Etymology[edit | edit source]

Lion Heart means to possess or display courage, being able to face and deal with danger or fear without flinching.

The name in the Final Fantasy series comes from Squall, who has a lion theme to his character represented also in his ultimate attack, the Lion Heart.

Ultimecia's EX Burst in the Dissidia Final Fantasy series ends with Sorceress Heart, (エンドオブメモリーズ, [missing rōmaji]?, lit. End of Memories) whose name parallels the name of Squall's Lion Heart.
