  • In Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, the weapon's first appearance since Final Fantasy VII, the rod's enhancements to wind, water and earth attacks may refer to Aerith being a Cetra, who are deeply in tune with the Planet, as well as the fact during development Aerith was intended to be a Geomancer.
