Since this thread is filled with battle reports and the like, I'll add my own:
I get into a random fight so I can poach a Wildbow I've bred. I bring the Wildbow, McGile my Secret Hunt Lancer, Ramza (mediator with guts), Agrias (chemist with holy sword) and Rachel (oracle with white magic). McGiles is there to poach the Wildbow, and the others are there to take care of any actual enemies.
This shouldn't be noteworthy. I'll poach the pig, and then kill a couple Cuars or Skeletons or whatever. No problem.
The enemies I'm against are... six Morbols and a Vice President. Oh yeah, now that I'm in chapter four I can start getting in super battles.
I start by having my mage lay down protect and shell on everyone. Ramza and Agrias beat the nearest Morbol to death, and I think I might actually pull this off.
VP Richard then casts a terrifically polygonal spell that brings the Morbol back to life at half health. Then another Morbol walks up to the injured one and uses Chakra to bring it back to full health.
But then I remember, my Lancer has Secret Hunt. If I have him poach Morbol, it will be dead forever.
Well, no. The Morbols are all guests, and can't be poached. Richard brings the dead but not poached Morbol and two others I've killed back to life. One of the recently resurrected Morbols uses Chackra again.
I have a change of plans. I need to bring down Richard first. His perma wall and move HP-up are intimidating, but I think if I get him surrounded I should be able to hammer away at him.
Before I can get everyone in position, Agrias has a lucky Crush Punch, autokilling Richard.
My Lancer kills a Morbol and injures another. Ramza books the injured Morbol to death. My Mage was surrounded and killed, but Agrias takes advantage of three of the remaining Morbols being so close together, and manages to Lightning Stab them, killing two.
This leaves one Morbol at less than half health, and one at full health. My mage has 2 on her death counter, but I should be able to clean up the last few enemies before she permanently dies. My Wildbow died unpoached, but to hell with that. Winning against the VP is worth more than some perfume.
It's Ramza's turn, and I move to have him wish my Mage back to life. Agrias and my Lancer kill the Morbol who was at full health. There's only one enemy left, and it's at half health!
Oh, and by the way, Richard the great Vice President of the United States is undead, and comes back to life at full health when his death timer empties.
Agrias is in range to Crush Punch Richard again, but auto-death doesn't proc.
Richard revives every Morbol.
Ramza and firends die horribly.
