Fran using Dark Energy on a Hyena.

Dark Energy is an extremely rare item exclusive to the Zodiac versions of Final Fantasy XII. It is considered the most powerful offensive item since it consistently deals 50,000 damage to any enemy within range.

It can be purchased once from the Bazaar by selling Bat Wing x1, Grimoire Aidhed x3, and Grimoire Togail x3.

It can also be acquired from treasures in Mt Bur-Omisace, Archades and Cerobi Steppe with the Diamond Armlet equipped. All of these chests respawn but the chance of acquiring Dark Energy from them is low due to the chests spawning rarely and the chance of acquiring gil rather than the Dark Energy being 80%.

Using Dark Energy does not require charging. Dark Energy deals 50,000 damage to all visible foes and uses the same animation as a Megalixir.


In physical cosmology and astronomy, dark energy is a hypothetical form of energy that permeates all of space and tends to accelerate the expansion of the universe.
