The Mime Class
See also: Mime.

The Mime is a job class from Final Fantasy Tactics. The reward for training a unit in most job classes, the Mime is unique in that it learns no abilities. Instead, it immediately mimics any action any of the player units do. If a unit uses a Potion, the Mime will also on the very next turn. If a unit attacks one square in front of it, the Mime will do likewise. It is because of this that the Mime needs a lot of careful planning to be effective. As the trade-off to this, they essentially get as many turns as there are allied human units in the battle. They are also competent physical warriors, due to their stats and innate support abilities. Mimes can be used to set up traps, or attack enemies when the person using the skill is not in range. He may attack 2 spaces up, and one to the left, and the Mime will do the exact same, hitting the enemy if it happens to be there. They are also useful with Dancers and Bards, as 1 Mime and one Dancer/Bard will equal double the dancing/singing without any waiting. More Mimes will equate in tripling or further, depending on how many are used.

A mime cannot mimics another ally mime's action nor the unique skills of exlusive classes such as Sword Saint. Only the command skills which can be learned from regular job can be mimicked. Also there is a very small chance the mime will fail to mimic.

One note of interest is the Mime's appearance. Females have a Fox mask, referencing Japanese Mythology, in which many Foxes, known as Kitsunes, can transform to look like other beings, and Males have a hat which resembles that of a Parrot (Beak facing back), likely referencing a parrot's ability to mimic human speech.


A warrior who has abandoned his or her own identity, instead mimicking the actions of allies in battle.
