This great white whale rules the seas. Its foamy blast taps the power of water.
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.
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.
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.
Bismarck's model exists on the Final Fantasy XIII-2 disc as dummied content, but never appears in the actual game.
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".
Bismarck is a Water-elemental esper in Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade. From time to time, players may encounter Bismarck in battle. Defeating Bismarck will grant players the Bismarck I summon stone, which allows Bismarck to be summoned into battle. When summoned, Bismarck uses the skill, Breach Blast.

In the anime Final Fantasy: Unlimited, Bismarck makes an appearance as a summon. The Soil Charge Triad (Soil is like the colored bullet of a Magun, used to summon creatures) needed to summon Bismarck is:
- The one who tears apart boulders with it's teeth, Shark Gray!
- The one who envelopes all thirst, Water Blue!
- The one who feeds on emptiness, Crusher White!
Followed by saying: "Cry! Summoned Creature! Bismarck!"
In the English audio version, the Soil Charge Triad was changed to:
- Grinding and devouring rocks, Shark Gray!
- The soil that drinks thirst, Water Blue!
- That which can even feed on empty space, Crusher White!
Followed by saying: "Roar! I summon you! Bismarck!"
