Other Square Enix titles[]

Waterga has appeared in the Kingdom Hearts series as an ability in some form. In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance it is an command in the flick rush minigame, dealing water damage and submerging the opponent's screen. Meanwhile in Kingdom Hearts III, Waterga is the highest tier of Water magic Sora can normally access, creating a water barrier before launching a tide to deal massive damage in a wide area.

Behind the scenes[]

Water II in Chrono Trigger.

Like Water, Waterga originates from the SNES Square RPG, Chrono Trigger, under the name of Water II (ウォータガ, Wōtaga?, lit. Waterga). It originally served as a high tier magic tech for the character Frog, being a group-wide version of the default Water spell.

Waterga would not properly be introduced as an ability in the series until Final Fantasy IX, being an enemy exclusive magic to Kraken. However, it did not make its usable debut until Final Fantasy X. The Japanese name of the Final Fantasy X spell that would become recurring in the series would be changed to (ウォタガ, Wotaga?), dropping the chōonpu of the (ウォ, Wo?) kana combination to match series's tradition of using four characters for spell names.
