Final Fantasy VI PlayStation esper section

Raiden (ライディーン, Raidīn?) is a summon in various games in the series. As his name implies, he is usually associated with lightning.


Final Fantasy VIEdit

FFVI Shin-Zantetsuken

Raiden is summoned into battle.

Raiden is an esper obtained by bringing the Odin magicite to the statue of the Queen in the Ancient Castle basement. The Queen will drop a tear that will hit Odin, who will transform into Raiden. Raiden's summon, Shin-Zantetsuken (True Edge in the original version), inflicts Death to all opponents. Its Hit Rate is 140, works against the undead and will stall an enemy's Final Attack one turn but it will fail on targets immune to Death. It costs 80 MP to summon, and teaches Quick at a rate of x1.

Raiden's Level Up bonus increases Strength by 2. Because Odin is the only esper in the original game to give a Level Up bonus to Speed, many players kept him rather than transforming him into Raiden. The Advance and mobile versions adds new espers, making Odin no longer the only esper with a Speed bonus.
