, also translated as GP, Gold, and G, is the currency in all of the Final Fantasy games.
It is acquired throughout the games and used for making various purchases and occasionally for some abilities such as Gil Toss. Usually, the only time gil is seen is when using the Gil Toss command.
Gil Toss often does great damage, but at the obvious drawback of costing a great deal of gil.
In Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, gil can be used to bribe monsters to leave the battle as well as entice Yojimbo into attacking enemies.
For example, in Final Fantasy IV Potion costs 30 gil, while they cost 250 gil in Final Fantasy VI and 100 gil in Final Fantasy VII.
At the Gold Saucer amusement park, GP is used to pay for many attractions, while others charge gil. GP cannot usually be exchanged with gil, but a man randomly appears outside the park who sells the player GP for 100 gil apiece.
Otherwise, GP can only be acquired by winning the Saucer's minigames.
There are a handful of exceptions to this, allowing the player to earn discounts at some stores, but this is rare.
Gil has many other uses, such as the Gil Toss ability, which allows the player to damage enemies by throwing money at them.
