Mythril (ミスリル Misuriru) is a valuable metal found in the Final Fantasy series. It can be crafted into many pieces of equipment, like swords, armor and gauntlets. The name seems to be derived from a metal called Mithril, appearing in J.R.R. Tolkien's fictional universe, featured in "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings". In fact, in Final Fantasy VI, it is called Mithril. It is a possibility that it is intended to be "Mithril" in English, but was changed to "Mythril" after Final Fantasy VI to lessen the chances of a copyright lawsuit from Christopher Tolkien, who is infamously very litigious.
Although the Mythril mineral is of no particular importance, there is a town called Mythril, where they just so happen to sell Mythril equipment.
Mythril items in this game are average as far as stats are concerned.
Mythril is used to make some equipment in Final Fantasy XI. It can be forged into ingots but it is perhaps mostly used for coins in Aht Urhgan. Mythril coins are worth 1/5 of 1 Imperial Gold peice, or about twice what Silver is worth, and therefore ten times what Bronze is worth.
Mythril is a crafting item, bought for 5000 Gil at River Belle Path during the second and third cycles.
Mythril is a material that can be bought for 100 Gil or won from Daedalus'.
Mythril is a trade accessory that can be found in treasure chests during Story mode.
