The Warrior Monks are an army of Yevon and often serve as bodyguards for the Maesters of Yevon. Their leader was Wen Kinoc.



The history of the Warrior Monks date back at least 1,000 years prior to the events of Final Fantasy X. In the Machina War, the Warrior Monks were under the control of Bevelle and were used to fight Zanarkand. Many monks died during Sin's destruction of Zanarkand, and many monks still dwell there as Unsent.

When Sin was defeated for good by Yuna and her guardians, Yevon folded, and the Warrior Monks began to serve the New Yevon organization.


The warrior monks' appearance has not changed much since the Machina War. There appears to be two classes of monk. One class wears a green uniform with armor and another class wears a red, orange, and yellow uniform. The Warrior Monks' weaponry - a rifle and a flamethrower - also has not changed since the Machina War, which is notable considering that such weapons are forbidden by Yevon.

Notable Warrior Monks

Both Auron and Wen Kinoc were once Warrior Monks in their youth. While Kinoc steadily raised up the ranks to eventually become Maester, Auron was thrown out after refusing to marry the priest's daughter. He then went on to become one of Braska's guardians and defeated Sin.

Two types of Warrior Monks are fought in Bevelle; one wielding a rifle, and the other a flamethrower. Warrior Monks can be fought later in the game with rifles and flamethrowers again, however the Fallen Monks of Zanarkand Ruins are undead.


It would seem that the Warrior Monks In game during battle only fire with single shot rifles at the party members, but in the cutscenes, they are shown with the same rifles that shoot automatic rounds. one explanation is that the weapons have selective firing modes, as they are in real life.
