Rinoa & Angelo "Wishing Star" from FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered

Wishing Star (ウィッシュスター, Wisshu Sutā?, lit. Wish Star) is a recurring ability in the series. It is Rinoa Heartilly's ultimate Limit Break, generally dealing a large amount of damage to all enemies.

Angelo, with Rinoa as her rider, assaults the foe with a flurry of bullet-like charge-throughs from all sides.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Shooting star is a common name for the visible path of a meteoroid as it enters the atmosphere to become a meteor. There exists a widespread superstition that a wish made on a shooting star will come true.

Shooting stars have a relevance to Rinoa in Final Fantasy VIII; when she and Squall Leonhart first meet, she points at a shooting star they both saw through the Balamb Garden ballroom skylight. She repeats this in the ending.
