NOTE: This FAQ is in its final version. The e-mail address formerly here is
defunct as of late September 2002, and no requests to add this to other sites
will be granted. All I know about overdrives is in this FAQ. I am not 'hiding'
anything from you. No more information will ever be added.

(1) Overdrive History/Info
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

In Final Fantasy X, each character contains a special ability, different from
any others you will find. It is called an "Overdrive".

The following was written by Mystile, copied with permission by myself:

"Overdrives are a conglomeration of unique, powerful techniques from previous
Final Fantasy games. Each character has his or her own special Overdrive(s)
that cannot be copied or taught to other characters. They are what makes a
character truly unique in gameplay. These techniques originate from Final
Fantasy 3/6j. In FF6, they were a small, almost invisible feature. Called
Desperation Attacks, a character would randomly perform his or her unique
attack when his or her health was in critical. These attacks were amplified in
Final Fantasy 7, when they were changed to Limit Breaks. Here, a character had
a special meter, and when Limit meters were full, you could opt to use the
character's Limit Break. Final Fantasy 8 reverted back to the random form seen
in FF6, with a huge difference. Whereas in FF6 Desperation attacks would appear
1 out of 20 times with no control, FF8 Limit Breaks would appear randomly as a
selectable command. Players could skip a character's turn in hopes that the
next time his or her turn came up, the Limit Break command could be accessed.
Things took a strange turn in Final Fantasy 9. The Limit meters returned, now
called Trance meters, but you were no longer allowed to store the technique, as
you could in FF7, or have a chance of using it consecutively, as in FF6 or FF8.
When the Trance meter was full, the character would enter Trance mode. In this
mode, all attacks did twice as much damage, and characters opened up new,
powerful commands. Trance mode decreased the Trance meter every turn used, and
when the meter was empty, the character would revert to normal. If you ended a
battle in Trance, tough luck! The meter would empty itself, and you had to
continue building it up." I strongly urge you to check out Mystile's
FAQ/Walkthrough, currently in the making.

An Overdrive is an attack unique to a single character, that not even through
the Sphere Grid can anyone else learn. It is sort of like a "charged" mode --
the character will unleash an attack more powerful than what is normal.
However, the Overdrive, unlike Trance, will only last for one move.

Hopefully this guide will teach you the basics of Overdrive and how to utilize
each one to the maximum efficiency.

But first of all, and MOST IMPORTANTLY -- this guide contains SPOILERS (in
small doses). So if you don't want your game ruined (which there probably
aren't enough here to do that, I don't give away anything BIG) -- steer away.
But notice, mostly all I mention is place names, nothing that will make you
hate life for finding out.

(2) Overdrive Modes
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The Overdrive system in Final Fantasy X is much more expansive than in any
previous version of the series. This includes various ways of reaching
Overdrive -- whether it be taking a hit or dealing a hit, every character can
find one perfect for their -- and your -- fighting style.

(3) Character Overdrives
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Each character has an Overdrive ability that is unique to them, and CAN NOT be
learned by anyone else, even through the Sphere Grid (so full character
abilities are not possible, technically). Listed below in each subsection is
each character's Overdrive abilities, how to gain new ones, et cetera, et
cetera, et cetera.

 ___________
|3.1 - Tidus|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Ability: Swordplay
Activation: A cursor will move left -> right on the bar on the screen and then
reverses direction once it reaches the far end of it. The goal is to press (X)
at the correct time to try and make the cursor stop in the small white area in
the middle of the bar. If you miss the cursor will restart at the beginning of
the bar. The attack will be more powerful depending on the time remaining on
the timer at the top-right. This becomes harder the more powerful Overdrive you
use.

[01] - Spiral Cut
     - Damages a single enemy with a slew of acrobatical endeavours followed
with a deadly swing of the sword.
     - Is initially availible (you start the game with this)
[02] - Slice & Dice
     - Attacks all enemies with a series of 6 attacks with the sword.
     - Gain by successfully activating Overdrives 10 times (total)
[03] - Energy Rain
     - Attacks all enemies, only once
     - Gain by successfully activating Overdrives 30 times (total)
[04] - Blitz Ace
     - 8 slashes, followed by a Jecht Shot on one enemy
     - Gain by successfully activating Overdrives 80 times (total)

 __________
|3.2 - Yuna|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Ability: Grand Summon
Activation: Summons any Aeon with a full Overdrive gauge. After the Overdrive
attack an Aeon will return to its previous Overdrive gauge fulledness.
Therefore, it is possible to unleash two Overdrive attacks in a row!

 ___________
|3.3 - Wakka|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Ability: Slots
Activation: A slot machine reel will appear on the screen. Given a long amount
of time, Wakka must press the (X) button to stop each reel one at a time. The
first reel will be the type of attack. If all three reels are matched, the
attack will be extra powerful.

Also NOTE: The reels control more than just the attack:

- If you match up 2 of any type, you attack a random enemy with that type.
- If you match up all 3 of any type, you attack all enemies with that type.
- If you don't match up anything, you perform a charged attack on an enemy.

Again, note: In the international version, the reels do more damage based on
the timer in the right-hand corner.

[01] - Element Reels
     - Adds elemental (fire, water, thunder, blizzard) effects to attack
     - Is initially availible (you start the game with it)
[02] - Attack Reels
     - Adds extra hits to attack (the number that lines up is the amount of
attacks)
     - Win as prize in Blitzball tournaments
[03] - Status Reels
     - Adds status effects to attack (poison, etc.)
     - Win as prize in Blitzball leagues (must have appeared in 250 battles)
[04] - Aurochs Reels
     - Combination of elemental attacks and status inflictions. The Aurochs
symbol represents a massive non-elemental, non-status attack. The number of
Aurochs logos represents the number of the original Besaid Aurochs on your
blitz team (ie, if you still have Tidus and Keepa, two logos would be
availible.)
     - Win as prize in Blitzball tournaments (must have appeared in 450
battles)

One more note: Wakka does NOT have to be on your blitz team in order to obtain
his Overdrives.

 __________
|3.4 - Lulu|
 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Ability: Fury
Activation: After you choose which spell you would like to cast, just rotate
the right analog stick as much as you can. For each complete turn registered
Lulu will cast the spell.

Note that...
 - Does not consume MP
 - Can be activated even if under Silence
 - Low power (about 40% of the normal power)
 - Damage cannot be reduced
 - Attack cannot be reflected
 - The first spins are easy, but after 4 they become gradually harder
 - The higher Lulu's magic stat, the easier revolutions register

"Fury" Spells, that is, spells that can be used for Lulu's Overdrive.
NOTE: The spells are not in a particular order.

[01] - Fire
[02] - Thunder
[03] - Water
[04] - Blizzard
[05] - Fira
[06] - Thundara

[18] - Ultima

Gagazet, you can learn them from Yenke Ronso and Biran Ronso, as listed below.

 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Ability: Bushido

Activation: Select 2 items from your inventory to mix together and create a new
item. The results are logical: for example, mixing a Potion with another Potion
will create an Ultra Potion. For this Overdrive I will not list the (seemingly)
infinite possibilities, but kneel down to CB! for creating one (350+ kb!). You
can find it at GameFAQs.com.

Here are some useful mixes, though:

Potion + Soul Spring = Megalixir
2 Grenades = Flash Flood
2 Common Spheres (Power, Mana, Speed, Ability) = Frag Grenade
2 Elemental Gems of the same kind = powerful elemental attack
2 Doorway to Tomorrow = Trio of 9999

(4) Aeon Overdrives
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Since in Final Fantasy X, Aeons (summoned beasts) act as normal party members,
each comes with his or her own special Overdrive unlike anyone else's. I list
these and their effects here, for your information and records.

Please NOTE: Aeon Overdrives DO NOT have to be activated in some sort of
special way as the character Overdrives do. All that is required is selecting
the special attack off a list. Also, Aeons do not have a unique Overdrive
ability the way characters do. All Overdrives are listed on the menu by
pressing Left, and not having to go into a sub-menu.

* denotes that you must power up the weapons with either the corresponding
crest or sigil.

(5) Overdrive Auto-Abilities
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
In my latest daring endeavour into this FAQ, I have added the Overdrive
Auto-Abilities section. This section relates to any auto-abilities related to
Overdrives.

Keep in mind that all of these abilities are customized on weapons.

[01] - Double Overdrive
     - Req'd: Underdog's Secret x30
     - Desc: Overdrive gauge charges at 2x the regular rate.
[02] - Triple Overdrive
     - Req'd: Winning Formula x30
     - Desc: Overdrive gauge charges at 3x the regular rate.
[03] - SOS Overdrive
     - Req'd: Gambler's Spirit x20
     - Desc: Overdrive gauge charges 2x when HP is critically low.
[04] - Overdrive -> AP
     - Req'd: Door to Tomorrow x10
     - Desc: Earn extra AP rather than charge Overdrive gauge.
     - This ability is a large part of the AP trick. Check out ChronoRye's AP
Trick FAQ at gamefaqs.com.
     - NOTE: This auto-ability was weakened somewhat in FFX International. When
the OD gauge is charged to AP, the amount is reduced to 90% of the previous
increment in the same battle. For example, in one battle, you will get 100%
effeciency, then 90%, 81%, 72%, etc.
