Series appearancesEdit

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)Edit

Dissidia Penelo makes a cameo as a tutor from the in-game manuals, the Character Info, in which she expresses her personal opinions on each character. She does not seem to like all the heroes, namely the Warrior of Light (too tough on himself and others), Firion (intimidating), Cloud Strife (not interesting), Squall Leonhart (should talk to a wall), and Zidane Tribal (too flirtatious).

She does appear to like some Warriors of Chaos, like Garland (suspecting he may secretly be a big softie), Cloud of Darkness (calling her snake-tendrils cute and wishing she had them), Golbez (seeing him as a sweet older brother), and Jecht (commenting him to have the body of a bronzed god). She also expresses her discontent that Gabranth, and not Vaan, is representing Final Fantasy XII in the game.

She refers to Vaan and Kytes by comparing them to Bartz and Onion Knight, respectively, and admits on idolizing Terra of Final Fantasy VI due to being the lone female on the current Warriors of Cosmos, and for her mature personality.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012 Penelo returns in the same role she had in the previous game, as a tutor for the Character Info of old, new, and secret characters introduced in the game. Penelo is more positive in the descriptions of the characters including more complimentary comments regarding heroes she did not like in the first game, namely the Warrior of Light (confident), Firion (straightforward and manly), Cloud Strife ("he's so cool"), Squall Leonhart (masculine), and Zidane Tribal (looks pretty refreshing in his new Knight of Pluto outfit). This could be due to Vaan's inclusion.

Several of the Warriors of Chaos she did not like in the first game, Penelo also has nice things to comment on, specifically Kefka (the more you look at him, the fonder he becomes), and the Emperor, who in Dissidia she said she does not "even want to see that guy's face!", to now saying although he's still the "same old mean guy", she likes his new outfit.

In the daily Mognet mail, Penelo is indirectly mentioned in a mail sent by Sablé. The mail is a survey about her disappearance as a helper girl from an item shop in the Royal City of Rabanastre.

This is Big, Kupo
Hey, {player's name}! Listen, kupo! A helper girl from the item shop in the royal city of Rabanastre has gone missing, kupo! I'm so worried, kupo! I just don't know what to do...

The following mail explains the girl is Penelo, if the player chose the "Give me some details" reply.

We're Moving, Kupo
I heard that the item shop girl was kidnapped by a band of bangaa, kupo. They were apparently mouthing off names like "Bal" and "Thier", whatever that spells out, kupo. Oooh, I just hope she's alright, kupo!

The following mail is replied on the next day. The mail explains about Penelo's work ethics and apparently comparing her to Vaan.

Watching You, Kupo
You understand, right? Right, kupo? The item shop girl at Rabanastre is a hard worker with a sunny disposition. That brat friend of hers should learn from her, kupo. I hope she comes back safely, kupo...

FFRK Penelo
A cheerful young girl who dreams of becoming a dancer. Penelo and Vaan have been friends since childhood, and she does her best to keep him out of trouble as they journey through Ivalice.
—Character profile.

Penelo is a playable character who could be recruited during the Challenge Event Tempered Resolve as the First Time Reward for completing the event's Light Cruiser Shiva stage on the Classic difficulty. She was also available in Consorting with Sky Pirates.


Penelo is a Dancer and her combat role is Healing Magic.

Just as Reno filled a gap in the Final Fantasy VII delegation with his dominance of Black Magic, so does Penelo complete her delegation with mastery of White Magic. In a domain where attackers have so far dominated, her presence delivers a much-needed healer and buffer to replace Ashe, who can now focus on her core Black Magic skills. Penelo was not known as a Dancer in her original game, but became one in its sequel, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. The addition of the skillset gives her the ability to shift the balance of a battle in any way the player sees fit.
