- "I told you I was the guardian of the world of dream, didn't I?"
- —Unei, upon reminding Luneth of her visit to his dream.
One of the great Magus Noah's students, Unei was given the power of the Dream World. However, due to this, she has been kept in eternal sleep. Unei first appears immediately after the death of Aria, where she tells the Light Warriors in their dreams to visit Doga. Later on, The Warriors of the Light are able to wake her with Noah's Lute.
Despite having been asleep, Unei was fully conscious in the Dream World but was unable to return back to the Waking World, due to time having stopped on the other side by Xande. Therefore, she was forced to live in the Dream World for 1000 years. She was fully aware of the events were happening in the Waking World. She leads the party to the Ancient Ruins and destroys the rocks blocking the party's path in order to claim the airship Invincible.
Then, she informs the party that they must head to the Cave of Shadows, in order to obtain the last fang needed to break Xande's Statues that prevent the party from accessing the Ancients' Maze. She then leaves the party and joins Doga at his manor.
After the party obtains the Fang of Earth, the party finds Unei at Doga's Grotto, where the party fights the two apprentices of Noah. Unei then dies, although her soul remains eternal.
- Main article: Unei (Boss)
Unei is fought as a boss. Players fight her directly after fighting Doga. She can cast Aeroga and Tornado on the party, as well as do physical attacks.
Unei appears in Final Fantasy Trading Card Game. Her card is earth-elemental.
Though romanized differently, Unei's name is likely a reference to Dr. Unne from the original Final Fantasy, as both are written using the exact same kana in Japanese (ウネ). Besides this, they are otherwise completely unrelated characters.
- Due to both Doga and Xande's minds and bodies having been frozen in time on the Surface World, Unei has the distinction of being the oldest lived mentally of the three students of Noah, since her mind had lived a thousand years more than her colleagues.
- The parrot sitting on her shoulder is absent in the DS remake. But only in the model, since the first dialogue after she wakes up imply that the parrot remain in her shoulder.
- In Final Fantasy IX there is a message on the Bulletin Board in Mount Gulug from "Une the Mole". There is also an item called "Une's Mirror".
- In Final Fantasy Tactics there is a quest in Zeltenia castle's tavern after the fight in Eagrose, the requester is called Unei.
- One of the Mixes from the aborted Transmuter job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift is named "Une's Wrath" (ウネの怒り, Une no Ikari?).
