DFF Heartless Angel

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.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIEdit

VI Heartless Angel (Fallen One in SNES version) 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

VII

Angel-ffvii

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

FFVIICC 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

LR 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.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

XIV Heartless Angel is used as the opening ability by Kefka in his god form in the savage version of Sigmascape V4.0. It drops the entire party's HP to one and is followed up by Ultima, requiring quick healing.

A stronger version, Heartless Archangel, is cast from then on and will similarly drop the party's HP to one but will also leave a debuff, causing all healing to do nothing. The debuff lasts longer the less HP the player has compared to their max HP at the time of the cast, so the party should be at full health in order to receive the shortest duration of three seconds.

Dissidia Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia 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

Dissidia012 Heartless Angel is one of the bonuses of Sephiroth's EX Mode, with the same functionality as it had in the first game.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NTEdit

DissidiaNT Heartless Angel is Kefka Palazzo's EX Skill, marking the first time Kefka was seen using it since Final Fantasy VI. When used, all enemies within his vicinity will be inflicted with a number of status effects, which differs on whether or not the attack was charged. If charged fully, it inflicts Sleep, Silence, Blind and Confuse.

Heartless Angel also is one of Sephiroth's HP attacks. Rather than a spell, it is a single powerful slash wreathed in dark energy that inflicts Doom on the target, causing instant Break after 15 seconds, so long as Sephiroth isn't hit by the target he inflicted the status effect on.

Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera OmniaEdit

DissidiaOOWhen Faced as a enemy, Sephiroth and his manikins can use this skill.

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

Heartless Angel is used prominently in both of Sephiroth's boss battles in the Kingdom Hearts series. The move drains Sora of all his MP, and will leave him with 1HP. Heartless Angel can be cancelled out if Sephiroth is struck in the middle of the casting motion, as it takes a few moments to cast.

EtymologyEdit

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.
