Takka is a non-player character in Final Fantasy XV. He works as operator, cook and hunt tipster at Takka's Pit Stop diner at Hammerhead service station.



Takka is a dark-skinned man with a bald head and a black beard. He wears a white t-shirt and a white apron with the logo of his restaurant.


Takka is nervous and jumpy, easily startled. He has a passion for food and managing his restaurant. He is loyal to Cid Sophiar whom he considers having turned his life around, and thus wants to associate himself with Cid's business, the Hammerhead service station.


Takka is implied to have been a bit of a delinquent before Cid got his life on track and Takka started working at the diner at Cid's Hammerhead station. The diner is now owned by Takka who manages it alone, and comes up with new dishes to serve to patrons. When Prince Noctis and his friends use all their travel funds to repair their car, Cid directs them to become hunters to earn money, and Takka is one of the first tipsters they will meet.



Takka is a quest-giver. He seeks ingredients to make new dishes for his diner.
