Ark is a boss in Final Fantasy IX, found protecting the Gulug Stone in Oeilvert. It looks like an airship.


Battle Edit

Ark uses four attacks: Propeller Wind, Boomerang, Whirlwind, and Photon. Propeller Wind inflicts Confuse on the entire player party. Boomerang and Whirlwind are basic attacks that reduce HP. Photon will take one party member down to 1 HP.

Strategy Edit

As long as the player has Clear Headed equipped to immunize against Confusion, the fight should not be too hard. Since Oeilvert has an anti-magic field, bringing along magic casters will make the battle more difficult, the exception being Quina, whose attack strength varies.

If Amarant is in the party and the player has Diamond Swords in the inventory, he can keep throwing them; five swords should be enough to kill Ark. Zidane should steal the Holy Lance from Ark, as it is a powerful weapon for Freya.

Etymology Edit

Whether the eidolon and the boss are the same creature is ambiguous. In the Bible, Noah carried seven pairs of each clean animal species and one pair of each unclean animal species, each pair a male and female, into a giant ship called the Ark. The Ark was built by God's command to survive the deluge He sent to purge the world from the sins committed by mankind.

Trivia Edit

  • Ark is the only summon in the game that can be fought against.
