"Master swordsmen whose keen reflexes allow them to intercept and deflect enemy attacks"

The Samurai is a Job in Final Fantasy V, which you receive after the Earth Crystal has shattered.


The main cast as Samurai.

As a Samurai, each character wears traditional Samurai armor. The only real difference between all of them is that Lenna does not wear a helmet and Galuf's helmet does not have a tassel.


  • Job Command - Zeninage
  • Innate Abilities - Shirahadori
  • Equipment - Knives, Katana

The Samurai is usually associated with the ability to throw money, and Final Fantasy V is no exception. The higher level the thrower is, the more damage Zeninage does, and the more gil it consumes. (Temporary level boosts raises the damage done, but not the gil consumed.) This command is one of the most powerful attacks in Final Fantasy V, but the obvious drawback means that frequent use usually isn't an option. Shirahadori just increases your ability to dodge physical attacks.

The stat modifiers for samurai are:

  • Strength: +19
  • Agility: +2
  • Stamina: +19
  • Magic: -12
