Jecht would often use this in Blitzball to boost audiences, saying that the name "Mark III" was used to hook the crowd and make them come back expecting to see Mark I or Mark II, and was given that designation because it hits two opponents and then scores a goal. However, this was only a hoax, as no "Mark I" or "Mark II" ever existed. He was originally known throughout Zanarkand as the only person able to perform the move. Tidus unsuccessfuly attempted to learn it when he was young, but masters it later on; thus, he is the only other player who can perform the move.
Years later, when aboard the S.S. Winno, Tidus has the option of trying the "Jecht Shot Challenge" with a Blitzball on the Deck. The player only has one shot to do it at first, but may return later in the game to retry it, after obtaining the airship, Fahrenheit. It required the player to push "X" and a direction on the D-pad that corresponded with the location of an indicator onscreen, or just "X" if it appeared in the middle. After practice, the real challenge begins, & the indicators are replaced by quotes from Jecht that demean Tidus. As the quotes were succesfully selected, Tidus performed the different phases of the Jecht Shot in the background. After successfully getting 11 quotes, Tidus learns and perfoms the shot in front of Wakka and the Besaid Aurochs. If the player is unsuccessful, Tidus will fail at hitting the ball, thus not learning the technique.
The technique was quite simple, but obviously difficult to manage. First, the player would kick the ball, hitting either a post or an opposing defender, then it came back, the player would then punch it into another player and it would fly up, the player jumping up after it, and spinning fast to gain momentum and kick it. The stats for the technique in-game are:
There is a similar move called "Jecht Shot 2", with the following stats:
and is acquired by playing Blitzball. However, Jecht only ever invented one shot, the "Sublimely Magnificent Jecht Shot Mark III". As Tidus explained to Yuna, there never existed a Mark I or II, and he further explains that Jecht named it Mark III, so fans would return in hopes of seeing his two non-existing other shots, and the designation referred to knocking two opponents away and then scoring a goal. Mark III is the shot referred to in gameplay as simply "Jecht Shot". It can be assumed that the "Jecht Shot 2" is a variation created by Tidus himself, with an added Sphere Shot, based on the original Jecht Shot.
Braska's Final Aeon has two Overdrives in the final battle, one of which is Ultimate Jecht Shot. It transports the party to another dimension, where the Final Aeon catches a massive meteor and flings it at the party, causing an explosion.
In Dissidia Final Fantasy, Tidus has "Jecht Shot" as an HP attack, where he kicks a blitzball at the enemy, then kicks two more at them if the first connects. Jecht also has "Ultimate Jecht Shot" as an HP attack, where he summons a massive boulder, then leaps into the air and flings it to the ground.
