Terra is a playable character in a demonstration produced by Square using characters and settings from Final Fantasy VI. The demo was Square's first foray into realtime 3D graphics, and many assumed it was a precursor to a new Final Fantasy title for the Nintendo 64, but Square had not yet committed to Nintendo's console and much of the technology demonstrated in the demo was later put to use in the rendering of full motion video sequences for Final Fantasy VII and subsequent games for the PlayStation. Terra has blonde hair like in her Yoshitaka Amano artworks, and brandishes a short sword.
Terra appears as a legendary (5-stars) Triple Triad card.

|Totaltotal stats of the card||27|
|Obtain||Random drop from the trial "The Dragon's Neck".|
Terra appears as a non-elemental summon.
Two Terra summons are available to players, Terra and Terra OR. Both phantom stones share the special attack, Trance, which restores 1/5 of max MP to all party members and increases their attack, magic, and speed for two turns. Summoning Terra and Terra OR both cost 1 point from the Consumption Gauge.
Each Terra phantom stone are based on a specific design of Terra from Final Fantasy VI. The design for the Terra summon are based on her default Yoshitaka Amano artwork. Her rank five stone depicts Terra wearing the Slave Crown from the beginning of the game on her head and wields a purple sword. The rank six stone artwork shows Terra without the slave crown and now wields a silver sword. Her final artwork is loosely based on Terra's Trance form, giving her a light-purple hue over her skin and hair and her sword changes to the red blade. The Terra OR stone uses her original sprite from Final Fantasy VI.

Dissidia Final Fantasy (2008)Edit
Terra travels with Onion Knight of Final Fantasy III, and later Cloud Strife of Final Fantasy VII. She once served Chaos and has lost many of her memories of this time. Her control over her powers wanes to the point she attacks her friends. Kefka appears to taunt Terra with her abilities' destructive nature, attempting to sway her back to Chaos's side. Terra rejects his offers, finding hope for a peaceful world where dreams can be fulfilled, including her desire to not have to fear her own abilities.
Her alternate form is a recolor to match her Final Fantasy VI green-haired appearance.
Terra returns in the prequel to Dissidia Final Fantasy alongside all the other characters from the original, but this time is aligned with Chaos. Controlled by Kefka and used as a tool of war, she begins to resist when Kuja weakens Kefka's hold on her, reminded of his own forced servitude. Vaan comes across Kefka as he tortures Terra into submission and helps her escape, taking on a role similar to Locke's. Left by Vaan to hide and wait until he takes her to Cosmos, she sees a group of manikins approaching her throne and fights them to protect Cosmos. The weakened Terra stumbles to Cosmos's throne where the goddess senses she wishes to end the fighting and endows Terra with her powers, allowing her to awaken as a Warrior of Cosmos in the thirteenth cycle.
Her third outfit gives her blue and white garments to match an alternate Yoshitaka Amano artwork. As a bonus downloadable fourth outfit, Terra wears a black and white striped dress that bares her midriff.
In the daily Mognet mail, Terra is expressed by sender Linaly to be a moogle lover.

The Untold Tale in Story Mode has a moogle who helps you out as a Summonstone. But its reaction seems to differs depending on who's fronting the party! Especially the moogle-loving Terra's in charge... Hehehe!

Robbed of free-will since her girlhood, Terra is a young woman feared by many by simple dint of the magic she was born with—the same magic which has brought destruction upon the world time and again. When her mind is at last her own again, she shuns the power that lies within her and loses sight of the path which she must take—until she learns of her own origins and understands the role which only she can fill.
Terra is a default playable character. She is a Spell and Support oriented character. Her Limit Break, Trance, multiplies her Magic Power by 3 after achieving a 30-chain in battle.

Her abilities are Bravery, Firaga, Flood, Gravija and Riot Blade. Her EX abilities are Riot Blade, Maduin, Chaos Wave, Ultima, Blizzard Combo, Holy Combo, Flood, Ultima [VI] and Meltdown [DFF]. She was first introduced as an event ally in the event, "Winter Holiday Campaign" while wearing an exclusive Reindeer suit.

The Terra II summon stone was obtained from inviting a certain number of friends to play Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade.
She was present as an ally during the coinciding events, "Final Fantasy Special Event Parts 1 & 2 - Shattered World" and "Final Fantasy Special Event Parts 1 & 2 - Showdown", in which she was unlocked by clearing the Tower of Rubble stage. Leveling her up to 99 in these events granted the player her individualized SSR weapon, Ichigeki.

Terra's class is Magitek Elite. Her combat role is Offensive Magic.
Terra is weighted as a Red Mage/Summoner hybrid as opposed to being a fighter given that her magic stats far outpace her physical stats, a trait she shares in full with Ashe.

- No. 132: "A woman who appears in tales from another world, where she played a role in the great conflict between humankind and espers. She was born possessing magic, a thing thought to be impossible in her world. The Gestahlian Empire seized control of her mind and made her a Magitek soldier, forcing her to assist them in their goal of world domination. When she is sent to Narshe to seize the frozen esper Valigarmanda, the esper resonates with her and the effect is so profound that it knocks her unconscious. She is freed from the empire's control when she wakes, but loses all memory of who she is."
- No. 133: "A woman who appears in tales from another world, where she played a role in the great conflict between humankind and espers. She was born possessing magic and used by the Gestahlian Empire as tool for murder. In Narshe, she meets a young man named Locke who invites her to join the Returners and rebel against Gestahl. But even as she joins in their fight, she cannot silence the questions in her heart. Who is she? Why she alone able to use magic? And is there something wrong with her is she cannot understand human emotion?"
- No. 134: "A woman who appears in tales from another world, where she played a role in the great conflict between humankind and espers. She was born possessing magic; the child of a union between an esper and a human woman. After being controlled by the Gestahlian Empire for most of her life, she finds herself nearly robbed of emotion. She tries to serve as a bridge between espers and human, but cannot quell the anxiety she feels at being unable to understand the "love" that other people experience. Only after the world is destroyed and it falls to her to care for the orphans left behind destruction does she begin to understand what love is."
- No. 135: "A woman who appears in tales from another world, where she played a role in the great conflict between humankind and espers. Though magic was thought to have been lost from her world, she was born able to use it, and that rare ability made her a target of the Gestahlian Empire as a child. Emperor Gestahl stole her away from her parents and turned her into a tool to be used for his dreams of world domination. Under the empire's control, she was ordered to pilot a set of Magitek armor to invade the mining town of Narshe and seize the esper that had been found encased in ice within the mine there."
- No. 136: "A woman who appears in tales from another world, where she played a role in the great conflict between humankind and espers. She was born possessing magic and used as a tool of destruction by the Gestahlian Empire, which sought to conquer the entire world. The empire stole from her both her freedom and her emotions. She is powerful enough to destroy fifty of the empire's Magitek soldiers in mere minutes. But her future is forever altered when she meets an esper enclosed in ice in a small mining town..."

Terra is represented by several cards, all of them, save for her Yoshitaka Amano esper art cards, being of the Ice attribute, despite Terra being associated with Fire magic in Final Fantasy VI. Her attuning to the Ice element may derive from her first being met in Narshe, a town perpetually covered in snow. Her abilities center on Eidolons, such as increasing the cost of the opponent's Eidolons, searching them from the deck, or being unable to be targeted by them. Her Dissidia art and Amano art cards can use her Trance and Riot Blade abilities.
Terra appears as an opponent and on Triple Triad cards in the version available via the Final Fantasy Portal App. On Easy she uses the rule Same. On Normal she uses Same and Plus. On Hard she uses Chaos and Swap and the rare five star cards of herself and of Celes at the opera can be won from her. She uses the trading rule One.

Terra appeared in Puzzle & Dragons in a Final Fantasy collaboration event starting on March 21, 2016.
