Celestial Weapon: Misc


Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

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.


The Cloudy Mirror and the Celestial Mirror

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.

The Weapons

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.



Tidus' Caladbolg


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.

Sun Crest

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.

Sun Sigil

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.

Fully upgraded abilities

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

Other information

The Caladbolg also deals more damage the closer Tidus is to his max HP, in true Ultima Weapon tradition.

Yuna's Dark Knight Dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2 wields the Caladbolg, as one of her tributes to Tidus.

Tidus' EX Mode in Dissidia Final Fantasy equips the Caladbolg mid-battle, replacing the Brotherhood.


Wakka's World champion

World Champion

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.

Jupiter Crest

The Jupiter Crest is found in a locker in the Besaid Aurochs' room in Luca. Upgrading with the Jupiter Crest will allow Ifrit to break the 9999 damage limit.

Jupiter Sigil

In order to win the Jupiter Sigil, the player must win a Blitzball league after obtaining all four of Wakka's Overdrives.

Fully upgraded abilities

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

Other information

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.


Lulu's Onion Knight

Onion Knight

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.

The weapon will be located in the southern part of the circular underwater area in a treasure chest.

Moon Crest

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.

Moon Sigil

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.
