One look at the fruits o' ye labors an' ye'll agree 'twas well worth the bother.
—Faren, Warrior, Aletap Rumors

The Gungnir (グングニル, Gunguniru?) is a weapon that appears in several games of the Final Fantasy series, though sometimes only as the summon Odin's spear and not a weapon that characters can equip and use.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy II Edit

A lance reportedly held by the god of war.

The Gungnir is a special weapon for Gordon that can be obtained in the Arcane Sanctuary in the PSP version, and provides 90 Attack as well as +50 Strength and Agility.

Final Fantasy III Edit

Gungnir is a rare steal and rare drop from Odin in the 3D remakes. It has an Attack of 140 and is among the best weapons. The Dragoon and Onion Knight can wield it, and it provides a bonus of 10 to Strength and Agility.

Final Fantasy IV Edit

Legendary spear said to have been a favorite of the gods.

Gungnir (Hero's Spear in the Easy Type version) boasts an Attack of 99 and Accuracy of 30, as well as granting +15 to Stamina. Kain is equipped with it when he joins the party after the Battle of the Giant of Babil. This weapon is metallic.

In the 3D versions, it has an attack power of 99 with an accuracy of 90 with the same properties as the 2D versions. Kain can equip this spear.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Edit

The Gungnir is a powerful spear for Kain, and provides 99 Attack, 30% Accuracy, and +10 Stamina. It is found in a chest in the Subterrane after defeating Barbariccia.

Final Fantasy VI Edit

Legendary lance of the gods.

The Gungnir is Mog's exclusive weapon acquired in the Dragons' Den by defeating the Neslug (only in the Advance and mobile versions). Another way to get one is to bet the Longinus in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum. Gungnir has an attack power of 240, +7 Stamina and Magic, and enables the Runic command (even though Celes can't equip it), but does not grant Jump bonuses.

Final Fantasy X Edit

Any of Kimahri's spears may become the Gungnir when Break Damage Limit is the weapon's dominant ability.

Final Fantasy XI Edit

FFXI Gungnir
Odin FFXI Gungnir Art

The Gungnir is the Relic Weapon polearm for the Dragoon job, available only to level 75 Dragoons after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items).

While it is still considered the strongest polearm and the best weapon for the Dragoon class, when shown against the other two-handed melee job Relic Weapons it is comparably weak. This is due primarily to the hidden effect created by using its unique Weaponskill, Gierskogul, which causes its user to gain a potent Shock Spikes effect.

This weapon is not the spear used by the form of Odin faced in the difficult Einherjar endgame instanced event, as both the event and Odin himself were introduced some five years after the Relic Weapons were created. Though what he clearly wields is a much larger, more impressive polearm than the Relic Weapon, Odin refers to it in-combat as his "...obsidian blade..." before unleashing his trademark Zantetsuken annihilation move unto players, referring to the sword of the same name.

Final Fantasy XII Edit

The Gungnir appears as one of the stronger spears. Spears are among the faster weapons with 2.14s charge and 1.2s action time, second only to daggers and ninja swords.

Gungnir can be bought from Lohen's shop in Dalmasca Westersand after the events of Giruvegan for 17,000 gil, made in the bazaar by selling Mystletainn x2, Ketu Board x2 and Broken Spear x2, and costs 15,300 gil. It can be dropped from Bune (rare) in the Pharos and Subterra. Gungnir can be equipped by characters who have obtained the Spears 5 license on the License Board for 40 LP. It does Fire-elemental damage and has Attack power of 84.

In the Zodiac versions, it now provides 95 Attack, 8 Evade, 28 Ct, 4% combo rate, is Fire-elemental, and has a 10% chance of causing Disable on a target and requires the Spears 5 license for 40 LP. It can be found as a treasure in the Pharos - First Ascent (Wellspring Ravel - 3rd Flight), dropped by Bune (3% chance), or from the bazaar for 9,025 gil by selling Ketu Board x2, Broken Spear x2, and Mystletainn x2. Gungnir can be wielded by Uhlan.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings Edit

Forked lance that dances with flame.
—In-game description

Etymology Edit

In Norse mythology, Gungnir is a javelin forged and crafted by dwarves, known as the Sons of Ivaldi, on Loki's request as part of his apology for cutting off the hair of Sif. It was given to Odin and had the uncanny ability of always hitting the target it was thrown at.
