This gunblade uses a semi-automatic pistol, resembling a Beretta rather than a revolver as a handle, and it also has a unique blade. Seifer uses it differently from Squall's gunblades, in a backhand slash rather than a forward one, although this may just be his fighting style and not due to the weapon's design mechanic, and he also uses it with one hand rather than two. Due to a lack of mention in any source material involving gunblades it is unknown whether this is an actual model type or a custom designed model for Seifer's personal use.
Hyperion (ハイペリオン, Haiperion?) is a recurring weapon in the series. Originally appearing as Seifer Almasy's trademark gunblade, it is similar to Squall Leonhart's Revolver, and generally appears whenever the character himself appears.
Hyperion is Seifer's weapon of choice, providing 12 Strength and allowing Seifer access to all of his Limit Breaks, although he will still only use No Mercy while he is playable. The trigger button enhances damage when pressed right when Seifer strikes his enemy, same as how Squall's gunblade works. Hyperion stands apart from Squall's gunblades thanks to its use of a Beretta-style handle instead of Squall's revolvers.
A great sword that can be used for defending as well as attacking. It increases the bearer's maximum HP. Rank: Basic.
The Hyperion appears as Squall's level 25 weapon. Visually it trades the Beretta-style handle for one more resembling Squall's other gunblades.
