Sin (シン, Shin) is a major antagonist in Final Fantasy X. It is a gargantuan whale-like beast which threatens the world of Spira. It was named by the people of Spira who believed the beast came into being as punishment for their ancestors relying on machina and becoming a hedonistic society. By following the teachings of Yevon, the people of Spira believe one day they will atone for their crimes and Sin will vanish.
Powers and Stats

Age: Over 1,000 years old as a concept, varies depending on the incarnation in terms of physical age
Classification: Yu Yevon's Pyrefly Armor
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Magic, Flight and Levitation, Gravity Manipulation, Elemental Manipulation (Of the fire, ice, lightning and water variety), Barrier Creation, Regeneration (Mid-High; takes an unspecified amount of time [Though implied to be generally less than a year] to reform after the Final Aeon defeats it, due to the nature of its creation, it likely requires an atmosphere saturated with Pyreflies to regenerate), Petrification, Life Creation (Uses Pyreflies from itself to form Fiends called Sinspawn)
Lifting Strength: Class E+ (Much stronger than the party that is able to withstand the monstrous increase in gravity Giga-Graviton generates from several kilometers away)
Striking Strength: Small Planet Class (Comparable to the Final Aeon)

Weaknesses: The Hymn of the Fayth (At least with Jecht actively resisting Sin's destructive impulses)
Giga Graviton: Sin's Overdrive. It's essentially high-level projectile gravity magic that, while being charged, generates a gravity field that can even pull in large objects (Extinction-level meteor-sized rocks from the moon, as an example) from thousands of kilometers away.
