The Pelupelu are a recurring race in the Final Fantasy series, introduced in Final Fantasy X. They are identified by their short stature and beak-like masks.


Final Fantasy X and X-2[]

They appear to be as tall as a human child. They speak very fast and wear a bird-like mask.

Tobli is the most notable Pelupelu in the Final Fantasy X series as he appears in Final Fantasy X-2, playing a small role in the Moonflow area. Several other Pelupelu make minor appearances as NPCs across the two games.

Behind the scenes[]

The Pelupelu race is never identified by name in the Final Fantasy X series. Their Japanese name first appeared in Final Fantasy X Ultimania Omega, and the English spelling wasn't revealed until their Mobius Final Fantasy card in 2018. It wouldn't be until Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail that the word Pelupelu actually appeared in the text of a mainline Final Fantasy game.
