There are two different abilities with the same English-language name. The first, 逃げる / にげる [nigeru] or 'run' in Japanese, is a basic command available in earlier Final Fantasies that makes either the whole party or just the user of Escape run from battle. It has also been translated as 'Run'. The second, エスケプ [escep] in Japanese, is a spell. Note that Flee is a separate ability from either.
