Can You Break the Damage Cap?

Damage Cap of Each Attack

The damage cap per hit is 9,999 damage. Damage dealt by each attack depends on the Attack or Magic Attack stat of the character and weakness or resistances of its target, which can be further increased by critical hits.

The damage cap can be reached easier in Easy and Normal difficulties than in Hard difficulty since all enemies in Hard difficulty have increased defense and magic defense stats, which means you might need to stagger an enemy first and increase the stagger damage bonus or use attacks that the enemy is weak against to reach the damage cap in Hard difficulty.

How to Break the Damage Cap

Normally, the 9,999 damage cap cannot be broken regardless of your attack rating or the enemy's defense rating.

There is only one certain point in the game when you are able to break the damage cap. Once that enemy is staggered, you can use attacks that increase stagger damage bonus then follow them with attacks that deal increased damage to staggered enemies like Cloud's Infinity's End, or simply use a damaging limit break, and you can deal a five-digit damage real easy. You can achieve this amount of damage easily regardless of the difficulty that you are playing on.
