Specific LocationsEdit

Ramuh, Kirin, Siren, and Cait SithEdit

These Magicite are given to you by Ramuh in Zozo. These are impossible to miss, given that you have to talk to Ramuh to move the plot along.

Ifrit and ShivaEdit

They can both be found at bottom of a pit in the Magitek Factory. To advance the plot, you must fight and defeat them. Once beaten, they yield their Magicite to you. You only need to pick up Shiva to continue with the game.

Unicorn, Maduin, Catoblepas, Phantom, Carbuncle, and BismarckEdit

Shortly before leaving the Magitech Factory, all of these Espers give their Magicite to you. You can't really avoid taking them.

Golem and Zona SeekerEdit

These can both be found in the Auction house in Jidoor. You just need to buy them.


This Magicite can be bought from a traveling salesman in Tzen for 3000 gil in the World of Balance or 10 gil in the World of Ruin. You learn of this man in either the WoB, or the WoR from one of the old men near the dock area. The man is walking/hiding behind some trees in the upper-right corner of the town, all the way in the back.


After getting the airship in the World of Ruin, return to Cid's Island, and you will find this Magicite on the beach.


After defeating Humbaba in Mobliz for the first time, a kid will give this to you if you talk to him.


Go to Narche and go back to where you defended him before. If you manage to defeat him, the Magicite is yours.


This can be found in Umaro's Cave in Narshe, simply search the skull there, and it's yours.


Defeat Chadarnook in Owzer's house in Jidoor, and collect it from Owzer's bookshelf.


Go to Doma in the World of Ruin and do the entire Cyan quest. At the end of the quest, it will be sitting on the throne in the throne room.


Go to the star shaped mountain range north of Tzen and land in the middle. Complete the dungeon, and Locke will give you this Magicite.


Find Deathgaze while flying around in the airship. Defeat him, and Bahamut is yours.


Defeat all 8 dragons, and this Magicite will suddenly be given to you.

Odin and RaidenEdit

Go to Figaro Castle, in the World of Ruin, and try to move the castle somewhere else. It will get stuck under the sand, and you can enter a new cave via a hole in the prison level. Go through the cave and enter the Ancient Castle there. Walk straight ahead and talk to the statue of Odin. It will yield the Odin Magicite. To get the Raiden, stand on the right throne, walk five steps down and press the A button. A secret passageway will open. Go down it, and you will find a statue of the Queen. Talk to it, and the Odin Magicite will become the Raiden Magicite. Once you transform Odin, it is lost, so learn any spells you want from it before "upgrading" it. *Note Odin is the only esper in the game who can boost your speed stat.*


In the World of Ruin, go to the Narshe Weapon Shop with Locke, and he will unlock the door. Inside, a man will ask you if you would rather have the sword Ragnarok or the Magicite Ragnarok. Choose the Magicite, and it will be yours.


After the events at Figaro Castle, go to either the port at South Figaro or Nikeah. Say you want to board the ship, and Leviathan will attack you mid-way.


Buy the Excalipoor at the Auction House for 500,000 gil, then wager it at the Colosseum. This fight doesn't use restrictions in the Colosseum. There is a guy outside of the auction who will mention the sword, you must speak to him in order to bring the blade up for sale.


Defeat ten Cactuars in the desert south of Maranda and then Gigantuar will attack.


Unlock the Dragon's Den by completing the game and defeating the 8 dragons, then defeat the Kaiser Dragon at the end.
