FF8 Hyperion Render

Hyperion in Final Fantasy VIII.

This gunblade uses a semi-automatic pistol, resembling a Beretta rather than a revolver as a handle, and it also has a unique blade. Seifer uses it differently from Squall's gunblades, in a backhand slash rather than a forward one, although this may just be his fighting style and not due to the weapon's design mechanic, and he also uses it with one hand rather than two. Due to a lack of mention in any source material involving gunblades it is unknown whether this is an actual model type or a custom designed model for Seifer's personal use.
Final Fantasy VIII description

Hyperion (ハイペリオン, Haiperion?) is a recurring weapon in the series. Originally appearing as Seifer Almasy's trademark gunblade, it is similar to Squall Leonhart's Revolver, and generally appears whenever the character himself appears.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Hyperion is Seifer's weapon of choice, providing 12 Strength and 255 Hit Rate. The trigger button enhances damage when pressed right when Seifer strikes his enemy, same as how Squall's gunblade works. Hyperion stands apart from Squall's gunblades thanks to its use of a Beretta-style handle instead of Squall's revolvers.

Hyperion was one of the twelve Titans of Ancient Greece, the sons and daughters of Gaia and Ouranos, which were later supplanted by the Olympians. He was the brother of Cronus. He was also the lord of light, and the Titan of the east.
