The Tournesol is the strongest Greatsword available in Final Fantasy XII. Its license is found at the bottom right corner of the License Board. While it appears that the sword needs only three respective loots to synthesize, those items must also be synthesized first, and the total eight loots required can be very hard to obtain in numbers.

The Tournesol costs 225 LP; and 600,000 Gil. It has an attack power of 140, topped only by the game's strongest weapon, Zodiac Spear. While lacking a few points in attack power, the Tournesol exceeds the Zodiac Spear in terms of multi-hit and evasion rate.
