The Ragnarok in Final Fantasy VII.

Common blades are drawn to begin battles. Ragnarok is drawn to end them.

The Ragnarok (ラグナロク, Ragunaroku?), also known as Crystal Sword, is a weapon 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 appears in the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary remakes. It is the strongest weapon 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 iOS Anniversary Edition versions. It is the strongest sword, providing 150 Attack, 99% Accuracy, 2% Evasion, +50 Strength, +30 Spirit, and +99 Agility. It can only be equipped by Firion.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

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

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Sealed holy sword feared by monsters.

The Ragnarok (Crystal Sword in SNES version and Sword of the Gods in the Easy Type version) is Cecil's ultimate weapon in most releases including the original. It is obtained in the Lunar Subterrane by defeating Dark Bahamut. It is 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 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 (Spare in the original Japanese version). If force-equipped to a character with a cheating device, its weapon graphic, attack and sound effects are the same as the Ragnarok's. 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 not obtainable in any version, but is found in all versions.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY The Ragnarok provides 150 Attack, 50% Accuracy, +10 Strength, +10 Stamina, +10 Spirit, and is Holy-elemental. It can be found in a chest in the Depths of the True Moon, guarded by Nova Dragon (known previously as Lord Dragon in the original WiiWare version) or Lunar Odin (in the 3D versions). 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. It can be equipped by Cecil, Ceodore, and Kain.

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 original release, obtained by defeating Shinryu in the Interdimensional Rift. It can also be stolen from the back section of the final boss.

In the Advance remake, the Ultima Weapon, obtained by defeating Neo Shinryu, is far stronger than Ragnarok. In addition 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, which is the esper Ragnarok. He offers to turn the magicite into a sword, or leave it as it is. While turning it into a sword makes it more difficult to learn Ultima, the most powerful spell (purification of the Cursed Shield is required), the sword can be traded for the Lightbringer in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum, the most powerful weapon.

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. It 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

VII 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 the Outer Island Chocograph 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 Add Status, Ragnarok can inflict Slow with 30% chance.

Final Fantasy XEdit

X 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

XI 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 versions, it now provides 117 Attack, 20 Evade, 35 CT, 8% combo rate, has a 25% chance of inflicting Immobilize on a target, and requires the Greatswords 4 license for 100 LP. It is a reward for the Ixion hunt. It can only be equipped by the Red Battlemage and Knight.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

XIV The Ragnarok is an axe, and 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 XVEdit



Noctis wields the Ragnarok.

Ragnarok is a one-handed sword a included in the 1.05 patch for Season Pass holders. The weapon has a red glow and makes Noctis glow red when warping with it (similar to the final boss), as opposed to the usually blue effects.

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

It is found with Treasure Hunter in the The Switchback stage of the Midlight's Deep and is obtained after fighting Hashmal.

A sword with a 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.

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, and would live again in a new world of plenty and just existence.


  • Ragnarok's incarnation as a knight sword or holy sword stands curiously in juxtaposition of other swords of Norse and Germanic origin, such as the Balmung or the Valhalla, which are portrayed as dark swords. Ragnarok may thus represent a new, shining beginning and the end of a perceived dark, "pagan" world, this probably coming for the common mistranslation of the word Ragnarok as "Twilight of the Gods".
