Follow Suit responds to any incoming attack by using the same ability in retaliation.
Retaliate is a hybrid ability learned by advancing to rank 5 as a Martial Artist or Jester immediately after completing them. Maribel also learns Retaliate at level 5 in the PS1 version (she instead learns Bang at level 9 in the remake). In the 3DS version, hybrid abilities no longer exist and this ability was removed from the game entirely - however, Jesters can learn a similar ability named Sobering Slap by advancing to rank 2.
Localized as "Imitate" in this game, it can be learnt by the Float-o-copier amongst others.

- In Japanese, the Float-o-copier (マネマネ mane mane) has the same name as this ability, except this monster's name is written in katakana instead of hiragana. In addition, this monster is able to learn this ability in Dragon Quest Monsters.
