SQUARE ENIX HAS MANY SUMMONS.FROM IFRIT TO DIABLO.If you were to choose a summoned creature which one(s) would fit you.From which FINAL FANTASY would they come from?My summons would be

1.IFRIT(FFX)

2.SHIVA(FFXIII)

this is tough... I love all the FF summons... but





Famfrit





Mateus





FFTA was my first FF, and FF12 had these two again... although I miss Famfrit's laser

Shiva (Final Fantasy VIII)


Anima (Final Fantasy X)





I thought all summons in XIII were a let down and shells of their former selves.

I like Chaos in FFXII. I also like Ifrit in FFX & regular Bahamut in FFVII.

I think I like BAHAMUT from FFX myself.I never played FFXI,but BAHAMUT looks more like a dragon in that one.I'm hoping squeenix comes out with a FINAL FANTASY based on those beloved summons.It'll be like the summon battles you had against the other summoner in FFX.

I'm a huge summoned creature fan. The top one in my head right now is the Knights of the Round (VII), but I have a huge list and nothing particularly stands out!

I also want to say, I love the way TA2 handled combining classic summons with the summoner class and the OP espers... but I kind of wish it was handled oppositely (summon the Ivalice espers to fight for you, while the old FF summons would unleash a devasting global attack like the good ole days)

Hecatoncheir (FFXIII)





and Shiva (FFX)





I too love all the summons, my least favourite is the Magus Sisters, but i still like it.

I've always been fond of Shiva. My made-up back story on her she's this whimsical goddess that does whatever she wants, serves whoever she wants, and you best appreciate it, lol.


I fell in love with the FFVIII design, then FFIX, but FFX really took the cake with her. Absolutely sensual and stunning.


That said, I raged over how she was portrayed in FFXIII. Nevermind the somewhat provacative positioning of her gestalt form that had Snow riding on for a psuedo three-way, but she wasn't even a singular entity anymore. Why'd she have to turn in a pair of sisters? >_>


On a related note, the only summon I actually liked in FFXIII was Odin, but I can admit it was probably more because he was Lightning's. Though it was only him and Bahamut whose "transformer mode" I liked.


I do like a bunch of other summons, but Shiva is my number 1 ^^

I guess it was only a matter of time before we saw the list XD





I guess I should edit mine... FF8 and FF12 seem to stand out for me as having the coolest summons. Now that I've seen your list and remember those summons (you seem to have more favorites from those two games as well). Ima go and play FF12 again now... I blame you.

Jihad/Crusader from VI.

But yeah, if I had to chose I mean, I would definately have Ifrit than any other summon. I'm not much of a fire person, I always enjoy White Mages and Summoners for gameplay style but my zodiac says my element is wind. /shrugs.

Odin FF13 because of the Gestault mode. I enjoy horse back riding and to get to ride one while wielding those giant swords would be awesome.


Also, Bahamut FFIX. My favorite Bahamut of all the games.

I'm a motorcyle guy myself so Shiva from Final Fantasy XIII would probably be mine. Otherwise it'd be Brynhildr (also from FFXIII). If you can't have a bike, a car's the next best thing.

You're welcome. XD


I was going to just simply mention in that list post that VIII was the game I most enjoyed summoning in, on all accounts, followed by X (where I forgot Valefor and Bahamut), XII, and XIII (I was also going to mention about the Shiva yuri-bike, which I don't mind really).


And then I remembered: Leviathan from Revenant Wings would probably be the one that I'd personally identify myself with.

The Esper under the Cancer zodiac sign is Zeromus. (Yes, it was based off of that Zeromus from FFIV.)

So Famfrit is Aquarius? *meep* Oh well, I still think Hashmal is awesome.

Yes, Famfrit is Aquarius, and Hashmal is Leo.

Odin from Final Fantasy Tactics, mainly because that was one of my first FFs. Also guess who likes ancient mythologies?

By the way only one for a person so choose carefully. But if you can't restrain yourself from making a list I'll make an exception.

Mine is a three way toss up. I really cant choose:
Odian from Final Fantasy VII (because of all his different summoning cinematics)
Anima from Final Fantasy X
Shiva from Final Fantasy VIII

Diablos from FF8. (Spent days trying to beat this guy)

Definitely Anima from FFX. I could just feel the pain that it felt, and I'd never really experienced that with any other summons.

I would say Ifrit for me, I actually didnt liked him, when i played FF3(6) cause of green skin it look didnt right design,but I still use him since fire elemental is my favorite elemental. During FF7 It was getting better, I actually liked him that time, until FF8 and FFX came, with the right design looks, it become my favorite summon ever! Before I liked ifrit, I actually liked Maduin from FF3(6) & Bahamunt =P

My favorite summon was Odin from XIII series, but when it comes to batte difficulty, it's Zodiark from XII. I spend so many megalixirs during that fight, lol.

member_10822883
6th Aug 2012, 13:11
I also really love Bahamut in III; there's something so thrilling about him being one of the game's first bosses, in which you can't win, and then coming back late game and kicking his ass. Oh, and of course, why use Flare when Mega Flare costs the exact same MP cost? :P

I am with you on that one, I beat Ultima easily comapred to freakin Zodiark, I breezed through the 1st 70% of his hp and then all hell broke loose when his paling activated, that is my most memorable battle in FF XII. My favorite summon by a mile is Bahamut(and all his incarnations,zero, neo, fury, sin, dark e.t.c) with my favorite being Neo Bahamut from VII.
