Final Fantasy X: Auron Overdrive – Bushido

Auron‘s Overdrive in Final Fantasy X is Bushido. Bushido attacks will do damage to either a single target or all targets, with some having an additional effect. You will be able to learn them as you progress through the game, but it will require some exploring to collect Jecht Spheres.

When executing a Bushido, you see will a timer and a sequence of button inputs.

  • Successfully inputting the sequence within the time limit will increase the power of the Bushido and can add a status effect.
  • The Overdrive will also deal more damage the quicker you input the sequence.

Each Bushido skill has its own unique button sequence.

I'm a huge gamer who especially loves the Final Fantasy series. I will play just about any game, especially if it has anything resembling a Dragoon.
