Arctic Wind artwork from Final Fantasy IV.

Now, it is a well-known fact among researchers of arctic monstrosities that the yeti possesses lungs of particular fascination, operating as they do at a temperature colder than ice, making them well-suited to the breathing of frigid air. Unique structures within the yeti's lungs cause atmospheric moisture to form icy tubes, with the openings on either side which permit the flow of air. Over time, these tubular structures grow ever more intricate, and when they are later forcibly removed from the yeti's chest cavity, they become the curious objects known as arctic winds, and are highly collectible.
A Curious Treasure

The Arctic Wind (北極の風, Hokkyoku no Kaze?), also known as North Wind, is a recurring, single-use item in the Final Fantasy series that frequently is used to cause some form of Ice damage to one or more targets (not to be confused with the similarly named Antarctic Wind).

The Arctic Wind appears as a throwing weapon dropped from Genbu, with a special use: if it is thrown at Suzaku, it disables his additional Fire damage on melee attacks, making it easier on the tank. The Antarctic Wind serves an inverse function.

A slender cylinder with hollow ends, made of raging arctic winds. Gives off a constant chilling aura of magickal potency.
—Description

The Arctic Wind appears as loot that can be acquired from Yeti and as a reward for hunting the Catoblepas. One may be sold toward unlocking the Feathered Boots at the Bazaar. The Arctic Wind may be sold for 1,179 gil.
