This fearsome monster has enormous hooves, a great furry mane, gigantic horns, and a thick muscular tail.

Behemoths are powerful quadruped monsters in Final Fantasy Tactics. They rank among the most difficult monsters due to their HP and physical attack stats. In addition to their melee strikes, each race of Behemoth can learn a destructive magical attack via the Monster Skill support ability, so recruiting one of each can make for a powerful team. During the War of the Lions, Ramza saves Luso Clemens from a horde of Behemoths during a cutscene.


Rank I

Behemoths are the "weakest" of their genus, but they still pack the devastating horns and teeth that can take out weaker mages in one hit.

Rank II
Behemoth King

Behemoth Kings are basically Behemoths with even more HP.

Rank III
Dark Behemoth

If it is possible for Behemoth Kings to get any more difficult, the Dark Behemoth can pack on nearly 900 HP at optimum levels. Almagest is a great magical attack. A Dark Behemoth is one of the few monsters powerful enough to be a worthy addition to your party.
