Bestiary Entry

Classification: Walker of the Wheel

Page 1: Observations

Tutelary deity of the sacred crystals fashioned by the gods at the time of the Great Making. Created in opposition to Mitron the Chastiser, scion of light. Upon entering the world of Man, he was enveloped in the turmoil rampant there. Lost, he died and was reborn countless times, a walker of life's wheel, eventually to rage against the gods that had so fated him. By sitting in meditation upon the Unrh Pedestal does he clear heart and mind until all that has order and reason and thought is made as nothing.

Side Quest

Before the player can fight Chaos, a side quest must be completed to obtain the appointed keys. The player must go to Nabreus Deadlands to trigger the scene with the Nu Mou Ma'Kleou, and then collect three fragments.

First Medallion

To get the first medal the player must collect three medallion shards: Blackened Fragment, Dull Fragment and Grimy Fragment. To get the Blackened Fragment the Wraith, White Mousse, and Orthros hunts must be cleared, and the player will receive the Blackened Fragment as reward for the Orthros hunt. The Dull Fragment is hidden in the Garamsythe Waterway. After obtaining the Sluice Gate Key (reward from White Mousse hunt mission), the player can work the Sluice Gate Switches in the waterway. The player must first turn all the switches off (that means lights off) and follow the steps below:


Dull Fragment on the floor.

  • On No.11 Area Panel (that means light up the panel)
  • On No.4 Area Panel
  • Off No.11 Area Panel
  • On No.3 Area Panel
  • Off No.4 Area Panel

After the last gate is closed a click is heard and south in the same semi-circle area, on the ground, there is a glittering object, the Dull Fragment.


To get the Grimy Fragment the player must return to Rabanastre Lowtown and go to Old Dalan's place and speak to the Nu Mou known as Roh'Kenmou. In order for Roh'Kenmou to appear at Old Dalan's place the player must have first spoken to Ma'Kleou in the Nabreus Deadlands. Filo is around the South East area of Lowtown and mentions the kids are also looking for the medallion. In Rabanastre's central section, Southern Plaza, there is a "Curious Woman" looking at the fountain. After talking to the "Curious Woman" the player should walk to the Muthru Bazaar and speak to the merchants about the necklace to get the information, then head to the Magick Shop and speak to the "Sotted Imperial," the soldier sitting in the left corner, and choose the first option twice. Back in Lowtown the player should talk to Filo again, choose "Let's Go" with Filo for some events to get the last fragment, Grimy Fragment.

Back in Old Dalan's place the player should to give all the fragments to Roh'Kenmou and he will disappear.

Second Medal

In Archades the player can find Roh'Kenmu within the Magick Shop, looking for a medallion. In the Old Archades the player can find the Proper Gent sitting on a side wall in the eastern side of the Alley of Muted Sighs. He is Otto and he will give the Moonsilver Medallion, which the player must pass on to Roh'Kenmu at the Magick Shop.

Final Medal

After giving the first two medallions to the Nu Mous, the player must travel to Nabreus Deadlands and talk to Ma'Kleou, then head northwest and search for a hidden path. One can find it by going south from the Gate Crystal, following the section, and searching the northwest area of The Slumbermead for the path. This is also the place where Roblon is fought. At the end of the path there is a monument with the Nu Mous, and the player gets the Medallion of Bravery, Medallion of Love, and the Lusterless Medallion.

Finding Chaos

After obtaining the medallions, the player must head to the Cloister of Distant Song in the Nechrohol of Nabudis, and use the Medallion of Bravery to open the Door of Horrors, and defeat the Humbaba Mistant. Next, the player must head to the Hall of the Ivory Covenant and use the Medallion of Love to open the Door of Loathing and bring down the Fury. The player must defeat Humbaba Mistant and Fury to change the Lusterless Medallion to the Medallion of Might, which opens the Door of Despair to fight Chaos in the central section.


Since there is no Save Crystal before the fight, it is better make sure all party members are in top-notch condition. Windbreakers are helpful in reducing damage, and the player can switch equipment when Chaos readies his special attack. On the battlefield, all attack commands will be sealed.

Chaos can be inflicted with Sap and Slow. Chaos tends to use Fearga, which reduces the whole party's MP. It is useful to place gambits to use Smelling Salts or Remedy to deal with Confuse from Aeroja. In addition, Chaos inflicts Silence often, so it is good to be stocked up on Echo Herbs.

The player can either go the physical route with Souleater, Telekinesis, and Gil Toss, or put up Reflect and bounce non-elemental spells at Chaos. Also, Knots of Rust can be used to damage Chaos. Knots of Rusts can be bought at the Clan Store in the Muthru Bazaar in Rabanastre. The Knots of Rust are useful against the elementals that are fought along with Chaos as well. Chaos's attacks can sometimes inflict Disable, so it would be a good idea to equip Black Belts. Using the Nihopalaoa/Remedy trick to inflict Sap and Slow on him also helps.
