- “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 Sabin Suplexing the Phantom Train in Final Fantasy VI. Seeking refuge from the Gestahlian Empire after fleeing Doma Castle, Sabin, Cyan, and potentially Shadow, board the train to look for other survivors of the castle's fall, but discover it is a train that carries the spirits of the dead to the afterlife. They fight their way to the engine to halt the train, but discover the locomotive itself is alive and it attacks them, the battle using a unique background to indicate the party is fleeing down the tracks from the pursuing train as they fight. When then Phantom Train is defeated, it agrees to let the party go and does so at its next stop when it picks up the spirits of the Doma victims.
Sabin is able to use the Blitz Meteor Strike, called Suplex in the Super NES and PSX releases, on the Phantom Train. Most bosses in the game are flagged as being immune to Meteor Strike/Suplex, but the Phantom Train is not. The ability of Sabin to use the attack on the Phantom Train was popularized due in large part to this video, where the Phantom Train inflicts Berserk on Sabin after the player enters the Suplex command; with Berserk amplifying his attack power, Sabin performs Suplex and deals 3,250 damage to the Phantom Train, destroying it in one attack. The scene is infamous in the series and has inspired a meme and associated fanart over Sabin's physical prowess in being able to Suplex an entire train.
