I see you've begun to understand my glorious existence here. Yet, perhaps it is best you see for yourselves my power... Power that held the whole world in fear... The power of the Void!Enuo
Enuo is an unseen character in the original Final Fantasy V, but it finally appeared as a superboss in Final Fantasy V Advance, the Android, iOS and Steam releases. Enuo is a legendary wizard from a thousand years ago who tried to harness the power of the Void. The scepter Enuo wields is called Enuo's Scourge, and has appeared as a weapon related to Exdeath since Dissidia Final Fantasy.
Enuo is a purple-skinned man with lavender tentacles wrapped around his torso. His helmet has two large red horns as well as couple smaller, dark and gold-tipped horns alongside them. He wears spiky jewel-encrusted shoulder guards and multicolored robes in orange, red, white, lavender, and purple with golden saw-tooth shape trim at the hem. He has wrapped a chain of beads holding up partial skeletons around his waist, consisting of two skulls and ribcages. He is muscular and has white eyes and red claws. He wields a scepter with ghastly faces at the base of the prongs.
Enuo is a power-hungry wizard, trading even his immortality to fully control the Void. In his megalomania he wreaked havoc all over Planet R, and though he is now sealed in the Sealed Temple, he seems to enjoy his existence there as the ultimate, most powerful being and ruler of the temple.
One thousand years ago Enuo, an immortal wizard, traded his immortality for control over the Void. With the power of nothingness under his control, he wreaked havoc across Planet R until he was defeated by the power of the twelve Sealed Weapons and consumed by the Void. The Void was contained in the Interdimensional Rift, and the Crystals of element that sustain the world, were split so the world itself would split in two.
Once the planet was split, the entrance to the Rift became caught out of reach in the space between the worlds, so that no evil could use the dark power of the Void again. Though he was consumed by the Void, Enuo's essence lives on in the Sealed Temple within the Void itself.
A common misconception is that Enuo was sealed in the tree that later became Exdeath. This is not supported by any information given in-game about Enuo, and contradicts statements from non-playable characters in the Phantom Village that Enuo was consumed by the Void.
Enuo's card appears in Final Fantasy Artniks.
Enuo appears in Final Fantasy Trading Card Game as Dark- and Lightning-elemental Forward cards.
Behind the scenes
In earlier story drafts, Enuo played a more prominent role, being an incarnation of evil who controlled the power of nothingness and sought to destroy the world. The legendary warriors eventually sealed him away in another dimension. During the events of the game, Exdeath would destroy the crystals to open the path to resurrect Enuo. During the finale, Enuo would be revived and Exdeath would transform into a branch to enter his body, becoming Neo Exdeath. These ideas were scrapped during development.
When it was decided that Enuo would appear in the Advance version, Tetsuya Nomura, who was responsible for monster designs for Final Fantasy V, was brought back to design Enuo's appearance. Enuo's appearance combines design elements of Exdeath's base and final boss forms.
エヌオー (Enu Ō?) is the transliteration of the English letters "N" and "O" into Japanese.
