Lunar Bahamut is an optional boss in the Game Boy Advance and Playstation Portable ports of Final Fantasy IV. It is fought during Kain Highwind's Lunar Trial at the Lunar Ruins. When beaten, the player obtains the Dragoon Gloves, which boost Kain's stats and changes his Jump command to Double Jump, the Abel's Lance, and the Grimoire LB, which, if used as an item, summons Lunar Bahamut to deal 9,999 damage to all enemies. Using up the Grimoire unlocks the trial door again. Defeating Lunar Bahamut a second time nets the player a Megalixir.

BattleEdit

This is a hard battle, as it must be fought with Kain alone. When the battle starts Dark Kain is fought, but as with the Dark Cecil encounter simply defend for a few turns and Dark Kain will turn into Lunar Bahamut. Lunar Bahamut uses Megaflare with a three-count countdown.

StrategyEdit

Before entering the trial door it is recommended to have some Lunar Curtains or Light Curtains and some Hermes Sandals (none are required, however they make the battle a lot easier).

Kain should use a Lunar or Light Curtain to avert the Megaflare attack. Using a Hermes Shoes can be an advantage to avoid the attack and be able to use Jump twice before getting damaged. Any damage should be healed with a Hi-Potion or an Elixir.

If the player has no Curtains or Sandals, one may have to reset the battle several times before one gets the "feel" of timing the Jumps properly (which is ultimately what the battle depends on). The best time to do so without using Sandals would be right after the count of two. Any earlier or later merits a Megaflare.

When Curtains aren't available, another strategy is to buy 30 Elixirs.

EtymologyEdit

Luna means "moon" in Latin, Italian, Romanian, Russian, and Spanish.

Bahamut (Arabic بهموت Bahamūt) originated as an enormous whale in ancient pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. Upon Bahamut's back stands a bull with four thousand eyes, ears, noses, mouths, tongues and feet called Kujuta (also spelled "Kuyutha"). Between each of these is a distance of a 500-year journey. On the back of Kujuta is a mountain of ruby. Atop this mountain is an angel who carries six hells, earth, and seven heavens on its shoulders.

Another version of the Arabic story is that Bahamut is indeed a dragon and he stands on a whale called Liwash.

In modern times, the game Dungeons & Dragons is responsible for re-imagining Bahamut as the king of dragons, a benevolent Platinum Dragon; the opposite of the malevolent Tiamat, the five-headed Chromatic Queen of Dragons.
