Best Skyrim Final Fantasy Mods: Weapons, Armor, Followers & MoreThis post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
In Skyrim, worlds often collide.
The amazing support provided by mods led to the creation of the most improbable crossovers, almost turning the game into a massive playground where everything is truly possible.
On the other hand, there are some crossovers that almost feel like they belong in the Skyrim universe.
And Final Fantasy + Skyrim is one of those crossovers where they just seem like they’re made for eachother. Like PB & J.
So get your hair gel ready, because we’re about to see a lot of spiky Square-Enix hair.
10. Final Fantasy X Brotherhood Sword
There are quite a few things that make Final Fantasy X a very remarkable experience.
And no, I’m not talking about that horrible laughing scene.
Tidus’ main weapon in the game is the Brotherhood Sword. It’s that blue watery sword you see on the box art.
And it has become so iconic to the series that it just had to make its appearance in Skyrim, in all of its crystal clear watery glory.
9. Serah Farron Follower
Serah Farron may not be the most popular gal in the Final Fantasy series, but oh boy does she pack a mean punch!
Now the damsel-in-distress-turned main heroine can join you as a follower thanks to this amazing mod.
It introduces a custom-made model and a moveset inspired by the three roles assigned to Serah in Final Fantasy XIII-2.
This is more than enough to make you forget about the horrible naming conventions of the series!
8. Aerith – Clothes and Hairstyle
Far below the city’s glow lies a flower blooming in the shadow. A flower that hits like a steampunk truck!
This mod adds Aerith’s outfit and hairstyle to Skyrim, so that you can pretty much turn your character into the flower girl from the Sector 5 Slums and save the world armed with the power of the White Materia.
Just make sure to avoid white-haired handsome ex-SOLDIER members, and very long swords. They do not mix well with her. At all.
7. FF13 Blazefire Saber
Guardians of the Skyrim lore, please turn your backs for a couple of seconds. You don’tt want to burst a vein looking at his totally non-lorefriendly mod.
Final Fantasy XIII Blazefire Saber introduces Lightning’s weapon into Skyrim.
Such a weapon would have no right appearing in Skyrim, but we do like mods here… and so we can do whatever we want. Because it looks badass, right?
Ah, the power of freedom! And mods, of course.
6. Masamune Mod
Estuans interius. Ira vehementi. Estuans interius. Ira vehementi. Sephiroth
This little intro should be more than enough to tell every Final Fantasy fan what the Masamune Mod does.
And now you can bring Sephiroth’s sword to Skyrim in two variants that should instill fear into the heart of every creature you stumble upon.
Assuming you can find all the ingredients needed to forge it, that is.
5. FF7 Remake Buster Sword
Wherever Sephiroth appears, you’re sure to find Cloud Strife close by.
The two are linked by destiny, no matter the era, no matter the world!
And this Buster Sword Sword mod is following closely on our list here, too.
It’s among the most detailed modded weapons ever made for Skyrim. Especially being based on another game.
Specifically, this is based upon last year’s Final Fantasy VII Remake model. The sword looks amazingly detailed in all its variants, which include 1K, 2K, and 4K resolution textures.
Just make sure to clean the blade every now and then: at such high resolutions, you don’t want any dirt showing up.
4. Rikku FFX
Rikku from FFX managed to make a breach into every player’s heart thanks to her cheerful personality.
And for other reasons I’d rather not mention here.
If you’re so enamored with the beautiful blonde Al Bhed and can’t live a day without thinking about her, you’d better install this Rikku FFX mod.
Then you can make her your follower in Skyrim. Easy-peasy!
Sadly you cannot make her your waifu… but hey, at least she’s finally acknowledged your existence.
3. The Ultimate Final Fantasy Playermodel Pack
The Ultimate Final Fantasy Playermodel Pack for Skyrim will help you bring about the ultimate crossover.
Well, the ultimate series crossover, to be precise.
This player model pack includes a Seymour model from Final Fantasy X, a Squall Leonhart model from Final Fantasy VIII, and a whopping three Cloud Strife models from Final Fantasy VII.
No better way to turn the passage of time into a nostalgia trip than by switching from Cloud Shinra footsoldier to Cloud 1st Class Soldier, trust me!
2. Round Based Combat
Enough with all these modded weapons and character models. It’s time to turn Skyrim into a JRPG.
Or something very close to it, at the very least.
This Round Based Combat mod is an extremely interesting add-on that completely overhauls Skyrim’s combat with a turn-based system.
It comes complete with new menu-based interface, a separate battle arena, and a victory screen.
Protip: Install some music mods, then download the classic FF victory fanfare for maximum accuracy.
1. Final Fantasy Skyrim
The Dragons have returned to Tamriel. And so have the gods of yore.
This massive Final Fantasy Skyrim mod shows what happens to the forces of evil when the Dragonborn teams up with Shiva, Ifrit, Carbuncle, Ramuh, and all the other summons seen in the Final Fantasy series.
Not only that, but you also get some new allies that will help you harness the ancient powers of the summoned spirits, and new spells inspired by the Final Fantasy series.
If (for some weird reason) you can only download a single Final Fantasy inspired mod, this is the one you should snag, period.
