Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)Edit


Dissidia Squall

Squall appears as a Warrior of Cosmos representing Final Fantasy VIII, against Ultimecia.

To claim his crystal, Squall travels alone, rejecting Zidane and Bartz's offer to join up. Ultimecia manipulates Squall's chosen path and declares him an apathetic warrior who believes in none but himself. Squall comes to believe in the support of his friends, even if they do not fight alongside him, giving him the strength to fight towards Ultimecia on his own and ultimately defeat her.

In his alternate outfit, he wears his SeeD uniform.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012 Squall returns as a Warrior of Cosmos. During the 12th cycle he, along with Bartz and Zidane, meet up with Kuja when he promises to lead them to Chaos, but the other Warriors of Chaos catch Kuja. Kuja defeats the three and allows them to escape.

Squall also interacts with Laguna in flashbacks seen in the Reports, where he is put off by Laguna's friendly and carefree nature, and Laguna encourages Squall to enjoy the now and not worry about the future. The two remain ignorant of their connection to each other in their original world.

Squall's second alternate outfit is based on his artwork by Yoshitaka Amano, removing his jacket and giving him a sleeveless black shirt. As a bonus fourth outfit he appears as "Leon" from the Kingdom Hearts series, with longer hair and a jacket with shorter sleeves and no fur ruffle. This outfit was obtained in Japan by purchasing the April 2011 issue of V-Jump magazine, or in Europe by buying the Legacy Edition.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NTEdit

Squall's appearance in-game.

Squall is a playable character, as a representative of Final Fantasy VIII. He is classed as a Speed-type character with extremely high attack speed, enabling him to rushdown his opponents with fast and hard hitting combos.

Theatrhythm Final FantasyEdit


Theatrhythm Squall
A talented SeeD and a member of the select organization which was formed for the purpose of subjugating sorceresses. While carrying out his duty, Squall is afflicted by mysterious dreams which show him a story from the past and the life of a warm and candid man who seems so like and yet unlike himself. These dreams of the past, which seem at first glance to be without significance, soon are revealed to have intimate ties to the tale of Squall's present.
—Online description

Squall appears as a default playable character, and is based on his appearance in Dissidia Final Fantasy. His Final Fantasy VIII incarnation is also part of the background movie in the Event Music Sequence, "Waltz for the Moon", dancing with Rinoa.

Squall learns all of his abilities at level 80, and they primarily focus on offense, defence and boosting his strength. Along with Cloud, he is essential in tackling the many bosses encountered in Dark Notes, thanks to his great strength and limit break.

His Limit, Lion Heart, deals damage to boss-type enemies in direct proportion to Strength, Agility and Luck.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain CallEdit


The lonely wielder of the gunblade, Squall appears far too grim for his 17 years. The trials that fate heaps on him only serve to increase his inner turmoil and self-doubt, but a lone woman may thaw his icy heart...

Squall returns as a default playable character. If the player did not select him among their party of four, he can later be unlocked by collecting Green Crystal Shards.

He is now a defense-oriented character. His Limit, Lion Heart, functions the same as before, dealing damage in proportion to his Strength, Agility, and Luck.

Final Fantasy All the BravestEdit


Squall Lionheart ATB
This mercenary of Balamb Garden's SeeD loses his usual cool when playing cards.

Squall is an exclusive character only available from the Premium Character Shop as a random downloadable content, he uses the Blasting Zone ability during battle.

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit


FFRK Squall
A natural born warrior who wields a gunblade on the field of battle. Stubborn to a fault, Squall can come off as brusque and standoffish, but there's no doubting his skill.

Squall appears as an event-recruitable character. He could be unlocked in the Balamb Garden, the SeeDs of Conflict Challenge Event in the Master Room on Classic as the First Time Reward; or obtained by completing the Normal trial in the fifth phase of Forbidden Treasure. He could further be recruited via Gunblade of the Sorceress, Broken Chains, and Rains of Ruin.


Squall is a SeeD whose combat role is as a Physical/Magic Hybrid.

Squall's stats are weighted toward a typical Knight, having above-average HP and Attack; his other stats are low-to-average across the board: Defense and Resistance need to be offset with armor. He has the potential to be a power unit with his Soul Break skills, which are complemented by a broad skillset that positions him as a low-level Red Mage as well as a competent Spellblade.

Squall can use Black Magic abilities up to rarity rank 2, White Magic abilities up to rarity rank 2, Spellblade abilities up to rarity rank 4, Combat abilities up to rarity rank 5, Celerity abilities up to rarity rank 3.

His initial Soul Break is Blade Flurry, which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals three successive attacks to random targets, each hit equal to 60% damage potency of a conventional attack, totaling to 180% damage potency. The sword Revolver (VIII) allows Squall to use Rough Divide which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment unleashes a powerful attack on one target which deals damage equal to 480% damage potency of a conventional attack. The sword Shear Trigger (VIII) allows Squall to use Fated Circle which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals three random single target attacks, followed by one attack on all targets, each hit equal to 85% damage potency of a conventional attack, totaling to 205% damage potency with an additional 85% damage potency hit which hits all enemies. The sword Cutting Trigger (VIII) allows Squall to use Blasting Zone which at the cost of one Soul Gauge segment deals four consecutive physical attacks to one target, and upon mastery raises Squall's Attack by 10 points.

After Squall's level cap is increased he automatically gains the Record Materia, Composure, which when equipped allows the user to deal more damage when using Attack but at the cost of filling the Soul Gauge at a slower pace. His second Record Materia, Gunblade, sometimes increases the damage of attacks, mimicking the trigger effect from Final Fantasy 8, while his third Record Materia, Lionheart, increases how much soul gauge is filled from taking damage.


Squall can equip the following weapon types: daggers and swords. The swords Revolver (VIII), Shear Trigger (VIII), and Cutting Trigger (VIII) allow Squall to use Rough Divide, Fated Circle, and Blasting Zone, respectively.

He can equip the following armor types: hats, helms, light armor, heavy armor and bracers.

He can equip accessories.

Who's WhoEdit

CV: Doug Erholtz / Hideo Ishikawa
Age in Grymoire: 17
Notes: Mercenary / Follows orders / SeeD / Gunblade / Handily saves Lann and Reynn from certain death
SeeD is a group of elite mercenaries whose current primary focus is overthrowing the Bahamutian Federation. Its ranks include such notable figures as Squall and Quistis.
King Edgar of Figaro hired SeeD to help free his castle from the Federation's chain. SeeD's support was invaluable in this operation, and they provided crucial support to the forcibly drafted heroes of the day, Lann and Reynn.
The League of S
Cloud and Shelke work for Shinra, and Squall and Quistis work for SeeD. When these two powerful groups joined forces against the Bahamutian Federation, they became a powerful alliance known as the League of S--which, as you've figured out by now, comes from the first letter of their names.
The League's Troubled History
Shinra and SeeD--their alliance poses a formidable threat to the Bahamutian Federation.
However, their cause saw a major setback when a mysterious incident at Shinra's former HQ in Nibelheim resulted in the disappearance of its researchers and top brass. After the incident, SeeD stepped in and assumed command of Shinra's mercenary group, known as SOLDIER. That is why Cloud and Shelke now report to Quistis.
Seed's Headquarters
The floating city of Balamb Garden serves as SeeD's airborne base of operations. However, until Eiko took a closer look, no one had ever suspected the Garden was actually a colossal eidolon.
Occasionally, alien technology is discovered in Grymoire: strange artifacts from places and eras unknown. SeeD has worked tirelessly to find this technology and exploit it in their fight against the Federation. The airships they used to discover Balamb Garden are a perfect example.
The Garden itself also proved to be a gold mine of useful tech: drawing, junctioning, and weapons like the gunblade. With the support of Shinra's brilliant researchers, these discoveries were modernized and put into practice.
Leadership Material
Squall has always been a man of few words--a lone wolf. However, with so few fighters of his caliber to choose from, SeeD has had to keep Squall on the front lines, where his comrades expect him to get them through the danger. As a result, he's more of a leader than he knows.
In case you're wondering, Seifer doesn't exist here in Grymoire, so someone else gave Squall that scar on his face. Rumor has it that when he started training with Cloud and Lightning, he went home every day covered with scrapes and bruises. You don't think that one of them...?
This may surprise you, but Squall is the youngest core member of the League of S. (Yep, even younger than Shelke!) His poise and experience makes him seem older than he actually is.
First World of Origin

Spoilers end here.

Mobius Final FantasyEdit

Mobius Squall's Dissidia attire appears as a costume for Wol.

Chocobo RacingEdit


Chocobo Squall

Squall is a secret character using a version of the car he drove when attacking Edea in Final Fantasy VIII, the Tempest. To obtain him the player must beat the story mode twice, then beat Squall himself in a challenger race set in a Final Fantasy VIII themed circuit. When executing an element after he took it during the race, Squall's grunt is the slash sound of his gunblade from Final Fantasy VIII.

Final Fantasy Trading Card GameEdit

TCG Squall appears represented by many cards, all of which are of the Ice element, two of them being promotional cards.

Triple TriadEdit

Squall appears as an opponent and on Triple Triad cards in the version available via the Final Fantasy Portal App. They have different values than his card in Final Fantasy VIII. On Easy he uses rules All Open and Same. On Normal and Hard he uses Plus and Swap. On Hard the rare five star cards of himself and Rinoa can be won from him, among other cards. He uses the trading rule One.

Guest appearancesEdit

Kingdom HeartsEdit


In the Kingdom Hearts series Squall is referred to as Leon, as he changed his name after failing to save Hollow Bastion from the Heartless. At 25 years old, he is several years older than in Final Fantasy VIII to match the ages of the other Final Fantasy characters he appears alongside with. Along with Yuffie, Aerith and Cid, Leon came from Hollow Bastion and fled to Traverse Town when Maleficent took over the castle. Leon helps Sora with advice and information in the first game, and in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories teaches the player many basic concepts for the card-based battle system. In the original game, a special gummi ship blueprint called Leon can be obtained by defeating 4000 Heartless and talking to Geppetto.

In Kingdom Hearts II, Leon leads the Hollow Bastion Restoration Committee, and works towards restoring the ruins of Hollow Bastion to the home he and the others once knew. Despite his rival, Seifer, also appearing in the game, the two never interact or even exist in the same world, although both have their trademark scars. In the ending Leon receives a letter, its contents unknown, and a pair of pink wings floats from it indicating it may be from Rinoa.

In both Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II, Leon is a boss in several Coliseum cups, and shoots fireballs at Sora when not close enough to strike him with the gunblade.

After beating the Leon/Cloud tag-team in the Hades cup in Kingdom Hearts, the player receives the Lionheart Keyblade. In Kingdom Hearts II, Leon gives the player the Sleeping Lion outside of Ansem's computer room before they fight the MCP. Both Keyblades are modeled after the Revolver version of the gunblade.

Leon makes an appearance in Kingdom Hearts χ [chi] as one of the obtainable character cards. He appears in the remake, Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], on several medals.

Itadaki StreetEdit


Squall is a playable character in this special edition of the Monopoly-like video game available in Japan. He is set to appear in Itadaki Street: Dragon Quest & Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary.
