In general Tabs appear as blinking blue dots somewhere in the game which can be collected by just touching them with A Button, although Spekkio also gives away varying amounts of tabs depending on his form. Tabs increase that particular stat for a character. Keep in mind that speed is never increased by level so you'll need to use speed tabs to max out your characters speed, and also be aware that everyone's power stat except for Lucca's and Marle's maxes out eventually, although it isn't as important for them because of their weapon types. Lucca's and Magus's magic stats will also max out without external assistance.

Magic Tabs[edit]

(A Speed Tab can be found on the adjacent wall where you first spotted the Tab winkle.) After first going to Zeal Palace and talking to the Nu there to learn his secret scratch point, you'll be able to scratch the Nu in the room where they make magic tabs to receive a magic tab.
