The Moonflow.

The Moonflow is a large river that dissects Spira's main continent into Southern and Northern halves in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. The primary method of crossing is on shoopuf, an elephant-like creature that can swim across the expansive river. Moonlilies grow on the Moonflow's banks and pyreflies gather on its surface at night, making the water glow and sparkle. Although a beautiful area, the weather is always overcast and cloudy.

In Final Fantasy X there are many merchants operating from each of the banks, including O'aka XXIII.

Final Fantasy XEdit

Yuna in the Moonflow

Yuna and her guardians in the Moonflow.

Yuna and her guardians travel through the Moonflow on their way to Macalania Temple and cross the river via shoopuf. In the deepest part of the waters, the remains of an ancient machina city can be seen; legend says its people tried to defy the laws of nature by building on bridges crossing the river, but eventually the city grew so large that the bridges could no longer support it and it sank. According to Wakka, this story is a perfect example of the teachings of Yevon; that having too much power and seeking to use it is a dangerous thing.

The party's shoopuf is then ambushed by the Al Bhed. Yuna is kidnapped and placed into their underwater machina, forcing Tidus and Wakka to fight it off. After docking at the opposite bank, Tidus finds Rikku washed ashore of the Moonflow, where it is revealed that she piloted the machina in the first place. Rikku joins the party as Yuna's final guardian, while discreetly alerting the others to keep her heritage a secret from Wakka, who opposes the Al Bhed. Afterward, the party continues on their way to Guadosalam.

Final Fantasy X-2Edit


The bandits trying to steal from the carriage.

An eccentric stage producer Tobli is putting up a show on the banks of Moonflow. In Chapter 1, the Gullwings can help fend off Tobli's chocobo carriage from bandits. Tobli gives the girls the Gun Mage dressphere as a reward.

Tobli's show goes under way, but turns out to be a flop. Tobli, now indebted to the Al Bhed, escapes through the Moonflow and the Gullwings must catch him. Later, Tobli is having a new show on the Moonflow, and even the Gullwings can take part in it.

Final Fantasy X -Will-Edit

When Chuami and Kurgum are sent to Besaid by Baralai to meet with Yuna, Kurgum shows Yuna a movie sphere with a recording of two shoopufs at the Moonflow. The shoopuf was the last of its kind after the female was killed by Sin thirty years ago, but it mysteriously reappeared one morning, causing Yuna to believe the shoopuf had been "beckoned".

Kurgum tells Yuna she must accompany him and Chuami back to Bevelle and address the Spiran Council and as they pass over the Moonflow on an airship, they see the shoopufs and a crowd of onlookers, where half of the people are illusions created by the pyreflies. They see a father and daughter with the illusion of the girl's mother who answers her request for them to go home together, which stuns the group, since the illusions normally can't hear or speak. Kurgum insists the illusions should be sent to the Farplane, but Yuna says they don't have the right to interfere with the reunion.


South Bank RoadEdit

The South Bank road is a long, straigthforward stretch running between the Djose Highroad and the banks of the Moonflow proper.

In Final Fantasy X, there is a chest nearby Shelinda, containing three Lv. 1 Key Spheres. Near the turn in the road is a chest with an X-Potion. On the right side of the road, in the grass, is another chest with three more Lv. 1 Key Spheres. Belgemine may be found near the end of the road, and challenging her to the battle will reward the party with the capability of adding abilities to aeons, along with Dragon Scale x2 for winning or Smoke Bomb x6 for losing. Just past her on the left is a hidden thicket containing a Magic Def Sphere.

South BankEdit

The South Bank is a small section of road with a good view of the Moonflow.

South WharfEdit

The South Wharf is where people gather to board the shoopuf to cross to the north bank of the Moonflow.

In Final Fantasy X, O'aka may be found here, and he will sell goods and weapons to the player. In the adjoining area, many more merchants peddling goods may be found. The area next to that contains a chest with 5000 gil, as well as a Save Sphere. More traders may be found in this area.

North WharfEdit

The North Wharf is located on the opposite side of the Moonflow, and will ferry passengers back to the south side.

In Final Fantasy X, a Save Sphere may be found in the section the party ends up at after riding the shoopuf. In the adjoining area, O'aka may be found, but he sells only items during this encounter. In the nearby waiting area, a treasure chest with an Ether may be found.

North BankEdit

Like the South Bank, the North Bank is a small area overlooking the waters of the Moonflow. In Final Fantasy X, Rikku may be found here. A chest with four Antidotes may be found to the right after Rikku's tutorial.

North Bank RoadEdit

The North Bank Road leads from the North Bank up towards Guadosalam. It is much shorter than the corresponding South Bank Road.

In Final Fantasy X, a Mega-Potion may be found on the left, midway through the road.

Musical ThemesEdit

"Movement in Green"
FFX - Movement in Green
Trouble with the audio sample?

"Movement in Green" is the track that plays on the path to the Moonflow in Final Fantasy X. It shares the melody with the game's main theme "Zanarkand" with an andante tempo. "Rides Ze Shoopuf?" plays at the Moonflow after Tidus sees the shoopuf.

In Final Fantasy X-2, the theme that plays at the Moonflow is "Mi'ihen Highroad". "Joost leave it tae us!" plays during Tobli's concert in Chapter 5.
