Water symbol

Water is a recurring element in the Final Fantasy. Although was represented early in the series by the fiends Kraken and Cagnazzo, it had few spells and equipment devoted to it. After the appearance of Water in Final Fantasy VIII, it began to take a larger role in subsequent games, and was first introduced as central element in Final Fantasy X. It is often opposite to Lightning, and sometimes strong against Fire.

Equipment

Water has little impact in terms of equipment, but Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings fused the Ice element and Water together, and so many weapons and armor are infused with the Water element in that game. The Coral Sword is sometimes imbued with Water, but in other games it is actually lethal against Water-type monsters.

Spells

Water has only recently attained four tiers of basic spells: Water, Watera, Waterga, and Waterja. Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy XI include the powerful Flood spell. Final Fantasy XII, oddly, only the initial Water spell is available to the party, despite Watera and Waterga being used liberally by enemies, and Waterja being used by Famfrit. This is unbalanced by the fact that there are many enemies weak to this element.

Summons

The summon Leviathan was the only Water-based attacks available to players in early games, attacking with Tsunami. Final Fantasy VI has Bismarck, and prior to the Advance version, it was VI's only water summon. Leviathan is still present in many subsequent games but is notably absent in Final Fantasy X. The Esper Famfrit is the avatar of Water in the world of Ivalice.
