Polka, Surrounded by Glowing Agogos

Polka, surrounded by glowing agogos

An agogo is a gentle, spherical floating creature generally found within Agogo Forest in the World of Eternal Sonata. Naturally shy and secretive, they generally tend to avoid the presence of humans, but seem not to mind the presence of forest guardians.

Agogos normally emit only a dim light, but the legends of the guardians of Agogo Forest state that they will glow in the presence of someone who has a powerful astra. As such, they glow brightly in the presence of Polka, who, according to her mother, has an astra that shines brighter than anyone else in the whole world.

Count Waltz, the leader of Forte, has been searching for glowing agogos based on research that indicates that mixing them with mineral powder will increase its potency by a power of tenfold. This is later proved true when Legato drinks the enhanced mineral powder and transforms into the monstrous Ruined Body.

The Agogo Queen Mother is a special type of agogo that gives birth to all of the other agogos. It is said that she possesses mysterious powers, which prove to be of help when Polka collapses and falls into a comatose state due to her illness.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In the Xbox 360 version of Eternal Sonata, the sequence in which Polka collapses is absent and the party never meets the Agogo Queen Mother.
  • The PlayStation 3 release of Eternal Sonata reveals much more about the agogos, including that the guardians of Agogo Forest have a legend about them and their connection to astras, and making it more clear that the agogos specifically glow because they are in the presence of Polka's powerful astra.
  • In the Xbox 360 version of Eternal Sonata, Count Waltz claims to have eyewitness reports of glowing agogos, a claim that is not made in the PlayStation 3 release.


  • An agogô is a traditional type of bell that may be the oldest samba instrument.[1]
