Amano Zuu

Zu (ズー, ?), also known as Zuu, is a recurring enemy in the Final Fantasy series, ever since its first appearance in Final Fantasy IV. It is a gigantic black bird. Zus have high HP and utilize strong physical attacks. In later games they often appear in the same genus as the Garuda.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy IVEdit

IV

FF4PSP Zu

Zus normally appear around Mysidia in either the forests, or plains, and are easily dispatched due to their weakness of death and Cecil's recent acquisition of the Deathbringer. A stronger version of Zu, known as the Rukh, can be encountered around the Eblan area, though they do not pose much more of a threat than a Zu at the time they can be encountered. Rukhs are green.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY

Zus are rather strong when encountered in each tale, and can attack twice. Upon defeat, they relinquish valuable items. Zu is also fought as a boss in Izayoi's section of Edge's Tale, but due to HP and MP restoring pots placed throughout the area, as well as save points, it is easy to level grind since the enemies give decent EXP. As there are no party members to divide EXP between, it can therefore can be defeated without much effort.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Zus appear around Karnak up to the Library of the Ancients. They are moderately powerful enemies at the time they are fought, and offer a great deal of EXP and gil.

Zu means "fire" in the Sumerian language. Anzû, before misread as Zû, is a lesser divinity or monster in several Mesopotamian religions. He was conceived by the pure waters of the Apsu and the wide Earth, or as son of Siris. Anzû was seen as a massive bird who can breathe fire and water, although Anzû is alternately seen as a lion-headed eagle (like a reverse griffin).
