Musical themesEdit

Her battle theme consists of three parts. The first phase is called Nightbloom, featuring a remix of the iconic Stormblood track Revolutions. Starting up with powerful wind instrumentals and leading up to melancholic string and piano portions, it almost alludes a twist in the intertwined nature of Tsukuyomi's host about committed atrocities compared to a tragic past. Lunacy accompanies the second phase, using loops of piano and chords in a medium-paced, more resolved melody.

Wayward Daughter is played as the third and final phase unfolds. It features mixed female and male chorus singing English and Japanese lyrics to a more rock opera-like hymn.

EtymologyEdit

Tsukuyomi or Tsukiyomi-no-Mikoto (月読命) is the moon god in Shinto and Japanese mythology. The moon was considered a male deity, brother and consort of the sun goddess Amaterasu. The kanji for Tsukuyomi mean "moon" and "read".

Tsukuyomi in Final Fantasy XIV has a pair of bunny-like ears on her head, this might be a reference to Lady Kaguya, the princess of the moon from another folklore. Another possibility is it might be an allusion to the folklore of rabbits on the moon.

TriviaEdit

  • Tsukuyomi is one of the five Primals who have been summoned into a certain individual or structure as their host. The others are Shiva, Phoenix, King Thordan, and Alexander.
