Aeshma is an enemy from Final Fantasy X-2. It bares similarities with Varuna from Final Fantasy X.



Aeshma is immune to physical attacks, and can cast the powerful Flare spell and use Emblem of Thanatos.


The party should hit it with its strongest spells or special attacks, such as a Dark Knight's Darkness.

Creature Creator

Aeshma comes knowing Firaga, Cure, and Drain. It also has Ailment Def., which protects it from any status ailment. Like the two forms before it, it has high Magic, Magic Def., Accuracy, and Agility. Its Strength and Defense are mediocre, and its Luck and Evasion are low. Unlike an enemy Aeshma, this one is not immune to physical attacks.

Like its predecessors, Daeva and Aka Manah, it has no life readings. Its age is 10. As such, it has developed linguistic abilities. It claims to be an envoy from the fiend world, a world between Spira and the Farplane.

At the conclusion of its fiend tale, Aeshma dies but is not reborn stronger this time. A Jahi arises from its pyreflies and provokes Shinra to prove his mettle by raising its power.


Aeshma is the Younger Avestan name of Zoroastrianism's demon of "wrath." As a hypostatic entity, Aeshma is variously interpreted as "wrath," "rage," and "fury."
