Appearances[edit | edit source]
Ragnarok is an esper, which can be grafted into the sword of the same name, though the magicite can also be used on its own. It is obtained in the weapon shop in Narshe in the World of Ruin, and needs Locke to access the shop. The owner in the back offers to hand over the magicite or refine it into the sword. If the player chooses the magicite, its summon, Metamorphose (Metamorph in the original version), transforms an enemy into an item. Its Hit Rate is dependent upon the target, and is not affected by the Vanish-Doom bug. It costs 6 MP to summon. It also teaches Ultima at a rate of x1.
Known as the Lute of Ragnarok, it is a massive sword-like Eidolon that rests upon Cornelia Castle. The Lute of Ragnarok was originally an Eidolon of the first king of Cornelia.
During the present events of the game, the Lute of Ragnarok is now a sleeping summon devoid of power and is needed to help defeat Omega. In order for the Eidolon to be powered up once more, Eiko and Princess Sarah send Lightning to retrieve Ramuh's Judgment Staff from his granddaughter Ramewl. With the help of Lann and Reynn, Lightning is able to retrieve the Judgment Staff and Eiko is able to use the Lute of Ragnarok to weaken Omega.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Ragnarök is an event in Norse mythology that is similar to the Apocalypse. It is an event that is set off by the death of the god Balder, which was orchestrated by Loki. The Ragnarok was a final clash of all the major entities of Norse mythology. This caused all of the human spirits up in Valhalla to come down for the final battle.
This bloody encounter ebbs with the destruction of the universe and Balder along with a little handful of entities that are put in the bodies of children and only contain memories of the world before Ragnarok. Those entities would become mortal, and would live again in a new world of plenty and just existence.
