The Sacrifice is an enemy that appears in Final Fantasy XIII. They are found in Edenhall and Orphan's Cradle.


Debuffs work quite well on the Sacrifices and help to keep them under control, especially in larger groups. A Cherub's Crown or the upgraded Seraph's Crown can be equipped for protection against the Death spell these enemies can cast, although Death has a low base chance of hitting. Players should be aware of Sacrifice's Anathema ability, which can inflict several status ailments.

Death deals quite a bit of damage, regardless of having the Shell buff on or not. This can be a threat to low-HP characters like Hope.

Aerora shouldn't be too much of a bother if the Vigilance buff is active, as this will prevent characters from getting knocked off their feet.

It's also best to have characters that know Fog, Fogga, Pain, and/or Painga. Vanille, Fang, and Snow, if he's reached Level 2 of the Saboteur role, are best fit for this situation.

It's even better to have a Ribbon at hand as it partially prevents status ailments against Deshell, Poison, Imperil, Slow, and Defaith.


Sacrifices often drop Perfume, an item which can be sold for 12,500 gil. These enemies rarely drop Scarletite, an upgrade catalyst, but they are also useful for obtaining gil, selling for 7,000 gil each.

Sacrifices are a considerable source for obtaining gil at the game's end, as they are easy to defeat in comparison to stronger enemies such as the Adamantoise. Sacrifices also appear in larger numbers, resulting in better drop chances.

It is a good idea to equip a Collector Catalog and Connoisseur Catalog to further increase the odds of obtaining Perfumes and Scarletites.

The Cavalry transformed.

  • Sacrifices are similar in appearance to Cid Raines's Cie'th-human hybrid form (due to their metallic, silver bodies, and long, black claws). This may be due to their mutual nature as Sanctum l'Cie that later became Cie'th.
  • It is the only enemy in the game that uses a full ATB skill, specifically, Death.
