The Crawler, one of many examples of Machina in Spira.
"Long time ago, there were a whole lot of cities in Spira. Big cities with machina -machines- to run 'em. People played all day and let the machina do the work."
Wakka


Machina is the term used for any kind of powered machines in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. Machina are forbidden by Yevon due to their potentially destructive nature, save for a few exceptions (such as the blitzball sphere pool). The Al Bhed are considered heretics for their rebellion against Yevon's doctrine, as well as their salvage and use of ancient machina.

1000 years before the beginning of the game, machina were in common use. When war broke out between Bevelle and Zanarkand, Bevelle using mainly machina to fight while Zanarkand depended upon its summoners, Zanarkand was left devastated. Yu Yevon, the leader of Zanarkand, created Sin in revenge. Yu Yevon's daughter, Yunalesca, agreed to give Bevelle a method to temporarily get rid of Sin in return for her father's undying fame as well as the forbidding of all destructive machina.

By Final Fantasy X-2, machina have come into wider use due to the fall of Yevon as the main political force, although there are still those who are uncomfortable with their use, as a result, newly built machina are branded Machines instead.

Some of the more known machina seen in the games are:

Etymology

The word "machina" in general usage is merely the Latin and Turkish word for "machine". In the English localization, machina is always pronounced [ˈmɑː.ki.nə] (maw-key-nah).

The Machinas, known as Machiners in the OCG, monsters are an Archetype of EARTH Attribute Machine-Type cards that made their debut in Japanese Premium Pack 9. Currently, they have not been printed in English, though a new Structure Deck will be released this December with more support. The only appearance they make in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime is in episode 11. They are also used by Kirk, one of Yakou Tenma's card professors in Yu-Gi-Oh! R.

The cards in the Archetype are their support cards Commander Covington, Machina Soldier, Machina Sniper, Machina Defender, Machina Force, Machina Fortress, Machina Gearframe, and Machina Peacekeeper.

The Archetype involves getting the three Machina monsters onto your field and using Commander Covington's effect to Special Summon Machina Force.

All of the Machina cards will finally be released into the TCG in the Structure Deck: Machina Mayhem coming out in February.
