do u think we should try and expand this.

- Well, nobody's stopping you. Go ahead and expand this. But make sure you write properly. Crazyswordsman 20:24, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
I'm not sure if I should change it without discussing first...
I think it's generally accepted that Sin was created by a gravity spell casted by Yu Yevon and not through a dream of the fayth. Additionally, the final summoning is used to control Sin in a way, but the final summoning doesn't actually *create* Sin...discuss this first, but I'm almost sure.
- Don't know about what spell he used, only that it was Yu Yevon himself that created Sin and not the Fayth.
- The Final Summoning has the purpose of destroying Sin, not controlling it.
- The Final Summoning doesn't directly create Sin, Yu Yevon simply takes over the Final Aeon and uses it to create a "new" Sin, a process that takes a couple of years (the Calm). --Hecko X 06:08, 27 November 2006 (UTC)
To SmegHead Edit
Could you elaborate what you mean by this, because if I understand correctly, the given information is wrong:
"However, over time the power of Sin was far too great for Yu Yevon and he was warped into a fiend. Relying solely on instinct, the power of the aeons proved too much to resist." --Hecko X 14:01, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
- I was trying to say that instinctually he was drawn to the power of the Final Aeon and merged with it to begin creating Sin anew, but I couldn't get my thoughts into words (I have that problem sometimes). I'll try and make it a bit more coherent. --SmegHead 03:16, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
- I think thats better. I forgot that Yu Yevon is not the one who attacks Spira, it is Sin who does that. Yu Yevon's only instinct is to protect himself while summoning the Dream Zaanrkand. --SmegHead 03:41, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
If Sin acted solely on instinct to preserve Dream Zanarkand, why was it attacked at the beginning of the game?

- The was Braska acting on his own to bring Tidus to Spira. He said he would find a way to break the cycle. Auron mentions in Luca that he went to watch over Tidus so that Tidus could one day go to Spira. Jecht's first words when encountered inside Sin are that Auron is late.IronGasoline (talk) 17:41, July 16, 2015 (UTC)
Allusion to Chaos Edit
I think Yu Yevon alludes to Chaos from Final Fantasy as their created cycle/spiral in which they are reborn endlessly. Do we count it as Trivia information or no?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 09:24, December 26, 2010 (UTC)
I know by this point, any reason given as to why this guy looks like a squished cockroach is pure speculation, but it's unlikely the developers designed him like this for no reason. There are a few good theories about it on the page; I was thinking the reason for his appearance is less literal and more symbolic. Sin is this giant, city-destroying suit of armour that means Yevon is almost invincible. But deep inside Sin, the true Yevon is this rather pathetic-looking and small insect... see the contrast between the two?
The guy hides behind Sin. Fans are expecting a big extravagant villain, but what they get is this disappointing, weak blob. And frankly isn't that what the whole Yevonite religion is? The followers are led to believe that Yevon's teachings will save them from Sin, when the disappointing truth behind all the lies and appearances that the Maesters put up is that Sin will never stop coming. I wouldn't expect it to be added to the page, but I just thought I'd share a different take on the controversial appearance of X's final boss. 00:41, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
I always thought he was meant to look like a tick. He is nothing but a parasite, like a tick, possessing and feeding off of Aeons to maintain his power. It's very fitting, if not a little anti-climactic. Espritduo 01:03, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
Events after his 'death'Edit
From what I saw on the net, it appears that the novel Final Fantasy X-2.5 ~Eien no Daishou~ says that since Yevon's 'death' in FFX, the Farplane grew unstable.—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) ∙ 19:41, January 11, 2014 (UTC)
