BattleEdit

Yang has high Magic Defense and powerful spells, but has low physical Defenses. After running out of MP or is below 1/8th of it's Max HP, Yang will commit suicide dealing massive damage on one party member.

Yang responds to physical attacks by increasing its Attack stat by 10, and to magical attacks by increasing its Magic atk stat by 10. These increases stop when these stats reach or exceed 255.

This means in the Shinra Mansion, Yang's Attack stat of 5 can increase 25 times up to 255, and Magic atk stat of 32 can increase 23 times up to 262. In the Battle Square, Yang's Attack stat of 6 can increase 25 times up to 256, and Magic atk stat of 40 can increase 22 times up to 260.

StrategyEdit

The player should use physical attacks against Yang before it will commit suicide, and then go after Ying.

EtymologyEdit

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang are concepts used to describe how apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent giving rise to each other as they interrelate. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, and male and female) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality of yin and yang. This duality lies at the origins of many branches of classical Chinese science and philosophy, as well as being a primary guideline of traditional Chinese medicine, and a central principle of different forms of Chinese martial arts and exercise.

Yin is the negative/passive/female principle in nature, and may allude to many other concepts e.g. the moon, shaded orientation, something covert or concealed, "of the netherworld", overcast or sinister.

Yang is the positive/active/male principle in nature, and may allude to many other concepts e.g. the sun, open, overt, and "belonging to this world".

TriviaEdit

  • Tetsuya Nomura has said in the August 1997 issue of EGM magazine that Ying/Yang is his favorite enemy design in Final Fantasy VII.
