Trivia: Monsters

The name of the monsters in the Final Fantasy universe are often taken from different mythologies of the world. Here is a small list of some popular monsters, and what mythology they are taken from:
  • Behemoth - Jewish mythology. A huge monster and a symbol of evil.
  • Ahriman - Persian mythology. Personification of evil (In Final Fantasy games, ahrimans are one-eyed flying creatures, looking like bats).
  • Asura - Hindu mythology. A class of deities, as opposed to the "deva" (gods).
  • Grendel - English mythology, a monster fought by Beowulf
  • Tiamat - Babylonian mythology. Chaos, the mother of all things.
  • Kali - Hindu mythology. A mighty and often dangerous goddess of time and destruction.
Monsters a character can summon:
  • Ifrit - Arab mythology. A wicked spirit, also known as Jinn.
  • Shiva - Hindu mythology. One of the greatest gods, sometimes regarded as the God. Unfortunately for all fans of the Final Fantasy version of Shiva - he is a man.
  • Ramuh - "Ramuh" is maybe a form of "Rama", the incarnation of Vishnu in Hindu mythology.
  • Phoenix - Greek mythology. A bird that resurrects itself after dying (the item "phoenix down" also comes from there). The Asian phoenix (Chinese fenghuang is a different creature that might have been the inspiration for the monster as well.
  • Titan - Greek mythology. Titans were a class of deities that fought against the Olympic gods.
  • Siren - Greek mythology. A beautiful woman who charms sailors by singing to them.
  • Leviathan - Jewish mythology. A huge water creature. In modern Hebrew this word (לויתן, "livyatan") means "whale".
  • Fafnir - Norse mythology. A dragon that was defeated by the hero Sigurd.
  • Hades - Greek mythology. The world of the dead and also its ruler.
  • Quetzalcoatl - Central American mythology. One of the greater gods of the Aztecs.
  • Odin - Norse mythology. The most powerful god, the ruler of gods.
  • Gilgamesh - Sumerian / Akkadian mythology. A great hero and a legendary king.
  • Bahamut - Arab mythology. Is actually a translation of the Hebrew "behemoth". In Arab mythology, it is a big fish, not a dragon.
