The Whisperweed (ささやく雑草 Sasayaku Zassou) is a recurring key item in the Final Fantasy series. It has the propriety of transmitting sounds to an equal over large distances.




Final Fantasy IV

Also known as the Twin Harp, the Whisperweed is given to Cecil Harvey by Edward at Troia Castle when the party finds Edward sick in one of the rooms. When trying to save the Earth crystal from the Dark Elf, he puts up a magnetic field so that swords and other metal weapons can't be used. When the party finally meets the Dark Elf he easily eliminates the party, but the power of the Whisperweed sends music from Edward's Harp that he's playing to the Whisperweed. This upsets the Dark Elf and ruins his concentration so that he can no longer maintain his magnetic shield. Now Cecil and the party can use their weapons and metal armor again.

After defeating the Dark Elf, Edward tells you he was playing an old elven song that was said to greatly upset dark elves.

Much to Edward's surprise, it begins to work again as they reach the Depths of the True Moon, and discover that the the moon is moving in closer to the Earth.
