Cúchulainn (Summon): Misc


Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

"Scion created to rid the world of its impurities by swallowing them within himself, in opposition to Nabriales the Majestic, scion of light. The world, however, was more filled with impurity and corruption than even the gods dared imagine, and having swallowed it all, the once beautiful Cúchulainn was transformed into a hideous thing, a deity of filth, and so did he turn against his creators. Wherever his feet should fall, there all life withers to dust."
Clan Primer Bio

Cúchulainn the Impure (不浄王キュクレイン Fujyō Ō Kyukurein, lit. Cúchulainn, King of the Impure), pronounced approximately "Koo-cul-lan", is an Esper from the world of Ivalice. The Esper of Poison, he represents the Zodiac sign of Scorpio, the Scorpion. While normally he doesn't resemble a scorpion, during his ultimate attack, giant claws come out of his back and strike into the ground. His arms also have some resemblance to a scorpion shell. From his power of Poison, his color sign is Brown. He is also referred to as the Vrishchika Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology. He is based on the Lucavi Cúchulainn the Impure from Final Fantasy Tactics.




Final Fantasy XII

For the enemy page, see Cúchulainn (Final Fantasy XII)

Cúchulainn is found in the waterways under Rabanastre, perhaps attracted by the surrounding sewage (or simply the cause of it).



Malaise: A Non-Elemental attack, it functions like Drain.

Blight: A Non-Elemental attack, and Cúchulainn's ultimate attack. Cúchulainn is transported to a forest. He gives a deep belly laugh, then jumps into the air. He quivers for a moment, then a giant red tail (stinger) shoots out of his back and plants itself into the ground, pumping poison into the earth and damaging the enemy.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Main article: Cúchulainn (Revenant Wings)
"The Impure, his touch is poison and death."
—In-game description

Cúchulainn reappears, along with the other Espers, in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. He is the Rank 2 Melee Water summon, unlike the other Espers of Final Fantasy XII who are all Rank 3. As a result, and in contrast with the other Espers, Cúchulainn has a small sprite and more than one can exist in the party at once. There is also no condition to unlocking him, save for reaching his node on the Ring of Pacts.

He uses Malaise and Blight, which Poison enemies.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Cúchulainn appears as a Scion. He can be called by anyone equipping the Tainted Cufflink when the Smash Gauge is orange. He uses Blight to damage and poison all foes.



  • It should also be noted that Cúchulainn is also the name of an Irish mythic hero. The only thing similar between this Esper and the Irish mythical hero is the name's spelling.
