Bahamut is a non-elemental Rank III Flying Esper in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. It is first summoned by the Judge of Wings in the Underfane of Yaxin Qul, after the battle with Belias. Bahamut then proceeds to ascend into the heavens and cast his spear down into The Muruc Cahuac Skysea, breaking it into a chain of islands. The party escapes on the Galbana, only to crash land on Tswarra, Isle of the Lost. During the final battle with Feolthanos Exultant, Bahamut is summoned after Feolthanos Medi loses a substantial amount of health.
Bahamut can be obtained as a Summon in Mission 79: Wings of Midnight. The party must fight a gauntlet of Rank III Espers, including Ifrit, Shiva, Ramuh, and Titan, before Bahamut appears. His normal attack, Bahamut Claw, deals damage to all foes in range, while his special attack Mega Flare causes massive non-elemental damage to all targets in a designated area and inflicts Disable.
Bahamut is a both draconic and masculine figure. His whole body is armored, most of his tips, including his wings' edges and the tip of the tail is set with a sharp knife-like point, almost like spear edges. From his head to the 'knees', he is covered entirely with plates. His eyes are initially cyan, but turns crimson red when performing Megaflare. His eyes are completely red in the FMV though. Behind his head is a long, braid-like twine with a sharp point. From his torso, shoulders, arms and palms are plated, possibly also his claws. He has three fingers though. Beneath him, he wears a wygar by his 'hipss' while it is covered with a penile spaulders and the behind spaulder. His armors are silver, purpluish-grey and lavender in color of each different and distinctive parts. His tail is draconic, almost twice longer than his entire body, and tipped with a triple jagged spear-like edge. His feet are heavily avian-like, having two frontal digits while a solitary back digit. The tip of his longest 'feather', is as long as his tail, also as sharp as a sword. His spear is very large, slightly or significantly larger than Mateus's. Yet comparably longer. His spear is heavily double-bladed, almost like a very thick halberd perfect for thrusting even the hardest protectives.
Bahamut has the most tremendous Strength and Attack power growth to made up for his slow attacks. His Attack Speed is 20 - 28, exactly 3.5 seconds till 2.95 seconds(simplified calculation). Even for his tremendous might in both physical and magickal, he is only a single digit weaker compared to Chaos. He has the lowest Speed amongst all Rank III Flying Espers though, and slightly slower than Exodus by 2 point in Attack Speed. Bahamut's basic attack, Bahamut Claw deals damage to all foes in range in front of him. Bahamut's Megaflare, inflicts Disable and deals heavy damage to all foes in range, have 30 seconds of charge time and becomes 23 seconds(rounded off) when Bahamut is Hasted.
Bahamut, having the most exemplary and strongest in Strength and Attack amongst all of the Flying Espers. His Magick is also tremendously strong, yet only a pinch weaker than Chaos's. His Bahamut Claw attack deals damage to all foes in range, perfect for attacking any type of enemies. Bahamut's Megaflare is exceptionally useful, to deal heavy damage and also inflicts Disable to all foes in range is like to cripple an enemy to their knees.
Bahamut has and great and balanced stats. His Speed is his weakest asset. His Megaflare magick may be very useful, but it takes a very long time to recharge. Since Bahamut is susceptible to Slow and Sleep, making him extra slow if both are inflicted to him. His movement speed is slow, he can still be a sucker to any Ranged units.
