The Flan is an amorph/flan-type enemy in the game Final Fantasy XII. Four Flans appear as a boss in the Garamsythe Waterway, and more Flans can be found in the Barheim Passage. Flans are weak against Fire, so Fire-based spells and attacks are most effective. They have a rare Caramel to be stolen.

Being an amorph, coated in slime, its eyes and mouth having an evil aspect. They know no distinction of sex, instead absorbing prey until enough bulk has been gleaned, whereupon they divide their mass, creating offspring in this manner. Recent research has shown striking similarities in the magickal ordering of these creatures with the ordering seen in naturally occurring Mist, leading some to believe that their generation is tied to Mist at a fundamental level.

The Iron Stomach, a guild of tasters known for its roster of legendary chefs, has announced a new dessert! Called 'flan' after the creature of the same name, and fashioned much like its namesake, its popularity is rising as a hunter's treat. In an astonishing example of creature influencing dessert influencing creature, it has become common practice to refer to the darkened region near the flan's head as 'caramel', a truer sign of the dessert's popularity than any of its creators could ever have hoped for.
Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.
