[+] Has dual black magic, he can deal a lot of magic damage in short time
[+] Comet, combine it with dual black magic, you will get the “increase” damage fast
[+] High Magic Status (one of the best for 4 stars heroes)
[-] Only Maxed at 4 stars…
[-] Doesn’t have -ga spells
[-] Doesn’t learn passive Mag + 20%, like other powerful mages (such as Kefka, Tellah, etc).
 It’s obvious but your priority should be magic and MP. Cat’s bell is nice for him
 Vivi only useful on the early game because he’s only maxed at 4 stars (there is still no 5 stars version on JPN version)
 Swap him with more powerful mages once you have gotten them (Ex: Exdeath, Kefka, Tellah).
 Comet “stack up” damage will change once he do something else other than comet, because of this, you may want to use other characters to refill its MP.
 Ramuh, high magic damage boost, he doesn’t need shiva because he’s not a healer.
Vivi is very nice hero that’s only limited by his maximum stars upgrade. He is very useful on the early game because of the multiple elemental spells. I hope he will get 5 stars or even 6 stars on the future, since he’s one of the main chars in FF 9.
Ability that I want to see in the 5 stars
 -ga spell
 Passive Mag + 20/30%
He already has powerful single target spell (comet), so he will be really good if he get 5 stars upgrade and abilities above.
