It's only really useful if you're fighting Dark Aeons as they tend to put every single negative status under the sun on you. Also it's useful for Great Marlboros and a few others nasties that you get in the American version.

Ribbon protects agsinst most status changes - it doesn't protect against Curse, Death or any breaks.

what blows is that u cant inlflict curse. it would come in handy when fightin belgemine's aeons,(SPOILER) Jecht , or any aeons in general. but it would make sense, considering u would only use it maybe 5 times at the most. and ribbon protects against death, just not KO. but their arent many bosses who can inflict death, so it doesnt matter much. although deathproof comes in handy when fightin (SPOILER) yunalesca and the moster arena bosses

It does the same thing it has always done.

It doesn't do the same as it's always done - not quite. It doesn't protect against death. Try fighting something with that causes death and even with ribbon it'll kill you. Deathproof is the only way of protecting against death.

Anyway, you can collect dark matters if you want but the best way is to fight dark aeons.

They drop armour with break hp limit and ribbon as abilities so your best bet is to keep fighting the really easy ones until they drop something with 4 slots and ribbon in. If you get 4 slots and ribbon & break hp then even better. That's what I did for the 3 main characters that I used.

I don't think the ribbon ever protected against Death. The ribbon protects against almost every status change. Death is not a status change. Also there are two people contradicting each other. Is it available in the American version or not? Are the Dark Aeons the only monsters that drop it?

its in intl. and european only, it does protect against sudden death, or at least whenever i was attacked by a boss at the monster who could use death, it never did anything, it just showed that triangle and said IMMUNE, and then i get all happy. The dark aeons drop it, but even thats easier said than done. or u could customize a shield with 99 dark matter and get it. it doesnt protect against curse though. so good luck getting one for all of ur members

It certainly doesn't protect against some kinds of death.

I'm almost certain (but I'd have to go back and check) that there are some creatures who can use a "death inflicting" attack on you even with ribbon.

In 7 I'm almost certain that ribbon protected against death.

im gonna correct myself now, or something. i dunno how it works, it doesnt protect against death (at least it doesnt in 7-9) i dunno what the deal is in FFX. i dunno, it protects sometimes, and sometimes it doesnt. or it might just be that death is just like any other status change, and there is a probability that it works and wont work. i dunno, but i figgured out that it doesnt protect against death.

yup he, he does so in us version and in intl. i dunno about other versions. but he should give u a speech... sorta, after u fight/deny/lose to him on how u caught all the fiends. then once u unlock nemesis, he gives an even longer speech(if u beat him)

Capture 5 of each fiends on all area in the monster arena, and the owner will give you 99 dark matter.

You can also beat dark aeons for dark matters, i recommend Yojimbo. You can kill him again and again (you have to beat him 5 times inside the cavern to really kill him, so you just have to beat him 4 times, go out of the cavern and go in and he would still be there) you will receive dark matter or master sphere everytime.

OR

if you've already unlocked Penance, you could try to kill it's arms again and again as they regenerate. If you stayed long to kill as many arms as you can, you'll get a bunch of dark matters! :D

I have 99 Dark Matters, but the option to create the Ribbon ability has not appeared.

The most obvious question must be: Do you have the International or European version of the game?
If not, you're screwed.


The second most obvious question: Are you using an "armor" of any sort to customize?

Armor was the first place that I checked. I even checked the weapons just to be sure. I was told that in the American version the Ribbon is still accessible. We can now put this rumor to rest. I think I'll move back to Germany and buy the game at a game shop. :tongue:
