The Magus Sisters (メーガス三姉妹 Mēgasu San Shimai lit. The Three Magus Sisters) are recurring characters in the Final Fantasy series, who always appear as a group of three. They are named Sandy (ドグ Dogu) the tallest and middle sister, Cindy(マグ Magu) the fat and oldest sister, and Mindy (ラグ Ragu) the smallest and youngest sister. They are commonly associated with the Delta Attack ability.
They first appeared as a boss in Final Fantasy IV at the top of the Tower of Zot, where they were minions to Barbariccia of the Air, one of Golbez's Archfiends. They would attack using their Delta Attack, in which Sandy would cast Reflect on Cindy, and Mindy would use a level two elemental spell or Bio on Cindy, reflecting it back on to Cecil's party. Cindy also had the power to revive her allies if they died.
All three of them reappear from the preceding game as bosses once again, and are fought in the Subterrane. They fight in the exact same way as in the previous game, and can be dealt with in the same manner as well.
The statue in Alexandria bears a striking resemblance to the Magus sisters, one figure being short, one being tall and slender, and the last being bulky. A plaque by the statue tells of three Knights of Pluto who fought bravely in the 15th Lindblum War in 1601.
The Magus Sisters make an appearance in Final Fantasy X as an extra Aeon that is found in Remiem Temple. They resemble their incarnations from Final Fantasy IV, but they wear insectoid armor, with Sandy being modeled after a Praying Mantis, Cindy, a Ladybeetle, and Mindy, a Bee. To obtain them, the player must first obtain the Flower Sceptre and the Blossom Crown and use them to open the back door of the Temple, where the sisters rest. Unlike most Aeons, they attack as three separate players. Their specific commands cannot be controlled, Yuna can only suggest actions for them to take by shouting "Attack!", "Defense!", "Help Each Other!", "Go, Go, Go!" etc, however the resulting effect under each heading is random. This is compensated somewhat by the fact that the Magus Sisters are all extremely powerful and can break the 9,999 damage limit right from the start.
Also, When Tidus' party re-visit Magus Sisters' Fayth chamber the second time, Magus Sisters will appear before them. Here, in contrast to their Aeon appearance, they are shown to be roughly the same height and body type.
Sandy's special attack is called Razzia, Cindy's is called Camisade, and Mindy's is called Passado, which does fifteen consecutive weak attacks. Their Overdrive is Delta Attack, and is only used when all three of their gauges fill up. In the PAL and International versions of the game, Delta Attack hits six times and the total damage is equal to the single hit in the original version.
Also in the International and PAL versions of the game, once Yuna and her Guardians escape Bevelle, the Dark Sisters will be hanging around Mushroom Rock Road and won't hesitate to attack if you get too close.
The Shikaree Sisters are largely a reference to, if not a direct appearance of, the Magus Sisters, as hinted by Square Enix. Simply referred to as Shikaree X, Shikaree Y, and Shikaree Z, they wield the sisters respective weapons (scythe, daggers, polearm) and have their own Final Fantasy XI version of a delta attack in the form of skill chaining.
The Magus Sisters appear as Liliths in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. They are fought in "Mission #077: Free Baguba!" In this mission, they are known as Naga and each know only one of the three abilities the Lilith can use (Cindy only uses Poison Frog, Sandy only uses Twister, and Mindy only uses Kiss). When they are all defeated, Mindy will say she should have used her special attack, a reference to the Magus Sisters' Delta Attack.
The Magus Sisters appear as a summon in Dissidia Final Fantasy. When summoned, they allow the summoner to decrease the opponent's Brave Points by half and Reduce the Enemy's Base Brave by Half for a certain period of time. Their Auto version appears after the summoner's opponent deals a Brave break on the summoner, and shows an artwork of their Final Fantasy X artwork, while their normal version shows their Final Fantasy IV artwork. The Magus Sisters' auto version can be obtained in the third stage of the Destiny Odyssey X storyline, and its manual version can be obtained in the second stage of the Destiny Odyssey X storyline.
The Magus Sisters appear as a chance card in Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy in Itadaki Street Portable.
