Summon (しょうかん, Shōkan?) is a skillset from Final Fantasy VII the player gains access to after equipping a Summon Materia.

Summons can also be called via Cait Sith's Summon Limit Break in Slots where they are called for free, and the ability name will be the summon's name, with the exception of Fat-Chocobo and Gunge Lance.

Creation and developmentEdit

Tetsuya Nomura created the summons. The creatures themselves don't have official background stories,[1] although they are based on various recurring summons from the series, with some unique ones added, like Kujata.

Nomura did the storyboards for the summon and other effect sequences, and leaving it up to the programmers' to realize them for the game. Since 3D allows the change of perspective in various ways, it was decided to make the summons have flashy "camerawork."[2]

Ifrit in SSB4

The Final Fantasy VII interpretations of many of the series's summons appear as stage hazards in the Midgar stage. If a player touches a Summon Materia floating around the stage, it will trigger the corresponding summon.

  • Ifrit: Attacks with fire magic, tilting the stage to the side.
  • Ramuh: Electrifies the three floating platforms.
  • Odin: Splits the stage with its sword. The slash is a one-hit KO, and the separated stage pieces can be grabbed like normal ledges. When the stage rejoins, any character hanging on the ledge is KOed.
  • Leviathan: Floods the arena, making the main platform surf across a huge body of water.
  • Bahamut ZERO: Attacks with a devastating flare, which destroys the city in the background and creates a damaging pillar of light on the stage.
