    Due to the very large amount of requests for Battle Commands, I have
decided to add them to this.  I don't have Steiner and Garnet with my
party right now, so I will add what I remember for them right now, and will
add them fully when I get them again.

                         Battle Commands


ジタン-Jitan (Zidane)

たたかう-Tatakau (Fight)  Attack an enemy or companion with equipped weapon.
ぬすむ-Nusumu (Steal) Attempt to take an item from an enemy.
秘技-Higi (Secret Technique) Use Zidane's Action Abilities.
アイテム-Aitemu (Item) Use an item.

    When you choose to ぬすむ-Nusumu (Steal) in a battle, there are three
possible outcomes, 1-Steal an item, 2-Can't steal (failed attempt), and
3-Nothing to Steal! Here is an example of each so you can know what is going
on when you choose steal in a battle.  For this example, the enemy is a
レディーバグ-Rediibagu (Ladybug), a flying blue insect around クエナ-Kuena
(Quena)'s marsh.


目薬をぬすんだ!-Megusuri wo nusunda! (Eyedrop was stolen!) The item you
                 have stolen will always be the very first thing.  Just take
                 off the をぬすんだ! part and that is the item you stole.
ハイポーションをぬすんだ!-Haipooshon wo nusunda! (High Potion was stolen!)
                           As you can see from both of these examples, the
                           'was stolen!' phrase is always the same when you
                           successfully steal.
ぬすめなかった!-Nusumenakatta! (Couldn't Steal!) This means you failed at
                 stealing an item on that attempt, but the enemy IS still
                 carrying an item.  Try again.
テントをぬすんだ!-Tento wo nusunda! (Tent was stolen!)
フェニックスの羽をぬすんだ!-Fenikusu no Hane wo nusunda! (Phoenix Feather     
                               was stolen!)
何も持っていない!-Nanimoterutteinai! (Has nothing!) The enemy has nothing
                   more to steal.

Zidane's Trances-when Zid's Trance Meter fills up, his 秘技-Higi (Secret
Technique) command changes to 専技-Sengi (Specialty Technique).  For each
command that you could use in the Higi box, you can use one of his specialty
techniques.  Here are the ones I have found at this time so far:

フリーエナジー-Furiienajii (Free Energy-10 MP)
タイダルフレイム-Taidarufureimu (Tidal Flame-12 MP)
スクープアウト-Sukuupuauto (Scope Out-14 MP) A big red bolt of energy
               slams into an enemy.
シフトブレイク-Shifutobureiku (Shift Break-16 MP)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

ビビ-Vivi

たたかう-Tatakau (Fight)
黒魔法-Kuromahou (Black Magic) Cast a Black Magic spell.
ためる-Tameru (Store) Charge up to do more damage with his next spell.

スタイナー-Sutainaa (Steiner)

たたかう-Tatakau (Fight)
剣技-Kengi (Sword Technique) Use Steiner's Action Abilities.
魔法剣-Mahouken (Magic Sword) Vivi must be in the party to use this.
       Vivi will cast a spell on Steiner's sword, giving him an elemental
       attack.  This does NOT take up Vivi's turn.
アイテム-Aitemu (Item)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

ガールネト-Gaaruneto (Garnet)

たたかう-Tatakau (Fight)
召喚-Shoukan (Summon) Summon a monster for an attack.
白魔法-Shiromahou (White Magic) Cast a White Magic Spell.
アイテム-Aitemu (Item)

専---------------------------------------------------------------------------

フライヤ-Furaiya (Freiya)

たたかう-Tatakau (Fight)
ジャンプ-Janpu (Jump) Jump off the screen and land on them for high in the
         air to do more damage than a regular attack.

クイナ-Kuina (Quina)

たたかう-Tatakau
たべる-Taberu (Eat) Eat a weakened monster to learn a Blue Magic spell.
青魔法-Aomahou (Blue Magic) Use Quina's Blue Magic he has learned from eating
       an enemy.
