Sephiroth using Heartless Angel in Dissidia Final Fantasy.

Heartless Angel (心ない天使? or こころないてんし, Kokoronai Tenshi?), also known as Fallen One, is a recurring enemy ability in the Final Fantasy series. When used, it brings the party's HP down to 1. While its first appearance was in Final Fantasy VI, it has however become one of Sephiroth's signature attacks.


Final Fantasy VIEdit

Originally translated as Fallen One in the SNES version, Heartless Angel reduces all opponents' HP to 1 and it costs 20 MP for the enemy to use. The attack depicts angels coming down from above (the same animation as Raise), dealing damage.

Kefka Palazzo uses this in the final battle, but the Kaiser Dragon, Fiend Dragon, Holy Dragon, Crystal Dragon, and Red Glutturn also sport this attack.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit


In Final Fantasy VII, Heartless Angel is only cast in the final battle by Bizarro∙Sephiroth and Safer∙Sephiroth. It takes the form of a single angel that sprinkles magic on the player characters leaving them with one HP.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-Edit

Sephiroth uses Heartless Angel during his first battle with Zack Fair. Professor Hojo's simulations of Sephiroth, Experiments No.'s 107, 108, and 124 also use the attack. Some normal enemies have an attack called Heartless Needle, which functions identically to Heartless Angel but is a melee attack rather than a spell.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

Heartless Angel is an enemy ability usable by Bhunivelze in his fourth – final form. When used, two angels, one white and one black, appear and circle around Lightning. After some time passes, they attack her reducing her HP to 1, unless the player manages to perform Perfect Guard which will result in nullifying the damage. The two angels resemble the fal'Cie Eden.

Dissidia Final FantasyEdit

Sephiroth can use Heartless Angel during his EX Mode. The attack will reduce the opponent's Bravery to 1, but only functions if Sephiroth is not afflicted with Break status.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Heartless Angel returns as one of the bonuses of Sephiroth's EX Mode, with the same functionality as it had in the first game.

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2015)Edit

Heartless Angel returns as Kefka Palazzo's EX move, marking the first time Kefka was seen using it since Final Fantasy VI.

Kingdom HeartsEdit

Descend, Heartless Angel.
—Sephiroth's battle quote before using Heartless Angel in Kingdom Hearts

Heartless Angel returns prominently in both of Sephiroth's boss battles in the Kingdom Hearts series. The move immediately drains Sora's HP and MP to zero unless the Second Chance skill is equipped, in which case Sora will survive with one HP. It is possible to stop Heartless Angel by attacking Sephiroth before he completes his casting motions.



An angel is a non-physical entity or spirit found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks. The term "angel" has also been expanded to various notions of spirits found in many other religious traditions. In art, angels are often depicted with bird-like wings on their back, a halo, robes and various forms of glowing light. In addition, "heartless" is a term meaning a lack of feeling or compassion. Angels are typically described as benevolent.

The original translation in Final Fantasy VI, "Fallen One", refers to the fallen angels. A fallen angel is a wicked or rebellious angel that has been cast out of heaven. The term "fallen angel" does not appear in the Bible, but it is used of angels who sinned (such as those referred to in 2 Peter 2:4, "For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment ..."), of angels cast down to the earth in the War in Heaven, of Satan, demons, or of certain Watchers. The term has become popular in fictional literature regarding angels.
