Shiva is a boss fought in Final Fantasy X. She is fought in three instances: a one-on-one aeon duel between Yuna and Belgemine at the Calm Lands and later at the Remiem Temple, as well as the final battle inside Sin.

Yuna is given an opportunity to fight Shiva at the Calm Lands in an aeon battle with Belgemine. The player must beat Shiva and all of Belgemine's aeons to receive the Aeon's Soul item that will enable aeon development. The player will also receive 30 Power Spheres. Every other battle won against her will earn 30 Speed Spheres. Furthermore, the player needs to beat Belgemine at Remiem Temple to obtain the Moon Sigil, in conjunction with 60 Mega-Potions. Every other battle won will earn the player 6 Star Curtains.

BattleEdit

In the first battle, the opposing Shiva has 15,000 HP and 900 MP. She absorbs any ice attacks, and is immune to status ailments and any break attacks.

At the Remiem Temple battle she has 20,000 HP and 950 MP. Her immunities, weaknesses and absorptions are the same.

Yuna also encounters Shiva as an enemy inside Sin. Shiva's stats are identical to that of when being summoned, except for MP and Luck which are both always 1.

Shiva's attacks are comprised of her usual physical attack, Heavenly Strike and Diamond Dust, as well as Blizzara and/or Blizzaga depending on which battle. Heavenly Strike inflicts Threaten in the Calm Lands battle, a weak delay in the Inside Sin battle, and a moderate delay in the Remiem Temple battle. In the Calm Lands battle, Shiva does not use Diamond Dust, but merely uses Heavenly Strike as her overdrive.

StrategyEdit

Simplest strategy is to summon Bahamut with the Overdrive gauge fully or close to fully charged. His Overdrive should be enough to kill her.

In the battle within Sin, a good method is to use Lulu, Yuna, and Auron. Yuna should heal and cast NulFrost, Lulu should use Reflex, and Auron should use Armor, Magic, and Mental Breaks on her.

An alternate method is to use equipment with Ice Eater, Iceproof or Ice Ward and simply attack.

TriviaEdit

Shiva in her Calm Lands incarnation is the only enemy in the game capable of inflicting the Threaten status, although this is somewhat redundant as aeons are immune to it. Yuna herself is vunerable.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Shiva shares her name with the Hindu god, Shiva (also spelled Śiva). The Hindu Shiva once saved the world by consuming poison, giving him blue skin around the area of the neck and throat. It should also be noted that Shiva is a male god, but can merge with his consort Parvati. Together they become Ardhanari, an androgynous Hindu god of duality, this is the reason why Shiva is sometimes confused as a female (but is indeed a male god). Shiva is also the god of destruction along with Vishnu, who is the god of preservation, and Brahma, the god of creation. Together they are the three principle deities of the Trimurti (Hindu Triad).

Also, in paintings Shiva was frequently mistaken for a woman due to his long hair and facial features. It is believed that he also periodically destroys the world, then recreates it. There is a possibility that the name was simply the Japanese way of pronouncing the word "shiver", which is a possibility given her icy nature. Another possibility is the reference to the Slavic goddess Živa, the goddess of love and fertility.
