    Example : When Archer level reaches 3, the "Thief" job will become
 available (but only for the unit that reached level 3 on Archer).
 When Elemental Mage level reaches 5 AND Dragon Knight level reaches 5,
 "Dancer" job will become available.
    For the Samurai, Ninja, Mathematician and Imitator, I have listed 
 the prerrequisite jobs with their levels. 


    I will usually put four things in each translation:

 Japanese : The original Japanese name in Kana or Kanji (Japanese alphabets).
 Romanji : A phonetic translation of this name in Romanji (Roman alphabet).
 Translation : A literal translation, to the best of my ability.
 Effect : A translation of its effect.

    In many cases I will not be able to write down some or all of the
 Kanji in the ability's name. In these I will put a single question mark
 for each untranslated Kanji so you can match the length of the name
 and the relative position of each of the other Kanji.

    Every time I put (DS) on an ability's effect, it means that some of
 the words on that ability's description (by pushing select) hinted
 to that effect.

    Translations and effects listed with three question marks are very
 tentative and unlikely, or mean that I don't have a clue as to what
 they may be. A single question mark means I'm quite sure of that effect.

 "ChocoboEsna").

Mari Hagiwara's note : Girugame is a turtle-shaped FF5 monster. It 
  is a multiple pun made up from:

  a) "Gil" is the money unit in FF series.
  b) "game" means turtle. Rough translation: Money Turtle.
  c) And there is a species of turtle in Japan called Zenigame, named 
     for its shape resembling a coin. "Zeni" is the Japanese money unit, 
     so the meaning of Gilgame is equivalent to that of Zenigame.
  d) The Gilgame has the double-meaning of Gilgamesh and Zenigame - it 
     has the money value indicated by Zenigame, and its EXTREME 
     strength indicated by Gilgamesh.
  e) It appears in the Gil Dungeon, in which the party finds money at 
     each step forward, and the amount of money found doubles at each step.

    Note about this job: The FuusuiWaza ability that can be used 
 (provided you have learnt it) depends on which type of terrain YOU 
 (not the enemy) are, and it's effect will always be damage and a 
 random chance of causing a status ailment. I will list the terrain 
 in which it can be used and the ailment it causes. Sometimes the 
 damage will be elemental: in these cases I will put that element 
 between parenthesis. If you have not learnt the FuusuiWaza  
 corresponding to the block you are in, you won't be able to use 
 this command.

    Notes about this job : The most important ability of this job is
 "invitation". It allows the talker to invitate monsters into your
 party permanently (or at least until you decide to get rid of them).
 The affected monster will act like a "Guest" in that encounter and
 it will be just like any other character after that. The monsters even
 reproduce themselves over time, and they can generate monsters of
 higher classes (for example a Chocobo might generate a Black Chocobo).
    By the way, in case you didn't know, the Chocobos can be mounted.
 Just move to their square with any human character.

 the Deep Dungeon. You are supposed to learn it if your summoner
 gets hit by it and lives (which is quite difficult to accomplish
 since it deals about 400-600 damage). I haven't been able to 
 confirm this for that reason.

    This job becomes available when "Knight" level reaches 4, "Monk" 
 level reaches 5 and "Dragon Knight" level reaches 2.
    Notes about this job : The samurai's special command is "Release".
 It allows him/her to draw out the spirit living inside a katana (the
 samurai's sword)and use their powers. The name of each action ability 
 matches the name of one katana: to use it, you must have one spare 
 (not equipped) katana of that type. The inherent cost to this ability
 is that there is a small chance of breaking the katana each time it 
 is used: the word BUREIKU (T _) will appear over the samurai 
 in that case.

StarWolf's Note:
  SHIRAHADORI is originally a samurai technique of catching 
  the opponent's sword by hand, when attacked. 

Mark Rosa's note:
  Ame no Murakumo shows up in FFV also, and is (supposedly) a pun 
  on "Kumo no Murasame", the legendary sword that's in all the other 
  games.  Kumo no Murasame and Ame no Murakumo aren't anagrams in 
  Japanese, though... the Murasame is with 'ame' meaning 'rain'.

    Notes about this job : The dancer's special command is "Dance".
 When she starts a dance, its effect will activate at regular intervals
 determined by that dance's speed. The dancer doesn't lose her next active
 turns, but if she chooses to perform any action the dance will stop 
 its activations (but any decreased attribute like speed, etc will remain
 decreased for the rest of the battle). She can move, however, just as 
 if she were a mage charging up a spell. The dances' effects affect all
 enemies.

    This job becomes available when "White Mage" and "Black Mage"
 levels reach 5, and "Yin/Yang Mage" and "Time Mage" levels reach 4.

    Notes about this job: The Mathematician's command allows him/her 
 to cast a spell on all characters (both allies and enemies) that 
 have something in common: a specific characteristic of them is a 
 multiple of a given number. 
    For example, he/she may cast "Level 4 Flare", i.e. cast flare
 on all characters whose levels are multiples of four : to do this, 
 he/she must have the Mathematician's abilities "Level" and "4", 
 and have learnt the spell "Flare". Then he/she must use the 
 Mathematician's command ("Arithmetics") and select these words 
 in that order. Note that the spell is cast instantly and 
 with no MP consumption.
    The characteristics are "Charge Time", "Level", "Experience" 
 and "Height", and the numbers are five, four, three and prime 
 numbers (meaning all prime numbers are affected). He/she can 
 choose the spell to be cast from all White, Black, Yin/Yang and 
 Time spells he/she has learnt. Note that there is no need to 
 "equip" any additional ability to use them, making this job's 
 command a very powerful and versatile one.

 reach 8, and "Elemental User", "Dragon Knight", "Talker" and "Summoner"
 levels reach 5.
    Notes about this job : The Imitator can't equip any weapon, armor
 helmet, accesory nor ability of any type except his/her own one:
 imitate. Yet this can't be used in battle: only Fight will appear in
 his/her action menu. The imitator's ability activates itself whenever
 a party member performs an attack, a magic, or some special abilities;
 then the imitator will copy that person's action, even using the same 
 weapon than him/her if it was an attack. The target for that action
 is the one that has the same relative position to the imitator as the
 original target to the original person, even having into account the
 orientation of the imitator. This action does not affect the imitator's
 own active turn, and he/she can imitate as many times in a turn as
 actions are done.

    Ramza (,.), Dirita (o^-") and Argas (>%1) have 
 this job.

    Note about this job: Note that the first four commands are the 
 same as that of a regular Apprentice Warrior. The next are not all
 available from the begining, and Ramza learns some of them as he 
 starts a new chapter. 

    The last one, Arutema, I got from one of the blonde assassins 
 that attack you on the roofs of a palace. She cast it on Ramza 
 and I was prompted if I wanted to learn it. I don't know if 
 there's a good side about not learning it, but of course
 I answered yes :) It is very similar to FF3US's Ultima, but much
 less powerful; around 120 HP damage (same area as regular spells). 
 It is the only ability in that command that has both MP usage and 
 charge time (10 MP, 20 Speed).

    Tatsushi Nakao's note:

    Arutema's origin is Final Fantasy II (Japanese version, not released
 in US), where Arutema was rather weak... which damage is comparable.  
 There are alot of references to FFII (such as Pandemonium, Semite's 
 Fall, etc..), so I believe this is a valid connection.

    Lafa (,O-) has this job.

    Note about this job: All it's abilities are random magic strikes (much
 like FF7's Mahou Midareuchi's materia or FF3US's X-Fight). They have
 the same area as a regular spell, but they will hit on random locations
 within that area a random number of times (usually matching the number
 of blocks composing that area, note that it may be below 5 if there
 are obstacles within that area).
