Zu is an enemy from Final Fantasy X-2. It is one of Spira's largest flying fiends, having been rumored to carry shoopufs off in their talons. With their tremendous wings they send shock waves crashing into their enemies.

Stats Edit



Battle Edit

They are not terribly difficult to defeat normally, but are more powerful in Oversoul, as, at best, their Chicken Wing Lv. 3. removes 75% of the party's HP in the original version, and at worst, instantly defeat the player party in the HD Remaster version. They always appear alone.

Strategy Edit

In the HD Remaster, it is best to defeat it immediately and equip deathproof abilities when the Zu is in Oversoul. In all versions, it is recommended to cast Protect as soon as possible to reduce the amount of damage it can do.

Creature Creator Edit

Fiend Tale Edit

One notable Zu was created from the spirit of a treasure hunter who was killed by a Claret Dragon while venturing up Mt. Gagazet in search of treasure. Returning to the mountain to recover his memory, Zu crosses paths with the Claret Dragon and defeats him. Soon after, having achieved his goal to return to the site of his death, Zu departs to the Farplane while leaving the earned treasure to Yuna.

Etymology Edit

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).
