Abilities are passive powers that can boost stats, provide support and protection, or improve one's Spirits. They are unlocked by spending a Spirit's Link Points on their Ability Link boards. Once learned, they are automatically installed. However, abilities are Spirit-specific, meaning that if you change your party, your abilities will change as well.

Many abilities can be installed multiple times. For instance, HP Boost can be installed up to five times. Rather than being redundant, this creates a cumulative effect.
