Beneath each character's HP and MP is an overdrive guage. When it's fully charged, the character in question cna perform a special attack called an "Overdrive". When this becomes available, press <- (LEFT) to access your overdrive(s). Guages charge whenever a character takes damage. This setting can be changed as you travel through the game.



Tidus' Overdrive attack is similar to Squalls' Renzokuken. After taking, or inflicting enough damage Tidus will reach his overdrive mode. In all his overdrives there is a moving bar that you have to stop in the middle, the quicker you can stop it, the stronger the attack will be. The following is a list of Tidus' Overdrives.

Overdrive Target Attempts Required To Learn
Spiral Cut One enemy Default
Slice and Dice Random Perform 10 successful Overdrives
Energy Rain All enemies Perform 30 successful Overdrives
Blitz Ace All Enemies Perform 80 successful Overdrive


Yuna's Overdrive is Grand Summon. Any Aeon so summoned will appear with it's overdrive gauge at maximum. After the Aeon uses it's Overdrive attack the Overdrive gauge returns to it previous position thus the previous gauge wasn't wasted


Auron's Overdrives require the swift input of button combinations much like Zell's. The quicker you input the combination the stronger the attack will be. Auron gains a new Overdrive after acquiring recorded spheres throughout Spira.

Wakka starts off with Element Reels and acquires his other Overdrives by winning blitzball games in both leagues and tournaments. Whenever you use Element Reels slots will start spinning and it is up to you to stop them correctly. If you match three of the same elements (red is fire, white is blizzard, blue is water, yellow is lightning) Wakka will attack all enemies with that element for massive damage. If you match two status elements then Wakka will only attack one randomly selected enemy, with medium damage. The same goes for his three other overdrives.
