Ramuh amano
An ancient, ageless mage bearing the dazzling power of lightning.
Dissidia Final Fantasy Summon Compendium.

Ramuh (ラムウ, Ramū?), also known as Indra, is a recurring character and summoned creature in the Final Fantasy series. He is affiliated with thunder and lightning, and is represented as an old man carrying a staff. His signature attack is called Judgment Bolt.

ProfileEdit

As most recurring summons have, Ramuh has maintained the same basic appearance across the series with minor variations. Ramuh typically appears as an old man with a large beard and mustache, balding and wearing flowing robes. The exact design of Ramuh's robes has varied considerably from game to game. He carries with him a staff that he uses to call down bolts of lightning on enemies, including his signature Judgement Bolt.

Ramuh is one of the few summons to play a major role in the storyline of a game. In Final Fantasy VI, Ramuh calls Terra Branford to him when she loses control of her magical powers and helps calm her while she regains her senses. He relates to the party the general details of the War of the Magi and what has led the espers to flee the human world, before sacrificing his life to become magicite and aid them in battle.

In Final Fantasy IX, Ramuh appears to Princess Garnet and gives her a trial requiring the party to find the parts of a story and relate them to Ramuh, before Ramuh again gives himself up to become Garnet's eidolon.

Ramuh, as an esper, plays a major role in Final Fantasy VI as Terra's guardian while she is coming to her senses in Zozo. He sends the party to Vector to rescue his friends, including Terra's father, Maduin. Afterwards he turns himself into magicite.

Mog mentions that Ramuh has appeared to him in dreams and has told him to fight alongside the party; in the Japanese and GBA versions Mog also says that it was Ramuh, through these dreams, who taught him how to speak. Dissidia Final Fantasy makes mention of this in its Summon files on Ramuh.

See the Summon sequence here.
FFIX Ramuh

Ramuh is an eidolon, and plays a role in the story. After Zidane Tribal, Vivi Ornitier, and Princess Garnet flee Alexandria, they wind up in the Pinnacle Rocks. Ramuh agrees to help Garnet if she can pass his test of completing a story and rewards her with a Peridot, which can be used to summon his Judgement Bolt in battle. Ramuh reveals to Zidane and Vivi that whatever ending Garnet chose for the story, he would lend her his power; the story was simply to test her character. It is possible to leave Pinnacle Rocks without completing this quest, but the player can still obtain more Peridots later to teach Garnet Ramuh's summon.

Ramuh's summon attack is Judgement Bolt that deals lightning damage to all opponents. The magic power for Ramuh's summon under normal circumstances is 31. When the full animation for the summon plays, the power is equal to 32 plus the amount of Peridots in the party's inventory. It costs 22 MP to summon.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Ramuh (FFXI)

Ramuh appears in Final Fantasy XI as one of the six celestial avatars. He represents the lightning element. The job class Summoner can unlock the "spell" Ramuh upon completion of the quest Trial by Lightning. Alternatively, a brave low-level summoner may go on the quest Trial Size Trial by Lightning and defeat Ramuh in a battle alone rather than in a group. He retains his trademark maneuver Judgement Bolt and has several other offensive abilities as well as two party enchantments.

Olduum is the name given to Ramuh's staff. His staff, so named, is also identified with an ancient culture on the same continent as Aht Urhgan. Not much is known of this ancient civilization, aside from the fact they worshiped Ramuh and developed electronic technologies.

More about him prior his worship in said civilization is revealed: He was a sage from a nation situated on the Buburimu Peninsula. His great learning allowed the country to prosper and develop advanced technology. However, one day, one of Ramuh's machines predicted an earthquake. His kinsmen were unwilling to believe the possibility of a tragedy after so much prosperity, so they didn't take any precautions. The earthquake struck, and the people, angry at their own foolishness, began to look for a scapegoat. Suspicions naturally fell on Ramuh, who decided to exile himself to an uninhabited island after a young boy, who had lost his parents in the earthquake, threw stones at him. The nation neglected its technology, out of spite for Ramuh.

Thus, when beastmen attacked them, several years later, they couldn't defend themselves. The same boy who had thrown stones at him — now grown into a man — was sent to ask Ramuh for help, and the sage accepted. He used the Staff of Olduum to wipe out the beastmen with a thunderstorm, but victory had a bitter taste. Fearful of this new power, Ramuh's kinsmen soon forced him into exile again.

This time, he didn't return. The nation collapsed, but Altana rewarded Ramuh's selflessness by taking his soul to the heavens and transforming him into the Celestial Avatar of Lightning. Olduum is the name of the brightest, purple-colored star of the Ramuh constellation. It's also the name of an ancient civilization which used to exist in the Aht Uhrgan region. It's possible that Ramuh learned how to control lightning from them on one of his travels.

Ramuh is also the name of a server.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Ramuh is said to have been loosely based on an epic Hindu poem, written by Valmiki, called Ramayana. The protagonist of the story is called Raama (also spelled Rama), said to have been the incarnation of the Hindu god, Vishnu. It could be suspected the name Ramuh is an Amalgam of Raama and Vishnu, though this is not confirmed.

In the Final Fantasy series, Ramuh is an old, bearded sage with a staff who casts thunder magic. Rumors say he is based on the king Ra-mu of a supposedly sunken continent, Mu. His previous name, Indra, is the name of the king of the Devas in Hindu mythology, the god of rain, lightning, and storms.
