Artwork of Ixion for Final Fantasy X.

Ixion (イクシオン, Ikushion?) [ixiːon]*(Dissidia 012 pronunciation.) is a lightning-elemental unicorn from the Final Fantasy series. Replacing Ramuh as Spira's lightning summon, it appeared for the first time in Final Fantasy X.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy X[edit | edit source]


Ixion is the Lightning-elemental aeon obtained at in the Djose Temple. Ixion's special move is Aerospark, where Ixion will fire two discs that collide with a single enemy, causing non-elemental damage that negates many effects. Ixion's Overdrive is Thor's Hammer, where he charges electrical energy on the tip of the horn and shoots it toward the enemy, lifting it into the air. While still connected by an electrical current, Ixion sends a blast of electricity to the enemy, causing lightning damage.

Ixion is also fought as a boss, and Dark Ixion can be fought in the PAL, International and HD releases.

Players fighting Ixion.

Ixion is a boss and the sole enemy in the special FATE in the Lochs area. It was modeled after the Final Fantasy X aeon. It can be obtained as a mount after obtaining 12 Ixion horns, while the minion can be obtained for 5.

Ixion reappears in Eden's Verse: Fulmination. Due to the Warrior of Darkness's mind wandering to other Lightning-aspected beings during the summoning of Ramuh, the primal created is a fusion of both Ramuh and Ixion in a centaur-like form. This version of Ramuh can also summon spectral copies of Ixion known as Wills of Ixion. The Ramuh/Ixion hybrid is obtainable as a mount from Eden's Verse: Refulgence (Savage).

Ixion Zero Style.

Ixion makes an appearance as a summon. The Soil Charge Triad (Soil is like the colored bullet of a Magun, used to summon creatures) needed to summon Ixion is:

  • The deep sleep that envelops death, Steel Gray!
  • The rising of boiling blood, Heat Crimson!
  • The brilliance that pierces the darkness, Lightning Yellow!

Followed by saying: "Cry! Summoned creature! Ixion!"

In the English audio version, the Soil Charge Triad was changed to:

  • The sleep that engulfs death, Steel Gray!
  • Bubbling and boiling blood, Heat Crimson!
  • The light that penetrates darkness, Lightning Yellow!

Followed by saying: "Howl! I summon you! Ixion!"

In "Moogle: Nostalgic Memories", Kaze summoned forth a "zero style" version of Ixion with the aid of Moogle Kupo. As with all such upgraded summons, the Soil Charge remained the same.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Ixion was a king of the Lapiths (an ancient tribe of Thessaly) and the son of either the god Ares, Antion, or the notorious evildoer Phlegyas in Greek mythology.

Ixion was summoned to the table of the gods, but rather than being grateful, he immediately tried to seduce Zeus's wife, Hera. Zeus stopped them and then tested Ixion by trying to seduce him with a fake Hera made from a cloud. Ixion slept with her, and was later punished by being strapped to a flaming wheel that flew around the world forever. Meanwhile, the fake Hera gave birth to the Centaurs, thus the reason why Ixion is portrayed by a horse-like creature.
