From Final Fantasy Wiki

The Gungnir (グングニル Gunguniru) is a weapon that appears in several games of the Final Fantasy series, though sometimes only as the summon Odin's spear and not a weapon that characters can equip and use.

Appearances

Final Fantasy II

The Gungnir is a special weapon for Gordon that can be obtained in the Arcane Sanctuary.

Final Fantasy III

Gungnir is a rare steal and rare drop from Odin in the DS version. Its Attack of 140 is among the best in the game. Only the Dragoon and Onion Knight can wield it.

Final Fantasy IV

Kain wielding the Gungnir in Final Fantasy IV DS.

Kain Highwind returns with the Gungnir equipped after he joins the party after the Battle of the Giant of Babil. It boosts an Attack of 99 and Accuracy of 30, as well as granting +15 to Stamina.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

The Gungnir returns as a powerful spear for Kain, and provides 99 Attack, 30% Accuracy, and +10 Stamina. It is found in the Subterrane after defeating Barbariccia.

Final Fantasy V

The Odin summon will throw the Gungnir if Zantetsuken cannot be used on the enemy. It is called Javelin in the Playstation version.

Final Fantasy VI

The Gungnir is Mog's exclusive weapon that is found in the Dragons' Den. It is only found in the Advance version.

Final Fantasy VII

The Odin Summon will throw the Gunge Lance if the Steel-Bladed Sword cannot be used on the enemy.

Final Fantasy IX

When Odin is summoned without his boost, he will throw Gungnir for high damage.

Final Fantasy X

Any of Kimahri's spears may become the Gungnir when Break Damage Limit is the dominant ability of the weapon.

Final Fantasy XI

The Gungnir is the Relic Weapon Polearm for the Dragoon Job, available only to Level 75 Dragoons after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items). While it is still considered the strongest Polearm in the game and best weapon for the Dragoon class, when shown against the other two-handed melee Job Relic Weapons it is comparably weak. This is due primarily to the hidden effect created by using its unique Weaponskill, Gierskogul, which causes its user to gain the nearly worthless Shock Spikes effect, and the weakness in the design of the Dragoon job itself by the developers. Since the Dragoon class was neglected by the development team for an expansive portion of Final Fantasy XI's existence, the Job remains today relatively weak when compared to the other heavy-combat Jobs, which have far superior Relic Weapons, explaining the lack of Gungnirs owned by players. Notably, this weapon is not the spear used by the form of Odin faced in the difficult Einherjar endgame instanced event, as both the event and Odin himself were introduced into Final Fantasy XI some five years after the Relic Weapons were created. Though what he clearly wields is a much larger, more impressive Polearm than the Relic Weapon, he refers to it in-combat as his "...obsidian blade..." before unleashing his trademark Zantetsuken annihilation move unto players, referencing the sword of the same name (which it clearly is not).

Final Fantasy XII

The Gungnir appears as one of the stronger spears. It can be acquired in the Dalmasca Westersand, as well as several other means, but can only be equipped by characters that have obtained the "Spears 5" license on the License Board. It does Fire-elemental damage.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Llyud's strongest weapon, the Gungnir, is a Fire-elemental weapon.

Gungnir is one of the greatest spears in the game and can only be equipped by the Lilty race. It can be forged for 5,000 gil with the Legendary Weapon Scroll, Alloy, Orihalcum, and an Ancient Potion. Its focus attack is Cross Slash.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time

The Gungnir is a high-ranked spear that provides 133 attack and +25 Stun. It takes 2 slots and cannot be bought.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

The Gungnir the strongest spear in the game and it increases Attack by 68, decreases Defense by 1, and increases Crash Bravery damage by 50%.

Etymology

In Norse mythology, Gungnir was a javelin forged and crafted by dwarves, known as the Sons of Ivaldi, on Loki's request as part of his apology for cutting off the hair of Sif. It was given to Odin and had the uncanny ability of always hitting the target it was thrown at.
