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 and rock formations protruding from his other eye socket.
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. 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.
After the fall of Insomnia, Titan is awakened by Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, the Oracle. She asks him to lend his power to Noctis Lucis Caelum, 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 the magitek infantry. Titan does battle while upholding the meteorite shard, only using one arm to fight. After Titan's defeat, the Archaean forges a pact with Noctis and disappears. News spreads across Eos that the astral has vanished from the Disc.
During Leviathan's rampage in Altissia, Titan appears to protect Noctis from its 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.
Noctis obtains Titan at the end of Chapter 4.
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.
