Galuf is a playable character who can be recruited as the First Time Reward for completing Desert of Shifting Sands on Classic difficulty in the FF V realm of the core dungeons.

As a typical Monk, Galuf boasts high HP, Attack, Defense, and Speed stats, while his Magic, Resistance, and Mind stats are average and remain balanced as he develops. As such, his best use is as an attack unit. What he doesn't pound into a pulp with his fists will almost certainly be smashed with a hammer or carved with a dagger. Galuf is the only Monk who can wield three weapon types, but the hammer group is somewhat rare in typical gameplay.

- No. 183: "An old warrior from another world who appears in the tales of the Crystals. He first met Bartz and his allies in the aftermath of a meteorite strike. At that time, he had no memory of his identity, save his own name and his duty to protect the Crystals. As he journeys with the others, though, he recalls more and more of his past life. He remembers that he comes from a different world than the one Bartz and the others live in. And there, he had been one of the four Warriors of Dawn, who sealed the warlock Exdeath in the past after a desperate struggle."
- No. 184: "An old warrior from another world who appears in the tales of the Crystals. He was the king of Bal in the Second World, and one of the Warriors of Dawn who formerly sealed away Exdeath. Unable to defeat Exdeath in a contest of strength, the Warriors had little choice but to seal him in the First World. Galuf has been haunted ever since by the fear that he left another world infected with the seeds of destruction. His love for peace and for his comrades is beyond compare, and inspires him to take on Exdeath in one-on-one combat, in order to save Bartz and the other Warriors of Light in the Great Forest of Moore."
