Amaterasu appears as one of the many summoned monsters that the Explorers fight during their quest for crystals. Initially taking the guise of a woman named Surama, she attempts to convince the player character that utilizing the crystals will inevitably kill the planet and that the Eidolons exist to prevent such an outcome from happening. While she inevitably does battle against them, she holds hope that they will be able to find a path where humanity can prosper without causing the death of the planet.
Her weapons of choice are seven swords that hover behind or around her. She appears to have an affinity with fire, as seen in her render and screenshots, where she is wreathed in fiery energy. Explorers fight the summon in the ruins of the Donnyglen, a ship used years ago in previous expeditions.
Her Trance Surge is Worldmaker, which causes a giant dark rift to erupt on the earth.
Amaterasu appears on Triple Triad cards in the version of Triple Triad available via the Final Fantasy Portal App.
Amaterasu, full name Amaterasu-no-Mikoto (literally "August Person who Makes the Heavens Shine"), is the Japanese goddess of the sun, born from the right eye of Izanagi-no-Okami while he was washing himself after his journey into the underworld to rescue his wife Izanami. After her birth, she was assigned to rule the High Plains of Heaven, receiving Izanagi's necklace of rulership as a symbol of this charge. Amaterasu ended up in a long-standing feud with her brother Susano-o, but ironically the two deities' descendents are the ancestors of Jimmu-tenno, the legendary first emperor of Japan.
- Amaterasu's incarnation as an anthropomorphic dog and her attack's title in Final Fantasy Legends: Toki no Suishō are references to the 2006 Clover Studio action adventure series Ōkami.
