it deals moderate non-elemental damage to one party member.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Enemies called Movers use Delta Attack. It causes critical damage to Zack.

Final Fantasy IX

The enemy Movers in Terra will cast Delta Attack when three are alive at the same time.

Final Fantasy X

Delta Attack is the Overdrive of the Magus Sisters, and is arguably the strongest Aeon Overdrive in the game, as well as having the longest animation sequence. It is a non-elemental attack which breaks the Max Damage Limit by default, however the attack is hindered by the defense of the enemy so inflicting Armor Break beforehand is important. In the International Version, it deals 8 attacks rather than just 1.

When the Magus Sisters and the Dark Magus Sisters are fought, they can use their Delta Attack overdrive on the player.

Final Fantasy X-2

Delta Attack is the Overdrive that the Magus Sisters use, when you meet them in the Farplane.

Final Fantasy XIII

Delta Attack is the name of a Paradigm Shift. One party member takes on the role of Sentinel, another on the role of Commander, and the third is a Ravager.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Delta Attack is one of Exdeath's HP Attacks, which he starts with. When first activated, it repels most projectiles and sends out a burst of energy directly in front of Exdeath a short distance, causing heavy blowback on an opponent. It is capable of going through solid walls to hit opponent's on the other side.

Delta Attack is also the summon ability of the Magus Sisters summon. It automatically decreases an opponent's Bravery to half, and makes their base Bravery half its normal amount for a period of time.

Other appearances
