Lion Heart in Final Fantasy VIII.

The Lion Heart (ライオンハート, Raionhāto) is Squall Leonhart's ultimate gunblade from Final Fantasy VIII. As with all gunblade models other than Revolver, it is never seen in any of the game's FMVs. It stands out due to its bright blue blade and ornately shaped handle. By mugging or defeating certain monsters at certain levels and exploiting the card conversion ability, it is possible to obtain the Lion Heart on the first disc of the game. This weapon loosely resembles the recuring ultimate weapon, Ultima Weapon, having a blue blade.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

In Dissidia Final Fantasy, Squall Leonhart wields the Lion Heart in his EX Mode. The Lion Heart causes the trigger function to activate when Squall attacks with his melee strikes, doubling the number of hits, and also boosts the range of his attacks.

The Lionheart also appears as Squall's Level 100 exclusive weapon. To obtain it, the player must trade in the Punishment weapon (another of Squall's exclusive weapons), along with five "Unshelled Bullets" and five "Bless Orbs". The Lion Heart increases Attack by 68, increases EX Force absorption amount by 30% and gives Squall the Sneak Attack ability.

Non-Final Fantasy Appearances

Kingdom Hearts series

The Lionheart from the original Kingdom Hearts.

A Keyblade named after the Lionheart can be obtained by defeating Cloud and Leon in the Hades Cup in Kingdom Hearts. It has high attack power, increases Sora's max MP, and increases his magic and summoning powers.

The Sleeping Lion, as seen in Kingdom Hearts II.

A similar weapon called the Sleeping Lion can be acquired in Kingdom Hearts II from Leon in Hollow Bastion partway through the game. It has decent attack strength and magical abilities, and increases the amount of strikes Sora can deliver in a combo.

Both the Sleeping Lion and the Lion Heart, despite their names, look more like the Revolver and not the Lionheart, and use Squall's Griever emblem as the basis for their designs. The Sleeping Lion in particular has a bladed edge along its length unlike the majority of Keyblades, and a gun barrel set into the handle, making it appear very similar to the Revolver.

When fought in the Arena, Squall will occasionally power up his gunblade, turning the blade blue. This make it look a lot like the Lion Heart.


  • The Lion Heart is included in the Play Arts Arms set along with four other ultimate weapons. However its blade is not blue like in its other appearances, instead the blade is metallic-gray like the Revolver.
