Limit breaks are no stranger to the FF
series, for they have been used time and time again, made for
us RPG gamer's to get a great boost in battle. They are powerful
attacks to the enemy or helpful aids to your party. Either way,
they help you quite in bit when battling your enemies.
In Final Fantasy 8, the only times when you get to execute
these powerful attacks are when your character's health has
dropped to a critical level, (or with the use of spells, but
let's not get into that) which is indicated by the HP gauge
turning yellow. Once you have a limit break to select (an
arrow will appear to the right of your ATTACK command, hit
the RIGHT directional button to select the Limit command)
select it you will now execute the type of Limit break your
character utilizes. Every character in FF8 has a different
way of using there limit break, so there isn't one fixed way
to execute the it. To learn how to use a character's limit
break, visit the Characters section, for it has detailed information
on how to use each of there limit breaks, plus more.
Each character has an internal perimeter
known as the crisis level, which works like a gauge bar in Final
Fantasy VII. It affects the chances of using a limit break.
As crisis level increases, chances of using limit break increases.
Below shows the various ways of increasing your crisis level:
