Legend holds that, in a time long forgotten, mooglekind abided in the heavens as loyal servants of the gods. However, due to a terrible war that erupted, the moogle king decided to lead his subjects to the realm of mortals in secret, to have a life of peace.
Soon, the moogles discovered that the distance to the land below was too great for their wings, and it was decided that the journey would be made by rope, the longest that has ever been woven. Thus, the king grasped onto one end of this lifeline as his subjects, one after the next, half clambered, half slid their way to the Promised Land, except for Good King Moggle Mog XII, who had not the means to lower himself.
Mourning their lost king and touched by his sacrifice, the moogles have since abstained from naming a successor to the crown, and ultimately were able to call him back to Eorzea using a mysterious summoning ritual.

Good King Moggle Mog XII is fought as a boss. During battle, he is aided by a zealous band of moogle warriors.

Good King Moggle Mog XII's eponymous theme plays during the battle against him. It is a remix of the traditional Moogle Theme, albeit more spooky in nature. It bears a strong resemblance to "This Is Halloween", the opening theme to The Nightmare Before Christmas, written by Danny Elfman.
Non-Final Fantasy AppearancesEdit
Good King Moggle Mog XII appears as a card on the mobile card game Guardian Cross.
- While most moogles in the franchise have names derived from moogle or mog (i.e. Montblanc, Mogsy, Moguel) with the exceptions of Stiltzkin and Artemicion, the moogles fought in the Good King Moggle Mog XII battle have names derived from "Kupo", the moogle's trademark noise (i.e. Pukna Pako, Kupli Kipp, Kupdi Koop).
- The lyrics to the song in Phase 2 (Post-Memento-Moogle) describe the moogles in the fight (including the king) and their personalities/specialties. Players assume the moogles are either introducing each other or themselves, but nothing in the lyrics confirms this. It is possible the lyrics were written as a mnemonic device for players.
