The Emulator is a Character Class from the Wild Arms XF game.
The Emulator class is one of the final four general classes available to the player after Act 3-7. True to it's name, the Emulator "emulates" enemy skills in battle via "Download," which these skills are then learned and kept with the unit and can be used even after moving. The Emulator can also randomly emulate the previous action of another unit with "Action Replay" under the conditions where the Emulator is adjacent to the unit that has taken action on an enemy unit that is also adjacent to the unit and Emulator. Their standard equipment are Bombs as weapons and Clocks as armor: Bombs have a unique attribute in damaging the surrounding HEX panels of the target and ignore the "Flying" status of some enemies, whereas Clocks increase DEF based on the amount of MP used. With "MP Recovery" and "Conserve MP" (even with "Download" to certain extents), conservation in the use of Originals is less than a restriction than usual for this class. Along with the skill "Exploit Weakness," elemental attacks and/or Originals are much more effective on targeted units. Amassing an Emulator with the four basic elemental enemy skills, "Electrigger," and the wide assortment of status ailment spells puts the Emulator class at a higher tier than your typical mage-type class.
Original Commands are techniques that can be used in battle provided the needed requirements are met. The Emulator begins with only one command and can learn more by using the Download command on an enemy with a learnable skill. A list of enemy skills and where to obtain them is in the next section.
