Standard Equipment: The Mystic Whip, a powerful weapon that has a 30% chance of paralyzing foes and improves her magical potency, The Mist Ring which allows her to confuse foes with afterimages whenever she summons the Mist Dragon

Intelligence: As one of the last remaining summoners, Rydia has mastered the art during her time in Feymarch, being able to call upon even the mightiest Eidolons, such as Leviathan and Bahamut to aid her in combat. She is also extremely skilled in Black Magic, learning every spell in the game short of Twin Meteor and even demonstrates some proficiency in White Magic. She is also somewhat proficient with knives, daggers, whips, and bows, though she heavily prefers to use magic.

Weaknesses: While she has vast reserves, Rydia's ability to summon Eidolons and use magic is limited by her supply of mana, making protracted fights difficult. She has to speak to invoke the Eidolons and her normal magic, meaning that silencing her will leave her virtually helpless.
