Throughout the game, your characters will find special items called Tools. Tools are used on the field screens (except the World Map) by pressing the Square button, and are used to solve puzzles or perform other actions. Each character has 3 Tools that are unique to them, and with the exception of the Radar, the Tools are mandatory to find before you can complete the game.
