This is the last of the "brilliant" stuff I've come up with, but is more of a "bells-and-whistles" kind of thing. It allows you to use a move that your character can't normally use in battle (or at least for a while) to finish off a weakened enemy. It can be pretty cool, primarily because you can have different finishing moves for different enemies, including (with some skill on your part) the 4-man RTP attack. There are some limits, but who cares? You get to blow away an enemy with 50 HP left with a move that takes away 1250 HP. First, create a common event called Finishing Move that reads like this:
Blow him Away
]Show choices: finish enemy/spare enemy when [finish enemy] show choices: actor 1, actor 2 (etc) When Actor 1 -change skills [Ralph] + [Burst] Force action [actor 1] [burst] [index 1] <---this is the "first" enemy -change skills [Ralph] - [burst] <----(ha! sucker. You cant' use burst again) (then make one for each of the other actors in the party, following the same Learn/Use/Forget format) when cancel > branch end > when [Spare Enemy] > (nothin' .Why? Because you're boring.) >Branch End
Then go to your Troops tab. Look at the bottom where it says "condition", open the dialogue box and check off "enemy" then fill out the box so it says (roughly):
condition-enemy 1 [name]'s HP is 10% or below" then in the box below that looks like a file folder put Call Common Event [Finishing Move]. Once you've beaten enemy 1 to a pulp, the choice box will pop up, asking if you want to blow them away, or just keep whacking them with your sword. If you have more then 1 enemy, you need to create another event page just for them, and a carbon copy called Finishing Move 2 and so on. So if you have an enemy troop with 3 enemies, you'll need an event page and common event for each one, with the target index set for their respective targets (don't worry, their name appears with their index # ).
I might be forgeting something, but my wrist is burning, so I'll stop here and maybe add more later.

Only 1 thing i can say:FINISH HIM!!!! But good event.
lol thanks. But I don't think it even qualifies as an event. It runs on Common Events, though, so I guess it qualifies. I just can't stand it when half your party's dead and you've got the enemy on the ropes and then do them in with a little sword poke after all the crazy stuff. It's so anti-climactic. It's more satisfying if you can just blow the **** out of them rather than poke them in the eye.
