IX. Limit Breaks

A. Squall's Limit Breaks

Squall's limit breaks start out with the Renzokuken, then ends with a finishing move. The finishing move is determined by which weapon he has (see Part VIII: Weapons for how to get them), and is completely random.

D. Selphie's Limit Breaks

There is nothing special required for Selphie to learn her limit break, "Slots". When it's time, a box will pop up, showing what break is selected. You can choose to use this, or hit Redo to find something else. Here are three that I know of:

E. Rinoa's Limit Breaks

In order to learn these, you must set them in the menu screen.

These first four happen randomly, and cannot be selected:
