        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.

        The monster trainer ability allows friendly monsters on an adjacent

     wouldn't have otherwise (for example, the Chocobo will be able to perform
     "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.

        Note about this job: The Dragon Knight's special ability is "Jump". 
     It allows him/her to take off into the air (rendering him/her 
     invulnerable  for as long he/she is there), then landing weapon-first 
     into the designated spot, inflicting double the damage of a regular 
     attack IF he/she is equipped with a spear (otherwise it does normal 
     damage). After this he/she immediatly returns to his/her original 
     position.

        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.

        Notes about this job : It seems that the most powerful summon
     spell, Zodiac, can be learnt from the boss at the tenth floor of
     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.

        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.

      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'.

     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

        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.

        This job becomes available when "Apprentice" and "Item User" levels 
     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.
