Final Fantasy XIII - Paradigm Shift

With the Paradigm Shift (Optima Change in Japanese) you can change roles during battle. Which can be very useful when different enemies require different tactics. You can pre-assign which roles to take when going into Paradigm Shift.

Meaning that if you want Vanille to become a Medic after Paradigm Shift, you will have to assign that role in the menu to a predetermined Paradigm Shift name displayed in a list before entering battle. In the beginning not all roles are available. But as the story progresses, everybody will be able to assume every role.

It can be very difficult to understand, but you'll get used to it pretty quick.
