Final Fantasy XIII is too modern for “levels”. It has a Final Fantasy X style character growth system where players spend Crystarium points to purchase abilities and stat boosts earned from encounters. As seen above, Lighting is playing the role of a blaster and can purchase HP +15 or the magic spell thunder. Snow, being an attacker, has different options like the ruin spell and HP +70.
Hope’s summon, Alexander, crushes enemies with its giant fist. When it switches into Gestalt mode, Alexander transforms into a laser shooting fortress.
In Final Fantasy XIII, you aren’t impervious to enemy ambushes while riding a chocobo. Your chocobo looses a bit of life whenever you bump into an enemy. In addition to speeding up travel Chocobos can find hidden treasures.
