Our FFX Lulu guide aims to provide details on who she is and what she brings to the party, including weapons, armour, and abilities. As a black mage, Lulu is proficient in black magic. She deals out impressive magic damage while also having great defence against the majority of spells thrown her way – a unique advantage for a black mage.

If you enjoy Final Fantasy X, chances are you’re a fan of JRPGs or role-playing games in general. In which case, you might want to check out our list of the best Switch RPGs and the best mobile RPGs. If you’re after a new Switch adventure, we recommend The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and we have handy guides such as BotW Zelda and BotW Link for you to check out. Oh, and if you prefer other Final Fantasy X characters, you’re in luck, as we have a FFX Auron guide, too.

FFX Lulu’s weapons

I’m going to be honest, Lulu’s weapon of choice creeps me out. There’s something about dolls that I just don’t like. Frankly, I don’t trust them. But, they help Lulu wreak magical havoc on her opponents, so there are some upsides to them.

There are many different dolls to collect, all of which attack the enemy in different ways and possess a range of dominant abilities that can aid in battle.

Such dolls include:

  • First upgrade gives no AP, and double overdrive
  • Second upgrade gives break damage limit, triple overdrive, magic booster, and one MP cost

FFX Lulu’s abilities

There’s a large range of abilities at Lulu’s disposal through the sphere grid, and given her affinity with magic, it should come as no surprise that she has many spells to choose from. The clue as to what each ability does tends to be in the name. For example, death, you don’t get much blunter and to the point than that, and it causes your opponent to, well, um, die.

Water Inflicts minor water elemental damage

As for Lulu’s overdrive, she uses fury which casts a flurry of up to sixteen spells, potentially decimating the opposing party. There really is nothing like a woman scorned.
