- “A mysterious little creature, he makes himself useful by transforming into a weapon for Serah. No one knows much about this strange animal who calls himself her guardian. People were led to believe that moogles don't exist, and those who meet him for the first time assume he is merely a stuffed animal. Although shy at first, once he opens up, he is quite the chatterbox, teaching Serah and Noel all about the world and its history.”

Mog (モーグリ, Mōguri?) is a supporting character in Final Fantasy XIII-2 accompanying Serah Farron and Noel Kreiss on their journey through time, teaching them about the game's mechanics, and acting as Serah's weapon in battle. In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Mog leads the Moogle Village in the Wildlands of Nova Chrysalia.
Although officially called "Mog" some official material calls him The Moogle or just Moogle, for example in the EU wallpaper. In the Japanese version of Final Fantasy XIII-2, Mog is referred to as "Moogle" and rarely called "Mog". His entry in the Datalog of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII suggests his real name is not Mog and that he doesn't know his real name.
Mog originates from the Ocean of Time, a place abundant with moogles. While playing hide-and-seek with his friends Mog was sucked into a paradox, losing his memories of his home, friends, and family. Mog drifted into the Void Beyond and during his travel encountered a chocobo chick and many other various creatures in many humorous encounters, including those with five flan, a Centaurion Blade, an Imp and his Ahriman friend, and the Proto fal'Cie Adam.
In Final Fantasy XIII-2, Mog can not only transform into Serah's weapon, but can execute the Mog Clock pre-battle system and detect hidden treasures on the field with Moogle Hunt. Mog can be thrown by Noel or Serah toward out-of-reach areas through the Moogle Throw command. (more...)
Screenshot of Utter Chaos from Dissidia Final Fantasy. Utter Chaos is the ultimate attack of Chaos, used only in the third part of the three-stage battle with him. Chaos leaps off the Edge of Madness arena and grows to monstrous size, then lifts one of the monoliths around the around revealing them to be massive swords. He performs a series of four attacks against the player, sending fire and explosions over the arena. The final blow of the attack is Brink of Delusion. Chaos summons three more swords to him and hurls them into the sides of the arena. Circles of energy appear on the arena floor and explode, dealing HP damage if the player is in their radius. As Chaos watches the explosion, the screen brightens to white and then fades back in to reveal Chaos returned to his throne, and he stands to resume the battle as the camera pans out. If the player was struck by the explosions, they fall to the ground in front of Chaos as he stands.
The animation of Brink of Delusion is a reference to the Chaos of Ivalice, who creates his signature Tornado attack in Final Fantasy XII by stabbing four swords into crests of energy. The name of the attack is a synonym for "Final Fantasy".
