The Ribbon in Final Fantasy VII.
"Sticks and stones may break your bones, but this will protect you from almost everything else."
Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift description

The Ribbon (リボン Ribon) is a recurring accessory and armor in the Final Fantasy series, although sometimes it appears as an attribute to a weapon. Regularly, the Ribbon prevents the character from being afflicted by any Status effects. It will not, however, protect you from boss attacks in some cases.



Final Fantasy

The Ribbon is an accessory in this game, taking the place of helmets. It has the same defensive value as a mere Leather Hat, but it effectively resists all elemental damage and most Instant Death attacks.

Final Fantasy II

The Ribbon is a helmet in this game. It can first be found when the party defeats the Lamia Queen in Altair; several more can later be collected from this same boss when it appears as a regular enemy in Pandaemonium. Death Riders, which appear in the same dungeon, also drop them. Furthermore, a Ribbon is available in a treasure chest in Pandaemonium; however, it is guarded by Astaroth, whom the party must defeat in order to obtain it.

In the Dawn of Souls version of the game and later, the player can also obtain several Ribbons in the bonus mode, Soul of Rebirth, by defeating the Lamia Matriarch or Orukat enemies in the final dungeon, the Unknown Palace.

Final Fantasy III

The Ribbon is a helmet in this game. Any job class can equip it, and while it only offers mediocre Defense, it prevents many status ailments. There are a total of five Ribbons. One is found in the forbidden land of Eureka, while the other four are found in the World of Darkness (and each guarded by a Xande's Clone).

Final Fantasy IV

Ribbons are headgear that can be equipped by anyone. Two are found in chests; several enemies may also drop them.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

The Ribbon has the same statistics as it did in Final Fantasy IV. The first is found during the Gathering Tale, and the second is located on the True Moon.

Final Fantasy V

Ribbon as seen in Final Fantasy V.

Ribbon is a headgear normally wearable by Dancers and Freelancers. It and other Dancer-specific equipment can be worn with the Equip Ribbon ability. It protects against many status ailments, excluding Confusion and Instant Death.

Final Fantasy VI

The Ribbon is a Relic in this game. It prevents almost all status ailments but Stop and Freeze; and other ailments that cannot be prevented in the first place.

Final Fantasy VII

The Ribbon is an accessory in this game. It prevents all status ailments.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-

Ribbon is an accessory which protects Zack from all statuses except Instant Death. There also exists a Super Ribbon, which protects from all statuses, including Instant Death. The Ribbon effect can also be gained by rolling 7-7-7 on the Digital Mind Wave.

Final Fantasy VIII

The Ribbon ability can be taught to any Guardian Force with the Ribbon item which you can get via Chocobo World mini game. No Guardian Force naturally learns the Ribbon ability.

Final Fantasy IX

For once, the Ribbon doesn't prevent status effects, since the player can learn abilities that prevent status effects. It is an equippable accessory, gained from Mog, that allows Eiko to learn to summon Madeen. In place of the usual status prevention this version of Ribbon cuts all elemental magical damage by 50%.

Tetra Master


Final Fantasy X

In the PAL and International versions, Ribbon can be customized to any armor via 99 Dark Matters.

Final Fantasy X-2

Ribbon is an accessory and also an Auto-ability for the Mascot and each Special Dressphere, as well as the ability gained by passing through all colored gates on the Vile Fiend Garment Grid in the International version. The Shmooth Shailing accessory gives Ribbon while also causing a permanent Slow effect on the user.

Final Fantasy XI

In this MMORPG are several types of Ribbons, also in different colors. Since to the nature of an MMORPG your equipment is limited by your current level to keep the game balanced. The low-level and mid-level Ribbons will give you little Defense against every element, but the defended damage you get is very easy to overlook. The "Flawless Ribbon", which is very hard to get will also give you a decent amount of elemental-defense and the ability "Resist status aliments", meaning that you will get a higher chance of resisting status aliments, not to 100%-defend them. Some ribbons, such as the Noble's Ribbon, also provide a Charisma bonus, making them popular among Bards.

Final Fantasy XII

The license to equip Ribbons is at the end of the accessory section of the license board, and costs 150 LP. Ribbon can be dropped by the Lv. 99 Red Chocobo and be also found in several places, but are very rare and usually require a Diamond Armlet to be equipped to find it. In the International version, ribbons can be found in the Special Charter Shaft of Henne Mines and at the Pharos at Ridoranna.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Ribbon is Ashe's best accessory, and grants immunity to all statuses to the team.

Final Fantasy Tactics

The Ribbon can only be worn by female characters and Cloud Strife, as a reference to Cloud being able to equip them in Final Fantasy VII, and perhaps his infamous cross-dressing scene from the same game and his relationship with Aerith, also from the same game. In War of the Lions, however, this is no longer a special case, as the new Onion Knight Job class can also equip Ribbons. Like it's other appearances as a helmet, it provides a minimal boost to HP and protects the wearer from all status ailments. The three Ribbon accessories - Barette, Cachusa, and Ribbon - are the only type of armor that the Dragonkin class can equip.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Ribbon as it appears in FFTA.

The Ribbon is a helm and can only be worn by Viera (and Ritz, who counts as one). They nullify all status ailments, as opposed to other accessories which block half of a list each.

The Ribbon is a helm. The Gria, the Viera, Adelle, Frimelda Lotice, and Penelo can wear it normally; others can wear it by using the Ribbon-bearer support ability available to Seers, Tricksters, and Tinkers, making the Nu Mou and Seeq the only races that cannot equip one. One series of quests involves tracking down the makers of counterfeit Ribbons, and helping the Galima Pepe company harvest the materials needed for making the real thing. In this game, it is revealed that Ribbons are made (or taken) from a unique class of sweet-smelling Malboro called Cassies.

A cooking term describing the texture of an egg-and-sugar mixture that has been beaten until pale and extremely thick. When the beater or whisk is lifted, the batter falls slowly back onto the surface of the mixture, forming a ribbon-like pattern that, after a few seconds, sinks back into the batter.
