The Blue Narciss (ブルーナルシス, Burū Narushisu?) is a sailing ship of the Regency of Lindblum in Final Fantasy IX. After the disappearance of the Mist which airships relied upon, as well as the failure of the unstable Hilda Garde II, Cid Fabool IX decided to make use of the Alexandrian Navy ship that the party had previously stolen to escape from the First Battle of the Iifa Tree. This became the Blue Narciss.
The Blue Narciss uses two wing-like sails to travel through the sea, and is piloted by Blank. Regent Cid, now in the form of a frog, travels with Zidane. When Cid is finally returned to human form, he remodels the ship again to make the Hilda Garde III.
Location: Gilgamesh (Daguerreo)
Chocobo Treasure (in bubble at southern tip of Forgotten Continent)

In Greek mythology, Narcissus was a hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia known for his beauty and disdained those who loved him. Nemesis noticed this behavior and attracted Narcissus to a pool, where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it, not realizing it was merely an image. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus lost his will to live. He stared at his reflection until he died. Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism, a fixation with oneself and one's physical appearance or public perception. The word narcissus has come to be used for the daffodil.
- Queen Brahne's escape pod seen after her attack on the Iifa Tree is identical in appearance to the Blue Narciss.
