Shiva is fought as a boss in Rydia's Lunar Trial in Final Fantasy IV Advance and The Complete Collection. She mostly uses physical attacks, but when she extends her arm forward she will cast Ice Storm, dealing moderate Ice damage to the party. Compared to other bosses the party has beaten by now, she is simple to defeat.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Shiva (also spelled Śiva) is a Hindu god. The Hindu Shiva once saved the world by consuming poison, giving him blue skin around the area of the neck and throat. Shiva is a male god, but can merge with his consort Parvati to become Ardhanari, an androgynous Hindu god of duality. Shiva is the god of destruction along with Vishnu, who is the god of preservation, and Brahma, the god of creation. Together they are the three principle deities of the Trimurti (Hindu Triad). It is believed he periodically destroys the world, then recreates it.

Shiva has different human forms, males and females. When he was in his avatar form, he spent most of his times in the Himalayan snow mountain. Shiva in the Final Fantasy series is likely inspired by one of his female avatars.
