BahamutSHIN

Bahamut SIN in Advent Children.

Bahamut SIN (バハムート震, Bahamūto Shin?, lit. Bahamut Tremor) is a form of Bahamut summoned by Kadaj's Summon Materia to destroy the Meteorfall monument in Edge, as well as wreak havoc on the populace, in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.

The party members of Final Fantasy VII engage it in battle and it is ultimately destroyed by Cloud's Climhazzard Limit Break.

The attack Bahamut SIN uses in the game is not named in Advent Children or related materials. However in Final Fantasy VII, each form of Bahamut uses an ability whose increases in SI prefix starting with Bahamut and Megaflare (10002). The third, Bahamut ZERO, uses Teraflare (10004), and Bahamut Sin's successor, Bahamut Fury, uses Exaflare (10006). Therefore it could be assumed Bahamut SIN's ability is Petaflare (10005). Bahamut SIN's strongest ability in Final Fantasy Record Keeper is Petaflare.

Etymology and symbolismEdit

The (Shin?) in Bahamut SIN's Japanese name derives from the Japanese fighter plane, the J7W1 Shinden (震電). ? means shake or tremor. It is also likely a pun on the English word Sin which transcribed into Japanese (シン, shin?) would be pronounced the same. Sins is a theme of Advent Children.

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.

Bahamut SIN's design was inspired by the culture of the Jōmon period in Japanese history, as its designer Takayuki Takeya felt that Bahamut's image of a winged dragon was set, and he wanted a particular aesthetic to make Bahamut SIN more unique from other incarnations.
