Superheroine Stage Show
Only with your spirited show of support can Mighty Maidens Mumor and Uka hope to prevail in their battle against evil! Find out more about how you can lend a hand to our irresistibly adorable heroines by speaking to a moogle posted near the show's venues at the following locations:
Northern San d'Oria (G-8) / Bastok Markets (I-7) / Windurst Walls (G-11)
Those who aid Mumor in her fight against Ullegore will receive an Agent (♂) / Starlet (♀) costume as well as other rewards! Be the envy of all your friends!
- Speak to the MHMU Moogle in one of the following positions:
- Travel to the stage area for that city and wait for the performance to begin.
- Use the /cheer motion, ,/wave motion, & /clap motion emotes while targeting Mumor to encourage her to use dances. Make a couple of macros alternating these emotes over and over to solo this event. Otherwise you will struggle without a partner.
- Target Uka and synchronize your dance with Mumor.
- When Mumor uses "Shining Summer Samba", use the emote /dance1 motion.
- When Mumor uses "Lovely Miracle Waltz", use the emote /dance2 motion.
- When Mumor uses "Neo Crystal Jig", use the emote /dance3 motion.
- When Mumor uses "Super Crusher Jig", use the emote /dance4 motion.
- Name your dance macros after the corresponding dances to easily preform them. Please use motion after each of them so you aren't "that guy" and spam the chat log needlessly.
- When you use the proper dance, you will get a message stating that your dancing has been synchronized with Mumor.
- When Uka reaches 10% she will snap out of her trance and come back to the air of Mumor.
- When the performance is over, return to the MHMU Moogle around the corner to receive your prize
- The prize that you receive may be dependent on how many times your dances were synchronized. With no synchronized dances, you will not receive a prize.
- 15 to 440 fireworks.
- If the Moogle tells you that your performance makes you the MVP, you will receive a set of either Agent or Starlet armor.
- This requires synchronizing all four of Mumor's Firesday Night Fever dances. Even if you failed to sync the previous dances.
- Upon receiving your Agent or Starlet armor, recompleting the event again with 10+ synced dances will result in the following rewards from the moogle:
- Used to craft a Celestial Globe furnishing along with the other two rewards from other Sunbreeze minigames.
- (KI) After-party pass
- If you come into the event late and do not have many synced dances, you may save your current amount for the next showing. Assuming you don't zone which will reset progress.
Support Your Heroines!
After the curtain has closed on the Superhroine Stage Show, Mumor, Uka, and either Foudeel, Bashraf, or Wahboud will appear to sell a variety of items for your perusal!
Purchasing items between shows results in faster synchronization with Mumor (a message will be displayed in the chat log to that effect).

The After Party
This fight is intended for Item Level >117 players (CL117), and Trusts may not be called.
Any reasonably geared DD sub Ninja for shadows should be able to solo this fight as Ullegore's most threatening aspect is his casting of single target tier 5 elemental magic.
- See; Mumor's Encore for more fight specifics.
The Superheroine Stage Show is certainly a spectacle to behold, but why limit yourself to sticking to the sidelines? Several minigames are available for you to enjoy in the three locations listed below. "To the victor go the spoils!" – winning a minigame will reward you with some fabulous prizes only available during the Sunbreeze Festival. Act now, before it's too late!
Southern San d'Oria (H-9) / Port Bastok (K-8) / Windurst Woods (K-12)
All minigames cost 10 gil to play each time. While wearing your Agent or Starlet outfit you will be able to play the game in "hard mode".
The goal is to spot the difference in each scene. Failing means you must start over.
- Two Elvaan females walking and using emotes. Either their walking speed, turning, or emote will vary.
- Four Elvaan males doing the "/hurray" emote in pairs. One pair will have different weapons.
- Six Tarutarus running towards you in pairs. Select the pair that have different hair colors.
- Two Hume males wearing armor. The camera tilts up, and one of their armor pieces will varies. It may be anything except their leg slot.
- A large group of varied races. Matching poses will nod in pairs and you need to spot the one shaking their head.
- A pair of Tarutarus running past a post to the left and right. Each of the pairs will have one Tarutaru with blonde hair and the one with red hair. When the identical tarutarus are facing each other press enter.
Scenes will cycle back. Normal mode requires 7 differences in a row. Hard mode requires 9.
Quick Draw McGraw! You have one minute to shoot as many enemies as possible while aboiding hitting a Pixie.
A target will pop up for a briuef moment and you will be prompted to "shoot" or "wait" which will skip to the next target. Shooting a pixie will end the game so choose wait to save time and move to the next target.
Normal requires 20 targets hit while hard mode requires 30.
Time to pick up chicks! We all know that women don't play FFXI so that means Chocobo chicks.
You will have one minute once again in order to move your chocobo left or right in order to collect the baby chocobos. Beware as there are Mandragora mixed into this as well. Yes, you guessed it; collecting a Mandragora immediately ends the game in failure.
Timing is everything in this game. You will need to get a feel for it, but collecting a chick needs to be done slightly before the line.
Normal requires 20 chicks, and hard mode requires 35.
As is tradition for the Sunbreeze Festival, the ever popular goldfish scoop will be held once more. Don't let those slippery little buggers get away! Try your hand in the following locations:
West Ronfaure (G-10) / South Gustaberg (E-8) / East Sarutabaruta (H-8) / Rabao (F-7)
