Final Fantasy 10’s Strongest Aeons

Final Fantasy 10 is a game that served as an important precedent for many games that followed it. From the graphics ahead of their time to an engaging story and beautiful music, this installment in Square Enix’s long-running series is a masterpiece.

One of the coolest aspects of the game is summoning – known as Aeons – a core feature of the Final Fantasy universe. Making a spiritual pact with these beings allows Yuna to summon them to the battlefield, to aid her and her Guardians. Let us now examine which aeons are the strongest!

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

8 Valefor

This fayth is the first that Yuna receives and can be found in Besaid Temple. She was a little girl in life. His aeon has high evasion and speed, but low attack power, and is statistically the weakest of all aeons. She also lacks the piercing ability for her skills. She deals non-elemental damage and can delay enemy towers with her special attack, Sonic Wings.

She has her advantages as a flying aeon though, as some enemies can’t hit her at all. She can even delay enemy attacks to the point where they are unable to fully act. She’s the only Aeon in the game to have two Overdrives – her main one, Energy Ray, and one you can get later, Energy Blast. Both deal damage to all enemies. It’s a good beginner, but much more powerful others await you.

seven Yojimbo

In life, this Aeon was a crusader, alongside his faithful dog Daigoro. It was originally located in a temple in Yevon, but was stolen by some Al Bhed to prevent the summoners’ pilgrimage. Now calling the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth home, Yojimbo is an optional Aeon who will aid summoners – for a price. For at least 200,000 gil – maybe a little less if you manage to bargain with him – you will receive his blessing.

In the theory, Yojimbo could to be the strongest aeon in all of Final Fantasy – if he was reliable. You have to constantly buy his services, based on a complex formula that calculates his motivation and the likelihood of him performing one of his four special attacks – Daigoro, Kozuka, Wakizashi, and Zanmato. He may never perform the coveted Zanmato, an ability that can usually instantly kill any enemy, including bosses and superbosses – and let’s be honest, no one has time for that. Ultimately, his stats are poor, he can’t learn additional abilities with the summoner’s soul, and is only a necessary acquisition to gain stronger and more powerful abilities. reliable eternities.


6 shivaFinal Fantasy X Shiva, with sprite, fayth statue, summoning glyph and symbol, and in-game model

A base summon in Final Fantasy, this Ice Queen is the fourth Aeon that Yuna learns to summon and can be obtained from the Temple of Macalania. Once a priestess in life, as a devotee she has high evasion and speed. His special attack, Heavenly Strike, calls down a huge chunk of ice to crash down on a target, inflicting Threaten. Her signature ultimate, Diamond Dust, freezes the entire battlefield, and with a graceful snap of her fingers, the ice shatters and deals Ice damage to all enemies.

As an elemental being, Shiva can heal himself with his own dark magic and receive healing from any iteration of the Blizzard spell. As beautiful as she is, there are still aeons stronger than her, as ice magic can have its niche uses and her physical attacks aren’t particularly strong against tougher foes. She could also be considered a glass cannon, as there are other aeons with higher HP than her.


5 IfritFinal Fantasy X Ifrit, with his in-game photo, fayth statue, summoning glyph and symbol, and model/sprite

The second of the Aeons that Yuna comes to commune with, Ifrit is another basic summon found in many Final Fantasy titles. Before becoming a devotee at Kilika Temple, he was a crusader who decided to leave the mortal realm and join the eternal battle against sin. His special attack, Meteor Strike, is a non-elemental attack that can bypass the Protect buff.

His Overdrive, Hellfire, unleashes an onslaught of flames on any target unlucky enough to incur his wrath. Additionally, like any elemental being, he can receive healing from any iteration of the Fire spell, which is especially useful when casting his dark magic on himself. While he can take hits with his high defense stat, there are still fiercer eternities in the game.


4 IxionFinal Fantasy X Ixion, with her in-game photo, Fayth statue, summon glyph and symbol, and model/sprite

Housed in the Temple of Djose, Ixion was a sailor when he paraded Spira in his mortal flesh, before being reborn as an incarnate lightning worshiper. Making a shocking appearance as a majestic unicorn with a massive horn, her Aerospark special attack deals damage and clears most buffs. His ultimate, Thor’s Hammer, deals a maelstrom of lightning damage to any enemies crazed enough to jump your party.

Possessing high magic and magic defense stats, he can heal and heal himself with any version of the Lightning spell. Only the third aeon obtainable in the game, some apparently forget it. Ixion also has pretty good attack and evade stats, making it a decent summon, but it still doesn’t hold a candle to stronger Secret Aeons.


3 BahamutFinal Fantasy X Bahamut, with his in-game photo, fayth statue, summon glyph and symbol, and model/sprite

Another beloved summon found throughout the Final Fantasy series, the mighty Aeon of Bahamut comes from the faith of a little boy who resides in the Temple of Bevelle. He is an emissary of the collective faith and wants Tidus and Yuna to find a way to end their dreams. As the fifth aeon obtainable throughout the story, Bahamut is definitely one of the strongest for several reasons.

Although slow, his special attack, Impulse, and his Overdrive, Mega Flare, are two very powerful abilities that can innately break the damage cap. Unlike him, all of the other Aeons need the help of Celestial-Enhanced Weapons from Yuna’s Guardians to do so. Although he is not an elemental being, he can learn any version of the Cure spell with the summoner’s soul, and he knows advanced versions of all dark magic when you obtain it.


2 AnimaFinal Fantasy X Anima, with his in-game photo, fayth stature, summon glyph and symbol, and model/sprite

A secret aeon of vast and deadly power located in the Baaj Temple, Anima requires a lot of prior work to obtain. Some would say it’s a daunting task, but in the end, it’s definitely worth it. She was Seymour’s mother in life, but asked Lady Yunalesca to turn her into a devotee who could make Seymour a powerful summoner. This turned him into a power-hungry antagonist. Seeking to atone for her grave miscalculation, Anima helps Yuna on her journey to defeat Sin and her beloved son.

Anima’s special attack, Pain, instantly kills any target that is not immune to death. For those who are immune, the move deals massive damage instead. His Overdrive, Oblivion, sends your enemies into an alternate world, where his Aeon’s underside will deal 16 punches of devastating damage before a final burst of raw power. Anima is indeed a formidable aeon, but only one, or rather three, summons eclipses it.


1 The Magi SistersFinal Fantasy X The Magus Sisters with their in-game portraits, summoning glyphs and symbols, and in-game models

This three-for-one special is found in the Temple of Remiem and is an aeon set made up of the souls of three women. They can only be acquired by obtaining all of the other Aeons in the game, both the story and the secret, and then defeating the versions of Lady Belgemine. While you can only give the sisters suggestions – because they will eventually do what they want – whatever they decide to do will be powerful. Just be careful when they take a break.

Sandy’s Razzia, Mindy’s Passado, and Cindy’s Camisade all deal immense damage. When they combine their strength in their Overdrive, Delta Attack, they can deal over half a million HP in damage. Although they may be a bit lazy in their actions, they are definitely more reliable than Yojimbo, and there are three of them! Additionally, they have a lot of starting health (usually dependent on Yuna’s stats) and know powerful spells. What more could you want?
