Dissidia Final Fantasy Summon Compendium

Tiamat (ティアマット, Tiamatto?) is a recurring enemy and summoned monster in the Final Fantasy series. Always a dragon, Tiamat is usually one of the later bosses in a game, or at least one of the harder enemies the party encounters. Despite its several reappearances, Tiamat's most prominent appearance is in her debut as one of the Four Fiends.


Final FantasyEdit


Tiamat made her first appearance in the original Final Fantasy, where she is one of the Four Fiends, and is actually the strongest, since she is fought last, in the Flying Fortress. In the Dawn of Souls and 20th Anniversary versions, defeating her opens the way to Whisperwind Cove.

Final Fantasy IIEdit

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

FF8 Tiamat

Tiamat is found in Ultimecia Castle, as one of the bosses locking out commands. It is possible to draw the Guardian Force Eden out of it, without having to fight Ultima Weapon.

Tiamat appears as a recolored Bahamut, and does not have multiple heads like in previous incarnations. It is said to be a former Guardian Force in its Scan information.

Final Fantasy IXEdit


Tiamat first appears as the Wind Guardian against Steiner and Vivi. The whole party only fights it as Tiamat later in Memoria. A crystal clone of Tiamat can also be found as a random encounter at the Crystal World.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Wyrm 3 (FFXI)

Tiamat is a Hyper Notorious Monster found in the depths of the Attohwa Chasm. One of the three "Grand Wyrms" introduced in the Final Fantasy XI: Chains of Promathia expansion along with Jormungand and Vrtra, Tiamat once boasted one of the highest levels and greatest HP pools in the game, estimated at Level 95. Though the three wyrms are known for the lack of good items they give upon death, Tiamat remains the only Grand Wyrm actively sought out by the endgame community today on account of its Herald's Gators, which increases movement speed for particular mage jobs.

Tiamat's spawning conditions are brutal, as she has a brief window in which to spawn once every 30 minutes, beginning 72 hours after her last demise, lasting for exactly 48 hours, requiring Linkshell groups to spend ridiculous spans of time waiting for her to make an appearance. In the Chains of Promathia storyline, Tiamat is perpetually hunted by the Shikaree Sisters, three Mithran hunters who fare from Olzhirya, the Mithran homeland.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit
