|“||I am the wellspring of darkness, fed by Zemus's unbridled hate... I am He who is called Zeromus... I am he who knows naught but hate!||„|
|~ Zeromus before fighting the party|
After Zemus goaded Fusoya and Golbez into killing him with a Twin Meteor attack, Zemus's consciousness survived and became Zeromus, quickly incapacitating his fellow Lunarians before leaving to attempt to destroy humanity. Cecil and his party attempt to intervene, but are defeated as well. However, the prayers of everyone on Earth reached them, allowing them to rise up once more, filling the Crystal with power and allowing it to nullify Zeromus's intangibility, allowing him to be vanquished once and for all.

Intelligence: Zeromus is Zemus's consciousness and hatred manifest, giving it full access to all of Zemus's memories and abilities while freeing him from a physical form, as proven by the party's failed initial attempt to stop him and his quick triumph over Golbez and Fusoya by casting Meteor. Despite his appearance, he is far from a mindless beast, adapting his strategy to match the heroes, using Osmose in the face of Rydia's summons and Flare when struck with Black Magic.
Weaknesses: Big Bang is telegraphed by Zeromus's shaking and movements, allowing for preparation and counterattacks. His intangibility can be negated by the Crystal.
- Big Bang: Unleashes a massive burst of energy that deals heavy magical damage and inflicts Sap, rapidly draining the vitality of anyone affected until they succumb to their injuries.
- Black Hole: Creates a magical black hole that rips away any enchantments, buffs, or special protections on his targets.
- Whirl: Generates a powerful maelstrom that reduces the targets' HP to single-digits, rendering them vulnerable to being felled by nearly any additional blow.
