The Celestial Weapons are the ultimate weapons in Final Fantasy X. When they are acquired, they are weakened versions of what they can be, and come equipped with the ability "No AP," so the character cannot receive any experience after battle with their celestial weapon. When upgraded, all Celestial Weapons receive Break Damage Limit, which allows the user to deal more than 9999 HP damage, and Triple Overdrive, which allows characters to increase the rate at which their Overdrive gauge fills. Each weapon also contains two additional abilities and ignores defense.
Without the Celestial Mirror, characters cannot obtain their celestial weapon. In order to obtain it, the player must first learn how to ride a Chocobo in the Calm Lands, and take it to Remiem Temple and race it against the Chocobo there. If the player wins, he or she obtains the Cloudy Mirror. Returning to Macalania Woods, Tidus will meet a woman who claims that that her husband is missing. When you have found the man (he can be found at the Campsite) talk to him, and choose "They were waiting over there", their little boy now disappears! He is found on new passage along the crystal walkway. Following the passage leads to an altar, where the family is reunited. Upon examining the altar, the Cloudy Mirror transforms into the Celestial Mirror.
In order to upgrade the weapons, players must have the Celestial Mirror, the weapon, a special "Crest" and a special "Sigil". Once all of these are found, players can take the weapons to the altar at which the Celestial Mirror was found, and offer the Crest and Sigil to upgrade the weapons. The Crest is usually easy to find, but the Sigil can be difficult to get or requires a long sidequest. It is possible to only partially upgrade a weapon by using only the Crest, but as one might guess, this only unlocks half of the weapon's true potential, but it will allow an Aeon to break the 9999 damage limit.
Named after the mythical sword belonging to Fergus mac Róich of Irish mythology, it is said to have the power to slice the tops off of hills. After obtaining the Celestial Mirror, players can return to the Calm Lands and race on a Chocobo again. If the player successfully wins the race, the man guarding a hidden passage in the canyon at the northwest end of the Calm Lands will move out of the way, allowing Tidus to obtain this weapon.
In the Japanese, Spanish and Italian versions, this weapon was called Ultima Weapon, as is tradition with the main character's ultimate weapon, but it was changed in the English translation.
The Sun Crest is found in Yunalesca's room in Zanarkand after defeating her. If not obtained the first time, the player must defeat the Dark Bahamut to get it (Dark Bahamut is only in the PAL and International versions).
The party must walk down the steps past where they fought her. They will be teleported back to the other stairs. A chest appears in the corner by the back of the room containing the crest.
The Sun Sigil is obtained by winning the Chocobo Race in the Calm Lands with a time of under 0:00 minutes. Players must grab as many balloons as they can while not being hit by a bird. Being hit by a bird penalizes their overall time by increasing it, and hitting a balloon reduces their overall time. If enough balloons are obtained then it is possible to get hit by a bird and still have an overall time of under 0:00 minutes. If the player manages a perfect time on the first try, this means that it must be done twice to get the sigil, but this is only true for certain versions.
The Caladbolg also deals more damage the closer Tidus is to his max HP, in true Ultima Weapon tradition.
The World Champion is obtained by traveling to Luca, entering the Luca Cafe and talking to the bartender. She will refuse to hand over the World Champion unless you have placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the League or Tournament. Another way to obtain world champion is to have over 100 Blitzball game wins. If she doesn't refuse, she will ask Tidus if she can see the Celestial Mirror. After she talks for a bit, Wakka will obtain the World Champion.
The World Champion makes a cameo in Final Fantasy X-2, during the final battle against Shuyin, whose attacks are actually his versions of Tidus' Overdrives. Thus the blitzball Shuyin kicks every time he uses Terror of Zanarkand, his version of Blitz Ace, is the World Champion.
In Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Tidus's Level 100 exclusive weapon is named World Champion.
This weapon is named after the Onion Knight from Final Fantasy III. To obtain it, the player must travel to Baaj Temple and dive into the water. By swimming towards the doors to the north, a fight against Geosgaeno, the giant monster seen at the beginning of the game, will ensue. After defeating it, the player is free to search the areas. The weapon will be located in the southern part of the circular underwater area in a treasure chest.
The sprite for the original Final Fantasy III Onion Knight is seen on the shield.
To obtain the Nirvana, the player must successfully capture all 9 different types of fiends found in the Calm Lands area and then talk to the owner of the Monster Arena. He will then make a chest appear, containing Nirvana. However, you cannot open the chest until you have the Celestial Mirror.
The Moon Crest is found in an alcove on a beach in Besaid. This will be hidden from the camera and will remain so until the player actually swims close enough to it. Get in the water and swim along the shore to the east (this includes off-camera) until the camera changes its angle. You can actually recieve this item as Tidus before swimming to the shore to meet Wakka at the beginning of the game. Upgrading with the Moon Crest will allow Valefor to break the 9999 damage limit.
To obtain the Moon Sigil, players must travel to the Calm Lands and head for Remiem Temple. Once inside, the player must defeat all of Belgemine's summons, one at a time. At this time, the player should have seven Aeons (five storyline aeons as well as Yojimbo and Anima) as well as the Blossom Crown, which is obtained by catching all the fiends on Mt. Gagazet and talking to the Monster Arena Owner. When Belgemine's Bahamut has been defeated, she will give the player the Flower Scepter. Use this, along with the Blossom Crown, on the door behind Belgemine to obtain the Magus Sisters. Belgemine will now have unlocked all Aeons to be challenged, as she only unlocks Aeons Yuna herself is able to summon. After defeating all of Belgemine's Aeons, she will hand over the Moon Sigil.
The Nirvana deals more damage the closer Yuna is to her max MP.
Yuna's Black Mage Dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2 wields the Nirvana.
The Spirit Lance is known as the Longinus (the name of the Roman soldier, who in Christian lore pierced the side of Jesus Christ with his spear) in the Japanese and European version. The Spirit Lance is obtained by activating any three Qactuar Stones in the Thunder Plains and then finding the "Qactuar spirit" somewhere in the Thunder Plains. The player must follow it to a broken tower, and the press the square button to send a bolt of lightning through it, revealing the location of the weapon.
To obtain the Saturn Sigil, the player must successfully complete the Butterfly Hunt minigame twice in Macalania Woods after obtaining the Airship. The challenge consists of catching all the blue butterflies in the forest, within an allotted time, without touching the red ones.
The statue of Kimahri that the Ronso craft in honor of him in Chapter 5 of Final Fantasy X-2 (if the right conditions are met) depicts him wielding the Spirit Lance.
To acquire the Masamune, the player must first obtain the Rusty Sword, which is found on the eastern cliff outside of the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth (where Yojimbo's fayth is located) in the Calm Lands. Bring the Rusty Sword to the statue of Lord Mi'ihen on the Mushroom Rock Road. Placing the sword before the statue will reveal a glyph, which in turn reveals the location of the Masamune.
The Mars Sigil is obtained from the owner of the Monster Arena. The player must unlock a total of 10 Area Conquest or Species Conquest monsters. Catching at least one of each type of fiend in an area unlocks an Area Conquest. Catching all the fiends of a particular species unlocks a Species Conquest.
The Masamune also deals more damage the lower Auron's HP is, similar to Locke's Valiant Knife.
Rikku's Dark Knight dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2 wields the Masamune, as a tribute to Auron. It should also be noted that this Masamune blade has Odin's face melded into the design.
The Godhand is obtained by typing "GODHAND" as a password on the Airship and going to the new location. The Celestial Mirror must be used on the symbol in the rock face.
The Mercury Crest is found in a treasure chest in a shifting sand pit in Bikanel Island.
Note: You do not have to fight a fiend to get the item.
To obtain the Mercury Sigil, the player must complete the Cactuar side quest in the Sanubia Desert.
