Ixion (イクシオン Ikushion) is a summon from the later games in the Final Fantasy series. Replacing Ramuh as Spira's lightning summon and appearing for the first time in Final Fantasy X, Ixion is always horse-like in his appearances.
Ixion is the Lightning-elemental Aeon obtained at the temple in Djose in Final Fantasy X. Resembling a Unicorn, his high defense and magic defense attributes will tend to be quite useful in boss battles. He can exceed maximum damage when Kimahri upgrades his Celestial Weapon, the Spirit Lance.
Following the escape from Bevelle, Dark Ixion can be encountered in the Thunder Plains, reveling in the constant lightning. He must be fought twice in succession to be defeated, however the party can exit the Plains and leave the second fight for a later time if they wish.
Ixion's special move is Aerospark, where it will fire razor-sharp discs that collide with a single enemy, causing non-elemental damage. The attack also negates certain special magical effects such as Protect, Shell, Reflect, and Haste.
Its Overdrive is Thor's Hammer, where Ixion will charge electrical energy on the tip of his horn and shoot it toward the enemy, causing them to be lifted into the air. While still connected by an electrical current, Ixion will then send a blast of electricity through it to the enemy, causing electrical damage.
Ixion is the rank 2 Lightning Physical summon in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. His only attack is Hoof Kick.
In the anime, Final Fantasy: Unlimited, Ixion makes an appearance as a summon. The Soil Charge Triad (Soil is like the colored bullet of a Magun, used to summon creatures) needed to summon Ixion is:
Followed by saying: "Cry! Summoned creature! Ixion!"
In the English audio version, the Soil Charge Triad was changed to:
Followed by saying: "Howl! I summon you! Ixion!"
In "Moogle: Nostalgic Memories," Kaze summoned forth a "zero style" version of Ixion with the aid of Moogle Kupo. As with all such upgraded summons, the Soil Charge remained the same.
