Mug, also known as Capture or Plunder, is an ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is a combination of Fight and Steal, allowing the user to attack and attempt to steal an item in the same turn. Like its counterpart Steal, it is usually associated with the Thief class.
Edge now has Smash and Grab, which is identical to Mug.
Mug is the Level 6 ability of the Thief Job class.
Locke Cole can use Mug if he is equipped with a Thief Glove. Due to a bug in the game, however, the Thief Glove replaces any replacement effect on Locke's weapon, such as random instant death or Defense-ignoring, with a Steal attempt; however, weapons that randomly cast spells would still perform such after the steal attempt was made.
The Thief Knife also causes its user to attempt to Steal when attacking. It can be equipped by Locke and Shadow. Some enemies can use Mug on the party as well, and if they or the party escapes, the party loses the item or gil stolen. If the enemy is defeated and the battle is won, the party will gain the Gil or Item back afterwards.
Mug is the Level 2 ability on the Steal Materia. Esentially, it is the same as the Steal command with an added Attack. It replaces the Steal command. It uses the same math as Steal does to steal from enemies, including the Sneak Gloves.
The Bandit can use the Mug command, stealing items from the inventory of, and causing damage to, one target. Shortly afterward, the unit will use its Escape command, the victim losing their item forever. There is a three-quarter chance they'll use Mug, otherwise they'll use Hold-up to steal Gil instead.
Mug is an ability available by equipping the Mug Materia.
Mug is a non-command ability, and it can be used when either the Guardian Forces Diablos or Bahamut are junctioned. When equipped, the Attack command is changed to Mug. This is the only ability in the game which allows you to steal items from your opponent: there is no base "Steal" ability. The formula for Mug to steal is as follows.
MugDifficulty is often 128 or higher. Mugging an enemy successfully will result in the enemy not dropping items after battle.
Mug is a passive ability that can only be used by Zidane Tribal. This time, if Zidane were to use his Steal command, minor damage would be done if he equipped the Mug ability.
The Garment Grid Treasure Hunt grants the ability to Mug.
Mug is a level 20 Dirty Tricks ability for the Thief class, and caps at level 20. It allows the user to deal damage while stealing elementite from the target, but can only be used once per battle and up to 3 times a day.
Mug is an ability initially used by Goblin but usable by any character; it allows a racer to steal a Magic Stone from the racer in the first position.
