Version history Statement of purpose Recommended further reading Added new site to the list of sites authorized to host this FAQ April fanasy Clarifying “continuation” as meaning “sequel” April I’ve tried to maintain as accurate a translation here as possible, and I believe I’ve managed to keep all the explanations true to the original Japanese information offered in the books. I do have faith that I’ve accurately conveyed the intent of everything present in those sections I translated, and I’ve tried to maintain a Japanese-to-English wording as consistent with the original as possible.

Where that wasn’t always possible and it’s never omeg to be fntasy, I’ve inserted brackets [ ] to indicate the words that I had to insert in order to maintain the same flow we would fina, in English.

Surprisingly, I’ve not had to do it all that much. Also, be aware that also contained in brackets at the end of many sections you’ll find an analysis section where I offer some kind of clarification fianl comment on the section you’ve just read.

I do hope you’ll enjoy this Ultimabia and that it will be of benefit to many fans of Final Fantasy X and X; both those who weren’t able to read the books for themselves and those who just want to see another take on the wording. The party chief and praetor fall from power, and Baralai is inaugurated as the [new] praetor [Analysis: Plenty of interesting info here; tells us when Wakka and Lulu got married, when the temples of Yevon lost their power and revealed the truth to the people, and plenty of other interesting tidbits.

Not a huge treasure trove by any means, but interesting stuff to know nonetheless.

She lost her beloved, Tidus — just like [Lenne] with Shuyin — and became gripped by despair. The information surrounding the pair is detailed here. It was then that the whereabouts of her lover, Shuyin, became unknown.

In an effort to save his love, he had planned to take Vegnagun, the secret weapon of Bevelle [, their enemies]. Before long, a spy from Zanarkand brought news to Lenne that Shuyin had been seen, and she intuited that he planned to enter Bevelle.

Just famtasy Shuyin could activate Vegnagun, Lenne discovered him and restrained him, but immediately afterward, the lovers were attacked by Bevelle soldiers and killed.

This tells us how Lenne knew where to go to find Shuyin, which is good to know. When Yuna attaches the songstress dressphere to her body, little by little Lenne’s thoughts flow into Yuna via the clothing and her behavior begins to reflect this.

When she recovers it in Luca during Chapter 1, she begins to dance uncontrollably; in Chapter 3, when she meets Shuyin in the abyss of the Farplane, the thoughts leave her unable to move Also, during the concert in Chapter 4, due to the effect of the sphere wave from Shinra’s sphere screen, it produces on the screen a projection of Lenne’s memories of the past.

This kind of phenomenon is only seen in matters concerning Yuna, and the summoner also shares [with Lenne] that their beloved sweethearts bear appearances that are much the same, a link [that is] an odd turn of chance The truth behind the cause of this link is not certain. Doesn’t really tell us anything we didn’t know before. In truth, Lenne and Shuyin did not take one another’s hands and attempt escaping together.

Yuna’s dreams linger with her, but it had been someone else — who looked much like Tidus — who was killed underneath Bevelle while running away in these fragmented thoughts, though her own feelings and memories of Tidus and two years ago had melded with them to produce these dreams. As for what really happened with Lenne and Shuyin, this can be seen during the concert in Chapter 4 and inside the sealed cave in Chapter 5.

Now here’s some clarification. It was always quite confusing to me before how it was that Tidus and Yuna — who were obviously supposed to be in the place of Shuyin and Lenne in Yuna’s dreams — had been escaping together, but Lenne had “just gotten there in time” to stop Shuyin from using Vegnagun.

According to this, that scene with them running together while holding hands never actually happened. It was just a result of Yuna’s own memories playing with what memories of Lenne she was getting from the songstress dressphere. He starts up Vegnagun, but while doing so, Lenne enters and tells ojega to stop; their pursuers then shoot them [Analysis: It is not exactly his corpse.


The Shuyin in ultimanoa story is full of the despair, hatred and negative destructive thoughts of the Fnial of years ago, preserved by pyreflies — which became the “shadow” of Shuyin. As seen in the Yevon Dome in X, in places where pyreflies are densely packed, they will remember moments from the past and project them. In omeba to the Shuyin in the story, these kinds of phantom thoughts began acting on their own, in a unique case of those who have died. The difference between the corpse and the “shadow” is that its pyreflies do not possess the means of ordinary physical interaction.

While the “shadow” of Shuyin lacks physical substance, it is possible for it to produce extensions of itself and for it to directly influence the state of mind of those around it as seen inside the sealed cave.

In order for it to begin physically interacting with the living world outside, it needed to possess someone to act as a vessel. ffantasy

In order to be a suitable vessel for it, someone must be of similar disposition and have ojega physical and spiritual strength he needs. Furthering this need to find what is considered a suitable vessel is that if the current vessel should lose consciousness, transferring to a new one is not possible.

This is slightly confusing. There’s also no explanation as to why these pyreflies cannot physically manifest. Even if these pyreflies didn’t belong to the flesh and blood body of Shuyin before his death, that shouldn’t make lutimania difference, as all pyreflies have previously displayed the capacity to physically manifest, either through unsent, fiends or when tapped into from the surrounding area to be used in the formation of aeons.

This also leaves us to wonder why Shuyin WAS able to physically manifest himself for the final battle of the game. Even the game itself leaves us with that question due to Nooj ultimxnia said “He acts through another’s body. Stop the body and you stop him,” so this isn’t an issue with the Ultimania Omega being inconsistent.

In regard to the “shadow” business, for my own part, I would speculate that for the memories and despair of Shuyin to have been imparted to other pyreflies, they would have needed to come in contact with them after his death, and that they may have merged with them.

Otherwise, I don’t believe we can reasonably account for how this came to happen, or why there aren’t tons of these Shuyin apparitions all around Spira. I would also say that — for all intents and purposes — this Shuyin we deal with IS Shuyin himself, for it has his memories and his emotions. That being the case, it might as well be him, especially in lieu of us having any reason to believe that all traces of his memories and despair were not in the Den of Woe oega the first place.

In terms of being helpful, though, this section does slightly elaborate on the concept behind Shuyin taking possession of other people’s bodies and his vulnerabilities in this state.

With [Nooj’s] flesh as a vessel, [Shuyin] intended to activate Vegnagun and destroy Spira. However, Nooj’s will was strong and the control by Shuyin’s feelings could not influence his actions very much. The only time Shuyin’s will took over Nooj’s own was on the Mi’hen Highroad, immediately after the 4 [survivors of the Crimson Squad excercise] parted ways. After the crisis passed and the other three had been shot, Nooj became calm again as his consciousness rose fijal to the surface and Shuyin’s was sealed into his subconscious.

In order to try controlling Nooj’s body completely, he kept sending him unconscious thoughts about finding Vegnagun, which beckoned to him little by little. As a result, Nooj eventually arrives at Vegnagun’s location, but his ultimanai for it caused it to flee. Finnal come here, Shuyin attempted to fulfill his objective by taking another vessel. When 3 individuals held a secret meeting in the Bevelle Underground during Chapter 3, it presented the perfect opportunity for Shuyin.

After Baralai pointed at a gun at him, in but a moment, he had passed from Nooj’s heart and withdrawn from his body. Finding him to also be suitable, [Shuyin] possessed Baralai and leaped into the nearby hole that led to the Farplane, making his way toward Vegnagun. Not really anything we wouldn’t know from playing the game. Shuyin is a man of the past; he lived years ago in Zanarkand, the metropolis city of summoners. Tidus, a pyreform, was a resident of its summoned replica, Dream Zanarkand.


Be that as it may, Dream Zanarkand was in fact created with the ulfimania in mind that it be the ideal [representation] of Zanarkand’s existance, a wish given form. Since its existance was the model for everything in Dream Zanarkand, this extends to its inhabitants also. When thinking about this with regard to Tidus, one cannot deny the possibility that this [was the case] with his fantazy and Shuyin. However, most inhabitants of Dream Zanarkand would marry one another and have children, continuing the ultimahia of life.

For this reason, the genes of the dream’s inhabitants began to blend in a complicated way, and with these impurities, the duplication of [Shuyin’s] personage cannot be certain.

Even if it is true that Shuyin was the model for Tidus, this would not mean that their connection is close. This offers us little clarification on the matter, but it’s probably pretty much impossible that Shuyin was the model for Tidus, if only because the Dream Zanarkand version of Shuyin should have been created years in the past.

He should have long since died. It’s possible, though, that Tidus is a descendant of Dream Zanarkand’s Shuyin. That would actually make a lot of sense. This interview established that there would be a connection between the two worlds, though it didn’t detail it. However, based on what was later revealed to be the connection, it’s clear that it had already been conceived, as Kitase hints at it with his final word on the subject.

Inthe exact nature of the concept was finally revealed in the Final Fantasy X-2 Ultimania, having been hinted toward by a few elements of the game. Nojima revealed that Shinra of the Gullwings, an Al Bhed child prodigy and inventor of various machinery, would attempt using the remains of Vegnagun — the behemoth machina Shuyin tried to destroy Spira with — to extract life energy from the Farplane and use it to power machines.

Shinra would attempt doing this as a result of his analysis of the Farplane late in the game. During this diagnostic, Shinra concluded that there was a great deal of energy floating around inside the Farplane, and that it was most likely the life force of Spira, which could be extracted and used as a power source; however, he concluded that it would take generations to properly implement the idea. Further of note is that Nojima fantasg that the Al Bhed entrepeneur Rin also was interested in extracting mako from the Farplane, and that he provided Shinra with the funding to make the attempt.

For his part, Rin’s desire to do this is revealed during the game should he be uncovered as ultimaniaa culprit behind covering up the malfunctioning machina disaster on the Mi’hen Highroad. Nojima went fantsy to say that Shinra’s attempts to use Vegnagun’s remains failed and that he was unable to complete the concept of mako-extraction, just as Shinra had predicted.

However, some years later, once space travel became possible, Shinra’s descendants would go on a voyage to the world of Final Fantasy VII. There, at some point in the future, they would be successful in utilizing the concept, and would provide electricity from the Planet for a price; these descendants would found the Shin-Ra Company of Final Omeg VII.

The connection would again be hinted toward in the Final Fantasy X I will here present the dialogue from Final Fantasy X-2 that hints at the connection, as well as the interviews and other translations that establish its existance as part of official Final Fantasy continuity. You hoped we would botch the case. It appears that I have underestimated you, Yuna. There’s limitless energy swirling around in there.

Has Shinra been helping you with that? Now that FFX International is out and we’re in the future, I’m in a predicament; it really isn’t that hard to think of another story [set] in that world; room for expansion was left possible there without too much difficulty, don’t you think? Speaking conversely, FFX received a splendid reception and made us think of adding to it.

But, with X, there was an older story with a partly-finished world and an opening that this new one could be added to and [, in doing] so[,] complete it. Simply put, in VII’s ending, Holy came, and the next thing you knew, it was over without closing things up, and then it was the ” years later” [scene] in the future.
