Valigarmanda (ヴァリガルマンダ Varigarumanda), also known as Tritoch, is a recurring summon in the Final Fantasy series. It is typically depicted as birdlike and is able to use or contribute Fire, Ice, and Thunder elements.




Final Fantasy VI

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

In the beginning of the game Final Fantasy VI, Valigarmanda (called Tritoch in the SNES translation) is discovered encased in ice by miners in Narshe. The Gestahlian Empire eventually finds out about its existence, and sends Terra, Biggs and Wedge to investigate. Narshe has proclaimed itself neutral in the ongoing conflict between the Empire and the Returners; in this case, they attempt to defend the Esper against the Empire when they come to take it. Valigarmanda itself defeats Biggs and Wedge, and communicates with Terra, releasing her from Imperial control.

Later in the story, after all members of the party have made their way to Narshe, Banon, the leader of the Returners, offers the organization's help in protecting the Esper; however, the Elder refuses because of the city's declared neutrality. The Empire invades Narshe anyway, and the Returners help to defend it and the Esper. After Kefka Palazzo is turned back by the Returners, Valigarmanda reacts with Terra a second time, causing her to transform into an Esper and flee.

As a Boss

In the World of Ruin, approaching Valigarmanda causes it to react violently and attack the party. If it is defeated, it will thank the party for freeing it and offer itself up as Magicite. Valigarmanda can then be used as an Esper.

Valigarmanda as an Esper

Valigarmanda is summoned into battle.

Valigarmanda's attack is called Tri-Disaster (Tri-Dazer in the original SNES version), which is a Fire/Ice/Lightning three-way elemental attack against all opponents. Its Spell Power is 110 and it is unblockable. It costs 68 MP. Valigarmanda's main function is to teach the upper-level elemental attack spells:

  • Firaga X1 (Fire3 in original SNES version)
  • Blizzaga X1 (Ice3 in original SNES version)
  • Thundaga X1 (Bolt3 in original SNES version)

At level up, it provides a +2 boost to Magic Power.

Final Fantasy: Unlimited After

Valigarmanda is also one of Kaze's summons in the sequel of Final Fantasy: Unlimited called Final Fantasy: Unlimited After, and is named Tri-Disaster. The Soil Charge Triad that are needed to summon Tri-Disaster are:

  • Burning all to ashes, Fire Red!
  • The one that freezes everything, Ice Blue!
  • The brilliance that pierces the darkness, Lightning Yellow!

Followed by saying: "Howl! I summon you, TRI-DISASTER!"
