How to Use the Parry Materia

Dodge, Block, and Deal Damage

Parry with damage.jpg

If you have a Parry materia equipped on one of your materia slots, you can execute Parry during combat by holding R1 and dodging by pressing the X button while moving to a certain direction using the left analog stick.

While Parrying, you are executing a block and a dodge while also dealing minimal damage to enemies hit.

Stay on Punisher Mode After Parrying

Without a Parry materia, Cloud will change back to Operator Mode after he dodges while in Punisher Mode. Equip Cloud with Parry materia to make him stay on Punisher Mode even after dodging using Parry.

Why do you keep saying the dodge button is "X" when the game clearly states that its "O" pressing x while blocking does the same thing as when you're not blocking, it pauses the fight and opens the command list.
