Haste status in Final Fantasy V.
The Haste symbol as seen in Final Fantasy IV (DS).

Haste (ヘイスト, Heisuto), also known as Fast, refers to the status effect that is beneficial to a character in that it allows a character to take a greater amount of action in a given amount of "game time".

In some games, such as Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy IX, equipping a character with the Running Shoes gives them the Auto Haste ability.

The status increases the speed of the player. Aside from the spell, it is also granted via Running Shoes, which grants Auto Haste.

The Haste status decreases weapon delay, spell casting time, and spell delay; however, it has no effect on ranged attacks.

Finally, haste, in smaller amounts, can be found on items and has the same effect. All haste on items stacks, increasing the bonus, as do all bard songs, though a player can only be effected by one type of haste from a spell.

8-Bit Theater

  • In the Castle of Ordeals, Red Mage made it appear that he had hasted the zombie dragon into red shift, making him fossil fuel in seconds, earning Black Mage respect, before losing it when he revealed it was just an illusion, and that stacked haste spells only boost the time the spell lasts, not the potency.
