Nirvana was one of the most known bands of the grunge era and one of the defining bands, in the public mind, of the "Seattle Sound" of the early 1990s. They were also one of the bands that helped Sub Pop blow-up into a huge (for an indie) label, as they'd released the first few releases. The band ended with the death of Kurt Cobain. His death is surrounded with controversy; while the official cause of death reports that he was killed by a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head, there is a school of thought that he was murdered by his wife, Courtney Love, and it was made to look like suicide. The other members went into other projects, though the most successful was Dave Grohl, who formed Foo Fighters.

Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

The Nirvana as it appears in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2.

Nirvana (ニルヴァナ) is a recurring weapon in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually the most powerful staff in the games it appears in and is mostly used by Summoners or White Mages

Contents

Appearances

Final Fantasy IV

In the GBA version, only Porom can equip the Nirvana, which casts Reflect when used as an item and is found in the Lunar Ruins.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

Nirvana is a weapon that can only be accessed via hacking, and provided 80 Attack as well as several stat boosts. It would have cast Reflect when used as an item, and would have been used by several characters.

Final Fantasy X

The Nirvana is Yuna's Celestial Weapon, and is can be obtained at Monster Arena in the Calm Lands. It requires the Moon Crest and Sigil to attain its maximum power. At maximum power, its abilities are Break Damage Limit, Triple Overdrive, Double AP, and 1 MP cost. It also allows the aeon Valefor to break the 9,999 damage limit once activated. Using the Moon Crest or Moon Sigil raises the damage limit to around 30,000, while using both Key Items will raise the damage limit to 99,999.

Final Fantasy X-2

Yuna wields the Nirvana when she is in her Black Mage Dressphere.

Final Fantasy XI

The Nirvana is the Summoner's Mythic Weapon. It reduces avatar perpetuation cost by four (exceeding even Bahamut's Staff), increases Magical Attack power of avatars by a significant amount, and features the unique "Garland of Bliss" Weapon skill. Because of these factors, and because the comparable Relic Weapon upgrade for Summoners, the Claustrum, is arguably the worst in the game, Nirvana is considered one of the few actually sensible Mythic Weapon upgrades.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

The Nirvana is one of Penelo's strongest staves and can only be crafted in the Sky Saloon.

Final Fantasy XIII

The Nirvana is a model of a rod obtainable by Vanille.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

The Nirvana is a powerful staff that can teach Full-Life to White Mages, Holy to Bishops, and Phoenix to Summoners.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Nirvana reappears and can still teach Full-Life to White Mages, Holy to Bishops, and Phoenix to Summoners.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

The Nirvana is the strongest staff in the game and increases EX Mode duration by 50%.

Etymology

Nirvana is a religious term used to describe the ultimate goal of the Buddhist religion (a similar concept exists in Hindu). It refers to the final level of consciousness denoted by perfect balance, knowledge, and peace which only pure souls with good karma may reach, and it is thus attained via reincarnation.
