Valefor-FFX

Valefor (ヴァルファーレ, Varufāre?) is a recurring summon in the Final Fantasy series. She is a flying summon that first appeared as an aeon in Final Fantasy X as Yuna's first aeon, and has been associated with her since.

Valefor's fayth, a teenage girl, is located within the temple of Besaid. She is Yuna's first aeon. Valefor's regular attack is a quick swipe of her taloned feet, enhanced by her high Accuracy. Unlike other aeons, Valefor is unique in not having the piercing auto-ability, and also has a slightly lower attack power. This has no impact when using the Attack command, as the aeons use a different version of this command which has built-in Piercing itself and carries the normal attack power. Any Skills used by Valefor will be affected. No other aeon lacks Piercing in this way, but Shiva does share the lower attack power.

Due to how she remains airborne, some enemies have separate attack patterns against Valefor than they do against characters or even against other aeons. These are often in Valefor's favor; using only weak or easily-evadable attacks, or even not attacking at all. This can make such daunting enemies as Demonolith much easier to defeat.

Valefor has the unique ability Sonic Wings, which sends a shock wave at an enemy, deals damage and inflicts Delay. Because of the short recovery time the player can often hit enemies repeatedly with Sonic Wings with little or no retaliation.

Yuna and Valefor.

Valefor is the only aeon to have two Overdrives. The default Overdrive is Energy Ray: Valefor fires a super-charged beam that explodes underneath the foes and deals non-elemental damage. Her second Overdrive, Energy Blast, is obtained by speaking to a young girl in Besaid Village and inspecting her dog to receive "something mangled and slobbery". For Energy Blast, Valefor fires a number of destructive beams, damaging all enemies. Energy Blast deals more damage than Energy Ray, but has a longer recovery time. If Yuna has the Nirvana Celestial Weapon and has upgraded it with at least the crest, Valefor will gain Break Damage Limit and her attacks will be able to inflict over 9,999 damage.

There are symbols of the Yevon script that are associated with a particular aeon. The symbol for Valefor and Besaid is annotated with the kanji for nothing (, mu?). Emptiness, mu, is a Zen Buddhist concept expressing negation of the self, selflessness, innocence and purity of soul. These are traits a summoner must achieve to succeed in defeating Sin. Buddhist concept of nothingness may also be associated with the element of air. Valefor is a flying aeon whose main attack is non-elemental and delays the opponent's turn, traits that also fit this theme.

Valefor's weapon (not usually viewable in game) initially has only one ability, simply titled -, which gives immunity to all negative statuses except Curse and Eject. Once the Nirvana is powered up with the Moon Crest, Valefor's weapon also gains Break Damage Limit. Valefor's armor contains Sensor, Break HP Limit, and Break MP Limit.

Boss

Belgemine summons Valefor in the Remiem Temple as a way to train Yuna. Isaaru summons his Valefor, which he calls Pterya, as one of Yuna's trials at the Via Purifico. Yuna summons Valefor Inside Sin after being possessed by Yu Yevon.

In the PAL, International, and Final Fantasy X HD Remaster versions, Dark Valefor is an optional boss fought at the entrance to the village of Besaid after Yuna and the party escape from Bevelle.


Final Fantasy X-2Edit

Valefor, along with the other Final Fantasy X aeons, is possessed by Shuyin's hatred and appears as a boss in the Besaid Temple during Chapter 3.

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

A recreation of Valefor makes an appearance at Nautilus's Pompa Sancta parade. In the play, the Cocoon l'Cie transforms into it to face Ragnarok.


Final Fantasy XIVEdit

Valefor is mentioned during the Mor Dhonan sidequest "Short Arms of Law". Once the Adventurer defeats Gagarua's gang to protect the Doman kids, the Lalafell leader "summons" Primal Valefor, but actually, it was a trick to distract them and escape, so Valefor is not really summoned.

Valefor is also the name of a server in Final Fantasy XIV.

Final Fantasy All the BravestEdit

Valefor is the sole aeon that Yuna can summon in Final Fantasy All the Bravest. It performs Energy Ray when summoned.

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit

Valefor is called during Yuna's "Grand Summon I" Default Soul Break, dealing 110% non-elemental magic damage at the cost of one Soul Gauge segment. At ~600 damage at level 70, the Soul Break is poor. Issaru's Pterya appears as a boss in the Record of Via Purifico Maze. In addition, Valefor exists separately as a 4-Star Summoning ability that can be called by other characters, dealing non-elemental damage. While many summon Soul Breaks in the game use summon moves the same as that of the Ability summon, Valefor's animation is different. While Yuna's "Grand Summon I" uses Energy Blast, the Summoning Ability uses Energy Ray and hits twice.

TriviaEdit

Valefor ff creatures kai vol 1

Valefor from Final Fantasy Creatures Kai Vol 1.

  • An action figure of the Final Fantasy X Valefor exists as part of the Final Fantasy Creatures Kai Vol 1 series.
  • Dark Valefor is also the only Dark Aeon who cannot break the Damage Limit with her normal attacks.
  • The airship Valfarre in Final Fantasy XII is based on the summon Valefor.
  • One of names available for monsters in Final Fantasy XIII-2 is Valefor.
  • In Final Fantasy X, if the damage limit is ignored (or has not yet been reached), Valefor's second overdrive Energy Blast is one of the most powerful attacks in the game. Additionally, it is the strongest attack that is reliable; all stronger attacks either can be reduced by the enemy's defense (Attack Reels), are only stronger than Energy Blast when landing a critical hit (Nova), or both (Blitz Ace).
