Attendant to no master... Yojimbo! Entrust the sins of your past to this heretic witch!
~ Meia's summoning speech

The Sicarius Yojimbo is the a special Sicarius appearing in Mobius Final Fantasy during the Final Fantasy X Collaboration Event, October 11 - 25, 2018.

Yojimbo is a Sicarius Bestia who uses short, powerful strikes against the entire party, along with frequent casts of Slowga by his trusty sidekick Daigoro. In his initial appearance Oct 11 - 25, 2018, he came in three difficulties, from ★3 to ★5. Second instance from January 1 - February 1, 2020.

In addition, he was on hand as a solo enemy (as the Aeon Yojimbo) during the Dream Within a Dream, Part 3 and Part 4 event, and as the main antagonist during Yojimbo, the Blade of Vengeance.

Story[edit | edit source]

Meia has noted the rivalry and mutual respect that Yojimbo and Wol developed during the recent Battle Tower event, and would love to see more of this, so she pays the Aeon / Sicarius to challenge the Warriors of Light in the Ring of Braves. Yojimbo is a unique Sicarius, in that he is willing to work with a Heretic, as long as he's paid well... and Meia has paid him very well. Wol is flattered she would spend that much Gil for his sake, but she notes there's really nothing else of worth to spend it on. Wol hopes she's willing to put some of that Gil his way, too.

~ General Description

Yojimbo is one of the Aeons that appears during the Final Fantasy X Collaboration Event: Dream Within a Dream, where it acts as an adversary for some of the more important battles of the event.

Yojimbo's first appearance is in Dream Within a Dream, Part 3 where he offers a singular challenge against Wol, forcing our hero to prove his new Summoning ability... or die. Wol succeeds, and Yojimbo is impressed enough to show up at the Tower of Trials in a challenge / training session (Yojimbo, the Blade of Vengeance). Wol manages to convince Yojimbo to be a Summonable Aeon for him during the Dream Within a Dream - Conclusion, and Yuna subsequently summons Yojimbo as one of her Aeons during a Contest of Aeons in A Lonely Dream.

Behaviour[edit | edit source]

When facing Yojimbo solo, he usually starts with a Zanmato attack, which takes all of your orbs. He then follows with 2 turns of Kozuka and Wakizashi attacks. If dropped below 50% health, he switches the Zanmato to Zanmato X, which takes your HP as well. Be prepared for healing!

Daigoro is present with Yojimbo, but he does nothing.
During Yojimbo's second ranked event A Lonely Dream, Yuna summons him as a Boss, and she provides him with support boons instead of Daigoro.

Ranked event: Yojimbo, the Blade of Vengeance[edit | edit source]

In this conflict, Yojimbo demands a ransom of [LIFE] life orbs at the beginning of every turn. He responds with different attacks depending on how satisfied he is with your offering. Meet his demand, and he gives you a boost! Meet part of his demand, and he throws his mid-grade attacks at you. Meet none of his demand, and he'll slice you with his Zanmato X, or his Zantetsuken, killing you on the spot!

Yojimbo's dog Daigoro sticks by his side, dispelling ailments from him, or casting Slowga on you every turn! Daigoro is not targetable, and cannot be damaged.

Battle 1[EARTH]Yojimbo
Maximum Drops Yojimbo Quartz x2

Yojimbo is a ★3 difficulty battle available in the Ring of Braves during the event period. Battling Yojimbo costs 50 Multiplayer Stamina, with a Seed prismatic.pngskillseed multiplier of 5. Players have 40 minutes to defeat him.

Though not displayed, Yojimbo apparently also has a natural Critical Resist Up (enhanced effect).pngCritical Resist Up, so casting Critical Resist Down (effect).png Critical Resist Down on him will be important if your attacks rely on Critical bonuses.

Each turn, Yojimbo will throw a single, powerful attack that can easily consume over 7000 HP. Be prepared! His attacks also remove one elemental orb from each player, excluding [LIFE]life orbs. This includes taking [PRISMATIC]prismatic orbs!

In addition, Yojimbo's trusty sidekick Daigoro is on hand during the entire fight. He cannot be targeted, avoided, or killed. Luckily, Daigoro only works as a support agent. If his master has an ailment, Daigoro will use his Howl to remove one ailment that turn. If there are no ailments present, then he'll instead cast Slowga on the entire party, usually nullifying the Haste (effect).pngHaste that your team has set up.

When Yojimbo drops to 50% health, he immediately invokes Perfect Defense (effect).pngPerfect Defense, stopping any further attacks or ailments from taking effect for the rest of the turn. He then slashes a Zanmato X at the entire party, eliminating all elemental orbs (excluding, again, [LIFE]life orbs), and reduces everyone's HP to 1. It pays greatly to have a Healer in the party with a large number of Life orbs to recover everyone's health, or a Breaker with a full Ultimate Gauge to break him, or Yojimbo's next turn will likely wipe out the party.

Gameplay tips[edit | edit source]

  • Items with Life Element Starter and Life Orb Draw are very useful, given the frequent Zanmato strikes.
  • Keep a Haste (effect).pngHaste spell from something going, or Daigoro will knock you to only 1 action per turn! A good way to avoid this is also to load a bunch of ailments on Yojimbo, which will keep Daigoro busy dispelling.
  • Since Yojimbo casts Perfect Defense (effect).pngPerfect Defense at the 50% health mark, you will need to Break him at least twice. Keep a watch for that 50% threshold, and consider holding back your moves if it's likely they'll just hit that barrier. Be prepared for his Zanmato X afterward.
  • Yojimbo's Perfect Defense (effect).pngPerfect Defense also guarantees that Daigoro will cast his Slowga just before YJ's Zanmato X, so ailments won't help you here. You'll need to block it with a Haste (effect).pngHaste, Veil (enhanced effect).pngVeil, or Immune to ailments (enhanced effect).pngImmune to ailments, or recovering from the 1 HP will be difficult.
  • Warrior of Light: FFI's Ultimate Ability casts Divine Shield (effect).pngDivine Shield, which blocks all effects of Zanmato X!
