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.
In Final Fantasy X there are many merchants operating from each of the banks, including O'aka XXIII.
Yuna and her guardians travel through the Moonflow on their way to Zanarkand and cross the river by a 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.
During the party's travel across the river an Al Bhed machina attacks the party attempting to kidnap Yuna and Tidus and Wakka fight it off. After the encounter they find Rikku washed ashore of the Moonflow and she joins the party as Yuna's guardian, despite being the one who had piloted the machina the first place. The party keep Rikku's heritage a secret from Wakka, who opposes the Al Bhed.
Afterward, the party continues on their way to Guadosalam.
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.
