StoryEdit

Originally from Archylte Steppe in another point in time, the miniflan were sucked up by Faeryl and ended up at the Sunleth Waterscape in 300 AF. Though Serah and Noel destroyed Faeryl to negate the paradox by reducing their numbers, the miniflan remained in that time and flourished a century later.

In a fragment entry it is elaborated how the miniflan formed the "miniflan musketeers", a gang of five kinds of flan who acquired self-awareness. The group consists of "cool Blue", "emo Black", "lady Pink", "mischievous Yellow", and their "hot-blooded leader Red".

StatsEdit

BattleEdit

Although they have little HP, they can heal themselves if they take damage. It is recommended to focus on and take down one Miniflan at a time.

Paradigm PackEdit

Powerchain at level 9 may be useful for infusion. Blindside takes a lot of materials and acquires some less desirable passive abilities on the way to level 50, and there are eight non-DLC monsters that have it at level 20 or below, including Dragoon at level 2.

Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.

TriviaEdit

FFXIII2 Adornment - Miniflan Figurine
  • Although Miniflan come from the Archylte Steppe, they are actually sparse there.
  • "The Mini Flan Figurine" is an adornment monsters can be decorated with.
  • The "Miniflan Fragment" found after defeating the five Miniflan at Sunleth Waterscape in 400 AF describes the "Miniflan Musketeers", a mischievous group of five sentient miniflan. These mutated miniflan are a reference to the Japanese series, Super Sentai, and its American adaptation, Power Rangers.
