Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is a free-to-play role-playing game developed by A-Lim and published by Square Enix for iOS and Android devices. The story follows the journey of Rain, Lasswell and Fina in their battle to protect the great crystals of Lapis. Thanks to the power of visions, it features characters that have appeared in previous games in the series, such as Cecil Harvey, Shadow and Exdeath.

The game marks as the first collaborative effort between Square Enix and A-Lim and draws elements from A-Lim's previous game, Brave Frontier. It was released first in Japan in October 22, 2015. The global version soft-launched in May 12, 2016 in several countries before being released officially in June 29, 2016. The global version of the game is maintained by a Singapore subsidiary of A-Lim's parent company, gumi.

On September 8, 2017, Square Enix released a spin-off game named Final Fantasy Brave Exvius Tap! for Facebook.[1] Due to low interest, Tap! has been removed from the platform as of mid-2019.

On December 2, 2018 Square Enix announced another spin-off game based on Brave Exvius called War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, which is a tactical RPG.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

World[edit | edit source]

The world map is presented as a series of fixed contact points, with a fixed set of dungeons (battles) located in each area. The player must fight through all of the battles in a given stage, expending associated energy per round, to unlock and advance to the next stage. Clearing all required dungeons will advance the story to the next waypoint, and gives a one-time reward of 100 Lapis (the game's premium currency).

Towns may be freely explored and dungeons that are already cleared can be replayed if desired. In "explorations", the player can traverse a given area for treasure and other items, but will also encounter random monsters. Entrances and exit points are marked on each area map: yellow for individual rooms and stairs, green for the entrance, and red for the exit.

Battle system[edit | edit source]

A typical battle scene.

The game uses a turn-based combat chain system that is thus far unique among series titles. This is attributed to the A-Lim company's involvement, as a similar chaining system is implemented in their game, Brave Frontier. The player may select a party of up to five units and a companion unit (or "friend") to deploy in battle, each with his or her own unique skill sets. When in battle, the player can select actions for the units to perform by swiping the units' panels in different directions. With an action selected, tapping a unit's panel will immediately execute the chosen action.

To set a battle command, the player can bring up a command window depending on the direction flicked:

  • Up - Default attack.
  • Right - Abilities. One can select a spell (which can be White, Black or Green Magic), a special ability, a Limit Burst or an evocation.
  • Left - Items. The unit can use one of ten items set at the battle inventory, selected by the player before the battle.
  • Down - Defend. Decreases the enemy's attack damage by half.

The player is also allowed to strike multiple targets in the same turn, targeting the enemy by tapping on them. (Party members can be targeted by holding tap to a desired unit and, once a detail window pops up, by tapping "Target" button.) Enemies can do the same during their turns, so preparing a strategy turn-to-turn is critical to success. The same goes for unit selection: According to their skill set, units perform one or more roles in battle—Physical Damage, Magic Damage, Hybrid Damage, Tank, Healing, Support—and must be carefully selected as the player accesses harder content.

Chaining can be achieved by tapping panels in quick succession, and combining the units' attacks. There are two types of chains: Spark Chains (attacking with multiple units at exactly the same time) and Element Chain (attacking with multiple units using attacks of the same element). It is important to note that since every character's attack animation speed is different as well as the number of hits involved, timing when each unit should strike is crucial to chaining accurately. With proper equipment and specialized chaining partners (two or more units that chain adequately or perfectly), the player can deal up to millions of damage under the right conditions.

Winning a battle does not have immediate rewards as in typical Final Fantasy games. Instead, all materials collected and experience points gained are tallied at the end of a story battle round, or at the end of an expedition.

Vortex[edit | edit source]

At the Home screen, the Dimensional Vortex (which in truth, is located at the Farplane) offers different features for players. Following the update to Version 2.3.0, it is categorized in three different tabs: Event, Enhance and Nemeses. In the Event tab periodically appear events (usually with a two-week duration), which allow the player acquire rare items and improve their units's development. There are several types of events, though the most common are those sponsored by King Mog and the collaborative raids.

The Enhance tab contains four different chamber, with a fifth added every weekends, which the player can battle through to obtain gil, experience points, crafting materials or awakening materials, and occasionally, utility units to be used to enhance units. Every day, one Chamber of the player's choice can be opened at no cost, while unlocking others during the same day requires 100 Lapis per dungeon.

Finally, the Nemeses tab contains the Chamber of the Fallen, containing a series of single-level dungeons with very powerful bosses called trials, which can be challenged at the player's discretion. Rewards such as high-end equipment can be obtained for defeating these bosses the first time. It also allows easy access to the Chamber of Arms, where endgame "10-man trials" (which work with the Swap Battle mechanics) take place. Training the Soul, to be completed with story units only, is also available.

Other modes[edit | edit source]

By using arena/colosseum orbs which are refilled every hour, the player can access the Arena and the Colosseum. At the Arena, the player fights against AI controlled units of other players and accumulate points by winning against them. Consecutive wins increases the amount of points one receives. These points are used in a weekly and monthly leaderboard, giving better rewards the higher one ranks. Whereas the Colosseum is a mode that pitches the player against different monsters. Both the Arena and the Colosseum have several limitations for the player: consumable items, Lapis continues and friend units cannot be used.

Expeditions is a mode that allows units to be sent on expeditions, which must be funded with gil and party of up to five units, to bring back treasure. Each expedition lasts for a specified period of time, the maximum being a entire day, and up to four expeditions may be running at the same time. Each expedition is ranked by difficulty (the lowest being D-rank and the highest being S-rank), with higher ranks requiring a higher number of more powerful units to complete. Each expedition has a different bonus requirement, and units that meet its requirement will gain a higher success rate.

Characters[edit | edit source]

Season Two cast artwork by Yoshitaka Amano.

The game's story follows the main cast, whose units are acquired by the player as they progress through the narrative. However, these units do not need to be used at all to complete the story and the player can summon a myriad of miscellaneous units (original to the game's lore or lifted from other games in the series) to build their parties.

  • Lid is an airship engineer from Dirnado determined to inherit the name Cid who guides the party to the Wind Shrine.
  • Nichol is a tactician from the Olderion Federation, who meets the party at a time where he must protect his homeland from monsters due to the defilement of his country's sacred waters.
  • Jake is the womanizer leader of the rebel army opposing the Zoldaad Empire's tyrannical ruler.
  • Sakura, who despite her childlike appearance, is the centuries-old founder of Magi Nation Mysidia, and seeks the party out to give them some answers to their enemies' mysterious pasts.
  • Veritas of the Dark is a mysterious armor-clad man who seeks the destruction of the crystals scattered across the world, and the leader of the Sworn Six of Paladia.

The game opens with Rain and Lasswell aboard their airship as they battle a horde of monsters. Perplexed by the monsters' strange behavior, a young woman trapped in a crystal appears before them and begs assistance from them. She leads them to the Earth Shrine, where the Earth Crystal is under attack by Veritas of the Dark. He proves to be a formidable foe, destroying the crystal despite their opposition. As the two knights lie defeated, the girl reappears, grants the power of visions so that they may save the world and teleports them outside the crumbling shrine. As Rain and Lasswell find their men killed and airship destroyed by Veritas, they decide to journey on foot to Royal Capital Grandshelt and report the events to the King of Grandshelt.

On their way to the castle, they find it under siege, burning down by mysterious figures known as the Sworn Six of Paladia lead by Veritas of the Dark, who tries to kill the knights. Rain is saved by Fina, the mysterious girl that was trapped in the Crystal and who has no memories of herself. The trio travel the world intending to put a stop to the Veritas' rampage. Traveling to Lanzelt Ruins, they come across Veritas of the Dark who was retrieve powerful artifact known as the Sacred Ring of Paladia. The trio come close to defeat him, but the Darklord manages to overpower them and take his leave.

The trio then travels towards Dirnado where they meet the young engineer Lid who is hopeful to inherit the title of Cid as the best engineer. On their way they find Veritas of the Heavens who has been kidnapping Dwarves for an unknown purpose. Joined by Lid, the party comes across Evan, Lid's older brother who is on the servitude of the Heavenlord and repairing an ancient, powerful airship known as the Invincible. Trying to protect the Wind Crystal, the party faces the Heavenlord, unmasking him as Cid, the legendary airship engineer for whom future engineers are titled after on his honor. Cid destroys the Wind Crystal, unleashing The Heart of Babel a device needed to power their airship for their machinations.

The group makes their next stop at the Olderion Federation where they encounter the strategist Nichol and their brother Elle, who are in search for their sister, the Water Priestess Luka who can purify the waters to deter the increase of monster activity. After finding Luka, the party comes across Veritas of the Waters a sadistic mage who has wounded the Leviathan polluting the waters of the nation. Through Luka's help, Leviathan comes back to its senses and forces the Waterlord to retreat, however, she would attempt to flood Olderion and kill its populace. Fina fights her and regains her memories, adopting the persona of Dark Fina. With the help of pirate captain, Mercedes the party is able to go to the Water Shrine to protect the Water Crystal from the Waterlord, but Rain awakens a mysterious power that is too much for him to handle and threatens his life. Elle dies in combat but his death prevents the trap the Waterlord had planned, allowing the party to defeat her. Dark Fina uses the remaining power of the Water Crystal to restore Olderion to normal and saving Rain, but Luka must pray underwater to purify the waters. Nichol decides to join the party.

The group heads to the militarized nation of Zoldaad who is in the midst of a civil war with a rebel faction. The party is coerced to join by the rebel leader Jake in order to save Grandshelt from an invasion. With Jake's help they sabotage key facilities. The party faces Veritas of the Flame who easily defeats the party and is reveals he crafted Lasswell's blade that has hidden potential. On their way to chase the Flamelord, Lasswell sustains grievous injuries he keeps hidden. The party battles the Flamelord and are able to win through Lasswell's determination to win that unlocks his blade's power, but collapses from his injuries. The Darklord restores all fighters to their top condition and a new battle ensues, with the party's victory. Jake, however, destroys the Fire Crystal in order to save his nation, releasing Bahamut the strongest Esper from its slumber. The party soon comes to a direct confrontation against Zoldaad dictator, Sozhe who is in truth, controlled by Dr. Lazarov, a mad scientist obsessed with immortality. After freeing crown prince Shera, the party is forced to kill Sozhe and soon pursue Dr. Lazarov who attempts to genocide the nation from atop the Invincible but is blasted by Bahamut's Megaflare. The group battles Dr. Lazarov and defeat him, freeing Zoldaad from its reign of terror.

As Jake joins the party they meet Sakura, a deceptively young-looking old mage related to the Veritas who promises to aid the party and on her request, march towards Mysidia the land of mages. The group comes to face Veritas of the Light and Veritas of the Earth Sakura's older sister and Fina's rival respectively. The Earthlord restores Fina to her older self but at the risk of endangering the other Fina. The party is forced to travel to a memory world in order to rescue Fina, and learning of the Veritas' past in the process as warriors from the nation of Aldore in the world of Paladia who battled the forces of Hess in a bloody global war, and were betrayed by their homeland and sent to Lapis through the power of the Eight Crystals, and their plot to destroy them to return to their world to enact revenge on their former masters, despite the catastrophic consequences for both worlds. The party succeeds in saving Fina, splitting her in her two selves. The party defeats the Lightlord and Earthlord, and now closer to the truth than ever, and learning of Rain's father's involvement in the entire affair. Sakura joins the party.

Their next destination is Gronoa, a continent plagued with toxic miasma and residence of the last, Dark Crystal. Helped by aides of Shera the party survive the deadly miasma. The party come across the Lightlord once more who chastises Sakura for betraying her. As the party defeats her, the Lightlord taunts Rain to kill her revealing she killed her mother, Sophia, but Rain refuses. The party then finds the Dark Elf, a former enemy of the Veritas who turned mad after 700 years of imprisonment. The party tries to stop him but his suicidal devotion to destruction allow him to overpower them. The Lightlord, blasts the former Sage of Hess and destroys him. As both parties prepare for a final battle, Veritas of the Frost a lost member of the Veritas takes a village hostage and forces them to fight in a tournament to determine the strongest and satisfy his bloodlust. Lasswell obtains a massive power boost through disciplined training and easily overpowers his comrades, including Rain and begins to feel guilty over thoroughly beating his adoptive brother, contrary to his inferiority complex. Rain, however awakens his true power and duels Lasswell once more, defeating him with the two coming to terms with one another. The Frostlord then fights the party for the Dark Crystal and is beaten, but soon after the Veritas appear to destroy the last Crystal. The Frostlord is revealed to be none other than Raegen, Rain's father and the true leader of the Sworn Six, leaving the latter to question the Darklord's identity.

A major battle ensues between both parties but as the land begins to collapse they are teleported to the land of Pharm. Nichol boiling with a drive for revenge against the Waterlord's crimes relentlessly pursues his hated enemy, with the party behind him as they terminate the Veritas one by one. Soon Nichol comes across his nemesis who is revealed to be Folka, the first Water Priestess of Olderion and his long ancestor, who uses hypnosis techniques to create a bloodthirsty personality to fight as a warrior. Nichol is unable to claim revenge and ultimately forces her to devote herself to help others as punishment, to which she agrees with. The party eventually find a weakened Lightlord along the Darklord, the only member left capable of fighting. A decisive battle ensues with the party's win exposing the Darklord as a vision of Raegen created by the Lightlord. Their victory, however, is short lived as Sol a former lieutenant of Hess turned a nihilist psychopath by his imprisonment, destroys the Crystal with the intention to annihilate both worlds of Paladia and Lapis, the Darklord dies at the hand of Behemoth K, Sol's companion.

The party goes after Sol to stop him climbing the Land of the Crystals, with little time left as all Crystals have been destroyed. As Fina begins to disappear due to two of her being unable to exist at the same time, Dark Fina with the help of a reformed Lightlord and Waterlord, performs the ultimate sacrifice, turning herself into a new Earth Crystal, allowing Fina to live and granting her the powers of a Sage of Hess allowing the party to advance. They come to face Behemoth K who proves too powerful, so the two Veritas teleport themselves away with him, enabling the party to pass. The party catches up with Sol as he plots to open the Interdimensional Gate that will allow both worlds to collide. Sol is defeated but reveals his trump card, the Chaotic Darkness a monstrous vision made up of humanity's evil with whom he tries to destroy the world.

The powerful Vision creates a bizarre distortion known as the Wandering Lands which the party navigates. The party comes to face Behemoth K who has killed the Veritas and teleported chasing them. Furious over the death of their reformed comrades, the party defeats the weakened beast, who released from his insanity begs the party to kill Sol to save him from himself. The party comes face to face with Sol and his diabolical vision, and manage to defeat both of them after a lengthy battle, Sol retreats vowing to kill Rain, disgusted at his sense of justice. Unfortunately, the Chaotic Darkness mutates into a more monstrous form, before trying to lay waste to Lapis. With the party intending to defeat the horrendous beast, the prayers and hopes of all inhabitants of Lapis irradiate powerful light that weakens the monster, allowing the party to terminate the mutant vision. Before they can celebrate, Rain and Raegen awaken to their hidden power in an attempt to force close the gate and prevent a catastrophe. Sol, however, regaining his strength tries to ram himself against the Gate to force it wide open. Rain clashes with him and the two disappear as Rain's Crimson Saber falls with the party in disbelief. Lasswell is confident Rain is alive and vows to find him.

Season Two[edit | edit source]

Six months after their climatic battle, the party believes Rain is stranded in Paladia and ready an expedition to find him with the Invincible. To their surprise the Sworn Six of Paladia minus the Darklord appear before them revived by Dark Fina and request to accompany them in order to find closure after 700 years and the party agrees.

Soon after entering Paladia the party learns that the world has been under Aldore's tyrannical rule for 700 long years. Enraged that their homeworld decayed despite their efforts the Sworn Six now led by Raegen take matters into their own hands and decide to topple the Aldore Emperor separating from Lasswell's group who will search for Rain.

The Sworn Six donning their armors succeed in escalating the Aldore Tower the Emperor's seat of power and breach it to the upper floors, but are blocked by the Emperor's lieutenants and their successors The Orders. Although the Sworn Six put a good fight, they are defeated as The Orders guards led by Hyoh of the Delta Star and 4th on the group's hierarchy, possess the Sworn Six's battle data giving them an overwhelming advantage (this is only mentioned in the Japanese Version). Hyoh has them thrown into prison.

Meanwhile as Lasswell's group struggles to find clues for Rain while they were forced to split even further, they are attacked by Galas of the Omicron Star of the Orders ranking 15th in the group's hierarchy. Although the party puts a good fight, he soon unleashes his true power and overwhelms them, but are saved by a mysterious man known as Akstar who mocks Lasswell's weakness and gives him weird nicknames. The party learns of a prison where Rain is believed to be. Lasswell attempts to free the prisoners but the Aldore Guards use the prisoners as hostages to force their surrender, the party, nonetheless escape with Nichol and Sakura's help who disguised as guards and the group reunites. As they prepare to leave the guard once more forces them to surrender. Akstar appears mocking Lasswell for his lack of strength and uses the Obliterating Mirror of Equity a stronger version of Raegen's signature technique, to defeat all the guards while leaving the hostage intact. The party is forced to face Galas who dreams of all the gains he can make by killing the party but is himself bested and killed by Akstar disgusted at his dishonor. Lasswell requests Akstar to teach him, to which the latter eventually agrees to.

Meanwhile the Sworn Six's prison cell is mysteriously opened and they manage to escape. Raegen orders the group to abandon their armors as they have been damaged to the point they no longer provide any benefit and to reaffirm their resolve to grow stronger, thankful to their armors for their centuries of servitude. Now with their armors discarded, the group decides to go by their true names, Cid, Folka, Ignacio, Sieghard, and Citra. As they travel to a nearby town they witness the Aldore Tower surrounded by a powerful barrier, so the group decides to disable the barrier by destroying the facilities that power it up. They are then attacked by Mid of the Theta Star a dragoon ranking 8th in the group's hierarchy Mid attacks them into retreating but the Sworn Six are able to fend her off and she retreats. Cid, learns that she is none other than his estranged daughter turned immortal and vows to find her.

Lasswell's group finds a labor camp where Rain could be in and decide to save the prisoners. Akstar believes it to be a bad idea to save people who will betray them for their own skin, and departs the party. As Lasswell is about to free them the party faces Gudon of the Xi Star the 14th ranking member of the Orders and the sadistic warden of the labor camp who took advantage of the prisoner's fear to set up a trap. He easily swats the party away with his machine's wrecking ball mocking his intentions to save the prisoners all too willing to betray him. Lasswell reaffirms his convictions causing the same prisoners to now try to defend him but Gudon swats them away. Akstar appears glad that Lasswell was right and encourages the party to stand up, which in turn defeats Gudon.

As the Sworn Six are en route to one of the barrier facilities they are blocked by Mid herself who tries to convince them to stay away from Paladia by force if necessary. Cid refuses to leave his daughter again and the two duel with Cid's victory. Raegen disables the facility and Mid departs feeling conflicted.

Individually both parties set their next destination in the continent of Gungan, the only continent that is spared from Aldore's power grip. Lasswell's group find the beastwoman Kunshira and save her from other beastmen. She then explains that Gungan is victim of a civil war between two groups of beastmen, the Naturia who revere nature and the Shibyra who revere technology and leads them to the Naturia capital. There they meet King Yaksha of the Naturia who cannot provide clues towards Rain and that the country may be reaching a breaking point in an eventual conflict with Shibyra despite attempts at negotiation. The party decides to aid the Naturia in trying to solve matters without violence with Kunshira hinting at something happening at the hunting grounds that was deemed forbidden by the King. The party investigates and finds a dry desert devoid of life and learn that King Yaksha was hiding the truth in order to prevent a panic and reach an agreement with the Shibyra whose technology could aid them. Much to their surprise, the party find none other than Sol in the desert. Suspicious, Lasswell engages in battle with the party behind him. Before he can attack further, Akstar interferes preventing Lasswell from falling into Sol's trap. Sol explains that the phenomenon they see is a natural occurrence of the land's Crystal being drained of the power to sustain life. Sol who is himself looking for Rain to kill him, decides to join the party, feeling his chances will be much higher. Lasswell reluctantly agrees as they can observe Sol from close.

Meanwhile Raegen's group ends up in the Shibyra land where they defeat Naturia Beastmen. They meet with Wong aid to King Palte of the Shibyra who explains the current civil war. Knowing they are the Sworn Six he requests their aid and the group agrees to listen. While on the Shibyra capital they learn that King Palte is a human raised by the previous king. The King explains that he desires a peaceful solution but a terrorist attack amidst the negotiations deeply strained diplomacy as both sides blame the other. The Sworn Six agree to investigate the matter and follow clues into a den of criminals. Before the Sworn Six can extract information from them in a confusing turn of events, Fong appears with the suspects dead. Raegen is suspicious and returns with the rest to the capital.

Tensions flare up on both sides reluctantly both kings are forced to march to the frontlines to wage a full-scale battle. Before a major war takes place, Raegen proposes a battle with representatives from both sides in order to prevent bloodshed with himself as Shibyra's champion. Raegen is surprised to see Sol with the Naturia but Lasswell appears instead as their representative. Father and son fight while explaining each other's circumstances. The two sides watch in awe as they learn that they are adoptive parent and son. After a long battle Raegen narrowly wins and convinces both sides to give them time to find the true culprit as both parties temporarily rejoin with a ceasefire from both tribes.

The party's investigation pits them on a cave where the gunpowder for the terrorist's bomb could be found and find none other than Fong who reveals himself as Nazuu of the Kappa Star, the 10th ranking member of the Orders who plotted for both sides to destroy each other and take over the resources of the whole country for himself. Nazuu reveals himself in possession of "the core" a device developed by King Palte that can restore life energy but plans to use it in reverse mode to drain Gungan of all life dry. The party pursues Nazuu who tries to use an Aldore Reactor to syphon all life from the continent, but is felled by the combined efforts of Lasswell's party and the Sworn Six.

With the matter resolved the two tribes reach a peaceful solution and both Kings in leadership. Lasswell's party and the Sworn Six split once more to pursue their respective goals with their next destination being Crystallis. On another place Hyoh is given the order by the Emperor to terminate Lasswell and his group.

In Crystallis, Raegan's group ends up meeting Franis and Ishil, two members of the Children of Hess, a resistance group hoping to restore Hess to its former glory. The two reveal that Yuraisha, the leader of Hess dubbed the "Mother of Hess", is still alive thanks to the immortality treatment and is being held captive. Raegan feels indebted to Yuraisha because the power-hungry Aldore Emperor at the time, Vlad, was most likely going to kill his son (Raegan) at birth due to being next in line for the throne. Yuraisha saved him and took him in as one of her own, serving as his surrogate mother. However, Raegan feels somewhat guilty due to his actions in the Aldore-Hess war, for turning his back on Hess to end the war.

The group finds Yuraisha chained inside Runferia Castle, greatly weakened after years of captivity. Although they attempt to heal her, Yuraisha declares that her immortality is reaching its limit, and she doesn't have much time left. She doesn't seem to harbor any grudge against Raegan, and is happy that he came. However, she expresses fear that the Hess bloodline may die with her, since there is no blood successor to take the throne. Raegan corrects her, revealing that Yuraisha's grandson, Lasswell, carries Hess blood inside him. They take Yuraisha back, running into Zolulu of the Lambda Star and Delulu of the Mu Star. They force the odd pair to retreat, only to learn later that they've taken the Children of Hess captive; unless Yuraisha turns herself in they'll be killed. Raegan's group decides to accompany Yuraisha, fearing some sort of trap at play.

Along the way Raegan explains to Yuraisha what happened to her blood son, Rowen. The two were like brothers (in similar fashion to Rain and Lasswell), spending much of their time sparring for fun. However, Rowen being one of Hess's Eight Sages meant that Raegan had to face him in battle to end the war. The two decided to make a bet: If Raegan wins, Rowen will go into the crystal. If Rowen wins, Raegan must give up his Purple Lightning. Raegan hails victorious, but he knew that Rowen lost on purpose for the sake of ending the war, so he promises that he'd honor his end of the bargain. After they were banished to Lapis, Raegan sought out Rowen and freed him, but being trapped in the crystal caused him to lose his memories and powers, so Raegan helped him get a new life together. Rowen ends up having a son (Lasswell), but dies some time later to a monster attack. Raegan rushes to the scene but is too late, as he was unable to save his friend. Rowen's memories come back before death, telling Raegan that he still never gave Purple Lightning, so Raegan agrees to give it to his son. Eventually Lasswell's mother passes away, and Raegan is left to take in Lasswell as his own.

Nearing the cave where the two Orders are waiting, the group is intercepted by Mid who warns them that "she" is coming. She tries to stop the group through force out of concern for their safety, but Mid fails and is left to question what she should do by her father. At the cave, Raegan's group learns that Zoululu and Delulu have already killed all of the Children of Hess held captive. The enraged party makes quick work of the duo, but they only laugh because "she" is here to kill them. Mid comes to the party's aid as Yego of Gamma Star, a marlboro rider, appears before the party. The group is quickly overwhelmed by Yego's strength, and only through the aid of Yuraisha's magic giving them a temporary power-up did they faze Yego long enough to escape. However, Yuraisha is on her last legs, unable to stand anymore (with Ignacio opting to carry her). With Yego still in hot pursuit, the group makes their way to a library where Yuraisha can cast a projection magic to spark rebellion - a spell that would certainly cost her life. Cid and Mid hold off Yego while the rest of the group accompanies Yuraisha. She casts the spell, telling the people of Hess that hope is not lost for Hess, and then promptly dies, leaving Raegan to mourn. As Yuraisha is buried by other members of the Hess resistance, Cid arrives declaring that they managed to drive off Yego, but Mid got kidnapped in the process. They head to Visectrum to save her.

Meanwhile, Lasswell's group is searching for Rain with the help of Sol (who has developed the ability to sense his presence). Akstar decides to start training Lasswell seriously, urging him to kill his emotions if he wants to develop true strength. Lasswell is hesitant to do so, believing that his emotions make him stronger. The group ends up a village of Kappas, learning from a girl named Potchi that the Kappas are growing weak because of the nearby barrier station. Potchi comes with the group to destroy the barrier station (helping out Raegan's group in the process since the stations are their target). At the station, Sol begins to wander off, sensing Rain nearby. Lasswell and company give chase, and find Sol facing off against Hyoh. Sol, convinced that Hyoh is Rain, rushes to the attack with his full power, and after a heated battle, ends up tackling Hyoh out of desperation off a cliff. The unconscious Sol dreams about his time with the Sages of Hess, where a less bloodthirsty Sol tells Yuraisha that he can't feel emotions. Eventually Lasswell's group catches up to Sol, once again in the company of Hyoh. Lasswell steps up to fight him on his own, and during their fight he notices that Hyoh fights the exact same way Rain does. Lasswell is convinced that Sol may be right about Hyoh, but Hyoh proves he isn't Rain by rushing forward and stabbing Fina in the gut. Sakura teleports the group away as they examine Fina's wound, which has began to crystalize (making it unable to be healed). Potchi proposes they head to a facility that turns crystals into sand, and they head off, unaware that Hyoh and Nagi of Iota Star are in the area as well.

At the facility, they learn that Potchi is a Whyt, a creature that can use transformation magic. Potchi disguises as an Aldore soldier and helps the party get inside. At the bottom they are set upon by Nagi, who is oddly obsessed with Hyoh and declares she'll go at any length to help him. Afterwards, a defeated Nagi is told to stand down by Hyoh, who confronts Lasswell. The two fight evenly-matched, until Lasswell taps into his power and unleashes the Absolute Mirror of Equity (much to Akstar's surprise). Hyoh's mask breaks off from the attack, and he immediately covers his face. Lasswell asks for Hyoh to at least show his face so he can really know if he's Rain or not, but Hyoh takes the opportunity to strike back and escape with Nagi. Lasswell's group uses the machine to remove the crystal wound from Fina and heal her, while Hyoh is berated by the Aldore Emperor, who is disappointed at his failure. Potchi collapses from the effort of using too much magic, so Lasswell's group heads to the Whyt village to let her rest. Sol senses Hyoh is nearby, and once they enter the village it is mysteriously empty. Suddenly, Hyoh appears and takes out the entire group effortlessly, having gained a massive power boost (but is oddly visibly fatigued). Before the group can be finished off, a hooded figure appears and cuts down Hyoh, causing him to explode in a flash of red light.

The hooded figure reveals himself as none other than Rain himself, who has been actively seeking to defeat the Aldore Emperor after learning about his tyrannical rule. Before they can properly reunite, Rain approaches Sol to settle the score. However, Sol seems oddly disinterested in fighting Rain, and leaves. Later in the night, Rain reveals to the group that the Aldore Order is a tournament being held in Visectrum, and the winner immediately becomes Alpha Star (and thus, the next emperor). Lasswell and the others decide to participate, while Akstar confronts Sol about his decision to not fight Rain. Sol admits that the Rain before him is different than the Rain he fought on Lapis, and then drops his suspicions about Akstar, believing that he too is hiding something - to which Akstar is silent.

In the meantime, Raegan's group heads to the prison in Visectrum where Mid is being held. Mid has made up her mind and decides to join the group after being freed by Cid. Their reunion is cut short as they find Raegan and the others struggling against Yego, who has arrived on the scene. Mid rushes in between the group, telling them that she's talked with Yego and knows that Yego is lonely because she grew up alone. Mid proposes that Yego should join them, and Yego agrees but only if Cid will be her father. Cid is taken back by this, since Mid is already his daughter, so Yego decides to make the decision easier for him and has her marlboro devour Mid. Cid is outraged and attacks Yego, who has become hysterical and begs her "father" not to hit her. A flashback reveals how Yego was raised by marlboros growing up, and that she joined the Orders out of curiosity, having never met another human in her life. Yego tells Cid that he should kill her, but is surprised to see Cid spare her, saying that Mid wouldn't want him killing Yego. Suddenly, the marlboro regurgitates Mid, as Yego never intended to kill her in the first place. Cid makes up his mind and decides that Yego can come with them, allowing Yego to be his daughter (much to her delight). They end up running into Distorque of Zeta Star, Yego's sadistic master during her time in the Orders, and Shamlin of Eta Star, Distorque's meekly obedient disciple. Raegan and company force them to retreat before moving onwards.

The group heads to the final barrier station, only to learn that it has already been destroyed. Raegan's party is set upon by four hooded figures about to attack them, but a fifth voice tells them to stay their attack. They're introduced a middle-aged man named Mombert, and the four hooded figures: Redge, Maemae, Honor and Darish, all kids with potent magical abilities called the "Four Sages of Hess". Mombert reveals his plan to assassinate the Aldore Emperor, and requests the group's aid. He leads them around the continent of Visectrum to four different locations to remove the four magic palings protecting the emperor. Raegan and the others quickly realize that the kids must die in order to remove the palings, to which they immediately object to. Mombert assures them that they were born for this single purpose, as they learn by the final death that the four kids were actually visions created by Mombert. When he was a kid, he and his four friends were tasked with killing the emperor, but failed due to the palings. Being the only one to escape alive, Mombert vowed to see his mission through and remade his friends as visions. With the final paling gone and the party in the area where the emperor is sitting, Mombert throws himself at the emperor and creates a massive explosion of energy. As the dust settles, Mombert's attack is revealed to be in vain as the Emperor holds Mombert in a choke-hold and kills him.

Raegan steps up by himself to confront the emperor, but things quickly go south as the emperor renders all of Raegan's attacks ineffective with mini-palings he formed as the fight progressed. The rest of the group joins in, so the emperor calls in Levnato of Alpha Star to even the playing field. It quickly becomes apparent that the emperor was toying with Raegan's group the whole time for the sake of entertaining the people watching the fight, but before he can finish the group off they get teleported away. Raegan and company end up in Visectrum's capital, where they are met by a member of the Children of Hess named Milo. Milo leads them to the main arena where the finals are being held, and after hearing about Lasswell's status in the tournament, Raegan and the others head to the arena.

Meanwhile, Lasswell's group alongside Rain is heading to participate in the tournament. During one of Lasswell's sparring sessions with Akstar, he unintentionally awakens his Hess blood and defeats Akstar. Sakura, who is watching nearby, expresses her concerns to Rain, since Aldore and Hess blood are incompatible. Rain assures her that it doesn't matter, but she notices a glimmer of doubt in Rain's eyes. At the preliminaries, they meet some contestants like Pris and Atole, The Magus Sisters, and Demoldoa of Epsilon Star. Lasswell's group gets along well with Pris and Atole, two close orphans who plan to win the tournament and make Paladia a better place. However, they end up getting killed by Demoldoa in the preliminaries, much to the party's anger. In the next round, they find The Magus Sisters about to be killed by Demoldoa so he can advance. Lasswell steps in and forces him to flee, much to the sisters' gratitude. However, Lasswell's group is unable to advance since they've wasted too much time and haven't reached the minimum of 5 defeated contestants to continue. However, Delmadoa uses his authority as an Order to let them pass, since he wants to kill them in front of everyone. Sol suddenly breaks off from the group, declaring that he sees no need to stay with them any longer before summoning another Chaotic Darkness that the group promptly defeats. Not too long later, Akstar cooks a meal for the party (which he never does) before leaving the next morning, telling Lasswell that his training is finished and he'll face him in the finals. Akstar stops to show Lasswell the True Mirror of Equity, which Lasswell immediately imitates.

In the final stretch of the preliminaries, Jake gets severely wounded while protecting Lid. Sakura prepares a teleportation spell to send them to Gungan, but Demoldoa arrives to stop them. The Magus sisters hold off Demoldoa at the cost of their life, before Lasswell avenges them by finishing off the Epsilon Star for good. Now in the semi-finals, Lasswell's group meets Krowa, a former member of the Orders, and Regina, a human-like automaton powered by Krowa's magic. They agree to help Lasswell win the tournament, and soon Akstar himself helps out Lasswell for the sake of getting him into the finals. Taking the train to the final match, Lasswell's group is ambushed by assassins. They reroute the train to crash into a nearby town, forcing them to pick between losing the finals and innocent lives. Krowa and Regina deal with the sabotage while Lasswell and company head to the finals, but the duo are caught in a trap and end up dying. Meanwhile, Lasswell faces off against Akstar, both roughly equal in strength. Lasswell, thinking back to Akstar's training, combines all 3 Mirrors of Equity to unleash the Final Mirror of Equity, an attack that fells the swordsman in one strike. Lasswell is declared the winner, but he refuses the prize and instead calls out the Emperor to defeat him. At this point, Raegan's group enters the arena as the Emperor calls upon Levnato and Zeno of Beta Star to assist him. Lasswell is devastated to learn that Akstar himself was Zeno the whole time, as he turns his back on his once-called companions.

During the fight, Rain and Lasswell activate their blood awakenings, but a repelling energy surges between them, knocking them back. Suddenly, the Children of Hess begin to bomb the stadium and Milo leads both groups out of the stadium to their airship, the Yuraisha. Rain is infuriated at this turn of events, accusing Milo of killing innocent people, to which he responds that they're casualties of war. The group uses the ensuing chaos at Visectrum to attack key Aldore facilities in Magistellus. Lasswell's group encounters and defeats Physalis of Pi Star, an odd girl accompanied by a Moogle named Moog. Despite being with Aldore, she seems like a good person for simply knocking out the Children of Hess instead of killing them. Meanwhile Raegan's group runs into Distorque and Shamlin once again, the former revealing that Yego has a bomb implanted in her that he can detonate on a whim. However, Shamlin turns on Distorque, tired of obeying his master, and kills him before leaving without a fight. Back on the Yuraisha, Rain and Lasswell end up fighting over their ideals: Lasswell believes Hess and Aldore blood can come together, while Rain believes that it's impossible for them to reconcile. When they destroy the final facility, Rain stays behind, declaring that they can't work together anymore since he plans to change Aldore from the inside, meaning Hess must be stopped. Lasswell watches as Rain turns his back on the party, revealing that he Hyoh all along.

Shaken by the loss, Lasswell and Fina foolishly try to find Rain on foot. They are quickly surrounded by Aldore forces, but are saved by a vision of Rain left for them by Rain before he disappeared in Season 1. They run into Sol, who has been wandering the vicinity looking traces of Rain's past. He reveals that Rain was taken in by a kind-hearted girl named Mirfas when he first wound up in Paladia. The townspeople, learning that Rain is Aldore royalty, blamed him for their miserable lives and tried to kill him. Mirfas dies taking the blow in Rain's stead, as he learns the hard way that the two bloodlines can never come together. Back with the main group, a large-scale operation takes place as Lasswell and Raegan's groups are sent around Paladia to stop Aldore's advances. Back at Gungan, Lid tends to a wounded Jake, who has lost the ability to see or hear. Kunshira takes her to the Land of Provenance to find the Tear of Provenance, a medicine able to restore Jake's condition at the cost of Lid's life. They fight Juraga of Nu Star and lose, but he recognizes Lid's determination and leaves. Lid takes the tear and dies, but Juraga returns and gives her a secret medicine only known by the Naturia royal family that revives her. With the tear, Lid heals Jake and the two return to the main group. Shortly after, Sakura and Nichol defect to Aldore to become members of the Order so Rain won't have to bear his burden alone.

Milo reveals that Aldore is planning to activate a dormant creature of immense power called Weapon, and the only one who knows how to activate and control it, a researcher named Elmaul, is currently held captive by Aldore. The group heads to Weapon's location, Rubiena, while the Aldore emperor sends all of the Orders and 3 cloaked women called Exostars. The main group splits up, Raegan's group encountering the first Exostar, Obliterating Star. It is revealed that all 3 of the Exostars are monsters containing the duplicated soul of Ignacio's childhood friend, Kagane, and live in an endless cycle of life and death serving the emperor. Ignacio makes a promise to liberate Kagane, even if it means killing her himself. Meanwhile, Lasswell's group runs into the Orders, who were separated from Hyoh in an earthquake. They fight Levnato, Nichol and Physalis, and Lasswell is about to finish off Levnato when he attacks the nearby Children of Hess, distracting him. Physalis is angry at Levnato's lack of decency and switches sides, although Levnato doesn't show any concern about this. Later they run into Juraga, who joined the order to protect Gungan, and upon defeat he questions whether he should stay with Aldore. Hyoh, separated from the Orders, is surrounded by nearby monsters but is saved by Sol, who proposes they defeat the Aldore emperor together. Hyoh declines, but Sol is insistent and follows Rain, leading the pair to travel together for the time being.

Lasswell's group, not far from Weapon, calls it a night. Lasswell and Physalis meet and fight with Sakura and Nichol, but not before sharing a meal with the two. The Aldore emperor needs a "key" to activate Weapon, and on cue, red tendrils extend out of Weapon and snare Physalis, trapping her inside the monster. The emperor reveals that Physalis, having both Aldore and Hess blood inside her, is the key to activating Weapon, and commands Weapon to annihilate the entire island. However, Physalis manages to resist Weapon's will, stopping the attack and buying time for Lasswell and company to save her. They follow Weapon and jump onto its back, but are ambushed by the emperor and the remaining Orders. The emperor reveals his plan to use Weapon to drain the crystals and people of Paladia of their energies, turning himself into the eternal ruler of world where only he exists. Physalis teleports Lasswell's group away, allowing them to rendezvous with Raegan. Along the way they run into Juraga, who has decided to help the group and saved Elmaul. Both groups meet and decide their plan: Raegan's group will seek out the emperor, while Lasswell's group will save Physalis and stop Weapon. Elmaul explains that the Tear of Provenance is necessary to save her, so Lid and Juraga head back to Gungan to get it.

In the meantime, Rain and Sol are making their way across the island, both being uncharacteristically concerned for the other's safety, Sol going so far as to thank Rain for protecting him from a monster attack by healing his wounds. Sakura and Nichol soon join the group, where Rain reveals that after Mirfas's death he tried and failed to defeat the emperor, but instead of killing Rain he offered him to join the Orders and seize power for himself. However, with the emperor's absurd plan revealed, Sakura and Nichol no longer see any reason for Rain to fight for Aldore since the emperor is too power-hungry to relinquish the throne. The group unanimously decides to take the fight to the emperor himself.

Raegan's group runs into Levnato, determined to protect the emperor. After a fierce battle that Levnato nearly wins by taking a performance-enhancing drug, the group fells the Alpha Star and faces the emperor in battle. The group manages to weather his assault, but are quickly overwhelmed as he summons an army of Exostars to his side. Rain, Sol, Sakura and Nichol arrive, making quick work of the Exostars as Rain and Sol take on the emperor. The two work in furious concert, pushing the emperor to a corner and forcing him to flee. The group gives chase as Rain and Sol almost seem to be on good terms, Sol uncharacteristically making fun of Rain's cooking skills. The emperor, now on his last legs, faces the party one last time before falling in battle. Before Rain can finish him off, Levnato appears and unleashes a powerful magic attack before fleeing with the emperor. Sol takes the blow for Rain and dies, expressing his gratitude to Rain for being able to destroy his lack of emotions before disappearing. With their job done, the group heads over to Weapon. Along the way they run into Nagi and Shamlin, both of whom are defeated before being accepted into the group by Sieghard.

Lasswell's group encounters Zeno, who urges Lasswell to kill him in battle so he can truly surpass him. Zeno accompanies the group to his battlefield of choice, a field of flowers with the Aldore tower in the distance. Lasswell fights Zeno, and the two clash fiercely before Lasswell defeats his former master. Zeno tells Lasswell to leave and awaits his death until Dark Fina appears in a crystal, urging him to continue. Zeno complies, heading to Aldore tower for the upcoming final battle. Meanwhile, Lasswell's group meets up with Lid and Juraga, who have successfully acquired the Tear, and jump onto Weapon. They use the tear to free Physalis, but inadvertently release its core as well, causing Weapon's defense mechanisms to activate. Lasswell and company stave off the swarm of monsters, and soon both Raegan's and Rain's group show up to help. After destroying Weapon's core, Rain and Lasswell have an awkward reunion where the two initially accept the fact that they must walk separate paths due to their blood. However, as per Physalis's demand, the two overcome the wall separating their bloods by shaking hands, transforming both of the knights into kingly figures. With everything else resolved, the group sets their sights on the Aldore tower for the final battle.

At the tower, they split up and run into Akstar and Dark Fina, who seem to know each other and join the group. Along the way up the tower, Yego, Mid, Shamlin, Naji, Milo, Juraga, Kunshira and Elmaul are all forced to leave at certain points. Meanwhile, the Aldore emperor is in a recovery pod, where he learns how he lived a normal life and was about to be a husband before realizing it was all an illusion fabricated by one of the emperors to strengthen his resolve through despair. Before the final battle, Akstar approaches Rain and awakens some power within him. The group then fights the emperor, and after a heated battle, they force him to yield. However, Levnato appears and expresses his disappointment about the emperor and causes him to disappear, before revealing himself to be Vlad, the emperor during the Aldore-Hess war. By replicating his soul he effectively became immortal, and pulled the strings behind Aldore for 700 years by posing as Alpha Star and manipulating the various emperors. Vlad fires a massive ball of energy at the group, but Rain rushes forward and a barrier appears, thanks to what Akstar gave him earlier. Vlad's attacks are rendered ineffective, so he leaves to his floating palace, Grandore, to fire upon the continent of Paladia and wipe out its inhabitants. The group gives chase, but while taking the teleporter there the transfer space begins to destabilize, separating Rain and Lasswell's groups. Rain's group gets to the palace with little trouble, but Lasswell's group ends up deeper in the space, where they find crystals recalling memories of their journey. However, these crystals begin to show an alternate reality: One where no barrier appeared when Rain blocked Vlad's attack, and the party is quickly defeated. Rain, who loses an arm, leg and eye, urges Lasswell to finish off the tired Vlad, but Lasswell puts down his weapon so Vlad will spare his friends. Vlad immediately goes back on his word and fires another blast, killing everyone except Rain.

A terrified Rain encounters Zeno, who reveals himself as Akstar and leads Rain out. Rain would spend decades of attempts trying to thwart the emperor, but all of them would fail. He is saved from execution by Dark Fina, who takes him back in time. In the past, they meet Akstar and seal him inside a crystal so Rain can disguise himself as Akstar and train him to strengthen his emotional resolve. Soon both parties meet Vlad in battle, and with the help of Akstar and Dark Fina, reign victorious over the tyrannical ruler. Lasswell sees Akstar off, since changing the timeline means he and Dark Fina will no longer exist. However, their celebration is cut short as Vlad appears before the party in a monstrous ogre-like form that towers over the mountains. The group escapes Grandore and makes it to ground level, where Vlad declares he will wipe out all of existence. Since the crystal on his forehead contains his soul, destroying it would defeat Vlad. Using the Invincible they land on Vlad's midriff and make their way up. The Sworn Six minus Raegan stay behind to fight duplicated copies of the Sworn Eight while the main group destroys Vlad's crystal. However, nothing happens and they are sent into the deepest recesses of Vlad's mind, where 3 mini-versions of Vlad are set upon the party. The party manages to prevail thanks to the crystals they picked up earlier, which summon visions of their friends to their side to aid them in battle. They destroy the real crystal containing Vlad's soul, who has gone insane, and destroy him for good.

With the battle over, the party goes their separate ways. Sakura and Nichol help Rain assume the Aldore throne, while Milo helps Lasswell with Hess. The rest of the party go on to live a quiet life in peace, Cid living with Yego and Mid, Sieghard forming a dancing troupe with Shamlin and Nagi, Ignacio learning to sculpt, Folka living in Olderion, Lid and Jake finally coming together, and Fina and Physalis staying in Lapis, the latter becoming a Knight of Grandshelt. Meanwhile, the real Akstar comes out of his crystal, commenting that it would be nice to meet Lasswell.

Music[edit | edit source]

The soundtrack of Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is primarily composed by Noriyasu Agematsu from the group Elements Garden, who previously worked on Chaos Rings for Square Enix. He wanted to preserve the nuances of the music from Final Fantasy III and VI, even while recording with a full orchestra. Agematsu is also known for having contributed some of the music for Wild Arms 5 and Wild Arms XF of the Wild Arms series.

For events based on other games in the series or outside the series, it features original music from those releases. For example, in the first Final Fantasy XV King Mog event, it used the themes "Daemons" and "Horrors of the Night", and during the collaboration with NieR Automata, "Bipolar Nightmare (Vocals)" was featured. The game also borrows some music tracks whenever it directly homages scenes from previous games in the series, as seen in some key scenes involving the Water Priestess Luka, in which the original NES version of "Priestess Aria" is played.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Brave Exvius has played host to well over two dozen collabs in its first two years of service, more than any other mobile title or MMO within the series.

Promotion for Ariana Grande collaboration.

  • In 2017, pop star Ariana Grande was featured in the game and has several variant units to her name. The first, Dangerous Ariana, is based off Grande's alter ego, Dangerous Woman. Her song "Touch It" was featured in the game and arranged as a Final Fantasy Brave Exvius remix.[7] Chic Ariana, meanwhile, is based on her real-world persona, as well as Sportive Ariana and Charming Kitty Ariana.
