Amber Bahamut is one of the three final Bahamut bosses the party must face as part of the final battle in Final Fantasy XIII-2. Of the two bodyguards of Jet Bahamut, Amber Bahamut utilizes magical attacks and also halves damage from them. Amber Bahamut also halves damage from the counter of the two elements Garnet Bahamut has resistances to.

StrategyEdit

Amber Bahamut only has 141,200 HP, making it relatively easy to take down. With a relatively average Chain Resistance, average-leveled parties at this point in the game will be able to switch to a Paradigm such as Relentless Assault (RAV/RAV/COM) to quickly Stagger Amber Bahamut, and then switch to the Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) Paradigm to make quick work of the foe.

Amber Bahamut commonly casts powerful magic spells on the party, and is capable of causing some minor status ailments. Amber Bahamut is arguably the weaker of the two sidekicks Jet Bahamut calls forth, as its attacking power is relatively low. Multicast and Light Eruption do low amounts of damage but his Apparition Ray can bring a character down to around 10% health. Like Garnet Bahamut, Amber Bahamut is capable of being resurrected by Jet Bahamut.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Bahamut (Arabic بهموت Bahamūt) originated as an enormous whale in ancient pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. Upon Bahamut's back stands a bull with four thousand eyes, ears, noses, mouths, tongues and feet called Kujuta (also spelled "Kuyutha"). Between each of these is a distance of a 500-year journey. On the back of Kujuta is a mountain of ruby. Atop this mountain is an angel who carries six hells, earth, and seven heavens on its shoulders.

Another version of the Arabic story is that Bahamut is indeed a dragon and he stands on a whale called Liwash.

In modern times, the game Dungeons & Dragons is responsible for re-imagining Bahamut as the king of dragons, a benevolent Platinum Dragon; the opposite of the malevolent Tiamat, the five-headed Chromatic Queen of Dragons.

The Japanese names of the three Winged Chaos Bahamuts are translated as Bahamut Volo, Bahamut Passio, and Bahamut Ratio. Volo is the Latin word for "fly" or '"will'", while Passio and Ratio are the Latin words for "passion" and "reason", respectively.

TriviaEdit

  • Amber Bahamut somewhat resembles the left half of Orphan. They share similar coloring, identical arm positions, and excels in magic and healing spells.
