The Fiend of Wind, who dominates the heavens from her lofty perch.
—Description
See also: Tiamat

Tiamat (ティアマット, Tiamatto?) (Named TIAMAT in the NES version) is the Fiend of Wind from the original Final Fantasy. She appears atop the Flying Fortress as a multi-headed dragon.

StoryEdit

Four hundred years ago Tiamat tossed the Lufenian civilization into ruin, with only a village, a single airship, and her personal haunt left standing. With the Wind Crystal under her control, the wind itself began to die down.

As the first to awaken, she is the most powerful of the Four Fiends, and uses several powerful attacks. A younger version of Tiamat appears on the fourth basement of the Chaos Shrine 2000 years in the past, where she is slightly stronger. Once she is defeated she dies again, preventing her from ever journeying to the future and wreaking havoc.

BattleEdit

First BattleEdit

FFI Tiamat's Location

Tiamat's location.

Timat utilizes elemental skills and her own physical prowess. Her skill cycle (50% chance to use) is:

ThunderboltPoison GasIcestormBlaze

Tiamat resists the basic three magic elements of fire, ice and lightning, in addition to quake. However, she is vulnerable to stone and poison.

StrategyEdit

Non-elemental magic such as Flare and Holy would be the best to use given her resistances. It is a good idea to cast the Nul- line of spells or use Curtains to shield against her party-wide elemental attacks. If a party member is poisoned, it is probably a better idea for the party's White Wizard to keep using Healara to cure the physical damage instead of wasting turns using Poisona.

Her weaknesses mean that she can be instantly killed either by petrifying or poisoning her. Possible spells include Scourge (can be cast with Razer) or Break. In the Dawn of Souls and future remakes, a Cockatrice Claw can be used in place of the Break spell.

Second BattleEdit

Tiamat is fought again in the Chaos Shrine of the past, along with the other Fiends, so she cannot summon Garland to the past time to form the loop that created Chaos.

She loses her weaknesses and is now more powerful. In addition, she gained the use of magical spells, which she chooses to use 50% of the time. Her skills and skill cycle remain the same as before but are used less often (25% of the time). Her spell cycle is:

Scourge → BlizzaraThundaraFira

Using Haste, Saber and Temper to enhance the physical attackers' strength will make short work of Tiamat.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]In Babylonian myths, Tiamat is a sea goddess and the embodiment of primordial chaos. She creates all the Babylonian gods, then attacks them and is split in two by the god Marduk, who uses her remains to create heaven and earth. In modern times the game Dungeons & Dragons has Tiamat as a chromatic dragon, the Queen of the Evil Dragons and as such the opposing deity to Bahamut, who is a platinum dragon and the King of Benevolent Dragons.

TriviaEdit

  • In Dissidia Final Fantasy, her summon file says she is called the "demonic dragon" and one of the rulers of hell, referring to Tiamat being one of the bosses of Pandaemonium in Final Fantasy II.
  • Even though Tiamat has six heads on her original artwork, she has four heads on the NES/MSX version.
  • Tiamat is a reference to the deity of the same name from Dungeons & Dragons, who is depicted as a villainous, five-headed dragon. Both are named after the ancient monster from Ancient Mesopotamian religion, who is often said to be the mother of dragons.
