* {{Jossed}}: After Edea got Time Crush and Astral Time as Soul Breaks, and was getting weapons based on Rinoa's Blaster Edges (much like Ultimecia's exclusive weapons in ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia]]''), many players presumed she would be the game's stand-in for Ultimecia until the latter joined the roster in 2018. Word may have reached [=DeNA=], too; Edea's Burst Soul Break is named ''Maelstrom'', while Ultimecia's is ''True Maelstrom''.

Added DiffLines:

* TranslationCorrection: Most of the names are preserved from their English language source material, but some are very quietly rectified. For example, what was "4x Cut" in ''Final Fantasy VII'' became "Quad Cut" in Cloud's Burst Mode.


* FanNickname: The fan community has an elaborate dictionary of terminology to use.
** "Stop/Load", or simply "S/L", is a fan term for the popular SaveScumming tactic that involves force quitting the game, then reloading to restart a battle when the RNG starts turning against you.
** "Wall" for any effect that mirrors Sentinel's Grimoire. When Tyro's [=USB3=], Divine Veil Grimoire, arrived in 3rd Anniversary, it was consequently nicknamed "Godwall" for being a much stronger Sentinel. [[note]]Also, this is due to [[DubNameChange its japanese name]], Godly Wall Grimoire.[[/note]]
** "Chase" for Soul Break effects that add triggers for follow-up attacks.
** Flan Fest 2015, also known as the Flan Genocide. See the PeninsulaOfPowerLeveling entry on the main page.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Cecil Harvey]]'s two separate character slots, as a Dark Knight and a Paladin, often are respectively called "Decil" and "Pecil".
** Elemental damage buffs granted by some Soul Breaks are known as "[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI En-Element]]". In turn, abilities that increase vulnerability to a specific element are called "[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Imperil]]".
** "Drawtaliate" is one of the known nicknames for the infamous [[DiscOneNuke Retaliate]] [[GameBreaker/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper Meta]].
** Due to its spell animation, 'meatballs' has become a playful name for the powerful Meteor ability.
** Soul Break Celebration Fests are 'Soul Breakfasts'. Woe to players that are still 'hungry' after these.
** "Quickcast" and "Instant Cast", or more simply QC and IC, for effects that reduce or remove the charge time of actions. "Quickcycle" is for Soul Breaks that include "reduce casting time of user's next action after using a <type or element> ability", since the character can then use such abilities every turn and continuously benefit from the reduction.
** Rods and staves have become 'StatSticks', since they only exist to boost the stats of mage characters, but this lately has been applied for every Soul Break relic that has no function other than boosting a character's stat upon mastery.
** "Red Tidus" for Auron, who, for some weird reason, was mistakenly labeled "Tidus" bordered in red during his introductory event.
** Many mistypings from cellphone correctors later, "Lady Tuna" became a thing for [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Yuna]]. In the same vein, "[=PainFish=]" is a nickname given to the Anima Aeon...
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Onion Knight]]'s buffing Ultra Soul Breaks got the monikers/abbreviations of [=pUSB=] for ''Forbidden Power'', and [=mUSB=] for ''Forbidden Wisdom''.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Bartz]]'s reputation as a four-element-focused Spellblade who can do up to ''five to six casts in a single turn'', discounting the Chase of his Ultras, earned him the sweet nickname of "[[BladeSpam Bartzspammer]]".
** "Cloud Keeper" is used to refer to the game's [[WolverinePublicity blatant favoritism]] towards Cloud. Nowadays, "Ramza Keeper" is just as common.
** One troper is eventually working into evolving "Cloud Keeper" into "Cloudburst", due to [[GameBreaker/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper how powerful Cloud is as a Wind]][[note]]and Dark in JP since the 4th Anniversary[[/note]] [[GameBreaker/FinalFantasyRecordKeeper DPS, being able to solo-DPS ''D260 bosses'']].
** One misspelling caused [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyType0 Cinque]] to gain the nickname "Conque". Blends with her fame as a ''very strong'' Earth DPS which also got the reputation of being a "Magicite Killer" [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Conque" as in ''"Conqueror"'', or alternatively, the act of "conking" the enemy over the head with a blunt instrument, which is fitting since her main weapon type is hammers[[/labelnote]].
** "Maxwu" as a {{Pun}} on [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyII Minwu]]'s name, due to his USB Enduring Revival, which gives more HP stock than any other Soul Break in the game [[note]]A 2k Autoheal, plus a 30% Stoneskin[[/note]].
** "Dingus" for [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Ingus]], for no apparent reason other than sounding funny.
** Before Gau got his new Ultra in JP, his massive unreliability earned him [[TierInducedScrappy a tier of his own]]: the "Gau Tier".
** Multi-target Boost (usually referring to Attack buffs) and Haste effects are referred to as Boostga and Hastega, referencing the series's usual magic tier naming. Multi-target heals are called [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV "Medicas"]]. And eventually a proper Hastega White Magic got released.
** Sharpshooter abilities are often referred to as "Blitzball" abilities, as the first few released were water-elemental and came out in ''FFX'' events.
** Zack's Air Strike Soul Break is often referred to as "Helicopter Thingy", while Celes's Indomitable Blade SSB is nicknamed "Indonesian Blade" after a [[RougeAnglesOfSatin typo]].
** Gilgamesh is sometimes called "Greg", after a joke from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV''.
** [=DeNA=] may be refusing to bring [[VideoGame/WorldOfFinalFantasy Enna Kros]] to GL, but in Global she already has a cult following, and the nickname "Coffee", thanks to both her USB and her known taste for it.
** The "Dagger of Resolve" relic, granting Garnet's first Burst Soul Break, is sometimes called "Dagger's Dagger of Dagger", playing on her nickname in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''.
** 6★ equipment pulls in Relic Draw are typically referred to as "discos" due to their distinct patterned orb to distinguish them from 5★ orbs and glowing light effect making them resemble disco balls.
** The new Torment adds a new level of difficulty, which is commonly referred as "[[BribingYourWayToVictory DWhale]]", due to demanding things normally expected from those who burn money into getting fully geared with selections and draws.
** Due to Wednesday being the day the Chocobo Shop renews its stock [[note]]Consisting of Stamina Potions, Orbs, and a mythril[[/note]], "Kwehdnsday" became a thing.
** The BlindIdiotTranslation and DubNameChange that normally come with the new Torment abilities is the source of discussions and memes.
*** This started right at the first batch, when [=DeNA=] made so that the new dual-element Spellblade abilities had two names. In-game, they are Blast Strike and Tempest Strike, but their Ability Records follow the name of the one that preceded it, Snowspell Strike. Hence, it's not unheard of people calling them, respectively, Blastspell and Stormspell Strike. [=DeNA=] eventually patched those two names into the in-game names as their rightful ones.
*** A big (And according to [=DeNA=], ''intentional'') BlindIdiotTranslation case brought the Vortex 6* Black Magic ability as "Voltech". Some people went the extra mile and tried nicknaming it "[[Anime/TekkamanBlade Voltekka]]". [[labelnote:About this one case...]][=DeNA=]'s excuse for "Voltech" is that they didn't want to give the ability the same name as one of [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts Sora]]'s Soul Breaks. Needless to say, people weren't okay with that, especially since the Soul Break in question is his default one, meaning few people bother to use it or even remember it exists, while Vortex is an infinitely more important ability that sees constant use everywhere.[[/labelnote]]
*** Quick Disaster, the dual-element 6* Celerity ability, came here as ''Flash Disaster''. While the new name isn't egregious by itself, people started doing memes based on the translated name for [=FSSBs=] (Glints) on GL: they now refer to it as "Glint Disaster".
*** In the same batch, Fire Assault and Storm Assault, the GL names for Burn Ride and Storm Ride, the 6* Thief abilities. Some people are ''definitely'' not okay with the new names, saying they collide with the new 5-hit Spellblade abilities (Inferno Assault setting a trend for its Earth equivalent, Tremor Assault), and want to suggest [=DeNA=] to change these to "Burning Raid" and "Storm Raid".
*** [=DeNA=] attacks again with the Lightning Celerity 5* ability. It has come here as ''Ripper Bolt'', but some people didn't accept it and are calling it "[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Ripping]] Bolt" to combine with the similar Wind ability, Ripping Blast.
** Despite not being a new category itself, Ultra Soul Breaks that endow Bravery Mode upon characters got the moniker "Brave Ultra Soul Breaks", or "BUSB/Brave Ultra" for short.
** Various new [=USBs=] that are added into the game in the banners that follow the release of a new Torment are sometimes called "torment bait" because they generally include extremely specific effects that often seem to be designed to provide the party with all the necessary defensive statuses needed along with other effects useful for that Torment, even if they're found on characters that aren't usually even known for that type of Soul Break, meaning they easily come off as a transparent attempt to make players pull on these banners if they're desperate to beat the said Torment:
*** Montblanc's "Trinity Combo" debuffs the enemy but doesn't grant the party Haste because Cuchulainn Slows your party on a regular basis, meaning you'll have to bring Hastega as a seperate ability regardless.
*** Basch's "Exemplar of Honor" is a clone of Rikku's [=USB1=], which is useful for Zodiark because of its shifting physical and magical damage immunity.
*** Cait Sith's "Danger Dice" debuffs all enemies along with buffing the party, which is useful because Jenova SYNTHESIS has multiple respawning targets.
*** Snow's Revenge Wall provides the party with Shell and Haste but no Protect because Dahaka doesn't have any physical attacks, and it sets the party's critical hit rate to 50% and gives them an Attack buff because most effective damage dealers in the realm are physical.
*** There's also [=USBs=] that can similarily be described as "magicite bait" for the same reasons: Ultimecia's second USB is probably one of the more blatant examples, as it not only debuffs the exact same stat combination the boss she's best used against buffs itself with which overwrites it completely, but her level 3 Brave command also Dispels the enemy along with dealing 5-digit damage, getting rid of both of its remaining defensive buffs at the same time.
