Valhalla is a greatsword that can be equipped by Ibuki.
Valhalla (from Old Norse Valhöll "hall of the slain") is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja's field Fólkvangr. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat known as Einherjar, as well as various legendary Germanic heroes and kings, as they prepare to aid Odin during the events of Ragnarök.In Norse mythology,
- Within the context of Final Fantasy swords taking inspiration from Nordic and Germanic mythology, although swords such as the Valhalla and the Balmung are associated with the sacred and heroic, most such swords are dark swords rather than holy swords, or attributed with the holy element, such as the Ragnarok. The Valhalla likely gains its darkness attribute from its originating element, drawing gloomy similarities to the Buddhist concepts of the Asura, the powerful demigod-like beings considered reincarnations of warriors accursed with the karma of experiencing neverending strife in their lifetimes.
