Saffire WEAPON.jpg

Sapphire Weapon (サファイアウェポン, Safaia Wepon?) is one of the seven Weapons created by the Planet, and one of the five in Final Fantasy VII roused to protect the world following Meteor's summoning. It seems to be aquatic and can shoot a laser from its mouth. It is the only Weapon that cannot be fought by the party.

As the Sapphire Weapon is never fought in the game, it is never named in Final Fantasy VII. It is identified as Sapphire Weapon in official materials, including a Final Fantasy Art Museum card in 2001, a figurine released in 2004, and Ultimania guides.

Story[]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Sapphire Weapon's face.

After Meteor is summoned and Tifa awakes in Junon, Heidegger reports to Rufus that a Weapon is approaching from the sea. When Sapphire Weapon reaches the shore, it surfaces from the water and rears its head in front of the city, only to have it blown off by the Mako Cannon.

There is a large crater on the Bottom of the Sea approximately where the Sapphire Weapon fell. That is where Emerald Weapon sometimes hovers after the party acquires the submarine.

Spoilers end here.

Behind the scenes[]

The designs of the Weapons in Final Fantasy VII are highly reminiscent of mecha from the Gundam franchise; the Sapphire Weapon resembles the ZMT-A31S Doggorla.

Merchandise[]

Sapphire Weapon appears as figurines in the Final Fantasy Creatures Vol 4 series that came out in 2004. The Final Fantasy Creatures collection figurines require minimal assembly and there are three types of every character: full-color, crystal, and chrome.

Other appearances[]

Final Fantasy XIV[]

Sapphire Weapon is a Garlean superweapon mentioned in Patch 5.2 and introduced in Patch 5.3, developed by the lingering remnants of the VIIth Imperial Legion from reverse engineering the Ultima Weapon and incorporating both an aquatic Primal and the data of Regula Van Hydrus into its mainframe.

Final Fantasy XV -The Dawn of the Future-[]

Sapphire Weapon is mentioned in Lunafreya Nox Fleuret's chapter, which tells the story Episode Luna would have covered had the second season of DLC not been cancelled mid-way. It can thus be presumed that the Sapphire Weapon was to be the final boss of Episode Luna. Sapphire Weapon is a magitek weapon similar to the Diamond Weapon hidden away in ancient Solheimian ruins on Niflheim territory. When Aranea Highwind heads there to investigate, she ends up being trapped there amid daemons. Sol and Lunafreya team up to rescue her, and find the Sapphire Weapon and destroy it.
