Penanggalan is a mark in Final Fantasy XIII. It is fought in Taejin's Tower as Mission 26, in order to enable the Menhirrim to open the way for the party to reach Oerba.


Mission 26: So Shrill, the CryEdit

  • Class: B
  • Stone Location: Taejin's Tower - Fifth Tier
  • Mark Location: Taejin's Tower - Sixth Tier

Defiant soul, hear my plea and we shall bring light to your dark path.
Know that a penanggalan holds my power thrall within this spire. Slay it and I shall once more be free.
If you can but restore the strength of my two brethren and I, here on the upper tiers, the way will be opened unto you.


A good starting paradigm is Commando, Medic, and Synergist to buff and heal while the Commando gets rid of the Chonchons. After getting rid of the Chonchons, the party can switch to Relentless Assault or other fully offensive Paradigm like Com/Com/Com or Com/Rav/Rav. If needed use a Fortisol and Aegisol.

Penanggalan, also known as Hantu Penanggal, is a variation of the vampire myth that originated from the Malay Peninsula. Hantu Penanggal appear as beautiful women in the day, but come nighttime they detach their heads and bring their stomach and entrails along as they fly through the sky in search of newborns and mothers-in-labor to feed on their blood. "Penanggalan" comes from the Malay root word tanggal, meaning "detach." There is also a Filipino mythical creature called Manananggal (literally "Detacher").
