Brotherhood

Artwork of the Brotherhood sword.

To bestow this blade to another is to anoint them your best friend forever.

The Brotherhood (フラタニティ, Furataniti?, lit. Fraternity) is Tidus's signature sword in Final Fantasy X. It appears in several other games as well. His other signature weapon is his ultimate weapon, the Caladbolg.

The Brotherhood is famous for not only being Tidus's weapon, but for its unique appearance, seemingly made of water. It is one of the most recognizable swords in the Final Fantasy series.

DesignEdit

The Brotherhood is a longsword terminating in a long hook with a shimmering blue, water-like blade. In Final Fantasy X, bubbles exude from the blade itself to show its Waterstrike ability after it is customized onto it in Guadosalam. The grip of the sword is wrapped in a brown material, and a red ribbon hangs from the pommel area. The guard is black and extends only over the back of the blade.

Gilgamesh's fake Brotherhood in Final Fantasy XII retains the blade's color, but the sword terminates in two hooks rather than one, the grip is black instead of brown, and the guard is a different shape, more closely resembling a wave.

In the Dissidia Final Fantasy series the hook at the end of the blade is slightly shorter, and the guard is a little smaller than its Final Fantasy X counterpart.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XEdit

FFX HD Tidus Brotherhood

Tidus receives the Brotherhood.

The Brotherhood used to belong to Chappu, Wakka's brother. Wakka gave it to him as a gift a year ago for when Chappu fought as part of the Crusaders against Sin. On the day Chappu died, he did not take his sword, but decided to fight with an Al Bhed machina weapon instead. This made Wakka despise machina, as well as the Al Bhed, on a personal level, rather than on just a religious one. Wakka decides to give the sword to Tidus, because he reminds Wakka of Chappu. It also symbolizes the brother-like bond the two develop.

Wakka Chappu Brotherhood

Wakka telling Chappu that he gave the Brotherhood to Tidus.

When the party visits the Farplane and Tidus listens to Wakka speaking with the image of Chappu, the sword is enhanced, adding Strength +10% and +5%, Waterstrike, and Sensor. Even though the player receives the sword fairly early the Brotherhood is arguably Tidus's strongest non-upgradable weapon, second only to his Celestial Weapon, Caladbolg.

The Brotherhood has a disadvantage against certain fiends if they resist, negate, or absorb the Water-element. However, it is very useful in the Thunder Plains, visited soon after the Farplane, as it is crawling with Lightning-elemental fiends which are weak against water.

Final Fantasy X-2Edit
