Bismarck (ビスマルク, Bisumaruku?), also called Bismark, is a recurring creature in the Final Fantasy series, mostly appearing as a summoned monster in the form of an aquatic creature resembling a whale.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Bismarck is an esper and takes Leviathan's place as Final Fantasy VI's Water-elemental summon, but in the Advance and following versions, Leviathan returns as the ultimate Water-elemental summon. Bismarck is obtained automatically in the Magitek Research Facility. Its summon ability, Breach Blast (also known as Sea Song), deals Water-elemental damage to all opponents. Its Spell Power is 58, costs 50 MP to summon, and it is unblockable. As a magicite, it teaches Fire (x20), Blizzard (x20), Thunder (x20) and Raise (x2). At level up, it provides a +2 boost to Strength.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Pteraketos 1 (FFXI)

Though Bismarck does not appear as a summon in Final Fantasy XI, it is the name of a server and a Pteraketos-type Notorious Monster.

Final Fantasy XIIIEdit

Bismarck.

An aquatic fal'Cie, Bismarck dwells within the watery refuge of Gran Pulse's Sulyya Springs. Wary and cunning, the whale-like creature vehemently defends its territory, employing various indirect means to eliminate trespassers.

Bismarck's duty appears to be the slow and painstaking reshaping of the land through water erosion. This is likely the reason for its aggressive defense of the waters it inhabits.
Final Fantasy XIII Datalog entry.

Bismarck is a fal'Cie that protects the waters and living creatures in the Sulyya Springs. It is seen as a bubbling discrepancy in the water. If it is examined, a cut scene displays and several platforms with enemies and treasure spheres rise out of the water.

Final Fantasy XIII-2Edit

Bismarck's model exists on the Final Fantasy XIII-2 disc as dummied content, but never appears in the actual game.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

FFXIV Bismark

Artwork of Bismarck.

Bismarck appears in the game's first expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, as the Primal worshiped by the Vanu Vanu tribe, also known as "The White." Bismarck's appearance has been reimagined as something of a "sky-whale" capable of flight with a number of wing-like fins covered in feathers, as well as no visible eyes, and a more ferocious mouth. Accordingly, the boss fight takes place at high-altitudes in "The Limitless Blue".

Final Fantasy XVEdit
