—Description, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

The Ragnarok (ラグナロク, Ragunaroku?), also known as Crystal Sword, is a weapon that appears in various games in the series. It is usually one of the most powerful swords.


Final FantasyEdit

A sword etched with words of the gods.

The Ragnarok only appears in the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes of the original Final Fantasy. It is the strongest weapon in the game next to the Barbarian Sword, but it can only be obtained after defeating the superboss Shinryu in the Lifespring Grotto.

Final Fantasy IIEdit

A sword of epic might, wielded in the war of the gods.

The Ragnarok is obtainable in the Arcane Sanctuary, found only in the PSP and iPhone's Anniversary Edition. It is the strongest sword in the game (unless the characters' stats are maxed out, in which case it is a little better than the Masamune, due to its real usefulness coming from the 99% Strength bonus), but it can only be equipped by Firion.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

The Ragnarok is one of the most powerful weapons in the game. It is found in Eureka and is protected by Guardian. It can be equipped by Warriors, Knights, Dark Knights, Onion Knights, and, in the Famicom version, Ninjas. It has an Attack of 140 and adds +5 points to all stats.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Sealed holy sword feared by monsters.

The Ragnarok is Cecil's ultimate weapon in most releases including the original. It was originally known to players as the Crystal Sword in the SNES version, and is obtained in the Lunar Subterrane by defeating Dark Bahamut. Both Ragnarok swords are metallic.

In the Advance and Complete Collection remakes, Cecil gets weapons that surpass the Ragnarok, one being the Lightbringer. In the 3D remake, Ragnarok is weaker than its original counterpart by 50 Attack points, making it much less useful in the final dungeon, which features enemies with a resistance to Holy damage.

FFIV 2-Handed Ragnarok - Dummied

There is a unused two-handed Ragnarok in the item list within the game's data. It does not have a sword icon, but named None (named Spare in the original Japanese version). If force-equipped to a character with a cheating device, its weapon graphic is the same as the Ragnarok sword and its attack and sound effect are also the same. It also has the same Holy attribute with an attack power of 200, the same attack power as the single-handed Ragnarok. The only difference is that it cannot be equipped by anyone. This sword is by no means obtainable in any version of the game, and it is found in all versions of Final Fantasy IV including Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.

On the Easy Type version, it was renamed to Sword of the Gods.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

The Ragnarok is found in a chest in the Depths of the True Moon, guarded by Lord Dragon (otherwise known as Shinryu; in the Wii and PSP versions) or Lunar Odin (in the smartphone versions). It is not exclusive to Cecil. The Ragnarok's stats are similar to its original appearance. The two-handed Ragnarok can also be found within the game's data, and it's still unobtainable without the use of a cheating device.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Sword with runes of the gods carved in its surface. Can be used two-handed. Can be used with Spellblade.

The Ragnarok is the ultimate sword in the game's original release, obtained by defeating Shinryu in the Interdimensional Rift. It can also be stolen from the back section of the final boss.

However, in the Advance remake, the Ultima Weapon, obtained by defeating Neo Shinryu, is far stronger than Ragnarok. Added to that, the Chicken Knife can potentially become more powerful than the Ragnarok if the wielder runs away roughly 120 times while equipped with it.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Sword that may cast Flare upon striking an enemy.

The Ragnarok is one of the most powerful swords obtained by going to the weapon shop in Narshe in the World of Ruin, and having Locke pick the lock to enter. The shop owner hiding in the back room shows the party a magicite stone, which is actually the esper Ragnarok.

He offers to turn the magicite into a sword, or leave it as it is. Turning it into the sword will make it more difficult to learn Ultima, the most powerful spell in the game, requiring purification of the Cursed Shield. Betting the Ragnarok in the Colosseum gives the Lightbringer as a reward.

The sword has 255 Battle Power, and enables the Bushido and Runic commands. It will consume 20 MP each turn to perform an automatic critical hit. It will randomly cast the Flare spell in addition to attacking. The sword can be equipped by Terra, Locke, Edgar, and Celes. In the Advance version, it is possible to get multiple Ragnaroks by stealing from Lady.

Ragnarok is affected by the Capture Glitch.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

The Ragnarok is a sword for Cloud obtained by defeating the Proud Clod in Midgar, and is Cloud's second strongest weapon, bested only by the Ultima Weapon. It has six linked Materia slots and also gives a boost to Spirit.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

Knight sword bearing divine inscriptions.

The Ragnarok is a sword for Steiner found in a Chocograph called Outer Island that can be dug from Chocobo's Air Garden. It teaches Thunder Slash and Shock. Aside from Excalibur II, Ragnarok is Steiner's most powerful sword. With equipped Add Status, Ragnarok can inflict Slow with 30% chance.

Final Fantasy XEdit

The Ragnarok is a sword that can be created by adding Triple AP, Triple Overdrive and Overdrive->AP to one of Tidus's swords. The sword will be called Ragnarok, unless Break Damage Limit is added as well, at which point it will turn into the Excalibur.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

The Ragnarok is a Relic Weapon available to the Warrior, Paladin, and Dark Knight Job classes. To obtain and wield the Great Sword, a player must have one of these jobs leveled up to 75 and have completed a series of lengthy and expensive quests, often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items.

With the expansion of the Magian weapon questlines, the Ragnarok can be upgraded through trials to its current Level 99 Afterglow state, reaching damage levels in-line with its power in the rest of the series. As of 2012, creation of the sword has become particularly popular after a long existence of obscurity due to its measly base damage at Level 75. This is due to the sword's unique method of augmenting critical hits, a trait which can be exploited to devastating effect once the weapon is in its Level 99 form.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

The Ragnarok is a greatsword, acquired by completing the Fishy Dreams Hunt (Ixion). It can only be equipped by characters with the Greatsword 3 license. It has an Attack power of 109 and may cause Immobilize upon strike. All greatswords have 2.47s charge, and 1.2s action time, making them average when it comes to attacking speed.

In the Zodiac Job System version, the Ragnarok can only be equipped by the Red Mage and Knight.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

Unlike previous iterations, the Ragnarok makes an appearance as an axe, the Zodiac Weapon available to warriors. As of patch 2.45, it is the next phase in the evolution of the Relic Weapon quest line, upgraded from the Bravura Nexus.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

This knight's sword is mentioned in tales about the end of the world.

The Ragnarok is one of the most powerful Knight Swords in Final Fantasy Tactics. It had a base power of 24 and gives the wielder the Auto-Shell status. It is found with Treasure Hunter in the The Switchback stage of the Midlight's Deep and is obtained after fighting Hashmal. It can also be found by using the catch skill to catch items thrown by Level 97 Ninjas. It can also be obtained via Rendezvous.

A sword with a very similar name, the Nagrarok (ナグラロク, Naguraroku?), (Nagrarock in the PlayStation version) can also be found. Although it only has a attack power of 1, it may cause Toad on striking and gives the second highest weapon defending rate of 50%. It can be considered as the Ragnarok version of spoof of Excalibur, Excalipoor, while the latter is a mere Artefact and cannot be used in battle.

Final Fantasy Tactics AdvanceEdit

Sword made to end battles.
—In-game description
Knightsword made like Ragnarok, but better.
—Nagrarok's in-game description

The Ragnarok is a Knightsword and can be equipped by the Paladin, Defender, and Templar Job classes. Despite its fabled name, the Ragnarok is one of the weaker Knightswords in the game, however, its counterpart, the Nagrarok, is one of the most powerful weapons.

The Ragnarok teaches the Drop Weapon ability to the Paladin and the Defender Jobs, while it teaches the Silence magic to the Templar. The Ragnarok can be purchased in Sprohm and Cyril for 4,900 gil and in any other town for 5,600 gil. The Nagrarok can be obtained by completing the mission Valuable Fake, which requires a Bent Sword and Rainbowite. It rather uniquely grants its user +1 to his or her movement.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

Though modeled on its predecessor, this sword's power far surpasses that of Ragnarok.
—Description of Nagrarok

The Ragnarok reappears in the sequel with similar attributes to the Tactics Advance incarnation, and can be bought for 2,400 gil in the shop after creating it in the Bazaar after using a Body Ceffyl, Platinum, and Zingu Pearl.

The Nagrarok though, makes an appearance as one of Adelle's special Heritor weapons. Nagrarok must be obtained during the Heritor sidequest, after learning Lennart, Viola, Wermut, and Ljda, then complete the mission at Aisenfield. Ragnarok provides +42 Attack and +5 Magick, while Nagrarok provides +68 Attack, +6 Speed, and +4 Evasion, and teaches Nessiam.

Final Fantasy Crystal ChroniclesEdit

The Ragnarok is a weapon that a Clavat can wield. It can be forged for 5,000 gil with the Dark Weapon Scroll along with the materials Cursed Hook, Orichalcum, and Ancient Sword. Its Focus attack the Shadow Blade, which deals massive damage in exchange for half a heart point of the user's. It's the strongest weapon a Clavat can wield, tied in stats with the Ultima Weapon, but having a stronger Focus Attack

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of FatesEdit

The fantastical sword said to lead toward the world's end, and then to another world reborn.

The Ragnarok is the best weapon for Clavats. It gives the player 180 ATK. The scroll used to make it is called the Götterdämmerung, which description reads "Pattern for the weapon used by the king of gods in the final battle. For Clavats only."

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a KingEdit

The Ragnarok appears as the level 95 sword type weapon. It has 99 attack power and costs 19,823 gil. A sword called the Ragnarok Prime can be obtained after defeating the Wyrm boss in the optional DLC dungeon, Infinity Spire. The Ragnarok Prime is by far the most powerful weapon in the game with 180 attack power and a +52 bonus to all stats.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of TimeEdit

The fantastical sword said to herald the world's end. For Clavats only.

The Ragnarok is a high-end sword only equippable by Clavats, and is the second strongest sword in the game, next to Excalibur. It provides 50 attack at level 1 and 162 attack at level 30, and has three empty slots. It can be dropped by the Mimic at River Belle on Hard or Very Hard, and then created for 1,880 gil by using up one Homunculus Core, one Old Hellish Iron, and one Old Sword. When turned into a jewel, a level 3-9 Ragnarok makes a Berserk Eye, level 10-19 makes a Cat Eye, and level 20-30 makes a Ryoko.

[view  · edit  · purge]Ragnarök is an event in Norse mythology that is similar to the Apocalypse. It is an event that is set off by the death of the god Balder, which was orchestrated by Loki. The Ragnarok was a final clash of all the major entities of Norse mythology. This caused all of the human spirits up in Valhalla to come down for the final battle.

This bloody encounter ebbs with the destruction of the universe and Balder along with a little handful of entities that are put in the bodies of children and only contain memories of the world before Ragnarok. Those entities would become mortal.
