FULL Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons Guide

This Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons Guide will teach you EVERYTHING you need to know about the best weapons for every character in Final Fantasy X

If you’re playing Final Fantasy X (FFX), you’re going to want to know how to get all of the Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons. Each character in FFX has a special, final weapon, which is acquired by collecting three components: the weapon itself, a crest, and a sigil. The weapon invariably starts off weak, but once you power it up with both of the other items, it becomes very powerful. Here is everything you need to know about acquiring the Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons for every character in FFX:

Tidus: Caladbolg – Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons

The Weapon

You acquire the Caladbolg in the Calm Lands. Luckily Tidus’s weapon is one of the most accessible. All you have to do is win the Chocobo Race in the Calm Lands, then go to the northwest section of the map and climb down the little ramp in the back. Caladbolg is waiting for you there.

Sun Crest

It’s available in the room where you fight Yunalesca in the Zanarkand Dome. You have to go down the stairs in her chamber, and you’ll appear in… the exact same room, but there will be a chest containing the Sun Crest. It’s very important that you do this right after fighting Yunalesca, as, unless you’re playing the very first FF10 original edition for PS2, you have to fight Dark Bahamut if you leave the area and come back after the first time you fight Yunalesca.

Sun Sigil

This item is super easy to find, but actually getting it is another story. You have to win the Chocobo Race in the Calm Lands with a time of 0’00. Better get comfortable with chocobo racing, because you’re going to be attempting this a lot. It’s luck-based and super irritating. Hopefully, you get lucky and get it done quickly. That said, it’s not nearly the most tedious thing on this list.

Abilities

Once you fully power up the Caladbolg (via the weird orb thing in Macalania Woods), you’ll end up with the following abilities:

  • Break Damage Limit
  • Triple Overdrive
  • Evade & Counter
  • Magic Counter

The weapon also deals more damage at max HP. At full HP, the weapon deals 100% damage, scaling all the way down to 9.1% damage at 1 HP.

Yuna: Nirvana – Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons

The Weapon

All you have to do to acquire Nirvana is finish the monster collection for the Calm Lands. That’s pretty easy because if you’re playing FFX, you’re probably going to end up finishing the monster collection for… multiple regions, since that monster arena is a big part of the post-game.

Moon Crest

The easiest of all of these items to acquire – it’s in a chest on the beach in Besaid and you can grab it whenever you want, right at the start of the game. It’s at the very beginning, where Tidus first meets Wakka.

Moon Sigil

In order to acquire the Moon Sigil, you have to do a few other sidequests. First, you have to acquire the summons for Yojimbo and Anima. Next, you have to capture every fiend in the Mt. Gagazet region to get an item called the Blossom Crown. Finally, you have to get yourself to Remiem Temple, which is hidden in the Calm Lands, only accessible via chocobo. There, you’ll meet Belgemine and have the opportunity to fight all her aeons. Defeat them all, grab the Magus Sisters summon from inside the temple, defeat Belgemine’s Magus Sisters, and send Belgemine to finish the quest and acquire the Moon Sigil.

Abilities

Like with Tidus’s Caladbolg (and all the Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons), you need to take the ingredients to the celestial orb in Macalania Woods. Once you do that, you’ll end up with the following abilities:

  • Break Damage Limit
  • Triple Overdrive
  • Double AP
  • One MP Cost

Yuna’s ultimate weapon deals more damage when she’s at full MP.

Wakka: World Champion – Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons

The Weapon

I hope you like Blitzball, because this weapon is all about Blitzball. In order to get the unpowered weapon, you have to place at least 3rd in a Blitzball Tournament, then talk to the bartender in Luca after acquiring the celestial mirror.

Jupiter/Mercury Crest

This one’s very easy. It’s in the Luca Blitzball Stadium Locker Room, and you can grab it at any time after you leave following the first Blitzball Tournament. One of the easiest Crests to acquire for any of the Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons.

Jupiter/Mercury Sigil

This one’s going to be a massive grind if you’re not already playing Blitzball. You have to win Blitzball League a bunch of times. Every league there’s roughly a 50% chance for a Wakka Overdrive to appear as a prize. Once you’ve acquired all his Overdrives, the Jupiter/Mercury Sigil will show up as a potential prize, and you can win it there.

Abilities

Once you power up Wakka’s World Champion, you’ll end up with the following abilities:

  • Break Damage Limit
  • Triple Overdrive
  • Double AP
  • Evade & Counter

When it comes to Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons, Wakka’s functions like Tidus’s. It hits at full power when he’s at max HP.

Kimahri: Spirit Lance – Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons

The Weapon

The unpowered Spirit Lance is obtained in the Thunder Plains. First, you need to read the text on Gandof and the Qactuars in the Travel Agency, then you need to interact with the 3 Qactuar Stones found within the plains. A Qactuar appears that guides you to a tower which will then be struck by lightning, revealing the weapon.

Saturn/Jupiter Crest

This Crest is found sitting in a chest in the later parts of Mt. Gagazet, just after where you fought Seymour. You’ll go through an area with several pillars; the Saturn/Jupiter Crest is hidden behind a pillar on the lefthand side.

Saturn/Jupiter Sigil

This one is super annoying. You have to win the butterfly hunt minigame in Macalania Woods in both areas. It’s similar in how tedious and irritating it is to the Chocobo Race, but worse because you end up in random battles when you mess up. You have to catch all the blue butterflies and avoid the red butterflies. Good luck. One of the more irritating requirements for Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons.

Abilities

Once you power up the Spirit Lance, you’ll end up with the following abilities:

  • Break Damage Limit
  • Triple Overdrive
  • Double AP
  • Evade & Counter

Like several other Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons, Spirit Lance does more damage when Kimahri is at Max HP.

Lulu: Onion Knight – Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons

final fantasy x ultimate weapons lulu

The Weapon

You should be able to find this weapon en route to collecting Yuna’s Anima aeon (which is required for Yuna’s ultimate weapon as well). Once you locate Baaj Temple on the map (12, 57), go there and fight the fish monster from the beginning of the game. Onion Knight is located in a chest underwater in the southern part of that area.

Venus/Mars Crest

This is located at the Farplane in Guadosalam. The ideal time to pick it up is after the party learns Seymour has left for Macalania Temple, but before leaving. Otherwise you have to wait until you have the airship to return to Guadosalam which is… not that bad, because you can’t get the Onion Knight before you have the airship anyway.

Venus/Mars Sigil

This one is the worst, and most likely you’re not going to do it. It’s just not worth it. You have to dodge 200 consecutive lightning bolts in the Thunder Plains without leaving the area, which is extraordinarily tedious. Seriously, just make a custom weapon for Lulu with Break Damage Limit if you really want to use her. Can you imagine dodging 199 lightning bolts and then messing up? You’ll pull your hair out. Don’t do it. The only way to win is not to play.

Abilities

If you somehow manage to get that Venus/Mars Sigil and fully power up the Onion Knight, you’ll get the following abilities:

  • Break Damage Limit
  • Triple Overdrive
  • Magic Booster
  • One MP Cost

The weapon does more damage at full MP. But also remember… you can just make a weapon with all of these abilities. It would take a fair amount of grinding, but it’d still be less tedious than the lightning bolt thing.

Auron: Masamune – Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons

final fantasy x ultimate weapons auron

The Weapon

First, you need to acquire the Rusty Sword, which is in the Eastern part of the cliffs outside the Cave of the Stolen Fayth (where Yojimbo is located) in the Calm Lands. Then you need to take that weapon to Mushroom Rock Road, where you can find a statue of Mi’hen by following the route to the Northwest. Placing the Rusty Sword in front of the statue unlocks access to the Masamune nearby.

Mars/Saturn Crest

It’s right nearby where you get the Masamune itself on the Mi’hen Highroad. It’s in the Southeast part of the area.

Mars/Saturn Sigil

You get this from the monster arena by unlocking 10 Area Conquest or Species Conquest monsters. This isn’t too hard, as you’ll be trying to capture every monster for the arena anyway in order to unlock all the special bosses you need for farming materials. You get area conquests by finishing out the list for an area, and species conquests by finishing out the list for a species. It doesn’t take that long. Just be thankful you don’t have to dodge 200 lightning bolts. Among the requirements for all the Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons, Auron’s Masamune is one of the easiest.

Abilities

Once you fully power up the Masamune, you end up with a weapon that has the following abilities:

  • Break Damage Limit
  • Triple Overdrive
  • First Strike
  • Counter-Attack

Masamune actually does less damage at full HP, and the damage increases as Auron’s HP depletes. It’s capable of powering up beyond 100% damage.

Rikku: Godhand – Final Fantasy X Ultimate Weapons

The Weapon

Godhand is probably the easiest of the Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons to acquire and fully power up. All you have to do is type “GODHAND” in as a password on the airship and it’ll unlock a location on the Mushroom Rock Road where you can easily acquire the weapon.

Mercury/Venus Crest

It’s in a treasure chest in a sandpit in the final area of Bikanel Desert. Not difficult to obtain at all.

Mercury/Venus Sigil

After you obtain the airship, go to Bikanel Island. In the final area there’s a stone tablet that begins a game of hide and seek with a bunch of cactuars. Find them, then play a game of red light, green light with them, and once you’ve gotten them all, boom, free Mercury/Venus sigil.

Abilities

Once you’ve fully powered up the Godhand, you end up with the following abilities:

  • Break Damage Limit
  • Triple Overdrive
  • Double AP
  • Gillionaire

Like several other Final Fantasy X ultimate weapons, Rikku’s Godhand deals more damage at full HP.
