Necron in the final battle, reigning over the Hill of Despair
"You stand before the final dimension, and I am the darkness of eternity..."

Necron (永遠の闇, Eien No Yami, lit. Darkness of Eternity, French: Darkness, Italian: Trivia, Spanish: Tiniebla Eterna (Eternal Darkness), German: Ewiges Dunkel (Eternal Darkness)), is the Final Boss of Final Fantasy IX. He appears in the area Hill of Despair, after Zidane and his party battle Trance Kuja, and represents death itself. Necron's ultimate goal is to reduce everything to nothingness. His appearance in the game is somewhat of a mystery, as he arrives unexpectedly and his character is never fully explained, much to the vexation of fans of the game.

When Zidane awakens on the Hill of Despair, he is greeted by Necron's ominous voice emanating from rays of light above the Hill. The entity announces that by observing the murderous actions of Kuja, it has come to conclusion that all life exists merely to seek death. Necron then resolves to destroy the Crystal, and thus revert everything to a "Zero World" of perpetual nothingness. He then teleports the heroes to a coliseum-like structure and engages them in battle. Though Necron utilizes a plethora of destructive magics, he is ultimately defeated. Kuja uses the last of his powers to teleport Zidane and his friends back to the Iifa Tree, and as Necron dissipates, alone in his Zero World, he pledges that he will always exist, as long as there is life and death.

In Final Fantasy 20th Anniversary Ultimania - File 1: Character Book, Necron is described as, "a being awakened by Kuja's fear, despair, and hatred, which called out to it as he learned of his mortality, just as his ambitions were within reach."

Yoda's famous quote, echoed by Necron.
  • Some fans noted that his design is similar to the enemy Necrophobe from Final Fantasy V.
  • In the English version of the game, Necron quotes a passage from a speech made by the character Yoda from the Star Wars franchise; "Fear leads to anger... anger leads to hate... hate leads to suffering...".
  • Necron shares a few similarities with Exdeath, both being related to trees in someway and both wanting to revert everything to nothingness. Both are the same shade of blue and they also share an attack name, Grand Cross.


"Necron" is related to the Greek word νεκρός (nekrós) which simply means "dead". νεκρόν (Necron with the intonation at the "o") is the neutral form of the adjective, possibly meaning that Necron is neither male or female.
