Entrance to Mt. Gagazet in Final Fantasy X HD.

Gagazet is Ronso land, sacred mountain of Yevon. The mountain will not bear the footsteps of infidels!

Mt. Gagazet (ガガゼト山, Gagazeto-yama?) 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 by all races of Spira. Before the Eternal Calm only summoners and their guardians are permitted to pass beyond the mountain gate as it is the final test of the summoner's resolve before entering the Zanarkand Ruins.

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, though after speaking to the group he is impressed by Yuna's conviction. Her determination to finish her pilgrimage despite being disgraced by followers of the Yevon faith convinces him to let her pass. However, Kimahri is challenged to a battle by Yenke and Biran to settle an old rivalry between them. Once Kimahri bests the duo in battle, the Ronso swear to guard the gate stopping any Guado who might wish to detain the group.

Climbing the mountain several monuments are left from previous summoners, these monuments mark those who fell, having been bested by the mountain. As the party reach the part of the mountain known as the Prominence they are accosted by Seymour Guado. Following their trail, he had murdered dozens of Ronso who gallantly died trying to protect Yuna and her friends. Kelk, Biran, and Yenke were all killed by Seymour's hands. The party soon battle and defeat the third incarnation of his unsent form, Seymour Flux.

Fayth scar3

The party at Fayth Scar.

Along the path following from the Prominence the party discover a wall where thousands of fayth were being used for a massive group summoning. It is revealed that these were the original residents of Zanarkand, who gave their lives to save their city, if only in a dream. Collectively these fayth are used by Yu Yevon to summon the Dream Zanarkand, and Sin protects Yu Yevon, allowing this illusion to have continued for at least a thousand years.

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

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

The summit of the mountain is surrounded by a dense mist which lifted following Sin's defeat and the Fayth were allowed to rest. What was uncovered was a floating ruin, remnants of an ancient temple, which Sphere Hunters explored hoping to find treasure. The Ronso were deeply offended by the trespass of their land by common people, and Kimahri asked Yuna if she would try to get rid of them.

Gagazet Ruins5

YRP atop Mt. Gagazet.

The Gullwings pick up treasure sphere waves emanating from 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. However, the syndicate are later found hanging precariously from the ruins, having fallen off of the edge. The sphere is said to be a "dud" but is equipped as the Black Mage dressphere.

After the Eternal Calm begins, Kimahri assumes leadership in the role of elder for the Ronso. The few that remain are found at Gagazet's mountain gate. Kimahri is indirectly responsible for Yuna's journey in Final Fantasy X-2, as he finds a sphere with a man who looks strikingly similar to Tidus.

RYP Hot Spring

YRP in the hot spring.

Later, the Gullwings are looking for Syndicate members so they can steal their uniforms and infiltrate Chateau Leblanc. Finding Ormi and Fem-Goons, they engage in a short skirmish and win easily, taking a uniform. Afterward, the YRP have a chance at relaxing in the 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 the Guado race, wanting retribution for Seymour's homicidal actions in the previous game. Though Kimahri tried to stop the rash group, it is eventually YRP who put down the uprising by fighting Garik and stopping him from leading both races to war. Most of the Ronso will forgive the Guado for their genocide, but Kimahri highlights the example Lian and Ayde have set for the Ronso. He suggests that they must travel Spira and learn from their journey if they are to move forward with the rapidly changing world.

One of 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 the events of Final Fantasy X. Biran had said that 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 a large number of Spiran denizens, including Clasko, Rin, and Isaaru, among others. Their interactions can be viewed through the CommSphere in Chapter 4.

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, then the young merchant 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 airship 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 here after the player has control of the airship. Dark Anima will appear at the gate of Mt. Gagazet after completing the Target minigame again.

However, unlike the previous, now for each failed attempt triggers a battle composed of all fiends that are found in the Mountain Cave in a strict order (ie, starts with Bandersnatch's group and finishes with Behemoth, and then back to Bandersnatch). The player can take advantage of this by failing repeatedly in order 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 choice window will pop 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".

Other AppearancesEdit

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain CallEdit

Mt. Gagazet acts as the background for the Field Music Sequence of "People of the North Pole".



  • 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.
