Possible Opponents[]


His origins a mystery to even himself, though the novelization of FF1 names him "Zest". The Warrior of Light is actually a perfected Manikin who created in the image of Cid of the Lufaine. But having no memory of who or what he is, the Warrior became Cosmos's champion and led her warriors against the warriors of Chaos in World B until the deity's defeat sends him to World A where his actual adventure began.

Death Battle Info[]


Warrior of Light vs. Garland Cutscene

Imbued with the power of the Crystals themselves, the Warrior of Light has a vast array of attacks, and has defeated many notable opponents such as Garland on three separate occasions. In fact, the Warrior was able to overwhelm Ultimecia, Sephiroth, and the Emperor despite each being almost god-like in power, as well as stalemating Lightning during their battle. Though he held his own against an army of Manikins on his own, the Warrior lost only once to Squall Leonhart, and even then, he was holding back. It's worth noting that the Warrior of Light held his own against the Manikin Army by himself as opposed to Lightning and her friends, who were quickly overtaken. Just as well, the Warrior of Light is the only true survivor of the 12th Conflict of the Gods.

Later he eventually met up with the Thief (Sauber), the Black Mage (Daewoo), and the White Mage (Floe), taking down the likes of many enemies such as the Four Fiends, and single-handedly defeating Chaos himself, with his magical Sword of Light (or, Sword of the Elements). Keep in mind, Feral Chaos was able to wipe out both Cosmos' and his own Warrior's at the same time.

While a well-rounded character specializing in close to mid-range attacks, with a handful of minor support magical attacks, he is a heavy-type fighter with a few ranged attacks and powerful melee strikes.

Mirror Attack grants the Warrior Block Low priority when attacking, automatically reflecting lesser magic projectiles.


Protect increases his DEF by 10, granting the Warrior 123 DEF at Level 100, the highest in the game without taking equipment into account.


Light's Blessing summons swords of light to strike the opponent when the Warrior lands a successful combo, knocking them further back and doing additional damage.

The Warrior's EX Burst is Oversoul, where he attacks the opponent with magical-infused sword blows. The Warrior ends the EX Burst by dashing through the opponent for a final strike that "detonates" the magical energy surrounding them, consuming them in an explosion of light.

First seen in the novel "Final Fantasy: Memory of Heroes", the Warrior of Light is able to summon the 4 elements together, he can create a sword made of pure light that was powerful enough to kill Chaos in a single blow, this form can only be used when he has his crystal with him.
