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 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.
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.
|1||Summon time remaining < 10s||Big Bang|
|2||Foe: any||Gravity Well|
Zeromus has considerably more HP as well to boost the power of Gravity Well and Big Bang.
Zeromus appears as a Scion. He can be called by anyone equipping the Condemner's Choker when the Smash Gauge is orange. Zeromus's Wrath, Big Bang, deals damage to one enemy equal to the amount of HP lost by the caster.
