"Tricksters spin a web of deception, twisting the flow of battle to their advantage."

The Trickster is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, usable by the Bangaa only. They fight using cards as weapons, allowing them to attack from a long range, and their skills primarily revolve around inflicting statuses. Unusual for Bangaas, the Trickster job features an excellent speed and magic growth, but with the downfall of very low MP. A very popular secondary A-Ability is the Gladiator's Sparring moveset, which grants elemental damage and the Bangaa's Ultima attack. Since Ultima's damage is based on the magic stat, Tricksters can do higher damage than most of the Bangaa's other classes, and with a better range and Half MP as support, Trickster can deal massive damage at long range every two turns. One should keep in mind that this class has a disadvantage against units that are immune to debuffs (via Cashucha, Barrette ,Ribbon or Impervious Passive-ability). The Trickster is also the only job that is able to wield cards.

Pygmalion is a clan of Tricksters that not only bestows this unique job class after the player defeats them but also appears in auctions and a Bonga Bugle quest, time and again proving a nuisance.

  • The stars on the sides of the Bangaa's pants seem to come from Kingdom Hearts II's Nobody emblem. The class's clothes also have a striking resemblance with one of the Nobodies, the Gambler, not to mention that they both wield cards as weapons.
  • The Trickster's abilities seem to make use of the nocebo effect, which is the lesser-known opposite to the placebo effect.
  • Pygmalion means a concept of psychology describing the behavior of individuals as people expect them to behave.
