This article is in need of a few pictures. Perhaps you can help by uploading a picture of Mt. Gagazet in Theatrhythm: Curtain Call.
Gagazet is Ronso land, sacred mountain of Yevon. The mountain will not bear the footsteps of infidels!

Mt. Gagazet is a location in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. It is the home of the Ronso and gateway to the Holy City of Zanarkand in the world of Spira.

The snow-covered, towering Mt. Gagazet is considered sacred land. Before the Eternal Calm only summoners and their guardians were permitted to pass beyond the mountain gate as the final test of the summoner's resolve before entering the Zanarkand Ruins.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Final Fantasy XEdit


Ronsos Singing

The Ronso singing the "Hymn of the Fayth" for Yuna.

Once Yuna and her guardians arrive at the sacred mountain their way is blocked by Maester Kelk Ronso, but after speaking to the group he is impressed by Yuna's conviction. Her determination to finish her pilgrimage despite being disgraced by followers of Yevon convinces him to let her pass. Kimahri is challenged to a battle by Yenke and Biran to settle an old rivalry and once Kimahri overcomes the duo the Ronso swear to guard the gate stopping anyone who might wish to detain the group.

While climbing the mountain the party spots several monuments left from previous summoners marking those who fell, having been bested by the mountain. As the party reaches the part of the mountain known as the Prominence they are accosted by Seymour Guado who has murdered dozens of Ronso who died trying to protect Yuna and her friends, Kelk, Biran, and Yenke among them. The party defeats the third incarnation of his unsent form, Seymour Flux.

Fayth scar3

The party at Fayth Scar.

The party discovers a wall of thousands of fayth used for a group summoning; the original residents of Zanarkand who gave their lives. Collectively, these fayth are used by Yu Yevon to summon Dream Zanarkand, and Sin protects Yu Yevon, allowing this illusion to have continued for a millennium.

After climbing the mountain path travelers must complete the Trials, which allow passage to the summit and the road to Zanarkand, and Tidus, Wakka, and Rikku complete many trials alone as underwater travel is required. Before the end of the mountain path Braska's Sphere, containing a final message from Braska to his daughter, is found down a short trail off to the side.

At the summit the party battles Sanctuary Keeper and views the ruins of Zanarkand against the setting sun.

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

X-2 After the Eternal Calm begins, Kimahri becomes the Ronso elder and the Ronso continue to live at Gagazet's mountain gate. Kimahri found a sphere with a man who looks like Tidus and had Rikku deliver it to Yuna, who starts her quest as a sphere hunter.

The mountain peak used to be surrounded by a dense mist, but it lifted following Sin's defeat and the fayth departing to the Farplane. What was uncovered was a floating ruin, remnants of an ancient temple, which sphere hunters explore hoping to find treasure. The Ronso are offended by the trespass of their land and Kimahri asks Yuna to get rid of them.

Gagazet Ruins5

YRP atop Mt. Gagazet.

The Gullwings pick up treasure sphere waves emanating from the newly discovered Floating Ruins and decide to look for the sphere. The Leblanc Syndicate follows them to the ruins and after a short battle race YRP to it. The syndicate ends up hanging precariously from the edge of the ruins, and the Gullwings swipe the sphere although it is said to be a "dud". It can be is equipped as the Black Mage dressphere.

RYP Hot Spring

YRP in the hot spring.

Later, the Gullwings search for syndicate members to steal their uniforms so they can infiltrate Chateau Leblanc. Finding Ormi and Fem-Goons, they engage in a short skirmish and claim a uniform. Afterward, the YRP have a chance at relaxing in the mountain's hot springs.

Kimahri has many problems as the elder of the Ronso. Garik Ronso, among several other Ronso Youths, have come to hate the Guado and are ready to extinguish their race, wanting retribution for Seymour's actions. Though Kimahri tries to stop the group, YRP puts down the uprising by fighting Garik and stopping him from leading both races to war. Most of the Ronso will forgive the Guado but Kimahri highlights the example Lian and Ayde have set for the Ronso, and suggests they travel Spira and learn from their journey to move forward with the rapidly changing world.

The Ronso builds a statue of Yuna complete with a horn, as they deem the high summoner worthy of being a Ronso. Yuna was promised this by Biran during her pilgrimage, who had said he would make a grand horn for her statue as penance for breaking Kimahri's horn long ago. Although Biran did not live to see it, one of the Ronso fulfilled his promise, possibly in remembrance of Biran.

The hot springs the Gullwings stumble across at Gagazet seem to be frequented by many Spirans, including Clasko, Rin, and Isaaru. Their interactions can be viewed through the CommSphere.

Spoilers end here.

Final Fantasy XEdit

Meeting WantzEdit

The appearance of Wantz on Mt. Gagazet is missable, and if the player does not speak to him on their first visit he will not appear in Macalania to sell the four-slotted equipment. After talking to Wantz on Mt. Gagazet, he will be found at the entrance to Macalania Woods from the Thunder Plains (Macalania Woods - South), after obtaining the Fahrenheit and completing the mandatory visit to Bevelle's Highbridge.

Target minigameEdit

Wakka's mini-game

Wakka's minigame.

Wakka must hit a target with his blitzball to open a new path within the caves.

Button minigameEdit

Tidus, Rikku and Wakka must swim into three buttons corresponding to their Sphere Grid color scheme—blue for Tidus, green for Rikku and orange for Wakka—to open the path to the Zanarkand Ruins.

Dark AnimaEdit

In the International, PAL and HD Remaster versions, Dark Anima can be fought at the entrance after the player has control of the airship. Dark Anima will appear after completing the Target minigame again. This is available after viewing the campfire scene at start of Zanarkand Ruins.

Each failed attempt triggers a battle composed of all fiends found in the Mountain Cave in a strict order, starting with Bandersnatch's group, finishing with Behemoth, and then back to Bandersnatch. The player can exploit this by failing repeatedly to capture the enemies or to receive gil, items, and experience.

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

Conversation with RonsoEdit

In Chapters 1 and 2, when the player talks to certain Ronso and a choice window pops up, choosing 'correct' answers will affect the optional boss battle at Mt. Gagazet in Chapter 3. Choosing the correct answer when talking to Kimahri in Chapter 2 will also grant a scene in which he gives the Gullwings the Trainer dressphere.

Question Response
Chapter One
Ronso youth grown horns of hatred for Guado. You have to learn to deal with these things!
Must ask High Summoner Yuna: Find Lian and Ayde. Leave it to the Gullwings!
Garik know Yuna save Spira, but Ronso not saved yet. We'll take care of Lian and Ayde.
Many Ronso lost lives in battle to defend High Summoner Yuna. I will never forget their sacrifice.
Guado leave Guadosalam. Guado plan dark schemes! I'm sure you're right.
Ronso grief deeper than mountain snow. I can imagine how you must feel...
Never forgive Seymour, never forgive Guado! I wouldn't forgive them either.
Change will come to Ronso, too. A change for the better, I hope.
Chapter Two
Worry is great burden on Elder's shoulders. He does seem very tired.
Garik avenge murdered Ronso. What if the Guado retaliate?
Guado is source of much chaos! Maybe the Guado really are to blame.
Guado must die for Ronso future! And what of the Guado?
Fight Guado! Please, try to think about it some more.
Guado will escape us! Then... there won't be anyone left to fight.
Sphere hunters are problem. They should take better care of the mountain.

Trouble with the audio sample?

The music that plays on Mt. Gagazet is called "Servants of the Mountain". A piano arranged version of the theme is included on the Piano Collections: Final Fantasy X album. "Hymn of the Fayth - The Ronso" plays after Kimahri defeats Biran and Yenke. "Calm Before the Storm" plays in the Mountain Cave. "Wandering" plays after the Sanctuary Keeper is defeated.

In Final Fantasy X-2 the theme of the mountain is called "Mt. Gagazet".

  • In Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, there is a trade material called "Gagazet Steel", possibly a reference to what the Ronso had said about how Yuna's will is stronger than tempered steel.
  • The Ronso treating Mt. Gagazet as a sacred place may allude to the Japanese culture where many mountains are considered holy with a Buddhist temple/shrine located on them. Thus they're sites of pilgrimages where people will climb up and pray.
