Zu is an enemy from Final Fantasy X-2. It is one of Spira's largest flying fiends, having been rumored to carry shoopufs off in its talons. With its tremendous wings Zu sends shock waves crashing into their enemies.





Sonic Storm.

Zu is not terribly difficult to defeat normally, but it is more powerful in Oversoul due to its strong Chicken Wing Lv. 3. attack, which removes 75% of the party's HP in the original version and instantly defeats the player party in the HD Remaster version. Zu always appears alone.


In the HD Remaster, it is best for the party to defeat an Oversouled immediately and equip Deathproof abilities and boost their stats considerably. In all versions, it is recommended to cast Protect and Shell to reduce the damage it can do.

Creature Creator[]

Fiend Tale[]

One notable Zu was created from the spirit of a treasure hunter who died to a Claret Dragon while venturing up Mt. Gagazet's Floating Ruins. Returning to the mountain to recover his memory, Zu crosses paths with the Claret Dragon and defeats him. Having achieved his goal to return to the site of his death, Zu departs to the Farplane while leaving the earned treasure to Yuna.

Musical themes[]

"Aeons", the aeon-battle exclusive music theme, is played during the Zu-Claret Dragon battle in the Zu's fiend tale ending.

Zu means "fire" in the Sumerian language. Anzû, before misread as Zû, is a lesser divinity or monster in several Mesopotamian religions. He was conceived by the pure waters of the Apsu and the wide Earth, or as son of Siris. Anzû was seen as a massive bird who can breathe fire and water, although Anzû is alternately seen as a lion-headed eagle (like a reverse griffin).
