How to Obtain Yojimbo Tips and Walkthrough

Yojimbo Abilities

Yojimbo Special Attack Daigoro

Yojimbo sends out his dog Daigoro to attack the enemy. Yojimbo's weakest attack and lowers his compatibility whenever it is used.

Yojimbo Special Attack Kozuka

Yojimbo draws out knives and throws it at the enemy. Does not affect Yojimbo's compatibility.

Yojimbo Special Attack Wakizashi

Yojimbo slashes all the enemies with his katana. Increases Yojimbo's compatibility.

Yojimbo Special Attack Zanmato

Yojimbo's instant kill move. This move eliminates any enemy standing in your way, even bosses. Increases Yojimbo's affinity when used.

Yojimbo's Abilities

Yojimbo Cannot Learn Abilities

Yojimbo is a unique Aeon in that he cannot learn any abilities. His moves are locked to his 4 special attacks.

The probability of using each moves depends on Yojimbo's Payment, the Overdrive Gauge, Zanmato Level, and Yojimbo's Compatibility towards Yuna.

Yojimbo's Compatibility

Pay him Decently and Don't let him die!

Yojimbo will be more willing to use better moves such Wakizashi and Zanmato depending on Yojimbo's Payment and Compatibility. Yojimbo's Compatibility goes higher whenever he uses Wakizashi and Zanmato.

Yojimbo's Compatibility falls lower whenever the following happens.

  • Yojimbo Gets dismissed before even making a turn.
  • Yojimbo Dies
  • Yojimbo gets little to no payment

Yojimbo's Compatibility raises whenever the following happens.

  • Yojimbo uses Wakizashi
  • Yojimbo uses Zanmato

A good way to check compatibility is to check the moves Yojimbo is using. If yojimbo uses wakizashi a lot more often then Yojimbo's Compatibility is high. If Yojimbo however, uses Kozuka and Daigoro more than the two former moves, then it might be wise to start paying Yojimbo more.

Yojimbo's Randomness

Yojimbo Cannot Be Fully Controlled

While it might be possible to increase the chances of better moves being used by Yojimbo. The sole factor that decides his move is still randomness and the player's luck.
