Maduin, also known as Madeen (マディン, Madin?) is a recurring summon in the Final Fantasy series. Maduin has appeared as both a man and a woman, and takes the form of a bestial, usually leonid, human that is a Holy-elemental summon.


Final Fantasy VIEdit

Main article: Maduin (Final Fantasy VI)

In its first initial appearance, Maduin is an esper, and the guardian of the Esper World.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
FFIX Madeen

Madeen is disguised as a moogle named Mog, who lived and grew up with Eiko Carol in Madain Sari. When Zorn and Thorn kidnap Eiko and take her to Mount Gulug, Mog comes out of Eiko's pocket and goes into Trance, revealing herself as the eidolon Madeen.

Madeen urges Eiko to use her special ability, Terra Homing, which eliminates Zorn and Thorn. Afterward, Madeen reminds Eiko she will always be with her before disappearing entirely. Madeen is never referred to as a male eidolon, even after abandoning its female form, so this is the only game in which it is assumed to be female.

Eiko can learn to summon Madeen for 120 AP from the Ribbon add-on, which is obtained as part of the story when Madeen is first revealed to Eiko. Madeen's summon attack is Terra Homing (テラホーミング, Tera Hōmingu?) that deals Holy-elemental damage. Madeen's spell power increases with Eiko's level (see Summon (Final Fantasy IX)#Mechanics for damage formulae), and costs 54 MP to summon.

Final Fantasy Tactics AdvanceEdit


Madeen can be learned from the Cheer Staff by the Summoner class. It uses the most MP of all the summons in the game, taking 36 MP and needing 300 AP to master. This summon deals Holy-elemental damage to all targeted enemies, and has a Magic Power of 52. It is stealable through the ability Steal: Ability, and is also susceptible to Return Magic and Absorb MP.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

Maduin is a Holy-elemental esper, and similar to its Final Fantasy Tactics Advance appearance, deals Holy damage to all units within a large area, and is learned by the Summoner from using the Cheer Staff. It requires 350 AP to master and 24 MP to cast.

Crystal DefendersEdit

Main article: Madeen (Crystal Defenders)

Madeen appears in this game not as a summon, but a boss.

Dissidia Final FantasyEdit

Maduin does not appear in person, but two items make reference to it. Terra's Level 100 exclusive weapon is called "Maduin's Horn" after the esper in Final Fantasy VI. The "Maduin's Fang" accessory explicitly makes reference to Madeen's transformation in Final Fantasy IX.

While Maduin and Madeen have always been the same creature in the Japanese releases, the description of Maduin's Fang refers to the Final Fantasy IX Madeen as Maduin, marking the first and only time the two creatures have been addressed as the same being in the English release.
