Diamond Weapon (ダイヤウェポン, Daiya Wepon?) is a Weapon-type enemy that first appeared as a boss in Final Fantasy VII. It is one of the many Weapons created by the Planet of Final Fantasy VII as its "defense mechanism". It is gray with a large red gem in its chest that emits light. Diamond Weapon is roughly humanoid in appearance, with a distinct pair of feet, hands, shoulders, and a torso and head. It has a covering over the back of its legs similar to a cloak or cape. It can open up the armoring on its shoulder panels to fire powerful energy projectiles that have incredible range.


Final Fantasy VIIEdit



Like the optional Weapon encounters, Diamond Weapon is fought by engaging it on the world map. Unlike the other Weapons, fighting Diamond Weapon is mandatory in all but the original Japanese version, where Diamond Weapon cannot be fought and its spoil, a weapon for Yuffie, is thus also dummied. If the player triggers the Diamond Weapon glitch by saving the game on the world map when the battle is to begin, they ruin that save file.

Diamond Weapon is immune to physical attacks until it opens up its armor if hit with a certain number of summons or Limit Breaks. At this point it will use Countdown. Unless killed in three rounds, it will use the Diamond Flash to hit all party members for 7/8 of their current HP, and inflict the Silence status, reverting its immunity to physical attacks. During the countdown it is immune to magical attacks and only uses its laser ray. After having used Diamond Flash the first time, the party will need to use three Limit Breaks, not two, to trigger the countdown again.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Diamond Weapon is one of the Weapons the Planet released in response to Sephiroth summoning Meteor. It rises out of the ocean and charges toward Midgar, prompting Cloud's party to pursue it. Once the party defeats the Diamond Weapon it is still approaching Midgar. Once within range, it opens fire on the Shinra Headquarters, nearly killing Rufus Shinra. Shinra fires the Sister Ray, a powerful Mako cannon, which pierces Diamond Weapon and destroys the barrier Sephiroth erected over the North Crater.

Spoilers end here.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XVEdit

XV Diamond Weapon is one of the daemons terrorizing Lucis at the behest of Niflheim. When the Kingsglaive engage the Empire in Duscae region, the sun sets and the Empire deploys a Diamond Weapon upon them, but retreats after demonstrating its superiority to the Lucian forces. There is more than one Diamond Weapon, and during the invasion of Insomnia, Niflheim deploys multiple Diamond Weapons against the Old Wall statues. As the Diamond Weapon is a daemon, it can only operate during night, and when the sun rises on the devastated Insomnia, the Diamond Weapons are gone.

Diamond Weapon appears as figurines in the Final Fantasy Creatures Vol 3 series that came out in 2003. The Final Fantasy Creatures collection figurines require minimal assembly and there are three types of every character: full-color, crystal, and chrome. In North America the Final Fantasy Creatures figurines did not require assembly and had a completely different package with multiple creatures per pack.



In mineralogy, diamond is a metastable allotrope of carbon, where the carbon atoms are arranged in a variation of the face-centered cubic crystal structure called a diamond lattice. Diamond is the birthstone for April.


  • Upon closer inspection of the FMV where Diamond Weapon is blasted, it appears to be heading away from Midgar before launching an attack on it.
  • In the scenes where Diamond Weapon attacks Midgar it is shown to be dusk, but when the energy blasts destroy Shinra Headquarters, it is shown to be nighttime.
