From Final Fantasy Wiki

"Stealthy fighters who excel at surprising enemies and can wield two weapons at once"

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


The main cast as Ninjas.

The team dresses like the basic ninja would. Bartz, Galuf and Faris dress as more formal ninjas, with armor, while Lenna and Krile wear more traditional kunoichi garb.


  • Job Command - Throw
  • Innate Abilities - Dual-Wield, First Strike
  • Equipment - Short Swords, Knives

Throw functions like it always has; choose an item and the ninja will throw it at the target. Rarer items usually equal more damage. First Strike will mean that as long as you have a ninja in your party, you can be expected to attack first a lot of the time. Dual-Wield is the classic ninja ability, letting the ninja hold a weapon in both its hands, meaning they attack twice.

The stat modifiers of Ninjas are:

  • Strength: +15
  • Agility: +14
  • Stamina: +3
  • Magic: -10
