Gungnir (グングニル, Gunguniru?), also called Javelin and Gunge Lance (グングニルの槍, Gunguniru no Yari?), is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is often a signature attack of Odin, used in some games instead of Zantetsuken when Zantetsuken would not be able to kill enemies outright, and hits enemies for high damage rather than inflicting Instant Death like Zantetsuken.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VEdit

V Gungnir will be thrown by Odin when summoned against an enemy immune to Zantetsuken. Gungnir attacks one enemy for heavy non-elemental damage. It is called the Javelin in the PlayStation version.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

VII Gunge Lance is used by Odin if summoned against a group of enemies and Steel Bladed Sword is calculated to not work either due to immunity to Instant Death attacks or the attack missing. Gungnir attacks one enemy for non-elemental damage equal to 4.875x base magic damage.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-Edit

FFVIICC The enemy Spike Machine can use an ability named Gungnir to deal 10,000 points of damage, regardless of barriers or vitality, making it a one hit death move if it connects regardless of level or current HP.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

IX While the attack is still called Zantetsuken, Odin will use Gungnir to attack enemies instead of Zantetsuken if Garnet has the Odin's Sword support ability equipped. The power of the attack is 145, minus one for the total number of Ore in the player's inventory. (See Summon (Final Fantasy IX)#Mechanics for damage formulae.) When he was summoned by Queen Brahne, this was used to destroy Cleyra.

EtymologyEdit

In Norse mythology, Gungnir is a javelin forged and crafted by dwarves, known as the Sons of Ivaldi, on Loki's request as part of his apology for cutting off the hair of Sif. It was given to Odin and had the uncanny ability of always hitting the target it was thrown at.

The ability has also been known as Javelin. A javelin is a light spear designed primarily to be thrown as a ranged weapon. The javelin is almost always thrown by hand, although hurling devices do exist. The word javeline comes from Middle English and it derives from Old French javelin, a diminutive of javelot, which meant spear.
