Exdeath
ExDeath artwork
Final Fantasy V

Voice:

Tarou Ishida\Gerald C. Rivers

Concept:

Guard Counter (Japanese)/Entropic Adversary (English)


Most of his abilities and actions involve defense, but when he successfully guards from an incoming attack the resulting counter attacks will be brutal. Due to his play style, his movement is unusually slow.


How to UnlockEdit

Buy for 500PP from the PP Catalog.

AppearanceEdit

Exdeath's appearance is directly taken from Amano's art with no changes. Like Golbez and Garland, Exdeath appears as an intimidating figure adorned in heavy armor. Unlike most villains, Exdeath's armor is bright and colorful, having a cyan hue and adorned highly decorated lining and cloth and a bright long cape with several orb-like objects coiling around his waist. However, the general evil motif is still apparent by the long, sharp pauldrons and horned helmet. As with Golbez, his armor is most characterized by his helmet, which appears to have a very thin visor that leaves virtually no room for sight.

Alternate appearanceEdit

  • Santalum Robe - ExDeath's first alternate costume swaps his colors for a yellow-greenish sheen to resemble ExDeath's Soul, an optional boss found in FFV.
  • Ebony Robe - His second alternate costume in Dissidia 012 is based on concept of Neo ExDeath drawn by Amano, minus the centaur attributes. His looks are completely different, now featuring a helmetless character with white skin, yellow eyes and teeth with two horns protruding from either side of his head and fins located at the base of them, along with black, spiky hair. He now wears a suit of black armor and a matching cape with a long, yellow sash around his waist. His EX Mode changes him to resemble the sprite version of Neo ExDeath.

AbilitiesEdit

ExDeath's style is referred to as Entropic Adversary. His gameplay is strictly guard-and-counter. Using special guard-based Brave techniques, ExDeath can effectively punish his opponents with impunity as some of his guard techniques can even guard against HP attacks, making him invincible if used right. His regular Brave attacks are simple in nature but have a very high startup time, which not only makes them highly predictable, but also restricts his alternative play to mid-to-long range fighting. Though he has the most sluggish movement out of everyone in the game, one of his Brave attacks allow him to teleport anywhere in the battleground, allowing him to instantly close gaps. Exdeath is not recommened to players who prefer to attack effectively whenever they please.

Brave AttacksEdit

ブラックホール Black Hole Initial

Ground

Air

30(15) 180

140

ExDeath opens a rift in time-space which acts as a vacuum and pulls the enemy towards it. Moreso a hindering measure than actual damage. It works as a setup for all of Exdeath's offensive moves.

Ground

30(15) 180

120

ExDeath holds out his hand while charging it with magic before shooting a white fireball. It reflects off guards and air dashes, bounce of surfaces, and is rather slow to charge. Has a 2-3 second charge time before release, leaving ExDeath very vulnerable to enemy attacks if they are close enough. Has knockback for chase.

It is also the Down O Counter, with an increased speed and power and able to be shot twice.

ソードダンス Sword Dance 3

Ground

Air

30(15) 180

120

ExDeath floats forward at the enemy before slashing in a large arc upwards with his sword. Has knockback to it which can add to chases. However, it has a large startup time, which can make it predictable.

It is also the Up O Counter, with an increased speed and power and able to be used twice in a row.

ハリケーソ Hurricane 12

Ground

Air

30(15) 180

120

Surrounds Exdeath with a tornado and deals consecutive hits to the target before sending them away. It reflects projectiles and most assist attacks, making it a suitable counter move.

It is also the Neutral O Counter, hitting twice as much as the normal tornado and with a higher overall damage output.

磁場転換 Magnetic Teleport (known as "Reverse Polarity" in English) Initial

Initial

Ground

Air

30(15) 180

140

Holding the O button sends out a circular ring that will chase the enemy, and releasing it will teleport Exdeath to where the ring was positioned, sending the enemy flying upwards upon hit. The ring bounces off surfaces, and the attack is guardable. Unlike the other offensive moves, the teleport has almost no cooldown. In the NA release, it is unguardable.

Its cooldown has been increased in Duodecim, no longer being spammable.

ショートガード Short Guard ("Low Guard" in English) 20

Initial

Ground

Air

20(10) 140

ExDeath brings his cloak up in front of him as a green forcefield forms that repels/reflects projectiles. It has small duration and downtime.
ミドルガード Middle Guard 24

Initial

Ground

Air

20(10) 140

Exdeath forms a pentagonal electricty shield in front of him that blocks frontal Brave attacks. It has a set duration and moves to face enemy.
ハイガード High Guard 30

Ground

Air

20(10) 140

90

Exdeath summons a large circular red barrier in front of him. Unlike the other guards, High Guard does not have a set duration, lasting as long as the O button is held. At its shortest, High Guard's downtime is actually shorter than Middle Guard's. This Guard will block almost all Brave attacks and a few HP attacks, as well as nullifying some other HP attacks.
オールガード All Guard ("Omni Guard" in English) 38

12

Ground

Air

30(15) 180

120

Exdeath charges the move by spinning his sword in front of him and, upon release, a yellow sphere surrounds him for an instant. Although the release time can last as long as wished, the duration and downtime of the move are always the same. It is the slowest to come out, has the shortest duration and has a similar downtime as Middle Guard. It guards all Brave and almost all HP attacks, regardless of direction. Tapping the button removes the charge time and works as fast as a normal guard.

Hp AttacksEdit

Japanese Name Translation Level Type CP AP Notes
テルタアタシク Delta Attack Initial

Initial

Ground

Air

40(20) 180 A large circular design will appear in front before ExDeath stabs his sword through, sending a magical spike/stab through the barrier. It has similar guarding propeties as Middle Guard. Although linear, it is Exdeath's fastest non-counter HP attack. This attack is nearly identical to Warrior of Light's "Shield of Light" attack, just with a slightly longer range, charge time & less homing.
グランドクロス Grand Cross 16

38

Ground

Air

40(20) 300 Several dark orbs will close in on the enemy's position, dealing Brave damage, before coming together and exploding into an "X" shape. The attack only works at mid range, unable to appear too close or too far away, and has limited vertical reach.

It is also the Down Square Counter, gaining an extended vertical and long range reach, as well as being considerably faster.

アルマゲスト Almagest 8

30

Ground

Air

40(20) 300 Exdeath will encase himself in a dark sphere and chase the enemy before shattering it, damaging anything close to him. Exdeath is completely vulnerable while charging the attack, and it is slow in both movement and execution. However, it can be interrupted by using a conventional Guard or by evading.

It is also the Neutral Square Counter, gaining a great boost in both speed and range, and exploding upon contact with the target.

EX ModeEdit

Power of the Void - ExDeath's armor darkens to a deep royal blue and takes on tree-like qualities, based on his tree form in the penultimate battle in Final Fantasy V.

EX BonusEdit

1. Regen - Recovers health over time

2. Speed Guard - The recovery time of guards becomes shorter. In addition, the number of Brave Counters that Exdeath can perform is doubled: he can perform 2 Hurricanes, 4 Reaper Swords and 4 Vacuums out of the same counter.

EX BurstEdit

"The Laws of the Universe mean nothing!": The player must hold the O button as a numbered bar decreases, and release it when it reaches 0. Therefore, there are two outcomes to this Ex Burst:

1. Grand Cross - (fail to deplete the limit bar or too long to release the button) A glorified version of Grand Cross is executed.

2. Neo Almagest - (Completely deplete the limit bar) ExDeath ensnares his opponent into a void, compresses it to bit size and the proceeds to pulverize it in his hands as the music suddenly stops and fades to black.

In Dissidia, Exdeath's EX Burst is the strongest among all the villains. However in Dissidia 012, Gilgamesh has the strongest EX Burst.

EquipmentEdit

Exdeath can wield rods, staffs, shields, gauntlets, helms, light armor, and heavy armor.
