- This trait occasionally cancels an enemy attack and replaces it with an attack from the player.
- Evasion, Parry, and Blink/Utsusemi checks must all fail before a counter attack can be made.
- Counterattacks are subject to a Hit Rate check to see if they land. Missed counters are treated as if they never happened.
- If an incoming Counter is parried (or countered), that Counter is also treated as if it had missed.
- If the enemy evades the counter attack, the attack on the player goes through normally.
- Counterattacks can Critical Hit and their damage can therefore be increased with Critical Hit Damage equipment and abilities like Impetus.
- Counterattack damage is increased during Counterstance if Job Points are invested into the ability.
- Weaponskills, magic, and ranged attacks cannot be countered.
- All counterattacks are considered blunt damage.
- The player will not gain TP from a counter attack, but an enemy will receive TP from a successful counter-attack against them.
- Equipment that says "Counter +X" gives an X% increase in Counter proc rate, before the accuracy check.
- This trait caps at 80% (79.2% after accuracy check).
