In the GBA and subsequent releases of Final Fantasy 4, two optional dungeons were added. In there, many equipment parts can be found. Each equipment is specific for one single character. Their attack and defense power are very high, but their most important characteristics are their unique special effects.

Note that Tellah and Fusoya have no special Advance equipment.

  • Reward = equipment won from a boss;
  • Sets = equipping the weapon sets a status on the wielder;
  • Inflicts = attacking with the weapon also inflicts a status on the enemy;
  • Casts = use the weapon/armor from the Item menu to cast a spell;
  • Resists = the armor reduces damage from some elements;
  • Prevents = the armor makes the wearer immune to some status;
  • Upgrade = the armor changes one command ability;
