Battle Edit

Leviathan starts the battle with Tsunami and uses it periodically with Aqua Breath and El Niño. He has a powerful physical attack and counterattacks with Entangle, which inflicts Slow. Leviathan's Water attacks hit the entire party and cannot be blocked.

Upon his defeat, the party will receive the Leviathan magicite.

The battle against Leviathan is the last chance for Mog to obtain the Water Harmony Dance if the player did not learn it in the World of Balance. Also, it's a chance for Strago to learn Tsunami.

Strategy Edit

By equipping a piece of the Imp equipment on all party members, the party can absorb Leviathan's Water attacks and only his normal attack will inflict damage. Casting powerful spells like Flare and Ultima are enough to finish him.

Etymology Edit

Leviathan (Biblical Hebrew לִוְיָתָן or לווייתן Liwyāthān) is a violent sea creature that is referred to in the Hebrew Bible as well as the Talmud and some other ancient Jewish texts. During the golden age of seafaring, the term Leviathan became synonymous with any large sea creature, sometimes describing whales. Bible scholars interpreted Leviathan to be either a demonic sea creature and an enemy of God.

The Talmud and other ancient Jewish sources refer to Leviathan more specifically as a sea serpent, sometimes with multiple heads capable of breathing fire, that was made on the fifth day of Creation. It is said that during the end of days, God will make tents, or sukkah, out of the skin of Leviathan for the righteous to live in. Some have speculated that Leviathan was based on a real animal, the most popular theory being the Kronosaurus and the Nile crocodile.

Leviathan is also one of the seven princes of Hell associated with the deadly sin Envy and Hell's gatekeeper in Christian demonology.

Being mentioned in the Final Fantasy series as the King of the Seas, its incarnation also appears to derive from the legends of the Shinto god Ryūjin or Owatatsumi, said to be the dragon god that reigns over the tides and the seas. This is further reinforced by the parallels of the Leviathan faith of Wutai in Final Fantasy VII, as Shinto also sees the worship of water dragon kami in Japan.

In some cultures it is believed Leviathan lives at the bottom of Mariana Trench.
