This is a list of the weapons found in the original Final Fantasy, including the Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, 20th Anniversary and subsequent remakes.

Prices[edit | edit source]

In the Origins release for the PlayStation, an Easy mode was introduced and the player was allowed to choose difficulty. In Easy mode, weapon prices are generally lower. Prior to the Origins release, all releases used the Normal prices. After the Origins release, all releases use the Easy prices.

Unless otherwise noted as a footnote, all weapons sell for approximately half their purchase price. All weapons introduced in Dawn of Souls and subsequent releases sell for 100 gil, even those available for purchase.

Item magic[edit | edit source]

Some weapons cast spells when used in the inventory with the Item command. Item magic does not cost spell charges or MP.
