The Ragnarok as seen in Final Fantasy VII.

The Ragnarok (ラグナロク Ragunaroku) is a weapon that appears in various games in the series. It is usually one of the most powerful swords.




Final Fantasy

The Ragnarok only appears in the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes of the original Final Fantasy. It is the strongest weapon in the game next to the Barbarian Sword, but it can only be obtained after defeating the superboss Shinryu in the Lifespring Grotto.

Final Fantasy II

The Ragnarok is obtainable in the Arcane Sanctuary, found only in the PSP Anniversary Edition. It is the strongest sword in the game (unless your stats are maxed out, in which case it's a little better than mediocre, due to it's real usefulness coming from the 99% Strength bonus), but it can only be equipped by Firion.

Final Fantasy III

The Ragnarok is one of the most powerful weapons in the game. It is found in Eureka and is protected by Guardian. It can be equipped by Knights, Dark Knights, and Ninjas.

Final Fantasy IV

The Ragnarok is Cecil's ultimate weapon. It was originally known to players as the Crystal Sword in the SNES version, and is obtained in the Lunar Subterrane by defeating Dark Bahamut. In the Advance remake, he gets much better swords including the Lightbringer. In the DS remake it is weaker than its original counterpart by 50 attack points making it less useful in the final dungeon which features enemies with a resistance to holy damage.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

The Ragnarok is found in a chest in the Depths of the True Moon, which is guarded by Lord Dragon (otherwise known as Shinryu). It can used by others than just Cecil, such as Kain or Ceodore. The Ragnarok's stats are similar to its original appearance.

Final Fantasy V

The Ragnarok is the ultimate sword in the original release of the game. It is obtained by defeating Shinryu in the Interdimensional Rift. It can also be stolen from one of the sections of the final boss. However, in the Advance remake, the Ultima Weapon, obtained by defeating Neo Shinryu, is far stronger. Added to that, the Chicken Knife can potentially become more powerful than the Ragnarok if the wielder runs away roughly 120 times while equpping it.

Final Fantasy VI

The Ragnarok is one of the most powerful swords in this game. It is obtained by going to the Weapon Shop in Narshe in the World of Ruin, and having Locke pick the lock to enter. The Weapon Shop owner is hiding in the back room, and shows the party a stone, which is actually the Esper, Ragnarok. He offers to refine the Magicite and turn it into a sword, or leave it as the Magicite. Turning it into the sword, however, will make it more difficult to learn Ultima, the most powerful spell in the game, requiring purification of the cursed shield. Betting the Ragnarok in the Colosseum gives the Lightbringer as a reward.

The sword has 255 Battle Power and will consume 10 MP each turn to perform an automatic critical hit. It will randomly cast the Flare spell in addition to its attack. The sword can be used by Terra, Locke, Edgar, and Celes. In the Advance version, it is possible to get multiple Ragnaroks by stealing from Lady, and also it is a rare drop from a boss monster in Zozo.

Final Fantasy VII

The Ragnarok is a sword that Cloud can equip. It is obtained by defeating the Proud Clod in Midgar and is Cloud's second strongest weapon, bested only by the Ultima Weapon.

Final Fantasy IX

Ragnarok in Final Fantasy IX

The Ragnarok is a sword that Steiner can equip. The sword is found in a Chocograph. It teaches Thunder Slash and Shock. Aside from Excalibur II it is Steiner's most powerful sword.

Final Fantasy X

The Ragnarok is a sword that can be created by adding Triple AP, Triple Overdrive, and Overdrive AP to one of Tidus' swords. The sword will be called Ragnarok, unless Break Damage Limit is added as well.

Final Fantasy XI

The Ragnarok is a Relic Weapon available to the Warrior, Paladin, and Dark Knight Job classes, though Dark Knight is the only job that actively uses this type of weapon in the endgame. To obtain and wield the Great Sword, a player must have one of these three jobs at Level 75, and have completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of Gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items). It is widely recognized amongst the endgame community (as well as the Great Sword weapon type as a whole) as one of the game developers' most immense blunders, as its base damage statistic is remarkably low (compared to its greatest benefactor's other main weapon - the Dark Knight's Scythes), its lower-than-optimal weapon type compatability with its job selection, its poor hidden effects upon using its unique Weaponskill Scourge, and its more recently being outclassed/outperformed by the extremely simpler-to-obtain Naglering Great Sword. For these reasons, among others, those who wish to obtain the Ragnarok do so as a trophy item rather than a viable weapon choice for killing powerful foes. One of the greatest errors in developmental damage calculations made in 2004 that have still yet to be amended.

Ragnarok in Final Fantasy XII.
