- “Emperor among the scions, able to reduce to nothing aught he strikes with a single vengeful blow of his fist, created in opposition to Deudalephon the Benevolent, scion of light. Though he was made by the gods to quell the fiends that raged in the Otherworld, his immense strength and fearsome visage drew the fiends to his side, and turned him against his creators. Adrammelech rose to prominence in the Otherworld, whence he led a fiendish horde against the gods, but in the end, he was defeated.”

Adrammelech is associated with the element of Lightning, and is an optional Esper in Final Fantasy XII. Despite his dragon-like form, there are several parts in relevance to a goat, most notably his goat-like head and the cloven hooves on his feet. Due to his power over Thunder, his color sign is Yellow. Adrammelech is also referred to as the Makara Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology.
He is fought in the middle of the Zertinan Caverns and summons several undead to aid him during the fight. Once defeated, he can be summoned by the player. Adrammelech's standard special attack is Flash Arc, a powerful thunder-elemental attack, and its ultimate attack is Judgment Bolt, which does thunder-elemental damage to all enemies in range.
Adrammelech's license costs 25 LP, and he requires one Mist Charge to summon.
Flash Arc: A Thunder-elemental attack. It is like the standard higher level Thunder spell.
Judgment Bolt: A Thunder-elemental attack, and Adrammelech's ultimate attack. Spiraling upwards, in high-speed flight, Adrammelech suffuses his body with electrical energy. The clouds surrounding Adrammelech darken. He then unleashes bolts of lightning from his body, sundering the ground around the enemy. This is followed by a blast of lightning striking the enemy directly, sending debris flying into the air.

Adrammelech can be summoned as a Scion by someone equipped with the Raging Brooch when the Smash Gauge is orange. His Wrath is called Judgement Bolt.
Adrammelech's incarnations as an Esper and a Totema are included in the Final Fantasy Trading Card Game as Thunder-elemental Summon cards.
Adramelech was a god called Baal Adramelech (Baal means "Lord" and melech means "King" in Hebrew) in Assyrian mythology. It is said that children were sacrificed to him, but Greek accounts saying that child sacrifice via burning them or placing them within a heated bronze statue of the god are not historically verifiable, as no archaeological proof of such a large, bronze statue exists.
Adramelech is considered a demon in Judeo-Christian tradition, being generally depicted with a human torso and head, and the rest of the body of a mule, a peacock, or some combination there of. He was described as "The enemy of God, greater in ambition, guile and mischief than Satan. A fiend more cursed — a deeper hypocrite".
