—Description, Final Fantasy IV.

The Lightbringer (ライトブリンガー, Raitoburingā?), also known as Illumina, is a weapon appearing in a few Final Fantasy games. It is usually one of, if not the strongest sword available and is associated with the Holy element, meaning it is particularly effective against the undead.


Final FantasyEdit


A sword that casts Holy when used.

The Lightbringer appears from the Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls port onward, and is the Red Wizard's ultimate weapon. It can be dropped from Death Gaze in the Whisperwind Cove. If used as an item, it will cast Holy. It provides +50 Evasion, +7 Strength, Agility, Intelligence, and Stamina, and has Attack of 48, Accuracy of 40 and Critical of 37.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

IV The Lightbringer appears in the Advance and Complete Collection ports, and is Cecil's best weapon. It is obtained by performing noble deeds, as is a Paladin's job, in Cecil's Lunar Trial. It randomly casts Holy when Cecil attacks with it. It has an Attack of 255 and an Accuracy of 49. It also adds +15 to Strength, Stamina, and Agility. This weapon is metallic.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY The Lightbringer was dummied out, and the only way to acquire it is through hacking via Homebrew. The description to the weapon says "Removed from title," as with many other items available in Final Fantasy IV Advance that do not appear. It can, however, be used as a weapon. It has an Attack of 255 and an Accuracy of 99%. It also adds +15 to Strength, Stamina, and Speed.

Final Fantasy VIEdit


Legendary sword of the heavens. Randomly casts Holy.

Originally translated as Illumina, Lightbringer is the most powerful weapon and sword obtained by betting the Ragnarok in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum. It has an attack power of 255, and increases Strength, Speed, Stamina, and Magic by 7 and increases Evasion and Magic Evasion by 50% each.

In the SNES version, due to the Evade bug, the Evasion bonus does nothing, and the Magic Evasion bonus also affects physical attacks. It has a random chance of casting the Holy spell in addition to its attack. It consumes 20 MP each turn to perform an automatic critical hit, and enables the Bushido and Runic commands. The weapon is a long range weapon. Terra, Locke, Edgar, and Celes can equip it.

Lightbringer is affected by the Capture glitch.

Lightbringer is an alternate name for Lucifer. Lucifer is a Latin word (from lucem ferre), literally meaning "light-bearer". In English, "Lucifer" generally refers to the Devil, although the name is not applied to him in the New Testament. The use of the name "Lucifer" in reference to a fallen angel stems from an interpretation of Isaiah 14:3–20, a passage that speaks of a particular Babylonian King, to whom it gives a title that refers to what in English is called the Day Star or Morning Star (another name for the planet Venus, which appears in the east before the sunrise), as fallen or destined to fall from the heavens or sky. In 2 Peter 1:19 and elsewhere, the same Latin word lucifer is used to refer to the Morning Star, with no relation to the Devil. In post-New Testament times the Latin word lucifer has often been used as a name for the Devil, both in religious writing and in fiction, especially when referring to him before he fell from Heaven.

Illumina means "one who, or that which, illuminates".
