Ititially, one must have obtained the Gun Mage dress sphere. This dress sphere can be found in both chapters 1 and 2. When you have your Gun Mage dress sphere, you will notice you have the ability to use ‘Blue Bullet’ – powers very similar to Blue Magic from previous Final Fantasy games. An example of this is the Enemy Skills (E-Skill) in Final Fantasy VII.

Basically what the Blue Bullet ability does, is pick up any learnable attacks produced by an enemy. So, if it is possible for one to learn an enemie’s attack, your wearing the Gun Mage dress sphere will render this possible. Unlike with Enemy Skills, the Gun Mage does not need to survive an assault in order to absorb the enemy ability (though clearly if the entire party dies, the game will be over, so be careful!) It should be pointed out that there are two defensive Blue Bullet abilities – White Wind and Mighty Guard – these must be learnt by confusing your enemy so that they use these curative spells on your party member.

There are a total of 16 Blue Bullet skills which can be gained, which have been outlined in the table below. Please note that there are four columns, each of which represent a different, aptly named quality with regard to the Blue Bullet skill.
