Zeromus (Summon): Misc


Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

"Honoring the law more than any other, a scion of holy order and condemner of criminals. Created in opposition to Knight-Star Pashtarot, scion of light. He turns his deep, abiding hatred for those who break the law into living darkness, therein to plunge the guilty in fell judgment. Over time, he came to care less for upholding the law and more for condemnation, and so tainted by hate, he sought to condemn the gods themselves to death. Thus, did he earn the title "The Condemner", and thus did he fall from grace."
Clan Primer Bio

Zeromus the Condemner (断罪の暴君ゼロムス Danzai no Houkun Zeromusu lit. Zeromus the Tyrant of Conviction) is an Esper from the world of Ivalice. The Esper of Gravity, he represents the Zodiac sign of Cancer, the Crab. Zeromus has a giant claw, just like a crab. From his power of Gravity, his color sign is Indigo. He is also referred to as the Karka Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology.

Zeromus is based on the final boss from Final Fantasy IV, Zeromus. Apart from sharing the same name, they also have the same signature attack, Big Bang, and the theme of hate consuming them.




Final Fantasy XII

For the enemy page, see Zeromus (Final Fantasy XII)

Zeromus is located in the Stilshrine of Miriam, in a hidden chamber that can only be accessed by using the Stone of the Condemner. Since the area is remote with no other means of access, it seems a good place to seal an Esper.


Big Bang

Gravity Well: A Gravity Elemental attack. Damage is calculated by:

(Zeromus' Max HP - Zeromus' current HP) x 2

By casting Bubble on Zeromus, you can break the damage limit with this attack.

Big Bang: A gravity elemental attack, and Zeromus' ultimate attack. In a cosmic vortex, Zeromus flies erratically. He stops, opening his shell, and charges a gravity spell on his stinger. Opening his claw, he siphons the energy into his palm, and then launches the resultant ball. It flies beyond the chunk of rock the enemy is suspended upon and detonates at the horizon of the enemies, sweeping outward and damaging all foes in range with crushing gravity. Damage is calculated by:

(Zeromus' Max HP - Zeromus' current HP) x 5

It has no damage limit, and its range of damage can be increased by Bubble. His HP caps at 6943 (at level 99), so the theoretical maximum damage output (after Bubble) from Zeromus is 69425 if at one HP, potentially making it the strongest attack in FFXII. Though considering the difficulty of getting Zeromus's HP to anywhere near that level without killing it, it may be better to go with something else unless you feel lucky.
