Ixion is a Lightning-elemental aeon in Final Fantasy X who can be summoned into battle. Ixion also appears as a boss in both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. Ixion's fayth form is voiced by Roger L. Jackson.
Ixion resembles a unicorn, with a long, golden horn and dark blue skin and gray mane and tail. He has gold bracers on his front legs.
The symbol for Ixion and Djose is annotated with the kanji for thunder (雷, kaminari?).
Ixion has high Defense and magic defense attributes. Ixion can exceed maximum damage when Kimahri upgrades his Celestial Weapon, the Spirit Lance. As a Lightning elemental aeon, Ixion absorbs Lightning damage.
Ixion's special move is Aerospark, where Ixion will fire two discs that collide with a single enemy, causing non-elemental damage. The attack also negates certain special magical effects: Haste, NulAll, Protect, Reflect, Regen and Shell.
Ixion's Overdrive is Thor's Hammer, which charges electrical energy on the tip of the horn and fires it toward the enemy, lifting it into the air. A blast of lightning is then sent to the enemy in mid-air, causing lightning damage.
Ixion's victory pose is to rear on his hind legs.

After obtaining the Summoner's Soul from Belgemine when she is fought for the second time, aeons can learn most abilities available to the main party by using items in specific quantities. See here what abilities can be learned this way.
Aeons also have "equipment", though it is not generally visible in-game. Ixion's weapon initially has an empty slot, followed by Piercing, followed by - (aeon exclusive trait that protects against instant death and all negative status effects except for Curse and Eject), and finally another empty slot. Once Kimahri's Celestial Weapons is upgraded with at least the crests, Ixion's weapon gains Break Damage Limit. His armor contains Sensor, Break HP Limit, Break MP Limit and Lightning Eater.
Final Fantasy X
Ixion is fought as a boss various times against other summoners.
In the International and HD Remaster versions Dark Ixion can be encountered in the Thunder Plains and must be fought twice in succession to be defeated, although the party can exit the plains and leave the second fight for a later time if they wish.
Final Fantasy X-2
Ixion returns as a boss under Shuyin's control. He is fought in the Djose Temple and according to the Al Bhed, found a way to merge with their machina. Because of this Ixion is the only aeon to have altered model due to having machina components junctioned to it.
Each Chamber of the Fayth is filled with a version of the "Hymn of the Fayth", each being sung by the fayth of the aeon within the chamber. Ixion's fayth is a bass male, though his voice is more subdued than others'.
Whilst not physically appearing Yuna can summon Ixion's Glyph to use Aerospark.
Ixion appears as an ability card.
Ixion in his Final Fantasy X appearance appears in this Japanese game published by Square Enix.
Ixion from Final Fantasy X appears on a Triple Triad card in the version playable via Final Fantasy Portal App.
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.
