God of Earth. Legends tell of the Archaean absorbing the force of the cataclysmic Meteor as it hurtled down to Eos—and he still shoulders the stone in his deep sleep within the Disc. The Landforger was awakened from that slumber by the Oracle Lunafreya.
Titan, also known as the Archaean, is an Astral who appears in Final Fantasy XV. He is one of the Six and a giant who controls earth. Noctis Lucis Caelum forges a pact with Titan after defeating him at the Disc of Cauthess.
Like the other Astrals, Titan is based on a recurring summon in the Final Fantasy series. He is a giant with brown skin that has white patterns. He has a single, red eye. While in the Disc of Cauthess, he has rock formations protruding from his other eye socket and chest (likely elements of the Meteor of the Six), but after he forges a covenant with Noctis, he no longer has them.
Titan is loyal to Noctis after he proves his worth, even willing to fight another Astral to protect him.
Titan is said to have caught the crystalline meteorite when it fell to Eos in ancient times, known in modern times as the Meteor of the Six. He sleeps while carrying it on his back at the Disc of Cauthess. Though millennia have passed, the meteorite still radiates tremendous heat. It is said the meteorite broke into pieces when it was caught by Titan, and its shards are used by EXINERIS Industries to power the town of Lestallum.
Titan has been sleeping since the Great War of Old, the last time he was known to be active. Tremors at times emanate from the Disc, which people call "Titan's snoring" as per the legend that he dwells under the Meteor.
After the fall of Insomnia, Titan is awakened by Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, the Oracle. She asks him to lend his power to Noctis, and thus the Archaean calls out to the prince by sending him visions that induce strong headaches.
The chancellor of Niflheim, Ardyn Izunia, takes Noctis and his friends to the Disc of Cauthess where they battle Titan, who is assaulted by Niflheim's magitek infantry. Titan does battle while upholding the meteorite, only using one arm to fight. Niflheim sends hordes of magitek troops to attack Titan while trying to restrain him. After Noctis proves his worth to Titan, the Archaean forges a pact with him and disappears. News spreads across Eos that both the Astral and the Meteor have vanished from the Disc. High Commander Ravus Nox Fleuret broadcasts that Niflheim quelled the Archaean who had "awoken in a fit of rage", "averting disaster".
During Leviathan's Revelation in Altissia, Titan appears to protect Noctis from her last act of malevolence, being that of an enormous tsunami that washes over nearly all of Altissia. Titan raises up a large earthen wall to ensure Noctis's and Lunafreya's safety as the two are severely exhausted from the Hydraen's trial, but it breaks during the wave's crash. Titan continues to protect Noctis by fending off the remaining imperial forces.
After Noctis disappears inside the Crystal, the world is enveloped in the Long Night. Mankind comes together to defend the remains of civilization in wait for Noctis's return as the True King. The Astrals forgive the Kingsglaive for their betrayal of the crown after they prove they want to protect the world. Titan, alongside the other Astrals, appears to the Glaives chosen to protect Angelgard, the island where the True King is to awaken.
Noctis obtains Titan at the end of Chapter 4.
Proof that Noctis has received Titan’s blessing. The Archaean may come to his aid in a moment of true peril.
Each Astral has its own requirements to be considered during the "summon roll", which happens every 10 seconds. While possible to summon during the first roll, it is rare. The player can summon once per battle. Titan has a better chance of appearing the more Noctis's allies are in Danger or KO states. The player will have to be in a large enough open area to call him.
When summoned, Titan appears in the distance and hurls a large piece of earth at Noctis's enemies. This causes several gigantic pillars of rock to rise from underground to cause additional damage. If summoned in the Adamantoise battle, he has a unique animation.
Titan served as a boss in the "Trial of Titan" demo at E3 2016.
Titans were members of the second order of divine beings in Greek mythology. They were descendants of the primordial deities born from the Chaos, and they preceded the gods of Olympus, who went on to overthrow them.
- Titan was going to appear in Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae, but it was determined he was too integral to the story of Final Fantasy XV to be included and was replaced with Ramuh.
- A glitch in Final Fantasy XV Episode Duscae enables Noctis to travel beyond the demo's borders and find Titan's model.
- In Final Fantasy XV Titan is holding a meteorite on his shoulders. In Greek mythology, Atlas sided with the Titans against the Olympians, and when many of them were condemned to Tartarus, Atlas was condemned to stand at the western edge of Gaia and hold up The Heavens on his shoulders.
