V

Ramuh is an optional boss in Final Fantasy V. The player must fight it to obtain him as a summon, but the player must have the summon Ifrit before Ramuh will join. Ramuh can be found as a random enemy in the forest near Istory, or in the Interdimensional Rift if not obtained. Ramuh can also be fought as transformation of Metamorph, this time without elemental modifiers or status immunities.

At the end of the battle Ramuh will have a dialogue session with Ifrit who asks Ramuh to join the party. Ramuh replies that he and Ifrit have never been enemies and ends the battle. The player obtains the spell in the inventory as an item, and needs to use it for it to be listed in summon section.

Battle Edit

As a Lightning-elemental enemy, Ramuh uses Electric Shock, which damages a target, and Lightning, which is more damaging and attacks all targets. He also uses Thundara, a Black Magic spell. Other magic spells include Osmose, which drains a target's MP, the status Mini, and the Blue Magic spell Flash that Blinds all party members.

Strategy Edit

A good strategy is to use the Blue Magic spell Death Claw, then strike to finish Ramuh off. Should one not have Death Claw, it is also possible to use a Beastmaster to Catch a Corbett from the ocean around Istory and release it to cast Tail Screw, which has a similar effect.

Etymology Edit

Ramuh could be based on Lahmu, who is often portrayed as a bearded man with a red sash and four to six curls on his head. Ramuh could also be loosely based on an epic Hindu poem, written by Valmiki, called Ramayana. Its protagonist is Raama (also spelled Rama), said to have been the incarnation of the Hindu god, Vishnu. The name Ramuh could be an amalgam of Raama and Vishnu.

In the Final Fantasy series, Ramuh is an old, bearded sage with a staff who casts thunder magic. He could be based on the king Ra-mu of a supposedly sunken continent, Mu. The element of lightning could come from the Hebrew word רעם (rá'am), meaning thunder, or thunderclap. His previous name, Indra, is the name of the king of the Devas in Hindu mythology, the god of rain, lightning, and storms.
