- "Revive a downed ally."
|Tinder is a Mars Djinni found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age, and is numerically the fifteenth Mars Djinni in the games' official Djinni ordering and thus the eighth numbered Mars Djinni of The Lost Age.|
Tinder is located in Hesperia Settlement in the far western region of Hesperia. Cast Growth on the plant to the left, then at the top of the area where there is a wooden crate, push it off the left hole in the fence below. (Note that it is possible to push the crate off the right hole so that it drops onto Tinder and traps it, causing the box to shake similar to what can happen in Kibombo Mountains; you'll have to leave and reenter so that the puzzle resets itself if that happens, though.) From there, press the box right so that it falls further down, then use Move while standing below it to move it one step further right. You are now able to hop onto the top of the box and reach the series of wall ladders that connects to Tinder's ledge, as well as the cave on the opposite side containing a chest with 166 coins.
In Dark Dawn, Tinder is found in Tonfon on the rooftops in the western half of the city. You need to get on a box across from the sleeping ferry guard and Slap him awake. He will move the ferry north, which will allow you to get to this djinn.
When Set, it increases base HP by 12 and base PP by 5.
When Tinder's battle effect is used, a targeted downed Adept is surrounded by a particularly elaborate visual of glowing red holographic images of avian pinions falling onto the target. The down Adept is revived and fully cured to maximum HP without any inaccuracy, just as though it is the Revive Psynergy without the PP cost. It is an upgraded version of Spark and similar reviving Djinn from the original Golden Sun.
Tinder is easily the best of the Djinn in the series that revives a targeted Adept, for the simple reason that Tinder does all of what it is supposed to without any strings attached. It is superior to the Mercury Djinni Dew from the first game, the Mars Djinni Spark, and the first game's Venus Djinni Quartz, because those only have 80%, 60%, and 50% chances to revive the targeted Adept, respectively, and when they do connect their HP-restoration rates are merely 80%, 60%, and 50%, respectively. Tinder therefore emulates the powerful effect of the Revive Psynergy, and is good to have on an Adept that does not have that Psynergy or Water of Life items. The only other reviving Djinni that can possibly be considered alongside Tinder, then, is the Mercury Djinni Balm, because while its dimensions are identical merely to Spark, Balm gives that reviving chance to each of all the downed Adepts in the current battling party at once.
Tinder is easily combustible material used to ignite fires.
