Lightning Can Summon A Moogle Decoy In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

By Spencer . September 30, 2013 . 11:49pm

On top of  HP and MP, Lightning also has Energy Points (EP) which can be used to freeze time when she uses Lightspeed or to cast recovery spells on herself. EP is also consumed if Lightning uses Decoy. This ability summons a moogle that distracts enemies.




While an enemy is busy gnawing on a moogle decoy, Lightning can run around it and hit its weak point. After the moogle takes a certain amount of damage it will disappear.




EP can also be used on the field for Chronostasis. This ability also stops time so Lightning can complete timed quests like a medicine delivery quest.


Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII comes out on February 11 in North America and February 14 in Europe.

  • Ooh Bee

    • Somber

  • Prinnydoom

    Poor mog always get the short end of the stick >___<

  • Lee Bong Bong

    good addition to the game because lightning looks lonely fighting by herself

    • Somber

      Fang will be fighting along with her in Dead Dunes. More characters are confirmed but still don’t know who will be.

  • GHAmer

    Mog got demoted from Sarah’s weapon
    to a poor scapegoat. LOL

    I miss mog as a bad ass dancer that kicks ass from FF6, not some weird cute side character. He had more presence as a mognet in FF9 than 13 series. 13 series he just seems to just sort of exist for the sake of kawai or something lol.

    • Herok♞

      I don’t know Mog was important in FF13-2

      • Somber

        he was. he had his own side story.

      • Happy Gamer

        This is just a personal preference. I didn’t like how mog’s character was executed. It seemed very…i dunno…you know you get that feeling where if he was absent, you wouldn’t feel anything. I guess the right word would be he lacked charm.

    • Mihel

      13 series he just seems to just sort of exist for the sake of kawai or something lol

      In pretty much all FFs moogles exists for the sake of being cute…

      • Happy Gamer

        lol got me there. I think it is more my very personal taste. Despite him being to cute in ff 6 for example, I liked that mog better than 13 series.

  • Somber

    Light, why you so mean to my mog! :(

  • DriftSlave

    Meter management is going to be key in this game, alot of stuff uses EP.

  • Never using this. I do NOT want to see Mog get hurt.

    • Happy Gamer

      Man..I thought it’d be cool if mog was sort of your MAG (from PSO) where it attacks, heals now and then, and can customize it etc would be nice. But I didn’t expect THIS! lol. throw for distraction. Poor guy. I wonder if there will be more “uses” for mog :)
