Final Fantasy VI PlayStation bestiary entry

Goddess is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. She is a member of the Warring Triad, and one of the three final bosses in Kefka's Tower before facing Kefka himself. According to the Final Fantasy III Nintendo Player's Guide, the final battle sequence against the Statue of the Gods is supposed to be a rematch of the Warring Triad; the second tier being Goddess.[1] No official material support this, however; the idea was created by Nintendo of America.

Though Goddess has the lowest HP of the three Warring Triad members, she is arguably the most difficult to defeat due to a dangerous attack unique to her that can catch players off-guard. Goddess has inherent Shell and Haste and she counters any regular physical attack with Overture, which forces the target to take all physical damage for the Goddess. She can use Entice, inflicting a Confuse-like status that cannot be healed by spells or items and makes the character attack their allies, and Lullaby. Offensively, the Goddess's normal attacks are not powerful. She uses Thundaga, Thundara, Flash Rain and Quasar, a rare spell that does non-elemental damage to the party.

When damaged eight times, Goddess uses Cloudy Heaven, an attack unique to her. From that point forward, all characters who die, for any reason, become zombies. All characters also gain a Doom timer, which will quickly zombify the party if not in a position to with the battle quickly enough. The zombification effect lasts until the end of the battle — if a party member is cured of Zombie status and killed again, they become a zombie again. Only the Safety Bit and the Memento Ring block this move, as Cloudy Heaven is treated as an instant death attack rather than a status attack, thus ignoring status immunity to Zombie from relics like the Ribbon.


It is best to kill Goddess as quickly as possible before Cloudy Heaven. Flare and Ultima will ignore Shell and do full damage, and multi-hit attacks with the Master's Scroll also work well. Equipment that absorbs or negates Lightning will nullify much of the Goddess's attack spells, though the true dangers are her status attacks.

Other AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

FFXIV Sophia


Known as "Sophia, the Goddess", she is one of the Warring Triad, three primals that were defeated by the Allagan Empire and imprisoned as statues for centuries within the floating continent of Azys Lla. During the later events of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, her seal begins to weaken and the Warrior of Light must fight her within the Containment Bay P1T6.

In contrast to her original appearance, Sophia is depicted with glossy black skin with flowing white hair and a set of white robes with gold ornate, she also fights and floats on her signature Medusa-like Head.

A goddess is a female deity with supernatural powers in polytheistic religions. Goddesses most often have female characteristics that are apotheosized in their pure form, and some cases they have rather general for all humans characteristics, both men and women, like Sophia, and other times they can have characteristics that are rather not specific for women like battle and hunting success (Artemis). Thus while they have been, are and may be associated with as wide a range of phenomena as male deities, including war, creation and sometimes destruction (and death), life-giving, healing and compassion, they have been especially associated with beauty, love, motherhood and in prehistoric religions and also later with the Earth, fertility (Mother-goddess cult in prehistoric times).

In the original concept artwork by Tetsuya Nomura, the Warring Triad are given names beyond their basic titles. Goddess is named Sophia. Sophia, Greek for wisdom, is a central idea in Hellenistic philosophy and religion, Platonism, Gnosticism, Orthodox Christianity, Esoteric Christianity, as well as Christian mysticism, and is commonly represented as a goddess. Sophia is also a primary deity in Gnosticism.

Goddess is the only one of the Warring Triad whose name has remained the same in all official English translations—likely because, unlike the other two, there is little ambiguity in how to translate めがみ (megami?).


  • In the North American SNES release, due to tighter censorship, Goddess's clothing was edited for greater coverage of her breasts and upper thighs. The uncensored sprite was used in all other releases until the mobile remake, which uses a new design.
  • In Final Fantasy X, Yunalesca's appearance seems to be based on the Goddess. Yunalesca's artworkYunalesca artwork is in the same position as the Goddess, and her third form has her mounted on the back of a medusa-like head similar to the Goddess and her mount. Like the Goddess, Yunalesca favors turning the party members into zombies.
